Thank you for the greatest gift EVER!
I have lived in New York City going on nine years now, but today was my first trip to the Museum of the City of New York.
Two for one admission — need I say more?
The space is compact, clean and modern, with exhibits of a number and size that make it easy to see and do everything in a morning or afternoon. There’s also a nice variety — photography, film, costumes, paintings, advertising, multi-media, miniatures — so everyone in your group will find something to hold their interest.
My favorite on this cold damp day?
Everything is Design: The Work of Paul Rand, an exhibit showcasing the six-decade career of the iconic graphic designer (and Brooklyn native).
While Rand is a legend in the design community, you may find yourself wondering who he is. A quick look at a few of the logos he designed will make you realize you gaze upon his handiwork nearly everyday.
He also taught at the Pratt Institute and Yale before his death in 1996.
A quick Google image search will not only give you an idea of the breadth of Rand’s art and impact on current design, but is a really fun way to entertain yourself on a rainy day.
GO BIG BLUE! #BBN #TIMEFORNINE
As I sit firmly planted on the couch, enjoying another full day of March Madness, I noticed a trend amongst the basketball players.
(And I’m not talking about falling seeds.)
More and more are wearing tights under their shorts. A quick survey of Google images reveals many NBA players are making this choice as well.
I for one consider it a slam dunk.
Being a fairly pasty person, I find displaying my glowing gams to be a fashion don’t . The older I get, the smarter this decision becomes.
If these basketball leggings inspire fashion designers of everyday wear…
The NCAA tourney will have more than one winner this year!
I started following @SteveJobQuotes on Twitter when the account appeared following his untimely death.
The account was exactly that — inspirational quotes from Jobs taken from his live talks or book.
It was food for thought.
But lately the tweets have taken a turn. Only today, “The best ways to flirt” and “Deadly fashion sins” were on their newsfeed.
I can’t picture Jobs having much to say on either topic, except perhaps —
“A black turtleneck is always right.”
