AIGA thing

The Amandanites

Today I told my new roommate I was going to the Amanda Knight building to work on stuff.

She thought I said the "amandanite" building....Like a building full of Amandanites.

She was like, "Did I miss that part in the Book of Mormon?"

I thought it was comical.

Girls: We Are Doomed

Apparently we have two choices: graphic design or marriage. think of the girls you know who didn't make it into the program, are they married? probably. Meredith, Emily White, Becca, Katie, married. Jenny, Libby, Tara, Angie, Ashley, single. Even Julia, a newlywed, only made it a few days before she quit. We will need to get a count from the new Juniors to confirm my theory, but I'm pretty sure it will be consistent. We are married to our work, girls, get used to some long lonely nights.

lol :D

i found this whilst going through some files on my ipod.

i laughed out loud to myself for a couple minutes. again. because i did the first time when i made this little e-vite. maybe it's why only three or four people came to the party... i don't know. but i really think this is one of the funniest things i've ever seen. freaky and weird. but funny. i found these quirky photos when i searched google images for "pizza party" -- this was on some guy's blog. he was documenting a pizza party he had just had with some squirrels at the local park.

anyway, i couldn't resist posting this.

so now that school is starting again, does that mean this blog will start again too?

Double Whammy

Not only did I see a Song airplane on the LaGuardia airstrip, but whilst perusing an exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, there was a display on our beloved friend, the Target pharmacy labels. OK! I GET IT!

However, I work with a dude who went through the SVA undergrad program, and he gives it a rating of "eh, it was alright. They don't really teach you anything... [because all they do is keep telling us how this one girl redesigned Target's pharmacutical lables and revolutionized the entire world and how we should revolutionize the world too, one easy-to-read label at a time.]"

He didn't really say that last part, but I'm taking editorial liberty to include it, because he said it in his eyes.

the austin taylorettes

Tonight a few of us went to Muse music to see our good friend Austin Taylor play a show. Unfortunately, this is what we saw instead:

there was a couple dancing, alone, in the middle of the floor THE WHOLE TIME. SERIOUSLY and the girl wore really bad pants (see video)

i made extended eye contact with the girl a couple times and i had to physically restrain myself from laughing out right or giving her a dirty look. Jenny was being offered $200 to cut in. after the 3rd song or so (the couple danced through every single one, by the way) austin said "the winners of the dance contest are couple number 13! everyone give them a hand" they didn't get the hint and continued to dance totally off beat for the next hour. i didn't mind it most of the time, it was pretty entertaining, it was just the grinding that made me uncomfortable. there was no way you could fit a book of mormon in between them, even a pocket-sized one.

as i type right now i am uploading the other videos to google video (the files are too big for youtube). they are hi-larious. sometime go on google video and search for "stupid dancing couple acoustic guitar" and you should get it
