Inspiration of the Day

Since I basically troll through websites and look at other people’s designs, I thought it’d be cool to post some designs and art I really like, and put credit where credit is due. Today’s inspirations are from Behance because I was looking for job postings and got sidetracked.

March Is Awesome 2011 #4

MIA '11

This is the First Annual March Is Awesome event! The amount to which I love my very own month of March is absurd; my birthday, my brother’s birthday, many of my friends’ birthdays, the beginning of spring, and much, much more! Will you join me in my celebration of March? Alright!

March 4th

In The Before Times: Way back in 1861, Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated for his first term as President of the United States.

Celebrity Birthdays: Chaz Bono, son of Sonny and Cher, is an amazing and inspirational figure in LGBT rights and activism, and it’s his birthday today!

DVDs and Movies: There are a ton of movies coming out today in theatres. I want to see Rango, an animated feature film about a chameleon stranded in the desert, The Adjustment Bureau, an intellectual thriller about destiny and who controls it, and HappyThankYouMorePlease, a dramedy about six New Yorkers coming to terms with being adults.

Other: Today is one of my best friends’ birthday! Happy birthday, Becca! ♥ Becca and I have been friends since, oh, sixth grade? She is just lovely, and adorable, and smart, and amazing all around.

As usual, if you know of any other exciting things happening today, feel free to leave them in the comments! Thanks for playing!

March 3rd

In The Before Times: In 1969, Apollo 9 was launched to test out the Lunar Module, and as a result, it was the first manned flight with a Lunar Module. This was information critical to the actual moon landing later that year on July 20th.

Celebrity Birthdays: March 3rd is Julie Bowen‘s birthday! Julie Bowen is on one of my favourite comedies: Modern Family! She is lovely and hilarious!

What’s happening today?: In Japan, Hinamatsuri (Doll Festival) is celebrated on March 3rd. Japanese culture just fascinates me.

Other: Today is one of my best friends’ mother’s birthday. She (and the whole family, really) has been so lovely and kind to me, even though I just bum around their house. Happy birthday, Marilyn! ♥

Deadpool and the movie

So, since this blog and I are still getting to know each other, let me introduce my latest obsession: Deadpool. This, my friends, is Deadpool:

Deadpool

He loves Bea Arthur, he speaks in yellow speech bubbles, he's certifiably insane, and he loves the ladies. What a catch.

Recently, hes gotten quite a lot of popularity since he was in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a couple video games (including the recent Marvel VS Capcom 3), his own slew of comic books. He’s had at least two slightly old-ish series, six mini-series, and is currently in the comics Deadpool, Deadpool Corps, and Deadpool Team-Up. You can read more about him here.

March 2nd

On This Day: In 1983, compact discs were finally released, for the first time, internationally. And thus began the torrid love affair with humans and CDs until MP3s were invented. I still like buying CDs; I love cover art! I can’t help it.

Celebrity Birthdays: Today is Jon Bon Jovi’s birthday! I think we should all sing “Livin’ on a Prayer” to celebrate. (Well, you guys can sing your favourite Bon Jovi song, but this one’s mine!)

What’s happening today?: March 2nd is Texas Independence Day – a day when settlers in Texas officially broke off from Mexico and became the state of Texas. This is an official holiday in Texas! I wonder if people get the day off…?

Other: The iPad 2 was announced today, and will be available for purchase on March 11th!
