I’d Like You to Hate to “Like” Me (via japecake)

10 Jul

HATE IT!

I'd Like You to Hate to "Like" Me Thursday's Wall Street Journal carried an excellent, thought-provoking article on what its author describes as the "like" culture, an "insidious" phenomenon that has crept up, like a thing ascending creepily, in the world of social media. The sobering thesis is that many active participants in social med … Read More

Street Art of Blu: Murals in Berlin and Lisbon I stumbled upon Blu murals on my last two trips to Europe. While I love Blu's mind-blowing wall-painting animations like Big Bang Big Boom and Muto, it's cool to come upon his still images—and remnants of his animations—on facades around the world.

They have fond memories of the glorious Top 40 days, when rock topped the charts. I’ll admit, it’d be great to see rock bands at the top these days, but I’m a realist, and know that’s a stretch. Pop kills rock. It’s been done. … Read More
