Sunday Support Group: Roger Angell

I've been on a reading kick lately. Some while back I read a book called The Thing About Life is that One Day You'll Be Dead, by David Shields. The book is a vigorously morbid catalogue of all the possible predicaments of being trapped in a deteriorating infrastructure. The book is chock full of interesting facts about aging and the ages and stages of life. I can't say it was good to read, but it is good to have read it, turns out. Aside from being a bit of a horror show, it's very interesting a...

Disney's Pixar is being sued by a San Francisco tattoo artist who says her designs for a unicorn-emblazoned van in the upcoming animated movie 'Onward' were stolen

A San Francisco artist is suing Disney's Pixar for allegedly not only stealing her artwork for the studio's upcoming animated film "Onward" but also for doing so under "wickedly misleading pretenses." Pixar rented Sweet Cicely Daniher's van emblazoned with a unicorn for a company event in September 2018 as a visual prop, only for Daniher to watch the film's trailer months later and spot an animated van that she says is identical to hers. In the filed complaint, Daniher said the film's producer...

what are you willing to fail at?

Over the weekend, I watched a documentary film on creativity. The documentary was mildly interesting, but one of the interview subjects said something that I thought was particularly striking. He was discussing what part failure has played in his success as a writer, and while he obviously said that he’d failed more times in life than he could remember, he also said this:He said that to be creative, you have to be willing ...

Crazy work, Saint Justice tweaks and AMS tools – 2020 Writing Week 7

This week was crazy at work – I had my first session in the Main Lecture Theatre – 400 capacity, and it was pretty much full. 340, apparently. I think it was not the easiest group either – the lecturers who mostly run this cohort are struggling to control them, make them be quiet, make them stop cheating. I was running a session on plagiarism. It’s definitely the case with this new job that every new class I come into, I have to grab their attention and hold it. Normally as a teacher you do this...

#untitled - 160220. This too shall pass.

Its been a while since I wrote an untitled piece (the last one was in Nov last year). Thing is, there's way too much going on in my head and I don't know who to talk to and thus this post. Super ranty. Read at peril. Ignore if you can. And why am I writing? Clear my head. Archive my thoughts. Throw my intent in the universe. So, this is one of those days when I have a mile-long list of things to do and almost no energy to get any of those done. I mean I have all the energy of a child to move aro...

"At 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 31, Hailey Moore and Dr. Kristopher Hansen stood in the dark at the Mesa Arch trailhead inside Canyonlands National Park near Moab, Utah."

"The half-mile to the arch was snow-covered and wound past prickly bushes, boulders, frozen puddles, cactuses and dead-but-still-standing trees. Ms. Moore, 40, and Dr. Hansen, 38, were eloping, with no guests.... Their only companions were Jess and Austin Drawhorn, a married team of photographers... The Drawhorns, who were dressed like backcountry hikers, wore headlamps and handed the bride and groom metal cleats to pull over their shoes...."From "An Unexpected Path Leads to a Fresh Start/An elo...

3 ways the Fuji X100 changed the camera industry forever

The Fujifilm X100 was the single most impactful camera of the 2010’s. I’ve seen folks say the same about the Sony A7/A7R, Samsung Galaxy NX1, and various micro 4/3 cameras. But I will argue that the Fujifilm X100 delivered a bigger bang than all of them combined.
