Good Things Should Never End is the weirdest, oddest website I've ever been to. So why would I be talking about it? Because despite its peculiarities the art and animation is captivating. From bumbling bees to a senile fisherman you never know what you'll find on this website. Oh! I forgot to tell you the best part about this site - it's infinite. That means, well what does it mean? Perhaps you should check out this insanely cool site for yourself ;)

These are pictures and art that relates to "structure". The term structure can be defined in many ways. Artocracy defines it as "a complex system of parts seen as a whole, a mode of organization, a system of beliefs or relations, or a certain pattern of activity". Decide for yourself whic defenition these pictures fit best.

This is my cousin Mark Wolf. He's an awsome filmmaker and producer in Hawaii and a really fun person to hang out with. He's even made a film that was shown in the National Democratic Nominating Convention. If you want to check out his artistic videos go to http://www.hdology.com/

Friends With You, a Miami based art group, has redifined the phrase "unleash your inner child". The Friends With You message is to share the message of "magic, luck, and friendship with the global community". But one thing is sure from their magical, whimsical creations - whether you're an adult or a child, the magic that Friends With You creates is one of a kind!

Some people suggest that capsule buildings are the way of the future. A new example of this Metabolist style is the innovative Nakagin Capsule Tower. So what is Metabolism architecture? It's when the buildings style focuses of adaptable, growing and interchangable building designs.
Designed by the late architect Kurokawa Kisho this tower is a prototype of sorts for future business offices and hotels in Japan and, maybe, the rest of the world. The 14-story tower in the Shimbashi district of Tokyo consists of 140 individual capsules that can be used for office space or as apartments. In addition to the futuristic look this tower portrays, the Capsule Tower's capsules can be replaced and changed around when need be. Unfortunately, the tower's maitenance and the lack of support in preserving this architectural marvel have caused locals to decide to demolish the tower in two years unless a proper preservation plan can be created. I for one think that this tower should be saved! Comment if you agree or disagree.
