'The hard way is the best way, not because it is the best way, but because it is the hard way'

Yui6i6

My credo, previously noted here and here but every couple years I like to see it afresh, to remind myself of what it's all about.

Who's your rock star? My favorite TV commercial of the week

I saw it last night on the National Geographic Channel.

At first I didn't realize what was going on since I watch commercials MOS (mit out sound) but a few seconds in I realized it had potential.

You GO Ajay Bhatt.

'The Public Purse' — by Simon Perry

1gvbhm

"The red granite and stainless steel sculpture of an oversized snap-close change pouch is located in Melbourne, Australia, within the Bourke Street Mall. It was designed in 1994 as part of the city’s initiative to introduce unique public seating."

Jkj

"The artwork is meant to work both conceptually and poetically by commenting on the commercial nature of its surrounding and the interaction between the city and its citizens."
