Hey everybody. I don't even want to see how long it's been since I posted. One thing I was surprised by just now is that someone else has my handle on these interwebs- just separated into two words. I had to google myself to find my blog.

I think I want to change what I say in my header that I talk about. I like to think I can provide, for better or worse, a sort of farmer's market, daily, of what's on my mind. Some days the produce is bound to be scrawny and sort of rotten, but in keeping with my habit of claiming everything about myself, rotten and decaying can be beautiful. I'm not saying it will be. To you.

I had a great experience yesterday, walking and doing some simple task with my hands and having a total sense of how marvelous it is, the ability to do these things. Looking around my cluttered, happy livingroom and seeing objects that are so perfect, just in the way they sit there, the Winter sun, a different angle than the other seasons, highlighting this object or that bag of squirrel food or birdseed or that still-wrapped, not-gifted Christmas present. Each thing its own heroic icon. If there are two of the same thing they sit together in silent communion.

Most of my life I've been frustrated that I only get this one life to live. I read books to get a small sense of other's lives but it's not the same. That day to day familiarity with everything particular to that house on that piece of land with that grocer way down the way and those who people that life. The postman, the lady across the street who takes care of those kids, the elementary school across from the park. How luxurious it would be to spend a lifetime of ordinary days just being a living single organism, noticing as well as not noticing, things of that tiny part of the world and then eventually dying there. All that sweet, kind stuff in your living room disguised as clutter to those who are left behind.

fabulous flat boots show off Chanel

"On the models’ feet were flat booties in silver leather or white with black lines. The shapes were soft, mostly short and slightly rounded, with a sense of mobility."

Sid Vicious, Balmain, Balenciaga, oh my!

Anna Wintour Reportedly Changed Her Clothes Twice in an Airplane Bathroom Yesterday

they *stopped* the baggage carousel for her, er, her assistant?!

Anna Wintour Reportedly Changed Her Clothes Twice in an Airplane Bathroom Yesterday:

Rather than being caught in one of those embarrassing airport photos — you know, where the celebrity is fumbling with her carry-on bag and wearing stretchy pants, or just straight-up looking like a homeless person — Anna Wintour boarded a commercial flight to L.A. yesterday wearing a Louis Vuitton dress. However, once on the plane, E! reports that she disappeared into the bathroom to change into a pair of J Brand jeans and "a cute top," according to a fellow passenger. Shortly before landing, she supposedly changed back into her original outfit (see our earlier point about deplaning in stretchy pants). Then, once on the ground, bystanders said she had the baggage carousel stopped once her luggage appeared so that one of her helpers could heft it all off without having to chase the conveyor belt around in circles. Now, who ever said that Anna treats her assistants badly?

A Collection of Beautiful, Free Fonts

A Collection of Beautiful, Free Fonts:

It’s fairly common knowledge that the choice of font you use can have a huge impact on the tone of the site you’re designing. A clean & professional serif might be at home on a site that takes itself seriously, while a quirky sans serif might be a better fit for a site with a playful personality.

As Information Architect Oliver Richenstein famously wrote in 2006, web design is 95% typography – so getting the right typeface for your design is important. We’ve selected some beautiful free fonts that are just waiting to be added to your next design.

Throwable Panoramic Camera Ball

Throwable Panoramic Camera Ball:

Throwable Panoramic Camera Ball

As his graduate thesis Jonas Pfeil created a prototype throwable panoramic camera ball that snaps a single image when thrown in the air. Armed with 36 2-megapixel mobile phone camera modules, the camera contains an accelerometer that lets the exposure be trigged at the calculated climax of flight. The sphere of the camera itself is printed on a 3D printer and  is controlled using tiny AVR microcontrollers, with the governing program written in C, C++, QT, and openCV. All images taken are then easily downloaded using a USB device. Pfeil and co. are currently seeking partners in developing the throwable panoramic camera ball further.
