Good Design, Even When It’s Not For Me

  Getting my degree did about two important things for me. The second of these is that school instilled in me a respect for design that transcends my own taste. Sometimes I have to ask myself- do I like this because it’s good design, or because I like it personally, and want to own it…

The Anti-Anti List for February 19, 2014

The other day I listened to Beck’s new album. I was obsessed with Beck circa age 15. I lost touch a little in the Midnight Vultures era, but later realized that I get a little happier than usual every time a Beck song comes on, whether its Hell Yes or Devil’s Haircut or even Lost…

Cheap Geek Fashion Alert – Marvel Comics

Burlington Coat Factory currently has in a selection of Marvel tee shirts. I saw several “group” designs, a vintage style Amazing Spiderman, and a Thor body suit.

This is everything in my meant-to-be-minimalist makeup (and hair product, and etc.) bag. In the end I think I could have pared it down a little, but I didn’t ever seriously…

Pax Prime Travel- Airport Looks, Day and Night

I’m currently in Seattle for Pax Prime. I haven’t actually seen any Seattle yet, as I’m still in the airport. My flight came in last night, and I slept here. I feel remarkably better than expected today, due to a combination of finding a flat bench to sleep on and taking the time to clean…

Sports: They’re Probably OK for.. Some People.. I Guess.

Someone just made a remark to me that implied that I don’t like sports because I’m a girl. While not made with unfriendly intentions, every time I hear this it annoys me. It irks me because it fails to recognize the nuance of my dislike of sports. I don’t like sports, or perhaps more properly,…
