Fuke, Uber…and more four-letter words

Oh boy, it’s one of those days! No matter how hard I work, my to-do list seems to be getting longer and longer. Time to take a break and share some of the stuff I’ve been seeing and doing this weekend. Crazy coinkydink: all the items are four-letter words, starting with a photographer named Fuke.

Fuke

I wonder how Fuke P-San does it! The colors in his photo’s look pretty darn spectular as you can see. They also remind me of a blogpost I once wrote about Australian artists Pip & Pop – still a favorite on Interiorator. Oh by the way, is Fuke short for Fukushima?

Uber

So, I finally used Uber for the first time last Friday night! I was amazed at how smoothly everthing went. You just open the app, enter your destination and bing, bang, boom a driver comes and picks you up. My driver, a very nice man named Gert, arrived not ten minutes after I’d ordered a car – he even called me one minute before he got at the restaurant I was to make sure I’d be waiting outside. Very nice! The car was huge and had complimentary bottles of mineral water and some magazines to read. After I got home, I got an e-mail from Uber asking me for a review. Sure, I thought, no problem! Imagine my surprise when I got a personal reply from someone named Eva, thanking me for my positive feedback. Talk about a WOW factor. And what a difference with those old school TCA taxi thugs!

Taxi

Talking about Taxi, I had to think of my favorite show from the Seventies yesterday. I watched my favorite episode, called The Unkindest Cut, on YouTube. It features a very young Ted Danson as a flamboyant hair dresser named Vincenzo and a funny side story about Pac Man.

 

Mead

Syd Mead, that is – the famous illustrator and futurist. Fast Company has something called Wearables Week on their website, including an article about where Daft Punk apparently got their helmets from.
