New Year's Resolution

From a "year in review, year in preview" piece at Luminous Landscape came this interesting digression on the rumored imminent ultra high resolution sensors:  "It is difficult to tell a really good 24-26 MP print from a 45-60 MP print at 16×24” – it’s possible, but under close inspection – even an experienced observer would have a hard time on the wall. A 24×36” print from a really good 24-26 MP sensor and lens looks good on the wall, even in a gallery – but put it next to a 45-60 MP version an...

At loose (video) ends...

Bobbi and I tend to watch something over dinner and, for most of the past couple years at least, it's been binge-watching various shows or miniseries (miniserieses?). Anyway, we're done with The Queen's Gambit and, unfortunately, we're caught up with the current season of The Expanse, which means it will be trickling out on Wednesdays for us now. I'm currently nosing through shows with 30-min or 1-hr episodes and at least two or three seasons in the can, looking for the next bit of dinner thea...

As the ship continues to spring new leaks...

...the new leaks keep getting funnier. You know, if I'm counting on you to protect me from assassins, not only can you use my loo, you can come hang out with me while I'm on the throne, too. Don't worry, there's a magazine rack if the conversation gets dull. https://t.co/nKbfscMWWH— Tamara K. (@TamSlick) January 15, 2021 [Author: Tam]

Literary Moon Tiger by Penelope Lively

'The elderly Claudia Hampton, a best-selling author of popular history; lies alone in a London hospital bed. Memories of her life still glow in her fading consciousness, but she imagines writing a history of the world. Instead, Moon Tiger is her own history, the life of a strong, independent woman, with its often contentious relations with family and friends. At its center — forever frozen in time, the still point of her turning world — is the cruelly truncated affair with Tom, a British tank co...

On the Art of Not Living a Careful Life

I started off the year by writing about measuring sticks . The metaphorical kind, not actual tape measures (although I’ve written plenty about those too.) And while I used bodies and physical aesthetics as an example, that is really just one of many ways Other People’s Measuring Sticks show up in our lives.  The way people portray perfect lives on social media is another. Or the way we place value on money, and job titles, and social status. (And I suppose in this day and age we should add...

Los Angeles native Amanda Gorman will be youngest poet to read at presidential inauguration

When Amanda Gorman reads one of her poems during the installation of Joe Biden as 46th president of the United States, the 22-year-old Los Angeles native will become the youngest poet ever to appear in a presidential inauguration. Gorman, while young, is no stranger to sharing her work on significant stages.

Uhuru’s Fantastic Fold

In many ways, Brooklyn during the past two decades has evolved from rough to refined. So we’re happy to see Uhuru is still inspired by the urban iconography that yet dominates the borough. Witness the Fold collection, comprised of an end table, bench, and console—each with an intriguing and intricate origami-esque structure. Fittingly, the form is inspired by civic detritus, the shipping straps endemic to Uhuru’s industrial neighborhood: “Organically crushed by trucks, the stra...

Small Organized Spaces ~ Organized Fridge Freezer Fixes

Hey there y’all! I’m back today with another Small Organized Spaces post. I’m talking about my organized fridge freezer today. And as of last week it was most definitely not organized.
