Such beautiful photography

i want my own place
i want to be naked in the city and take pictures
I’ve spent the better part of 2013 behind bars so far. Remodeling this blog SOON. Thank you for prayers and good wishes. I’m also thankful for everyone who pushed me to pursue my fixation with writing. If it wasn’t for the positive feedback I would have had nothing to keep myself sane.
This motherfucker right here.
Experience Design can encompass a lot of things, but at the core you might say it’s about crafting a feeling. If your canvas for experience design is, say, a bridge, and you want to ignite the senses of one laying eyes on that bridge, you might shoot for “awe” as a feeling to engender. But that is a bit overdone, no?
The city of Trenton agreed when, in 1935, they designed the ultimate (and probably only) feeling of passive aggression ever to come from a bridge. The city inverted a phrase coined by state senator S. Roy Heath when they slapped on the side of the Lower Trenton Bridge for all the world to see: “TRENTON MAKES THE WORLD TAKES”
Spaced out just as it is here, with a few beats between “MAKES” and “THE” for dramatic (contemptuous?) effect*, and illuminated every evening, it was perhaps not the most forward thinking phrase for the city to adopt. Nonetheless it is still there; the words’ back turned to passing motorists escaping the city with loads of Trenton-built… well, we won’t rub it in. We know what it’s like to come from a former manufacturing hub.
Suffice to say, Trenton, that’s one unique example of experience design you’ve got going there.
Listen to more about the Lower Trenton Bridge here.
*Or, likely, out of engineering necessity…
haha this is so funny. Hitler discovers that Chris Cole rides for DC. Must watch
As of the 28th of December 2012, the Sony Playstation 2 production is no more. For myself, like many others hearing this left me with a small feeling of sadness. However this sadness should be seen in a positive light; because of what the Playstation 2 did that made it so great, what it did so people cared when production stopped; and the answer to that is simple. It was a console that bought us great games and without a doubt helped push gaming forward after selling over 150,000,000 units over it’s *almost* 13 year span. It demonstrated gaming is a great investment for both the producers and consumers.
Ps2 finally at rest, you will still be played and honored as one of gaming’s greatest.
