Cowboys and Aliens

There were a few (very few) good scenes but I was a little disappointed with the slow pace and lack of any real character development. For such a star studded cast it felt empty, sorta like:

This is a movie. It has Cowboys. Aliens. And Indians, too. They fight.

This is a rental so you can fast forward through the boring parts.


Ok- Boey isn’t a photographer per se, he is a Styrofoam Cup Artist, but holy cow…amazing work!!

Boey is a very interesting artist to me because he has successfully synergized his creative talents and ideas:

– Outstanding artistic talent
– Unique Media Concept
– Confidence in what he is offering
– Savvy Marketing
– Great sense of humor….

What do you get when you combine all these together? A fantastic art based business doing something he loves. Boey has demonstrated that with a little talent and vision, you don’t need to be working that 9-5 job and he did so by doing something DIFFERENT. That is the key: Be different.

Boey sells his hand drawn styrofoam cups for hundreds of dollars (and sometimes much more). You can find some of his cups on sale from the link at the end of this article for those of you who are interested.

Be absolutely sure to check out his Flickr Page – it is Jaw DROPPING: Boey on FlickrBoey also keeps a very interesting blog in most of his entries are cartoons of something he did that day. He has a very sharp wit.I highly recommend checking out some of his websites, especially his blog and flickr page:

Zombie Gunship | Awesome iPhone Game

When I first heard about this game I thought to myself “They cannot be serious….” Turns out, it is an extremely cool game. Thats right, you are a Gunner of a AC-130 Gunship protecting humans as they run to a bunker from, you guessed it….endless hordes of Zombies.

What is so interesting to me is how well they executed this idea, and how it is about to become the number one game on iTunes (yes, it looks poised to unthrone Angry Birds). I read a little bit about the development and they did their homework and hired some really great people. The sound of the game is outstanding. As a business Model, these little iPhone games can be home runs if they are properly executed. Back in May, Angry Birds had been downloaded 100 Million times. That is truly ridiculous, especially when 70 Million of them were of the $1 variety. Not too shabby for a little software company.

Though there is plenty of competition, if you have a great game idea, it would be worth taking a swing at it. It already has me thinking…..Zombie Gunship on iTunes
