I don't know how old this is or if everyone has... →
Also, no I don’t want to talk about the shooting at my university today and the hours I spent in lockdown at the art building.
Five new sustainable materials. →
If only the infrastructure to house them would develop more quickly (yeah, and if only the political system were streamlined, fair and balanced and if only no one ever got hurt and if only I could teleport)!
3D printers and prosthetic limbs. →
I may have linked this before elsewhere, but still, too awesome.
So I’ve been wanting to start chronicling everything I’ve been doing creatively, daily if I can, so that I can a. keep myself sharp and b. have a better documentation of what I’ve been doing for future resumes (and for myself). In that initiative, I’m going to start posting all the photos I took on my sweet new smartphone (hooray) on Facebook (as well as upload a massive...
Fantastic identities from COOEE →
I’m especially loving their two newest. This is exactly the kind of weird, different, beautiful work we need more of.
Remind me to tell you about my night.
It was a good one. Also, sweet new phone I can post with but never will because it’s annoying and unwieldy!
On the creative class and Richard Florida
(This is the first of what will be at least ten response papers for my Politics of Creativity class. Feel free to ignore this if you dislike tumblers posting homework; feel free to ask me what I mean if I am writing from a basis of understanding you’re unfamiliar with, not being in the class. Also, it’s all totally opinion and conjecture, this is a fucking blog. Also, this is my 69th...

Of course I want it all.
How is romance today different from earlier...
Societal rules have become more and more arbitrary and obsolescent, particularly regarding the idea and even the necessity of “Romance.” For example, in the past, “chaperones” were necessary in order to maintain the propriety of a close-knit societal order. With the advent of greater sexual (and societal) openness, standards of propriety (and in turn,...
Pitchfork Reviews Reviews Reviews: About about... →
To tell the truth, this isn’t so much a review of the review of the review, so much as it is a reaction and I’d like to write it with the long sentences that he uses. I admit it’s just really fun to do this meta repetitive title thing. I was listening to Gold Soundz on repeat, and all I’ve really been struck with is how stupid the line “and we’re coming to the...
Bitches ain't shit: a grammatical analysis
People have seen this image around: Unfortunately, though pretty an amusing, it’s innacurate; to be accurate, the “but” implies hoes and tricks are a part of “shit,” but “bitches” isn’t any part of “shit” EXCEPT (but) hoes and tricks. So the diagram would more properly look like this: I know it’s not as good looking, but if...
These are the most obnoxious, stupid people I've...
Guy: "'Como' means 'how.'"
Girl: "But it also means what, like "como te llamas."
—(Note: "como te llamas" translates literally to "how do you call yourself?" not to "what's your name?")—
Same girl: "Did you see that levels movie?"
Same guy: "You just asked a filmmaker if they'd seen Inception but calling it 'that levels movie.' You're one of those girls who say 'a red one' if asked what kind of car they drive."
Wednesday Afternoon Limericks: Studying in...
This guy thinks he’s really hot stuff and his girl has cute bangs with nice fluff— but as I would know, since his pants are so low the view from behind has got rough. Sometimes baristas are the beacon of cool: whatever they wear becomes fashion rule. But your hat’s to the side, your hand gestures wide, and my God man, you look a damned fool. In movies, bit parts are ignored few...
What is it to be true to yourself?
Are our identities platonic ideals to which we must strive and the closest proximity to which we can only hope to achieve? Or is it an amalgam of all our influenes and experiences, the constantly fluctuating epicenter of what we seek out to place in our lives and what we can’t help meeting? If it’s the latter, should we strive to influence who we become, or will that stilt us? Ought...
