The Daily Three

As you may or may not be aware. Twinkies are delicious. They are also quite malicious. Not only are they unhealthy, but along with cockroaches, when the nuclear apocalypse comes--and I have it on good authority from a guy I met on the street that it'll be here any day now unless we do some heavy repenting--they'll be the only thing left. What makes them so savory and long-lasting? Photographer Dwight Eschliman gives you a closer look here. (via Cool Hunting).

My friend sent me a link the other day to a website for small production company called Whitestone Motion Pictures. They've got about 10 films up on the site at the moment. Last night, I took time out o fmy busy schedule to watch Heartless: The Story of the Tin Man, a 20 minute short film that tells the backstory to world's most lovable oil junkie (based on the story provided in the original The Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum). It was stellar. The acting was just fine, but aesthetically it was wonderful, and the original music was perfect. I look forward to watching more, as should you.

It's a fancy box of crayons. But not jsut any crayons. For the upcoming World Cup, Nike and various others have collaborated on the "Write the Future" campaign. Included in this neat (the only word to describe it, really) box set are six hand-carved crayon by crayon carver (I shit you not) Diem Chau. Now, ordinarily I would think this absurd, but the elegance and passion with which this was seemingly put together is undeniable. Take a look at more shots here. Very impressive. (via NOTCOT)
