Gas prices continue to rise. Everywhere around the world people are feeling that smoldering hole in their pocket continue to get hotter and hotter. Eventually it will burst into flames and leave a giant 3rd degree burn on your buttocks (and if your a lady, it’ll burn a hole through your purse like those precious stones did in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom). With other traditional sources of energy becoming depleted as well, opinions on where to find fuel have been shifting considerably. Soo how in this infographic by GOOD.

He also teamed up with Mandy-Lyn Antoniou and did line work over her photography, which is possibly some of my favorite work by him (and her photography is incredible by itself).

Technology will play a key role in offering people around the world an opportunity to get an excellent education, all for just your time.
With the responsibilities of work, family, and friends, there’s often little time left at the end of the day to spend on your own personal interests. People are constantly pulling at you from every angle, trying with all their collective might to stop you from achieving your goals. What would you do with an extra two hours in your day?

I’m constantly reminded of the scene from Empire Records when they open the record store, and get to choose an opening song to blare and sing along to at the top of their lungs, and get amped about starting the workday.
