211 / The weather, city edition

Ο φίλος Stefan Trifan, creative director, δημιουργεί πολύ ωραία γραφιστικά πραγματάκια που αγαπάμε να λατρεύουμε. Το εξαιρετικό για μένα είναι ότι η δουλειά του κινείται στα πλαίσια του simple 'n simplicity που προσωπικά βρίσκω διεγερτικό. Έτσι λοιπόν έφτιαξε κι ένα ωραιότατο, minimal, weather screensaver για mac. Ήδη έχει ετοιμάσει versions για διάφορες πόλεις του κόσμου, ανάμεσα τους και το request μου για τη Λάρισα. Τσιμπάς την πόλη σου ή ευγενικά ζητάς το custom made screensaver και ο Stefan πρόθυμα και άμεσα θα το συμπληρώσει στη λίστα. Εξαιρετική δουλειά!

210 / immaculate heart college art department rules

  1. Find a place you trust and then try trusting it for a while.
  2. General duties of a student: pull everything out of your teacher, pull everything out of your fellow students.
  3. General duties of a teacher: pull everything out of your students.
  4. Consider everything an experiment.
  5. Be self-disciplined. This means finding someone wise or smart and choosing to follow them. To be disciplined is to follow in a good way. To be self-disciplined is to follow in a better way.
  6. Nothing is a mistake. There is no win and no fail. There is only make.
  7. The only rule is work. If you work it will lead to something. It’s the people who do all of the work all the time who eventually catch on to things.
  8. Don’t try to create and analyse at the same time. They’re different processes.
  9. Be happy whenever you can manage it. Enjoy yourself. It’s lighter than you think.
  10. “We’re breaking all of the rules. Even our own rules. And how do we do that? By leaving plenty of room for X quantities.” - John Cage.
Helpful hints: Always be around. Come or go to everything always. Go to classes. Read anything you can get your hands on. Look at movies carefully often. Save everything, it might come in handy later.

There should be new rules next week.

207 / long time passing

Την κομματάρα αυτή την έχω ακούσει μονάχα μία φορά έξω. Και ήταν διπλό το χτύπημα. Τη βόμβα πέταξε ο Δημήτρης Παπασπυρόπουλος και αυτή έσκασε στο boarding pass στο Χαλάνδρι. Πριν 4-5 χρόνια; Δε θα μπορούσε καλύτερα.
Dream on...
