Good Morning Inspiration – 100 Black Balloons vs. 1 Blu-Ray Laser

What is better than coherent light obliterating 100 very carefully placed balloons down a hallway complete with different angles and audio that is not related to sex?

This is something that I submit to THAT list:

Wanna make one of these lil’ experiments on your own?
Go get yourself a Blu-Ray laser, some black balloons, and do it!


Buon Venerdì! 

Feliz Viernes! 

Gëzuar e premte! 

Fericit Vineri! 




Good Morning Inspiration! Jack Carroll’s “Britain’s Got Talent” Appearance


Good morning, world!  I hope you woke up healthy and happy this morning, with nothing to hinder your thoughts and the sun shining on your life.

When I got out of bed this morning, my amazing wife put a glass of iced coffee and breakfast in front of me right as I sat down on the couch, and she kissed my tiredness away.  Nine seconds later, we saw this video while reading the news.  I was so inspired by that I had to share.  The video below is of 14 year old comedian Jack Carroll, who made an amazing presence on Britain’s Got Talent – and walking away with four enthusiastic YES votes and a thumbs up from Simon Cowell.

Jack, thanks a lot for the inspiration this morning.

Get out there and Carpe Diem, mophos!  Have an amazing day!

Thanks, Joe Bonamassa, Now I Have to Clean My Face Off the Wall

Oh my. This guy is electricity.

I’m a big fan of the blues, I’ve always wanted to hop onboard with a blues or jam band and light the living bejesus out of their show.  My very close friend Kat Dicken turned me onto this guy Joe Bonamassa this weekend, and I have to say I have listened to nothing but since Saturday night.  Hey Joe, need a lighting designer?  You, my friend, blew my brain all over my apartment with this song last night, just FYI:

Stop!” at the Royal Albert Hall:

and then of course there’s this giant tune, “The Ballad of John Henry,” also at the Royal Albert Hall:

Oof.  Wow.  I needed this music so bad, what a passionate player!  Have an amazing day, everybody!  I hope this is as inspiring to you all as it is to me!

Light Paint Inspiration on a Wednesday Morning

I read this blog called Light Paint – it’s an outstanding collection of posted light art, and people submitting their excellent light paintings.  I needed some design inspiration this morning, so I was looking through the site and discovered four unbelievably beautiful pieces of light art.  Check these out, I had to share them with all of you.
