I don’t have as many reflections on accuracy and understanding as the last time. I just found this version kind if silly and funny. I didn’t notice it until hours later, but it seems that whoever wrote my name down tried to dot the “h.” Hysterical.
One of the first booths we encountered was Somewhere in Time. There were a large number of necklaces on display, and the vendor went into a great story about how these were discovered in a warehouse in the Czech Republic.
We brought a box over to the house, and found that Bob decided to add a little bit of… commentary? A warning? Perhaps both. Completing the sentence, really.
Though he’s too small, I imagined him clinging to the tip of a tree branch – having made it through the worst of our winter, only to finally succumb today, after having persevered through this year’s blizzard.
As Roth told Creem at the time, “we put the poster in because it upsets people. It’s disturbing. It’s one of those beautiful things where there’s actually nothing going on in the picture, and you’re forced to use your filthy little imagination.”
A Really Great Idea To Punish Bad Drivers That Has Numerous, Horrific, Unintended Consequences, But That I Would Like to See Implemented Anyways
The bullet isn’t a real bullet, in the cops and robbers definition. This bullet contains a special kind of paint, meant to adhere to a car’s metal exterior. This would enable drivers to “mark” another car by simply firing their gun at the offending vehicle. This paint would be designed to permanently stain the car exterior for 30 days, at which time it would slowly fade.
Design agency Sid Lee made a fantastic dashboard tracking a lot of useless info in and around their Paris office. Curious how much water they’ve had so far today? Or perhaps how many times they’ve flushed the toilet? All this and more is available online, and updated in real-time.
The “In Memoriam” segment came on – a portion of the awards where they remember those who worked in the movie industry who passed away, the year prior. I happened to have Twitter open during this time, and several people posted their surprise when the segment ended and there was no mention of Joan Rivers.
“Repetition can actually shift your perceptual circuitry such that the segment of sound is heard as music: not thought about as similar to music, or contemplated in reference to music, but actually experienced as if the words were being sung.”
Even now, writing this, I struggle with defining myself as a developer. I work with code, but I still don’t feel like I’ve earned the title developer yet. I still feel far away from that designation.
“This is a small experiment in creating something that feels immersive and real-time, but doesn’t require nor allow any true interaction. I have a theory that people want to feel the emotional texture of having performed influential tasks in a story or game, but mostly don’t want to do the actual work. So: completely passive but it feels like something interactive.”
It’s been a long while since I’ve encountered a song that uses the word “fire” as its main rhyme. Veirs pulls it off well, where you don’t really fixate a lot on the word – and it comes up both naturally and quickly in the song.
Will that be a good thing for cabbies? Or will it backfire, as I don’t get the sense that the general public reserves much good will for the industry. I don’t take cabs nearly as much as I used to, but I’ve had a mixture of experiences – some good, a few bad. And the bad tend to stick out. To this day, I’m still wary of cabbies telling me that their credit card reader is “broken,” and they can’t accept cards.
The curtain comes courtesy of Meg, and Liz put it up in an effort to help retain some of the heat on our first floor. A lot of the heat coming up just rushes up the stairs into the second floor, and this curtain actually helps keep things a little warmer downstairs.
Why Because Bot is another Twitter bot I just launched last week. The bot finds tweets starting with “Why is…” and also finds tweets containing a sentence that starts with “It’s because…” and pairs them together.
