Mickey Burton

Mickey Burton makes gig posters and book covers and overall, amazing work... check it.
note: Joanna Newsom where? the Andy Warhol Museum. score one for PGH.

This almost makes me like Ohio...


I get Nonsense's emails about events in NYC. This time round, they plugged their hilarious and wonderful gallery showing of posters for hypothetical events in the next ten years. My three favs:

I <3 Astrology

Friday, I spent absolutely no time working on my paper. Instead, I read about reading astrological birth charts. Supposedly, Aquarians are known for their connections/interests with astrology. I think my interests lie in the fact that I barely understand myself, so I'm always eager to try and find something out. Here are some interesting facts...

So that explains my "afflictions", my poor circulation, my allergy to changes in weather and my favorite colors. I guess, I need to get myself an amethyst, STAT.

case in point: last night. Harrison was super late in picking me up to see DMST (btw, AMAZING). I was freaking out. As soon as I got in the car, I was fine. When we got to the show an hour after it was supposed to start, I found that the first band hadn't even gone on yet and I was in time to see it all! the Divine order indeed!

my axis are all fixed. shit. my fifth house is full. shit. I'm so fixed, I have every element represented. Yet, I'm not working on this paper... I'm not finishing it am I? I dropped my thesis! Looks like I'm rebelling against all that fixed energy...

So... I think I'm gonna learn more about reading birth charts and start doing readings. that would be sick. I need to develop my intuitive side. Even my cousin Lisa has told me that. Now that I'm learning about the planets more, it should help in learning palm reading too.


this is a still from a branding video for AOL... or should I know say Aol. ? Their new identity moves in the direction that MTV and Nickelodeon are moving away from after years of having mutable logos/identities. The still is funny, the new identity is pretty lame.


come on Carnegie Mellon, there shouldn't be typos in a graduate program manual.

Silly hipsters, DINOSAUR JR. is the shit.

Potpurri/Little Maggie

what does it mean when your artists are all in black and white?

these fb questions crack me up:

Harrison and I have been making mixes for ourselves. Last night he brought over his... What's wrong with this picture?

One of the songs on his mix is "Little Maggie", an old folk song:

Oh, yonder stands little Maggie
With a dram glass in her hand
She's drinkin' away her troubles
She's a-courtin' another man

Last time I saw little Maggie
She was sittin' on the banks of the sea
With a forty-four all around her
And a banjo on her knee

Pretty flowers were made for bloomin'
Pretty stars were made to shine
Pretty women were made for lovin'
Little Maggie was made for mine

Lay down your last gold dollar
Lay down your gold watch and chain
Little Maggie's gonna dance for daddy
Listen to that ol' banjo ring

Go away, go away, little Maggie
Go and do the best you can
I'll get me another woman
You can get you another man

Goddamn. Why is it that Maggie is always a whore that gets left behind? She always seems so vivacious and the one that's leaving always loves her. Eternal damnation in a folk song.

Jon Burgerman has made a typeface! He makes amazing creatures in every medium possible!

The Moon and Our Memory

Did you know that when you make a new memory, the new neuron destabilizes old ones? Shit!

Get this- the Europeans sent a small unmanned spacecraft, Rosetta, into space to intercept a comet. It's going to attempt landing on the comet- a first except if you count Bruce Willis in Armageddon. Regardless, it had to gather up speed by slingshotting around the earth three times... this is the last image of the earth that it captured.

Jeremy Fish

Fecal Face - Jeremy Fish Studio Visit

Wow. the symmetry. forms blending to become new forms. there's a morbidity to it... yet it is elegant. he definitely has a canon of images- mostly animals with feathers and skulls, hands, and a dash of pop culture. hooray for Jeremy Fish!

CINCO Update

Damn, I love CINCO. Check out their blog. Check out their new work:

Potpurri/Andrew Bird

the internet yields hilariously dumb shit.
note the length of Obama's weekly address...Why didn't anyone ever tell me about Lamebook? I guess I should really start making things anonymous...

to save us from stupidity, Andrew Bird...
