HARRY POTTER FANS WATCH THIS
HOLY SHIT IT IS VERY VERY VERY VERY COOL
Oh my gosh this is legit one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen in my life! This is SO COOL, seriously just click on it, oh my gosh.
This is how I imagined wizard duels I actually like this better than the duels in the movie because there are spells that actually do things other than make stuff explode.If I didn’t know better I would have thought that this was professionally made, WOW. <3
THIS IS SO FUCKING COOL EVERYONE WATCH THIS NOW
I don’t usually reblog things, but this is RAD.
Once upon a database query, while I pondered weak security,
And many avenues of access via backdoor,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a wiretapping,
As of some one gently sniffing, sniffing at our server’s door.
“‘Tis some hacker,” I muttered, “tapping at our server door
Or just a virus, nothing more.”

Calligraffiti - The Graphic Art of Niels “SHOE” Meulman’ is an impressive publication that presents a large selection of typographic works by Niels Shoe Meulman arranged in a uniquely simplistic manner; every spread presents two interacting visuals on its opposing pages. This repeating duality makes this book much more than just a collection of the artist’s best work; it unveils the basis of all graphic art.
The print finish on Calligraffiti’s cover is particularly eye-catching. A strong white masthead made with custom lettering by Niels Meulman is pressed into thick, black stock. The white type is then finished with a cello glaze to maximise its shine and contrast. There’s no paragraph on the back cover explaining who Meulman is or what the book might include. Instead, you will find 12 of Meulman’s most interesting logotypes. This decision is somewhat unconventional, as it leaves the content of the book fairly unknown to the average reader. However, it lets the work do the talking and invites those who are curious to open the book for more.

Oh hey there, Penguin Classics…
For an awesomely heartwarming project entitled If Only For a Second, a Belgian cancer charity called the Mimi Foundation invited 20 cancer patients to participate in a very unusual makeover experience.
Inspired by the statements such as, “You know what I miss the most? Being carefree.”, the purpose of the project was to give participants a moment in which they completely forgot about their illness. Each subject was asked to sit with their eyes closed as their hair and makeup were professionally redone.
At the last moment, they were placed in front of a two-way mirror and allowed to open their eyes. Each person’s reaction—of astonishment, laughter, and everything in between—was then captured by photographer Vincent Dixon.
"Every photo is followed by a caption, the date and the time the photo was taken and most importantly, the exact second when the person forgot about their disease. Going through this book, the reader is carried away by laughter, giggles and carefree faces. Readers will even be surprised to have on their own faces… a smile. This is the heart of the idea of the ‘If only for a second’ project, to spread smiles and happiness."
Click here to was a short video about this moving project in which we actually get to watch some of these people open their eyes to discover their unexpectedly outrageous new looks. It’s true, you’ll find yourself gaping and smiling right along with them. (And, if you’re anything like us, you’ll need a hanky, but it’s absolutely worth it.)
Stay tuned for a really exciting announcement coming tomorrow morning!
