cease to exist

this was two and a half years ago. what's with the underpants, dude? i remember being really interested in the fact that the beach boys recorded a song by charles manson and changed the words "cease to exist" to something tamer. nice glasses, nerd.

more green and brown fuzz

deep trunk grooves

wookie the dog.

this kind of thing just happens up there.

the amazing lind family and my mom cruise the beach. i heard this was some secret surf spot.

cousin dirk contemplates this tree. it looks like it used to hold something. maybe something enchanted. like a unicorn egg.

droplets on this thing.

Designer and educator Victor Papanek (1927-1999) was a strong advocate of the socially and ecologically responsible design of products, tools, and community infrastructures. He disapproved of manufactured products that were unsafe, showy, maladapted, or essentially useless. His products, writings, and lectures were collectively considered an example and spur by many designers. Papanek was a philosopher of design and as such he was an untiring, eloquent promoter of design aims and approaches that would be sensitive to social and ecological considerations. He wrote that "design has become the most powerful tool with which man shapes his tools and environments (and, by extension, society and himself)."

"One of my first jobs after leaving school was to design a table radio," Papanek wrote in Design for the Real World. "This was shroud design: the design of external covering of the mechanical and electrical guts. It was my first, and I hope my last, encounter with appearance design, styling, or design ‘cosmetics’." And further, he opined: "Only a small part of our responsibility lies in the area of aesthetics."

In the same book, Papanek wrote: "Much recent design has satisfied only evanescent wants and desires, while the genuine needs of man have often been neglected by the designer."

shred city shredder

do you know what is pretty incredible? being alive.
dudes, i am sleepy today. one day you're drinking coffee from a paper cup in a rental car, then you'll be next to cash register drawing on a blank skateboard while people are napping in a driftwood shack, then you're under a tree in the pacific northwest hiding from the fuzz, then you're listening to a seagull next to the ocean which is next to a giant forest which is next to a mountain and your mom is taking a nap as you catch up on celebrity gossip. long may we shred, my brothers and sisters, long may we shred.

then my mom got in a tree.

and i finally found a new apartment.
