Food Porn: The World’s Newest Obsession »

Food Porn:  The World’s Newest Obsession

I live  in Foodie-Ville. Sonoma County, California is known for its access to the world's most beautiful, biodynamic, Demeter-approved, organic, humanely-produced, preciously prepared and ingested culinary perfection.  So I'm accustomed to seeing lots of social media food porn. But really, how many pictures can we take of pizza, pasta, [...]

July 4th Afterthoughts: Andy Warhol on American »

  “Everybody has their own America, and then they have pieces of a fantasy America that they think is out there but they can’t see. So the fantasy corners of America, you’ve pieced them together from scenes in movies and music and lines from books. And you live in your dream America that you’ve custom-made from art and schmaltz and [...]

Hidetaka Onoyama’s Eclipse Photo of the Day

During yesterday's annular eclipse, in which the moon passed in front of the sun leaving only a golden ring around its edges, Hidetaka Onoyama's photo emerged as our favorite image.  Taken from Tokyo, it's a beautiful reminder of the wonder of nature, and the power of science to understand.

Do Not Covet Your Ideas: Give Away Everything You Know

  It is an interesting thought, and perhaps counter-intuitive for most of us to give our ideas away.  In fact, in the creative world, ideas make the world go round.  And get us paid.  But it is something I have noticed:  The more you give, the more you get in this ever changing world of trends, images and ideas. Here is to a New [...]

Pink Floyd’s PR Stunt Recycles Animals

If you are into music, and perhaps no matter your age, you recognize the iconic Pink Floyd album cover for Animals.  The pig flying over Battersea Power Station in London elicits "that's from the Pink Floyd album", when we pass it on our way to/from Heathrow the first time we visit London. To announce the release of the band's new [...]

Old Book Smell

Did you know? "Lignin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin.  When made into paper and stored for years it breaks down and smells good.  Which is how divine providence has arranged for secondhand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla [...]

Top 10 post on mixingreality.com : July 2011 – August 2011

Ranging from the musical and visual wonder of oscillating guitar strings to cameos carved from the creamy center of Oreo cookies, last month's top posts are eclectic, though with one consistent thread, almost all of them are art oriented. Thank you for continuing to surprise us with your enthusiasm and support.  This month, we will be [...]

Evan Drolet Cook : Places I Haven’t Been (North America)

This piece by Evan Drolet Cook got me thinking about perception, and hubris, and how for the most part, our reputation around the world has the taint of arrogance and naïveté when it comes to world view.  Obviously, for some of us, this is not the case, but in general, Cook's rendition of the North American map is a good reminder of all we [...]
