Ipod branding

What is the most exclusive corporate gift? Yup, a branded Ipod.
The ultimate gadget for the manager, salesman or executive. Corporate branding, fancy colors for Ipod, Nano or Ibook: Colorware does it. Rip you bankaccount and be prepared to spent money. Apple Retailprice for an Ibook is $999. A special Colorwareversion is $1500. $500 for coloring. Or just visit your local warehouse and buy a bucket of fancy paint for $5 and d.i.y in 5 minutes (dry time not included)

The risk of a Chinese movie bootleg

Great fun! What happens when you buy an illegal Star Wars bootleg in China and activate "English subtitles" on your DVD? Then you can enjoy Star Wars in "traditional Engrish".

Not really Van Gogh, but the sunflowers on my dinnertable.
Quite useless for you readers. But I have made a commitment to myself to draw everyday at least one page in my moleskine.

Filling your Ipod

There are many sources on the Net to get MP3's.
Newsgroups, Bittorrent, Limewire. But there are also some interesting blogs where you can find some 'material' to fill you Ipod.
Most of the time they link to a free online storage server like Rapidshare [1x 50 meg. download per hour for free] So when an album is split into more archives you need some patience. Other blogs are specialized in "Open Dir Protocol".
Here are some:

I like to draw, but my drawing needs improvement. The only way to accomplish better drawing is practise, practise, practise.
