Here's a random sampling of some articles I wrote for my blog. Call it designing with words.
Seriously, the majority of posts I see these days pale in comparison to the comments section, which is way more entertaining than the article itself! Right?
If a bomb explodes, kills people, and no one is around to report it—would we all still feel “terrorized”?
Think about it for a second. If we weren’t constantly bombarded by over the top, sensationalized news reports, or heat of the moment posts on social media, would the world be such a terror-able place?
It looks like Mother nature chose to trick instead of treat this Halloween. Hurricane Sandy’s wrath saw New York, surrounding areas, and as far north as Canada become an apocalyptic disaster zone. It’s a good thing many people have the internet, social media and smartphones to come to the rescue, right? Wrong. When power went out, cell service down and battery life draining, many people were left with one question. Now what?
We knew there’d be a 5C, in many colors. We knew there’d be a 5S. It’d come in white, black (sorry, granite), and a new gold option—aka champagne. The numbers are in, and it looks like the gold takes the win, selling out almost instantly. Who knew? Not Apple.
Today we learned the fate of Timothy Lau, a 21 year old who was part of the Stanley Cup riot in 2011. He faced four charges, more than anyone else who took part that day. You do the crime, you face the time, right? Well, not unless the media made your crime too public, then you’re off the hook. Lau got a 4 month sentence. Since when does the media exact justice?
Seriously. I thought it was a joke. I really did! It was funny—at first. Oh the silly stylist who approved the run-down beltless look for their disheveled spokesman. What were they thinking? But the joke didn’t end there. Oh no, it kept going, and going, and going. I don’t think I’ve seen a TV screen in the last 2 months without Joe McDumpsterdiver on it! Trivago’s crossed the line. It needs to go. Now.
