Just ran this through the aged photo filter in Lightroom. I like, I like a lot.
On a side note, enjoy:
There’s some words you just have to love for the diversity in meaning they bring.
Take rigor, for example. It can be “something hard to endure”, “valid”, “severity of character”, “stiffening”, “chill”; it can imply intellectual or scientific discipline, and so on.
Just sayin’. Pardon my ramblings.
Definitions of rigor on the Web:
Came across this on the web. Total awesomeness. Love the Godard and Woody, and the King Kong and Quasimodo ones especially.
were a couple of performances by a String Quartet and a Piano Quintet, and running into a cat named Pepper at a colleague’s home.
Mark Twain once said, that history seldom repeats itself, but it often rhymes. Was reorganizing my bookshelf the other day, and came across one of my bookmarks in Camus’ L’Homme Revolté. It reads:
“On the day when crime dons the apparel of innocence — through a curious transposition peculiar to our times — it is innocence that is called upon to justify itself.”
Sounds familiar? How many echoes, how many rhymes do you hear in the culture around you?
They played this at the Arties Festival at the NCPA last night. Beautiful, lively piece. It was like reading a Dumas novel.

– Dag Hammarskjöld
Obama’s a politician who makes a load of sense. Was just listening to him talking about learning from thought-leaders — the active example being Mahatma Gandhi, but in effect extending to all thought-leaders from the past, from sages to philosophers to politicians and so on.
He spoke of how they serve as his guiding lights – and that while he doesn’t live up to their standards often – he certainly works to extend, to build upon the great ideas of the past. And to keep pushing ahead.
That’s what I’ve liked about Obama; he’s looked to build above all else. He needs to get back on brief, and be himself in all the policies he’s working on now.
Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle has more informed explanations than this one, mostdef, but an interesting idea came to mind the other day.
At it’s very basic it talks about how the fundamental particles tend to be, well, particles or waves depending on what about them you’re studying.
Wouldn’t how we define our identities be similar? There are things we are (or are not) and things we are sometimes (or aren’t sometimes).
How do we use these questions of identity and value in crafting interactions with the stories we write our brands?
Not so much an advertising question as it’s a make-stuff-for-people question.
