Weekend Links: Transformer Owl

I wish I could remember these amazing uses for ordinary household items before I chuck out some of them out! Find out helpful ways to use dryer clothes, nail polish, hair dryers, plastic cups and more ... and then you may want to print it out for reference!

As someone who needs five computers to do her day job (produce a weekly paper), I appreciate these very cool Extreme Workstations (and wish mine were half as rad). Does anyone here have an enviable desk setup?

Extra! Extra! Read all about it: the amazing Transformer Owl (though to steal an idea from the comments, it's definitely a lot like a Pokemon character).

Beware, that which is seen cannot be unseen! Slashfilm has a great post about the ubiquity of orange/blue contrast in movie posters.

As another "caution," do not look at these picture of the least appetizing foods ever BEFORE you eat a meal. Or directly after. Certainly not during!

For those who enjoy the hilarity of those recent Old Spice commercials, a nice parody from a campus library where the object is not to smell like this man, but study like him (not as dorky as it sounds, I swear!)

This one goes out to the graphic designers and gamers: Geekosystem talked to Ray Larabie, who's designed fonts for lots of games, including Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Dragon Age: Origins, and Mass Effect. The interview touches on retro gaming fonts, the technical challenges presented by TV rendering, and the infernal prevalence of Handel Gothic in every sci-fi game ever.
