First stop B-More's National Aquarium. What is it about going to the aquarium that makes you feel like a kid again?
If I saw this in the water while swimming, I think I would have a heart-attack!

Goodbye Baltimore. I'll be back again for Crab Feast!

Collecting random objects is an obsession for us here at RANDOM OBJECTS. It does not matter whether we are walking on a beach or on city streets; we'll find something to photograph or bring home with us! We literally have shelves devoted to the various objects we have collected. All of these objects have their own story behind them. Sea shells found after hurricane Gustav in Jamaica, a broken hand painted cross from Todos Santos, Mexico... we are always on the lookout for intriguing items!
I want to hear about, or see, your personal collections of random objects. Where did you find them? What's the story behind these items? We want to know!

Okinawa’s "Kuroshio Sea" is the world’s second largest aquarium. I don't know why watching fish swim gracefully through the water is so fascinating to me (I'm especially loving the whale sharks and manta rays). I need to see this in person; it must be an amazing experience!
... Great song too!

The movie "Moonwalker" really shot Smooth Criminal into legendary status for me. When I saw Michael do the "MOVE" (as me and my friends refer to it as), you know the one, when he seems to defy the laws of physics by leaning all the way forward.... let me tell you I must have rewound that move until the VHS tape nearly popped! More than 10+ years later and I'm still trying to figure out how he did that? R.I.P. MJ, YOU ARE STILL THE MAN!!!!

Due to the numerous requests asking for a poster version of our popular Pigeons Love NY design, we decided to get some pressed up! These posters were hand silk-screened on 100# White, thick chipboard (cardboard) stock, with matte acrylic water based inks. You see pigeons almost everywhere else, so why not on your wall!

New for the Month of MAY is U Can't Handle The Truth
The Truth - we all are in search of it! People have been trying to uncover the truth to many of life's questions:
If drinking and driving is illegal, why do bars have parking lots?
How can there be a limited lifetime warranty?
Is there another word for synonym?
At a movie theater which arm rest is yours?
The list of questions goes on and on, but the truth is...
"You Can't Handle The Truth"

Don't even get me started on this whole "Swine Flu" thing that has people walking around wearing surgical masks!
Although there may be truth to some of these stories, who wants to hear this every single day? Why not report on people or organizations from our area, nation or even worldwide that are doing something positive. Don't tell me that Oprah has completely cornered the market on positive and motivational stories! News stations need to get back to reporting NEWS-WORTHY stories again. I challenge you to watch the news today, and keep track of the amount of negative stories to positive stories. You will be surprised at the enormous disparity between the two. [end of rant]

We want some pictures of you guys in our tees for our blog. Put on one of our tees and do something totally random and take a pic. I'll send the person with the best pic a free tee... that's right a FREE TEE! So strike a pose and say "Cheeessse."

"Pigeons Love NY" is one of our newest designs, but I wanted to shed some light on the inspiration for this design.
Recently NY councilman Simcha Felder has proposed that the city impose a $1,000 fine for anyone caught feeding pigeons.... come on? He figures that this will control the population of pigeons in New York? If I were to list the top 5 things that people identify with New York-- our dirty feathery friends would have to be on that list!
Here's my list:
1. Times Square
2. horrendous traffic
3. street meat and pretzels
4. skyscrapers and...
5. PIGEONS !!!
Did you know that our state bird is the Eastern Bluebird... WHAT? I have never seen an eastern bluebird walking around on the sidewalks of New York, but I've seen plenty of pigeons! These foul birds have been a fixture here in NY for over a century. Our new state bird should be the Manhattan Pigeon! Send a letter to City Hall demanding to make the pigeon our new state bird.

Congratulations on winning our first contest! You have won the ALPHABET tee and a rather interesting "random object" that I hope you have room for it on a shelf... hmmm, what can it be? You have to send us some pics for the blog after it arrives!
Be on the lookout for the next contest.... I already dropped a hint about it last week! Peace

The premise of the contest is simple: try to correctly identify all nine fonts in the "Alphabet" design. Here is a detailed pic of the design...
Whoever gets the closest to the correct answers by March 4 will win a free "Alphabet" tee and "a random object"... win to find out what it is! A winner will be selected and announced here on the blog on March 5, 2009. send entries to: email@example.com
Good Luck, and be on the lookout for clues to other upcoming quickstrike contests. Peace

If you are going to be the president of the United States of America, you might as well roll in style. Obama's vehicle is like a limo on steroids. It has it's own oxygen supply and get ready... bottles of the presidents blood in case he needs an emergency transfusion! WHAT? I bet your tricked out Honda doesn't have that.

These are their newest creation, the City Knife II. These shoes are simply an awe inspiring piece of wearable architectural design. These sneakers fold completely flat! A removable molded insole is placed into the shoes to cushion the foot. These will be great when traveling abroad!

I want to start off the New Year with an amazing piece of art. The way the artist took an iconic NY image and added a totally different spin to the typography.... Brilliant! How could I not like this, I live in NY! I only wish I could own this amazing piece.
