Angelique over at MU was kind enough to e-mail some pictures of Bend the Void, Geoff McFetridge’s most recent show.
Man oh man it looks so rad! I want that giant pencil in my apartment, although it would probably fill the whole thing, easy. I need to fly to the Netherlands ASAP!
I went to the Parking Lot Art Show on Saturday and had a blast. Spent the day helping set up everything with Jeff. He put up all of the lights in all of the trucks, and I helped him hide the cords in between running a million errands. It was a really hot day as well, and even hotter when you’re inside a moving truck.
After we were done setting up we headed home and freshened up, taking showers and naps. Got back over to Sunset Junction around 7 or 7:30 and started mingling. There was free white wine, which was really excellent. Everybody was there and we had a great time.
I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
Jim Richardson, writer of The Serif, a blog about design and art, is traveling through London and thought it would be fun to have readers redesign the underground tube tickets. I actually had a lot of fun doing this!
I went with a whole different look and shape for my card. I know it isn’t as feasible as the others, but I think it looks pretty damn classy!
I am a big time Apple supporter, but more importantly, a big supporter of well designed objects. That goes hand in hand with Apple’s purpose when making new products, make things that work well with people. Normal people, not just certain people. This is the reason why the iPod is so phenomenal, it’s easy for anyone, anywhere, to use.
But Daring Fireball loves Apple even more than I do, and in turn, I love Daring Fireball. Written by John Gruber, Daring Fireball is the place to go to if you don’t want to visit some horribly designed, ad-riddled computer site. John lays out the information clean and simply, and without the bullshit.
In fact, John hates bullshit, especially people in the media who try to say, “Apple is this…” or “Apple products do that…”, when it’s just not true. Basically, he calls people on their bullshit, and you know what? Man oh man is he right. He brands many an Apple doubter with the ‘jackass stamp’, and with all the (well deserved) buzz about the iPhone, his stamp is whittling down quite quickly.
So if you like Apple products, computer stuff, or just a good laugh, definitely check out Daring Fireball.
