Nintendo is the way to go.

Hello friends.

I stumbled upon this very creative marketing tool that a MC from Detroit used. I won't get into too much detail but trust me, just finish the game and you'll see.






How can it get any better than that?

Weather

Twas a fantastic day today. Spring feels like its right around the corner.

Keeping on the weather topic...check out this site.


It is a analog way of looking at the weather. Pick your city (Chicago!) or just look at the imagery in the about section. Check it out. 

ps. Why does Kanye have to ruin all that is good in music?

Song/Video of the Week

Okay...we've been busy.

Yet, never to busy for new music.



Friendly Fires
are from St Albans, Hertfordshire. UK kids. The self-titled CD is not brand new as you can tell by their 4 or 5 videos. The first video is song is called Paris. The next video was featured in a Wii commercial so you may recognize it.




I can't stop listening to this album. If these guys don't get you moving, I don't know what will.

Back to work.

This song comes from Casiokids. They hail from Norway and this song is damn catchy. Damn catchy.

Surfing is Creative

Like most people...we at Baroke spend a lot of time surfing the web for inspiration and/or laughs. They come in all different shapes and forms. We will start with Christoph Niemann.

Christoph is a great illustrator and graphic designer. You can see a lot of his work on his website. He also writes for the NY Times, where he wrote a blog about legos and their simplicity. It's great.



Another hilarious thing...maybe not to all people. A kid had some dental work done and was completely gassed out. I had this feeling when my wisdom teeth were removed. My mom said I was talking crazy. I can relate to this feeling.



Thanks to our industrial design friends for that video.
