A State of Euphoria

I've been having this state of euphoria every since I came back from New York. It has been almost two months and it hasn't subsided. There's this constant thought of "Something great is going to happen" appearing in my mind.

According to a Businessweek podcast, Why You Should Vacation, effects from holidays normally last up to two weeks after the holiday.

Something great is going to happen. I can feel it.

G9 Streets of Tokyo

Two web pages with some great photos to share today. Both were shot by Canon G9s. Cool. Click on the photos to go to their web pages.


This is a 'secret' page with photos shot on the streets of Tokyo. Has a very good nitty gritty feel.


And this is from a Rush concert. I have no idea what band that is but the photos are great.

So What If She's Found Dead In Her Bedroom


I can't for once see the selling point of this article.

Did her occupation play a role in her death? Would this article be published if the accountant was 45 years old? Or was a guy? If a 25 year old school teacher was found dead tomorrow would it make the news? Was premature death the selling point?

Color Management

Ever wonder how come when you're in Lightroom or Photoshop, your photos look great. When you export or save as a jpeg for web publishing, it looks different?

Learn the theory behind that in this cool geeky website.


If you're a photographer, you might want to check out cambridgeincolour.com. Equally geeky and intense.

Zoom

This is really an amazing website that blows my mind.
Simple concept, perfect execution.

Great photos too.

Note that you'll need Shockwave player to run the website.

Pierced

Yesterday on the train, I was awoken by a lady who spoke a bit too loudly on her handphone. It was also piercing, like having a spear through one ear and out of the next.

Here's a snippet of the conversation, or whatever I can recall:

"Silver Spoon! Remember the place we had chicken that day?! The chicken! Remember the chicken? I don't want to wait for you at the toilet! It's very hot down there! Ok! You just wait for me at Woodlands MRT! You better come down! You're already late! Silver Spoon! Call me at 5.30pm regardless of whether you reach there or not! Call me!"

Now what do I do with all these useless information?
