Still Talkin’ Shit (11)

(Originally a post in response to comments below) Hypothetical- over beers, the table starts trashing administrator flavor of the minute. Reality–this is work culture. Even if I am indifferent to administrator flava, the conversation usually starts to put me into a mindset that the place I work must be bad…which I have to actively counter in my head. Can you imagine in the middle of this trash talk – which …

Talkin’ Shit (10)

‘Hypothetically- (hell, hypothetically, it happens all the time) people talk shit. Bitch about x or y, drop innuendo about who is doing whom, gossip because talking trash is a thrill. And I don’t. Generally, don’t trash other folk, don’t want to discuss other people’s relationships. For lack of a better description- makes me feel icky. So this happens around me, and I don’t interject. Generally, don’t participate. I don’t complain …

Got to love it when the mind works while asleep.When last left, the Metropolis sketches had yielded highly unsatisfactory results. Tried variations on the theme. Still, had a strong notion that this was the wrong direction.This last one cooked overnight, dreaming of bauhaus, and kandinsky and klee. Not exactly of the style, but definitely informed by it. More cooking to go, but the base is solid. Feels like I’m on …

Summer Projects: 4\n\nThis is one…the redesign (or perhaps just the design) of the What the Tech?! website.\n\nSteve is working on site architecture, me, interface/graphic design. The starting point, conceptually, is Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis”, last of the German Expressionist Cinema offerings (the first being “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”).┬áThe film has some interesting themes: the mechanization of man as worker, and the literal mechanization of man in terms of the man-machine, …

The kids are alright (5)

No musical soundtrack at the moment- just the sounds of my boys running like maniacs, spending the last of the day’s energy before being ordered to bed. I can hear them upstairs. Aidan, “Bwaaaah!” THUD. Giggles. Connor, “Bwaaaah haaa!” THUD. More giggles. They alternate bwaa-ing and thudding. I have noooo idea what they’re doing–but it sounds fun, and since there is no sound of breaking (yet), I sit here instead. …
