lest we forget

I think I'm probably as guilty as most (if not a little more so) of romanticizing a past that doesn't always reflect historical reality. Urban farming, straight razors, penny farthings, dressing up to fly...

farewell, old friend!

As you may have already read, Google Reader dies tonight.First, a note on RSS: If you consider yourself creative, inspiration should in some way be important to you. Thanks to the magic of the web, inspiration is published virtually non-stop throughout the world. One of the ways this inspiration can be captured is through RSS. RSS is the way that blogs, news sites, social media profiles and many other websites are syndicated. You can collect these...

on the importance of data

My friends (my friends who live just one street over) left their house one morning this week to run some errands. After just two and a half hours, they (and their two sweet little ones) returned home to find that someone had (quite literally) broken and entered into their home, rifled through their stuff, and taken the tools they use to make a living. They lost cameras, computers, hard drives and more. Frankly, I can't imagine what...

MUSIC MONDAYS: The Bad Plus

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack.It's hard for someone like me to answer the asinine inquiry: who's your favorite band? It's not something I can easily narrow down. It's not like asking which cut of the pig I like most (pork belly, my friend) or which variant of metal leaf gets me all warm and fuzzy (silver or bust).But if you pressed me pretty hard, I'd likely tell you it's The Bad Plus.When...

oh, come on!

I am so sick of these doomsday headlines about the end of paper. I came across this from Inc. yesterday.The Era of Business Cards Is DeadFor crying out loud. Really?Has "the paper business card" really "lost its significance - and utility?"It certainly hasn't lost significance and I'd posit that the business card's utility has changed. Its utility is its significance.Business cards are no longer about sharing contact information.They're about sharing ideals. Your business card tells the recipient...

the colorful gentleman

  When it comes to men's fashion, I'm a big fan of using a small pop of color to contrast a relatively muted palette. We've seen grooms do it with socks and men have long used pocket squares. Here's a few more colorful accessories worth considering.photos courtesy of each product's manufacturerA new take on a classic, this is the Swatch Yellow Lacquered. With its exposed workings (a nod to the design of most automatic watches) and vibrant...

classics?

Earlier today, Xochitl tweeted this: Return to the classics? A trend with Paper that I'm noticing with our clients. Stationers, what do you think? http://t.co/5ci3tEKs44— Xochitl Gonzalez (@theblogsmaid) June 18, 2013 Since the Royal Wedding, pundits and professionals alike have posited that the wedding industry would trend towards sophisticated and elegant. I think florals, stationery, and food probably are all heading this direction.Here's the thing: I'm not too concerned about the trends and I hope you aren't, either. Sure,...

MUSIC MONDAYS: Beck’s + Edison

Music Mondays: because life's better with a soundtrack.You may have noticed that I have a thing for collaborative projects. This particular project adds the dynamic of juxtaposing the old and new: bringing together the folks at Beck's beer and some fine audio engineers to revive a century-old technology. The wax cylinder was a precursor to the phonographic disc and the subject of one of my favorite viral videos.I'm always fascinated by the process of iteration...
