As a visual learner, I strongly like this trend.
It’s how my brain process things on it’s own.
So it’s nice when someone does it for me.
Then my brain gets to be lazy.
And my brain loves being lazy.

And then there’s the Motherload
of all infographics at Good Magazine.And the king of infographics himself...
Nicholas Felton of the Feltron Annual Report.

STRONGLY dislike.

The concept here seems pretty tame,
but for some reason I find these things completely revolting.
I'm not squeemish by nature and I don't have a weird thing about feet,
so there's no real reason for my adverse reaction to them.

I'm not sure if it's the use of leopard,
the weird athletic supporter look below...
or the gross looking felt pads on the bottom
or maybe it's my visual images of them in use.
Which is another subject in entirety,
how do people actually use these?

Whatever. My gag reflex has kicked in big time.

Kevin Cyr

When I saw Kevin Cyr's work on 20x200, I had no idea he was also the guy behind the camper bike (Which, by the way, is completely functional. Very cool.) I like his realistic style and mundane subject matter, but I think his bright color palette makes me love him. Check out his new die cast miniatures too.

Noah Kalina

I have a new photographer crush. His name is Noah Kalina.

it's about time...

for some good movies. The end of summer is always sad, but it does mean an end to summer blockbuster season. Beginners is a father/son story from Mike Mills (what!? that dad from The Sound of Music's gay? ). Dad/Daughter story a la Sophia Coppola Somewhere . And crazy people movies always make for good stuff, especially ones with this guy...
