Pretending to Be…


The most Dangerous Place in the World…

… is your bed.

The Erie railroad kills 23 to 46; the other 845 railroads kill an average of one-third of a man each; and the rest of that million, amounting in the aggregate to that appalling figure of 987,631 corpses, die naturally in their beds! You will excuse me from taking any more chances on those beds. The railroads are good enough for me.

-Mark Twain excerpted from “The Danger of Lying in Bed”

…so continues my love/hate relationship with my refuge of rest otherwise known as my bed…

Sometimes in life, you feel like you are getting chased by a naked guy on a bike with a cardboard box over his head.
And you dont want to get caught.

So you
just keep on swimming pedaling…
just keep on swimming pedaling…
just keep on swimming pedaling…
just keep on swimming pedaling…

Mission Statement…

First project we’re working with plaster and blue foam. And its safe to say this has been the worst design experience of my life. Me and my group could never get the plaster mix right: its always either to clay-ey or too thick and the sanding the foam is a bitch to work with. And not to mention that the studio is a complete mess and utter DISASTER…
The fucking plaster gets everywhere all over your shoes, your, clothes, your face, your hair and into your boxers.
Its horrible.

On top of all that the models didnt even come out good.
Fuuccccckkkkkk….

I love qoutables.
I love typography.
Which means I love this piece by Andy Mangold.
I had to crop out the pictures ’cause my html coding restricts certain picture size, so definitely go to his site to view the full pics.

Ironically this project was to showcase a new font/typeface, Clarendon, but the writing in the journals overshadows any of that. I dont know for sure if that was the true intention, only the artist can truly know that, but sometimes the final product is not the embodiment of your original ambitions, but is still provocative and ingenious nonetheless. The final product is what the public is only seeing, but like the “tip of the iceberg” cliche, there was a long generated process that no one else knows but the artist and the fact that you can accomplish something that you never intended is sometimes the most gratifying experience. Now this may not be the case with this specific project, but its something that has been on my mind for a while and seeing this work today just reminded me even more of it.

Just because you didn’t do what you set out to do, that fact does not discount your effort. In fact it may be for the better.

But I digress,
Andy Mangold has some cool stuff.

So the project Im working on in school happens to be the Ed Bacon Rebuild and Revive competition
and its going well but I forgot to register for the competition. No big deal. That has no affect on my grade for class, but it would have been nice to enter my project to the competition. Not that I was going to win, probably not, but it would have been cool to say i did. Ehhhh… fuck me and my clumsiness…
We have about 2 more weeks to finish the project…
I like where im going with my idea…
The simple structure above is just scratching the surface of what i ave planned…
stay tuned…
Ill post the rest here after my review…
