This site showcases the (mostly) digital work of Andrew DiFiore from both Virtual Arts Studios and answerYES Interactive as well as random thoughts and experimental projects too volatile to be contained anywhere else.

    Overwhelmed by Tim McMorris

    This could be the anthem of any man whose ever been madly in love… and still is. Well done Tim.

    From the first time I saw you
    I knew that you’d be mine

    And from the first glance you gave
    My world it slowed, you stopped the time

    And in that moment I could see all of the things that we would be
    You were the girl I was waiting for, that I would ask to marry me

    Like the beauty of the sun you light my life so I can see
    You make me laugh and show me how, just how good this life can be
    And in our moments filled with joy, is where I live, where I am free
    Lay in my arms, I’ll hold you tight, just like you like, continually

    And I am, overwhelmed, by you
    Am, overcome with joy
    You’ve, taken me higher, and shown me what love can do
    Where would I go, or be, without you

    There’s something in your smile that gives me strength to carry on
    And there something in your words that lingers even when your gone
    Oh I’ve dreamt, that a time like this would come, fulfill my life
    Who could of known the one who’d bring it here would be my lovely wife

    I could sing a thousand songs about you still that would not do
    There’s a million tiny things that make the things that you do, you
    I wouldn’t trade our time together, wouldn’t trade for anything
    Cause nothing else here in the world can bring the happiness you bring

    And I am, overwhelmed, by you
    Am, over come with joy
    You’ve, taken me higher, and shown me what love can do
    Where would I go, or be, without you

    Jonathan Coulton did an acoustic cover of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 Baby Got Back back in 2005. Apparently, the creators of Glee liked his rendition so much that they did a cover of his cover… and now Coulton is suing FOX . Maybe. Probably not. But fans on both sides are tweeting angrily.

    Listen to both beat by beat in the player above and judge for yourself.

    It is an interesting copyright quandary but I think Coulton just wanted a heads up and a little credit. Read the full write up on Mashable.

    Google Earth Eyes North Korea

    Now that North Korea has declared the US their “archenemy” (see Steve Colbert’s hilarious take on this), I guess it is a good thing Google Earth now enables every American citizen to keep a watchful eye on Kim Jong-un and the rest of Pyongyang. Here is a “secret” prison called Camp 22 recently revealed by Google Earth.

    In celebration of 40 years Down Under, McDonald’s will change the name of 13 restaurants to Macca’s for a month starting on Australia Day (that be today, mate).

    Give a lot of credit to McDonald’s for having fun with their brand… and to the ballsy Mad Men at DDB who pitched it.

    Cool Tool of the Month: Google Drive

    It goes without saying that Google offers up a lot of “cool tools” so it should not be surprising that any number of Google products qualify to be featured here. Some tools are better than others but Google as a company encourages its developers and engineers to experiment… and we “early adopters” benefit as informal beta testers. This has been a trend for many years. Innovate first, profit later, because you may not know just what you have until the crowdsource shows you the way.

    This month’s Cool Tool is Google Drive. With Google Drive you get up to 5 GB of disk space on Google’s cloud that can store any type of file. For $2.50 a month you can upgrade to 25 GB.

    Google Docs is now part of Google Drive so you can access your files anywhere, anytime, and share them and edit them with others in real time. That seems pretty cool.
