Hypernova, from Iran. "Stop The Madness" (Here is a cover of "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" as well.
Teapacks, this year's Israeli Eurovision entry. "Push The Button"
So much for the "Jimmy Carter of Iran". At least Ahmadinejad (pretty much the Ronald Reagan model: inspiring rhetoric; high debts) has more integrity, fruitcake-wise. I say, if we have a dialogue with Iran, Marjane Satrapi is the one I want to talk to. (Of course, for official representation of the US, Art Spiegelman would cover state matters. )

word of praise he recieved today.
But an observation: his obit today in the Times is amazing. Presidents
don't get this kind of love. Much the way that getting a good table or a
tough reservation in a popular restaurant in NYC can require that you be
either a famous heart surgeon or a busboy in that restaurant-- If having a
good obit is important to you, consider a career in journalism.

Check out Morrison & Quitely's All Star Superman? The latest has a reworking of Bizarro that's pretty good. Of course, Alan Moore did it 20 years ago..."Hello, Superman, Hello.." Still, in a world without Curt Swan, we do the best we can.
Taschen has a thick, lavishly illustrated (architecture porn?) book called "Architecture Now! 4". One T. Han Tilluca calls it "A 'K-Tel' collection of the top 40".
Speaking of porn, here is a deconstruction of food porn & restaurant reviews which rocks (via, I think, BoingBoing, but worth posting anyhow).
And, wait, "Make The Logo Bigger" (via Jay O'Connell) A song, great comments from graphic designers.
Finally, a documentary about Helvetica. "Visually, the film delivers what it promises: Lots of Helvetica. In all forms."

browser compatiblility. And then, given the speed of this app, tried out
Picassa. WOW. Virtual PC was never like this. And neither is iPhoto.
Until Google makes Picassa for the Mac, I have a great new tool and it is just sitting in my Dock along with my Mac apps.
Great Stuff.Comment: My brother, Adam, says: "Yes, aren't chametz and Picassa great?" Passover finally ended with a bowl of spicy ramen while the slideshow rolled.
