Now that's a track

DJ Food - Giant (Instrumental) by Ninja Tune
I listen to a lot of instrumental music, often beat heavy/driven. While some only make use of a few nice samples, others are truly full bodied tracks such as this one. An excellent example. Long live Solid Steel, Ninja Tune, and Strictly Kev (aka DJ Food).

The streak continues

Okay third map related graphic post in a row! Transit Authority Figures, have a great name and produce some awesome design products. They make imaginary subway maps complete with details such as purposed lines that are planed for the future. They've even made one for the Ocean City, MD and Delaware beach area, which I've been to on a number of occasions. But more familiar to the eye maybe the Cape, which you can see here on their site.

Print and Send

I know, I know, this is my second Google maps post in a row. I can help it, if you haven't noticed I like map related stuff. Anyway here is a neat concept project by students Rahul Mahtani and Yofred Moik at Syracuse University. Basically Gmail would have a built in "send envelope" option, which would create an envelope with gmaps and route information using your and your recipients address, for a really nice effect. Your message of course being contained inside. Perhaps this is the communication bridge the elderly are looking for! I kid, they wouldn't get it.
