I know I'm constantly in awe of inventive talent. For me, the quirkier and more unusual, the better. Just look at this clock by Dutch designer Christiaan Postma and tell me it doesn't make it easier to watch time disappear. Literally. From his website, an explanation on how he made his timekeeper.
"The starting point with this project was a personal study about form & time. I put together more than 150 individual clockworks and made them work together to become one clock. I show the progress of time by letting the numbers be written in words by the clockworks. Reading clockwise, the time being visible through a word and readable by the completeness of the word, 12 words from one to twelve." Clock is 140 by 140 cm.
Storm Troopers never looked this cute before...
Apparently Waihey started it and then the troopers took on a life of their own. Scene montages to delight any Star Wars-loving soul.

Vent your anger by serving them with a custom made parking notice that is bound to stop their annoying habits in their parking tracks. Print these babies at home and keep a couple of them in your glove box for ready use. Hope to God that no one breaks your windshield in retaliation. From the folks at (look below)
Things Raul knows about the night
I've featured Heading East on my blog before. Raul Gutierrez, its author, has to be one of my all-time favorite bloggers. He's a fantastic photographer, spotlights other great artists, writes with such simplicity and beauty that days later, I'm left mulling over the images he paints with his words. I think he is simply fabulous and this recent post titled Things I know About the Night, is wonderful not only because of what he wrote but because the responses were a great second act.
Alright then, are you done looking? Cork up the bottle and put it back where you found it for someone else to come along and discover. Next week at this same time, another Found Wednesday.
