🏅 This is pretty cool, I’ve been written about on a graphics blog called trend hunter. Screenshot.

The above picture “HillSide” was from 2010, with model Natalie.

If you squint hard enough to see through the dozens of ads, social links, you can see some of my work.

Here’s what they had to say:

Once in a while you may come across an art form that is fresh and unique, invades your senses and evokes emotion. Such are the captivating collages created by artist David Sword, who blends bold images with breathtaking beauty.

David Sword’s work is alluring to say the least. His modern and surreal approach to the traditional form of collage may leave the observer wanting more. Feel free to browse through this gallery which features some of David Sword’s captivating collages.


☕️ PC coffee Maker Annoying Beeping. This isn’t related to this website, this is purely something I’m posting for the good of mankind:

I bought a PC coffee maker, it was more expensive then it should of been, but it looked good in my new kitchen and I knew it would pay for itself eventually.

Worked fine, did the job for months – then about 8 months in, after the brew cycle (4-5minutes) the most annoying, loud beeping would occur. It was as if the danm machine was whining for attention.

Turns out it was, in the manual that I obviously threw out because who keeps stuff like that, it mentions a cleaning reminder setting, that beeps until you hold down the “Auto” button for three seconds to acknowledge “yes I’ve cleaned you”. From the Manual

Your coffee maker is equipped with a cleaning reminder alarm. When your coffee maker has been used 200 times, it will beep to remind you to clean it. To turn off the beeping simply press the AUTO button for 3 seconds. The sound will stop and the coffee makers internal counter will reset to zero,

Kudos to the makers for installing a feature to prevent people from getting sick or keep the coffee at it’s best – but shame on you for not writting it on the machine itself and expecting everyone to keep the box+manual.
