LET ME WIN YOUR HEART AND MIND OR I’LL BURN YOUR GODDAMN HUT DOWN
The often dark and powerful haiku-like sayings and mottos engraved on the side of the old chrome Zippo’s often reflected themes of delusion, death, drugs, or sex. It was a way for the soldier’s to express who they were, and how they felt. Many were like tattoos not worn on the body, but carried in a pocket. The old Zippo’s live on today as American folk art, and a haunting reminder of a confusing and painful time for the men who were there.

Illustrative Movie Poster feat. Memorable Parts, Pieces & Props by Emma Butler
This poster series was inspired as an alternative to the ever-popular "minimalist movie poster" trend currently floating about on the web. On the opposite end of the spectrum, these posters are made up of all the memorable parts, pieces & props that feature in some of my favourite movies; Back to the Future, Top Gun, Juno, Mighty Ducks and Forrest Gump.
The song was performed by characters from puppet group The Muppets in 2009. The cover is perhaps best known for its music video, which was originally posted on YouTube on November 23, 2009 before the release of the track. The video features multiple Muppets characters singing partially modified lyrics of the original song and garnered over seven million hits within its first week of release.
The video and song is an official production of The Muppets Studio. The success of the video caused the cover to be released as a single on December 13, 2009, where it peaked at #19 on the iTunes chart, but only reached #32 on the UK Singles Chart.
Awesome info-graphics project by Toby Ng.
If the world were a village of 100 people, how would the composition be? This set of 20 posters is built on statistics about the spread of population around the world under various classifications. The numbers are turned into graphics to give another sense a touch – Look, this is the world we are living in.
Cool stuff around the web
