Getting Back on Track

Emily here.

It seems I haven’t posted in who-knows-how-long due to family visits and the preoccupation of a new apartment/moving in and out of the dorm. However, I have been keeping tabs on some neat things noted during brief, periodic internet check-ins. So, if I had been posting regularly throughout the week, these are some of the things I may have drawn attention to, in quick-link form (via Boing Boing unless otherwise stated):

David Byrne turns entire building into musical instrument.

Ceramic ray guns.

The Offline Oracle, via Craft.

Global map of social-networking sites and their use.

Hopefully, blogging on my part will resume some semblance of regularity in coming days.

Oh, and another thing. Not until yesterday did I believe it was possible to truly fall in love with a piece of furniture (clearly I’ve been spending way too much time with one of my aunts, who is in the life-long process of continually renovating and redecorating her apartment). But then I saw this on display somewhere in SoHo, and whoa, were my preconceptions shattered. The picture, of course, does not do this item justice–at all. First of all, that wardrobe is BIG. My head wasn’t that much higher than the handles, standing next to it, on the other side of a glass barrier. And it’s wide. I just want to crawl up inside of it and make it my home.

I can’t stop thinking about it.

Of course, it’s so expensive that the price is available only on request, and therefore, it and I will never co-habitate. I guess I’ll see you in a parallel dreamworld, then, my whimsical Wonka-Seuss furniture friend…

    Aww, hahaha

    Maybe we will make our own.

    I hope so.
