Invitation - Finishing

Invite - Finishing.jpg

Blogger Paige thought:

I can't even begin to understand all the steps involved in these invitations, but they have now made me feel like I can never ever settle for generic invatiations when I plan my own wedding....

*the bar has been set!*

Oh, and they look beautiful!!

just a warning, paige. as soon as you begin saying to yourself that you will not "ever settle for generic [insert generic item here]" when planning a wedding, you embark on a journey 193487502976546845 times more treacherous and exhausting. at every turn, andy and i have insisted on not settling for that which can be had on theknot.com. while it has already begun to make a difference (and we've still got six and a half weeks to go), it has also enslaved us.

i am beginning to see why people write how-to wedding guides after getting married--they cant stand the thought of all those lessons learned going to waste. it feels tragic.

Thanks Paige.

Only problem with making them so beautiful? None of our guests will return the RSVP cards--they just won't give them up.

But happy to set any bar,

A.

Heather,

The kid who shot the image above went to Hopkins from '96 to 2000, so Pia and Jon's year. Then ended up at MICA from '04 to '05.

Know him?
I don't.

Cap

I feels good to catch my low bill above me--heavy in my peripheral vision--reminding me that the sky isn't ever blue, it's black and full of stars.

This Morning's Light

Rainbow Self Portrait 4 - Small
Please view the full-scale image as well.

If I cared about hits I'd find excuses all the time. I could give this work a romantic face and anthropomorphize it into something more marketable--the mythologized "creator" the art-world, and the world-in-general wants. I'd take above-the-head shots in dim lighting, flash my tits, and offer sly smiles. Because in-all-honesty those are good strategies for quick-connection with an audience. I just don't think you should judge this book by it's cover. So I don't enable--often.

As before, a few rare minutes of sunlight worth catching.

Paces Per Minute

Paces Per Minute

Off-and-on for awhile now, I've found myself waiting for a specific song to come up on my iPod. Well, one of an infinite many I guess. It's one that aligns perfectly with my pace at the time--each beat hitting with my heel. Whenever I find one, I give it a quick one-star rating so that a smart playlist can catch it. This system's yielded four or five so far, in which I set the BPM. I think I'm interested in averaging the speed, figuring out what my tear through the city is. For now it's 136.

Cool, Just Right, Indispensable, Edgy

adimage3

I haven't made it to the Biennial yet, but word is, it fails by many measures. I'll go--because I have to--recon. But based on the down-right meaningless ad above, presented to me half way down Gothamist tonight, I'm dreading it. It's an animated embarrasment to the true heart of the art world--a tenuous community to which I tenuously remain a part.

Invitation

Lining Envelopes

Paige, a much-delayed push on the invites has finally begun.

Quick specs: 4-panel accordion, each panel 4"W x 6"H, on Rives BFK, cream. Some panels 2-color, some 3, some 4--all printed by hand on a Riso Print Gocco. Colors: White, Dark Brown, Yellow, Gold. Envelopes: Stardream Bronze A-6s from JAM with hand-cut, scored and tipped-in liners of Bertini from New York Central.

I'll post a pic or two once they're close to out the door.

Blogger Paige thought:

oh! how elaborate! how many are you making?

Blogger Andy thought:

Well, we thought we were keeping it simple. But I guess this is just what happens when a printmaker weds a writer...

We are making about 75 or 80, but only need to actually mail about 55. We figure we'll want some overage for the figurative "scrapbook" and that given this many passes through the press, there will be significant shrinkage.

Element,

I thought so too, so I swiped it from Cavalier of Odds. The version Jana posted is much too low-res to scale up--but drop her a line, she might take you up on your offer to buy.

Atop some Clorox wipes.

Somtimes I'm startled to remember that it's 2006--well after "the year two-thousand"--the future. That it's weird--and grim.

Blogger hipp-o thought:

this product does nothing other than cause fear (and rip you off).

March 16, 2006 at 11:13 PM - Comment Permalink  
Blogger Andy thought:

Syl, you think that's bad?

I saw an ad on American Inventor last night for another new Clorox product--this one, truly terrifying. It's called Clorox Anywhere and the ad depicts a mom running around spraying this "sanitizing spray" on EVERYTHING in her home.

And I mean EVERYTHING--on fruit inside her fridge--on her kid's highchair while the kid is in it (overspray clearly hits his/her face)--on computer equipment--everywhere.

They claim that it's "as gentle as water, yet strong enough to kill 99.9% of bacteria".

Which sounds to me like, "consume our chemical water and the new mass-fear prevelant in our society (bankrolled by a corrupt government), will just melt away".

What a sad and dark age we're entering,

Competition

viewTunes

When I saw the write-up of viewTunes in the Macsimum News feed I thought we might have some competition. Then, when giving it a spin, I noticed that Apple-Q doesn't quit the app. This standard keyboard command is mapped to a fucking sort function. Amateur hour--feels like a Windows port.

A bottle of invisible ink came into my life recently--only blue when heated heavily. I have to give it back tomorrow.
