One ding…

We outliers of the world who get you–who love you–will miss you more than Geoff misses his penis.

See you on the other side!

Who are you wearing?

I’ve watched pretty much every season of Project Runway — including the current season of Project Runway All Stars — and there is one area of fashion that the show rarely addresses:

The designers’ personal clothing.

The designers famously arrive at their digs in New York (or Los Angeles) pulling a single wheelie bag.  Then they proceed to drape themselves in all manner of crazy outfit week after week.

Me thinks they are getting some help from the costume department…and the highly advertised QVC accessory wall.

That’s a conversation I’d like to see addressed during the post-season round-up, between play-by-play of all the infighting, of course.

Your decision

This is so true, it’s kinda scary.

If you dropped someone from the pre-Internet era onto this train — let’s say Don Draper from Mad Men just for the fun of it….

…would he jump up, expecting the upholstery to burn his butt?

Think about it.

The new phone book’s here!

During a class meeting today, I had reason to utter the words –

“I’m somebody!”

…which brought to mind the iconic scene from The Jerk starring Steve Martin.

When I mentioned the movie to my class, they stared at me unknowingly.  One student, trying to be helpful, said, “I’ve heard of Steve Martin.

That’s awesome.

So, for their education — and everyone’s viewing pleasure — I include the aforementioned clip here.

I hope you are inspired to watch The Jerk…

And learn your special purpose.

One man’s trash

At first glance, this looks a bit like a stained glass window.

Mandy Barker

Perhaps that was photographer and graphic designer Mandy Barker’s inspiration.

But her creation uses material debris found in the sea, not glass.

It’s part of her art series ‘SOUP’ which seeks to raise awareness of the mass accumulation of plastic in the world’s oceans. Mandy has even been nominated twice for the Prix Pictet Award, which is the world’s leading photographic award in sustainability.

I’ve learned a couple of things I didn’t know, so I’d say her artwork is doing the trick.

 

Alert the media

There are alphabets in my oatmeal!

‘C’ is the first letter of my first name!  My last name,  too!

What can it mean?
