SUI GENERIS

Until the day we die

so like, when you find the people who understand 99% of you, HOLD ON

Until the day we die

so like, when you find the people who understand 99% of you, HOLD ON

even when you’re looking up at the williamsburg bridge twinkling as the sun sets and the sounds of deep house and the J train converge 

only part of you is living in the moment

the other part is marveling at the fact that you can still marvel at such things

… i am pagliacci

follow your heart enjoy life

Designs for Living

this entire experience was surreal, heavenly - my only regret is not having a real camera to capture this space

Meanwhile design, which used to be almost unknown as a profession, has become a major source of pollution. Encouraged by glossy lifestyle magazine, and marketing departments, its become a competition to make things as noticeable as possible by means of colour, shape and surprise. Its historic and idealistic purpose, to serve industry and the happy consuming masses at the same time, of conceiving things easier to make and better to live with, seems to have been side-tracked. The virus has already infected the everyday environment. The need for businesses to attract attention provides the perfect carrier for the disease. Design makes things seem special, and who wants normal if they can have special?

And thats the problem. Once normal has been wiped out theres no going back. Its a bit like building new housing on virgin countryside, or developing huge areas of cities at one time. What has grown naturally and unselfconsciously over the years cannot easily be replaced.

SHUT UP AND EAT

Except when we are talking food, where the older I get, the spicier and more painful I want it. It’s one of the things that hooked me earliest and most irrevocably about Southeast Asia: the spices, the chiles, the funky, mouth searing sauces and dips. Any idiot, of course, can dump enough cayenne or hot sauce into a bowl of ground beef and ignite your head. But it takes a master to build the deeply pleasurable slow boil you find in some Thai dishes: the delicate interplay between sweet and sour and spicy, the gradual build up of pleasure/pain to the point that you feel your vision starting to get weird.
