If you ride a fixed gear bike, you know that changing the tooth-count on your chainring or cog can change the way you ride. You also know at some point you will hit your maximum cadence (the number of revolutions of the crank per minute); how fast you say? Chainvetica will help. How is different then the all the other iphone gear-ratio apps? Why the clean helvetica type design with an analogous orange palette.
More often than not, this is the song that’s stuck in my head. It’s the kind of song that you hear for the first time, and you never want it to stop. I remember where I was when I heard it, who I was with, and will always be indebted to my friend Dane for my profound love of Morrissey and The Smiths (maybe I am a closeted hipster). I am especially obsessed with the Live at Earls Court album. Please enjoy.
Sidenote regarding live music: one of my favorite hobbies is scouring used record stores for live albums of my favorite artists. It’s a great way to get a new spin on an old favorite, and if you’re a rabid Bob Dylan fan like I am, you know that each song can be arranged one thousand different ways. As far as live Bob, It Ain’t Me Babe off the Bootleg Series Volume 5 can be described in no other way than indescribable.
The use of all the different logos is very clever and the story line is pretty captivating. I laughed out loud pretty hard whilst watching but I don’t want to spoil anything, just watch. Shit is fucked up in logo-angeles (?).
In light of the fact that I didn’t post a Monday Menu this week (I was traveling, sorry!) I am posting this recipe generating site with a bad attitude. If you want menu options with more profanities I suggest you try out www.whatthefuckshouldimakefordinner.com. Why didn’t I think of this?
As promised, I took some photos of the Michael Gormley art installation around Madison Square Park called Event Horizon. It’s been a little controversial because a lot of 911 resources have been wasted by phone calls about very still people about to jump off buildings. The flip side is that in a city where only tourists look up at the buildings it gives people a reason to look around at the beautiful architecture. I have a bunch so look for more below the jump.
Michael Deal, designer at Pentagram, is working on an ongoing collaborative project called Charting the Beatles, which explores he music of the Beatles through information graphics. I always enjoy seeing how different designers take loads of information and organize it into something that is easily comprehensible. I also never tire of reading information about the Beatles. I really enjoyed going through the self reference chart and connecting all the songs together. Although the designs are beautifully minimal, I wonder if there is any nod to the Beatles with color or other elements. You can click on the images for a larger view, or you can check out Michael’s site.
