The Foldable Dehumidifier has a bellow-shaped water tank that expands as it fills up

A characteristic part of every dehumidifier is its water-tank, which pulls water vapor from the air to reduce its humidity. This water vapor condenses to turn into droplets of water that get collected within the dehumidifier, needing periodic emptying out. The bigger the tank, the more its capacity, and as a result, the bigger the dehumidifier. The Foldable Dehumidifier circumvents the problem of having massive dehumidifiers sitting in corners of our households. By essentially mounting the tank ...

Artist Manager Jasper Parrott On Managing Artists In The Digital Age

“Finding performances online is a very impoverished view of the inspirational value of making live art. Art should be live. I know this myself because I’ve grown up throughout the whole period. I actually very seldom listen to music online or on recordings because, to me, the essence of the whole experience, the core value of creative activity, is a live experience. Therefore, the more of that you have, the more that is sustainable and the more that society believes in that whole princip...

Meet the Wisdom Tree, a bookshelf that looks like a Christmas tree and works like an ambient lamp

The name Wisdom Tree is perhaps the most apt for this bookshelf. Books impart knowledge, and when you’ve got a book-rack modeled on the shape of an evergreen tree, what better name could you possibly think of?! Meet the Wisdom Tree… it’s part bookshelf, part ambient-light. It illuminates your books and your space with a warm glow, while providing up to 5 storage racks for your current-reads. The shelf’s angular platforms let you stack the books open and face down, so you don’t really need a book...

Elizabeth Warren Hired A Poet For Her Campaign. It Was A Very Good Idea

“In recent months, Senator Warren has become an even more effective storyteller. During a rally last month she conjured the Triangle shirtwaist factory fire in rich detail: “It was March 25, 1911; it was a Saturday. And at about 4:45 in the afternoon, people walking through this very park looked up and saw black smoke billowing into the sky.” While still professorial, Warren’s campaign speeches are increasingly verging on lyrical.” – The New York Times

Museums Reject “Dirty” Money? How About We Nationalize Them?

National African-American Museum Is A Conflicted Proposition

“The central question that the museum presents is the degree to which a national memorial to the history and culture of a marginalized people, set in that nation’s capital and funded and supported by that nation’s federal government, can hold the nation accountable to not just its past but its present situation.” – The New Yorker

Why The Recent Backlash Against Superhero Movies?

You Could Drive a Person Crazy

Years ago, I wrote a blog post about the various types of people who show up at auditions. It was a fairly hostile post, when I look back at it, but my intent was to write a funny, cautionary post -- in other words, don't be these people. And that post is now my most visited post ever, with about 7,300 hits so far. I hope it spares me, Dowdy, and other directors some abuse, unintentional though it may be...Now, as a sequel to that list, here's a top ten list of the kinds of people we encounter ...
