Have you ever looked at a book cover and thought that you could do better? Well, here's your chance! Penguin is looking for photographs to illustrate the covers of a few books by Hunter S. Thompson, Virginia Woolf and others. It's like Jones Soda, only with a more literary (and potentially more permanent) bent.

Synesthesia alert! If you've ever wondered what color a word is, the Color Code uses web images to give you an answer. The only problem with this idea is that all the colors tend to blend into a beige brown blah. Folderol looks sort of like a cool taupe.

When an artist starts working on Barbies, great things happen. Check out the version of Death!

We went out to dinner with some friends over the weekend, some of whom smoke, and they nearly walked out with the chef's lighter accidentally. With this in mind, the Six Degrees of Smoking project, in which lighters travel from person to person with photographic evidence, seems like a good plan - if the people remember to take the photos, at any rate!

Remember actress Daryl Hannah? She's gone off and invented a board game called Liebrary. It's true!
