Okay...NO MORE TALKING ABOUT HOW HOT IT IS!!!
Instead, why not take a refreshing dip in the cool, cool Internet waters. I long to get back in and really splash around, but until then, I'll just revisit where I've been here & there over the past few weeks...
What's cooler than Flickr? Making art from words via Flickr! Here's communicatrix! Here's Miss Colleen! Here's underpants! (Oh, come on, like you're not totally going right there right now to spell "butt." [via CoolHunting, created by the mighty Kastner, all bow down now, please]
Someone finally got on it and started creating the dream photography site. Frankly, I think there should be sites like this for fine art, drama, music, etc., but I'm sure that gets the copyright freaks' undies in a collective bundle. You can access the site here, but it's really in tatters right now (note to self: upgrade your server before a major media publication runs big story on you). [via The New York Times online, where you will have to register to read the story]
You'll also have to register to read this fascinating story on the politics (and profits) of Costco vs. Walmart. But believe me, it's worth it. [via The New York Times online]
Please hurry up and make the coolest keyboard in all the land so I can buy it. Please. [once again, via CoolHunting]
Some really great advice on those who would be published authors. [via Seth Godin's blog, which I really should read more often]
The sooner kids learn the facts of life, the better. [CoolHunting, I am your bitch]
I think I'm going to have to post a separate homage to this chick, but until I do, go check out this site. Courtney Booker is one talented design monkey. She also did the design (and/or illustration) for Buddy/Buddette, one of my favorite postcards EVER. [via my frantic a.m. hunt for a headshot of Jacqueline Wright, who would be on my shit list right now if she wasn't one of the five best people I've ever seen on stage in my life and too nice to yell at]
Another well-written, accessible, thought-provoking post from Half Mad (Ex-) Spinster about preconceived notions and the conditions under which they are conceived. Nice to know that if I ever move to Ohio, there will be a kindred spirit there for me to bond with.
