Bravery and Patriotism

John Brady Kiesling's resignation letter from the U.S. Embassy in Greece says with honor, skill, and eloquence what I've felt about this whole Iraq debacle all along.

WTC Design Choice

I won't say I'm not dissapointed that the Libeskind design was chosen for the World Trade Center site. Despite the 1776 (how twee) foot tower, it was definately the safer of the two choices. I don't hate this design, it's just I think it is less bold than the city where it will reside--and less bold than the act that destroyed the original towers. It should be more, which was why I favored the THINK design. Oh well...

June 30

My letter from Carnegie Mellon arrived yesterday. June 30th is the day I start grad school in Interaction Design. I am freaking out about it. So much to do to prepare to have my life totally changed...

Let the Revolution Begin!

Finally the masses are rising up! Lowe's is being sued to stop those commercials before a movie.

You say it's your birthday...

It's my birthday too yah...(actually it was yesterday). 33 years old. As is always the case: snow on my birthday, in this case, the Blizzard of '03.

WTC Design Debate

Finally getting around to reading Herbert Muschamp's New York Times article in praise of the THINK team's design (which I also favor). Although I hardly think the Daniel Libeskind design is "kitsch." Lots of stuff on this topic on Archlog.

Take It Off

I think I'm developing a crush on The Donnas.

WTC Designs

They've picked the two finalists for the World Trade Center site. I'm a big fan of the THINK entry. I can't imagine anything more thrilling than seeing those double helix strands rising up from downtown Manhattan--especially after seeing the interactive display they had in the Winter Garden a few weeks ago. It would be a bold, and appropriate choice. Plus, no one would have to work 100 stories in the air.

Where's the Love?

Courtney Love was arrested en route to London. I have a strange fondness and sympathy for her. Plus, I thought her last Hole album, Celebrity Skin, was one of the best (and most-underrated) albums of the 90s. Free Courtney!

The Smoking Gun

Mr. Powell, we want it. Nothing else is going to satisfy.
