We should look to our founding fathers about what real hope means.

Mixtape Wall is a showcase of appealing, artistic and inspirational Mixtape Covers by designers around the world.

I’ve been a huge fan of the mixtape since about ‘86. I used to DJ and craft my own mixtapes (back then, they were also called pause tapes) when I was a teen. I spent hours, days, weeks, spinning records, looking for that perfect beat to blend.

Facebook Fail?

Recently, I mentioned starting a Facebook fan page with Gina; Gym.Tanning.Laundry (GTL).

As of this moment, 4:10 PM, February 4th, 2010, the page has attracted 18,432 fans. In less than a month…pretty cool, huh? Well, not so much. I’ve lost my administrator privileges. My publishing rights have been blocked by FB.

A couple of days ago, I received an email from FB asking me to confirm my affiliation with the site. Below is the email.

“Our records indicate that you are currently the admin of a Facebook Page with a large number of fans, Gym.Tanning.Laundry (GTL). To ensure a positive user experience, we require admins of large Pages to confirm their affiliation with the brand, business, person, or entity that their Page represents. Please use the following link to authenticate your Page.”

So, I did. I attempted to authenticate the GTL fan page. What a Facebook Fail. Our friends at FB sent me a second email.

“The Page “Gym.Tanning.Laundry (GTL)” has had its publishing rights blocked because it violates our Pages Terms of Use”

Damn son…. That sucks! Haha. However, I’ve learned a little bit about FB Fan Pages and Insights. So, no love lost here.

Originally, Gina and I began this fan page because we heard the GTL moniker while watching an episode of the MTV reality show, Jersey Shore. We both thought it was clever and a great catchphrase.

Onto the next I suppose…

100 Amazing Futuristic Design Concepts

This is another link I hope you enjoy. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’ve been sorting through older bookmarks of design inspiration. This one is all about concept designers also referred to as “visual futurists”. Remember that these are all just conceptual, you can’t buy them yet!

The Audi Shark – Flying Sportscar

This impressive concept design by Kazim Doku is a flying sportscar. Meant to combine the raciness of motorcycles with the sleekness of aircraft, the Audi shark is the answer to our collective sci-fi dreams. This award-winning concept design is a two-seater that offers its passengers “strong sensations and high levels of safety”.

Spokeless Wheels Bike

Spokeless Wheels Bike - Created by Bradford Waugh

This bike concept was created by Bradford Waugh. The concept completely replaces the traditional gear system of a mainstream bike with one that allows for spokeless wheels.

For the rest of the futuristic design concepts, peep the link.
