You Light Up My Life.

In Design on October 20, 2012 at 12:25 PM

When I was in 2nd grade I had an experience that scarred me to this day. Sitting in a horseshoe shape in the music room of a new school, a thirty something teacher with long straight blonde hair and no sense of children or childhood made me stand up and sing “You Light Up My Life” to the entire class unaccompanied so she could “see what kind of voice” I had. After I failed miserably (I didn’t even know all of the words, and started crying about half way through), she made another girl stand and show me how I was supposed to have done it. This other girl won the talent show later that month singing that song, and then went on to sing in commercials.

Isn’t that kind of mean.

But this is nice!

Such a nice change from the overused – especially here in Seattle – Edison Bulb!

Buy it here.

I used to love going through these magazines as a kid and would get them for my kid now if we didn’t already have so much crap – but look what I just found – and ordered for Christmas!  The database is searchable with over 200,000 photos – plus there is an interactive mapping feature that pulls up the whole history of articles for that place etc. So Cool! I didn’t think I was such a geek – but I think that this might be very educational for the wee 6 year old and way better than!

Crazy Shit.

I love a good hunt. Give me a flea market, a random warehouse district, an hour on craigslist, or just send me to Cline’s Antiques. Just outside of Charlotte is this crazy man’s land. Acres of buildings, semi-truck trailers, and random piles of stuff. Signs, metal, salvaged doors, more chairs than you can imagine and in one corner a rocket launcher and a trailer full of amo. Seriously that was weird.

A little overwhelming to say the least. And if you plan on going, I recommend knee high rubber boots (snakes), work gloves and a headlamp.

A backlog of finished projects to document has me thinking of sunny days and upcoming photoshoots. I am sure this is going to work it’s way into one of them!

A good friend of mine had a baby and wants a rocking chair. Here are my picks for their cool South Beach Loft.
