Please, please photographers. I beg you. Stop trying to fix your bad images. Take them as a learning experience and hide them away never to be seen again. Do not edit them to be completely unrecognizable and pass them off as you having amazing photography skills. That is a lie. You are a retoucher at that point, a photographer no longer.
A very dear friend of mine (and insanely talented photographer) weighs in on her opinions about Photo Retouching. Very interesting points here. Well worth the read.
THIS Wednesday, 21st December at 9pm GMT you can watch the full length version of ‘Living Room Songs’ – a film by Ólafur Arnalds - including never before aired footage! Ólafur will be LIVE on air straight after the screening to answer any questions YOU might have
Ólafur Arnalds is hands down one of the most talented musicians working today. This is an event that is not to be missed!
Charitable Torture of the Day: Two seniors at Evanston Township High School in Illinois had a rather novel — if patently inhumane — idea for raising $1,000 to help a popular student hangout spot that was going under: Play Justin Bieber’s “Baby” over the PA system over and over until students coughed up the dough.
The Saved By The Bell-esque scheme proved successful: Despite having a whole week to raise the money, it took Runzel and Chatz only three days to reach their goal.
Really? This is news? Our school did “Stop the Bop” for years (MMM-Bop by Hanson incase that wasn’t clear) and raised hundreds if not thousands of dollars…
Oh well. I guess anything to do with the Biebs is newsworthy.
“Let us be clear: Nothing in our song or the video belongs to Universal Music Group. We have signed agreements with all artists endorsing Megaupload,” Megaupload CEO David Robb told TorrentFreak. “Efforts to reach out to UMG and open a dialog about this abuse of the DMCA process were answered with unfounded and baseless legal threats and demands for an apology.”
Right now, threats are the only weapon the entertainment industry has against Megaupload, because the sharing site complies with the law by responding to DMCA takedown notices.
These are text messages I exchange with my 17 year old cousin Bennett. He is a white boy that thinks he’s a Crip, works at Amoco, has a girlfriend named Mercedes, and is one of the most unintentionally funny and brilliant souls on the planet.
Okay, this is probably the world’s best chocolate tea. Honestly. Better than dessert. More reliable than sex. It’s a totally decadent combination of China black tea, vanilla, peppermint, chocolate bits and spicy red peppercorns. Plus it contains little red candy lips for a kiss of sweetness. In other words, it’s a completely satisfying spring experience with no guilt or strings attached.
Really liking this tea. It’s got a great peppermint flavour, though I must admit it overpowers all the other flavours. While I definitely get chocolate on the nose (fancy way of saying I smell chocolate) I don’t taste any. As such, I’m not sure it’d make sense to spend money on this over a cheaper straight peppermint tea.
Having said that it’s still a fantastic tea, and the fact that it’s caffeinated is a real plus for those nights when you want the flavour of peppermint but need a little jolt of caffeine. Also be interested to see how it would hold up with a sweetener and/or milk.
“Even in a seminar class,” his syllabus states, “it seems a little silly to require participation. Some students who are cripplingly shy, or who can’t always formulate their best thoughts and questions in the rapid back-and-forth of a group discussion, are nevertheless good and serious students. On the other hand, as Prof —- points out supra, our class can’t really function if there isn’t student participation—it will become just me giving a half-assed ad-lib lecture for 90 minutes, which (trust me) will be horrible in all kinds of ways.”
A vintage Abercrombie and Fitch catalogue from 1939. It’s hard to believe there was a time where Abercrombie wasn’t just about boring plaids, cheap calogne, dim lighting, and black and white photography of shirtless men…
In the wake of the recent news, listeners have contacted us and tweeted about the show we did two years ago at Penn State, #1 Party School. We listen again to some of those stories, with new interviews recorded this past week, as Penn State fans and loyalists try to make sense of the actions of Coach Joe Paterno and school officials.
#1 Party School is one of my all-time favourite TAL episodes. Their timely follow up is equally fascinating.
“Arrested Development is one of the finest American comedies in TV history and its return through Netflix is a perfect example of how we are working closely with studios and networks to provide consumers with entertainment they love,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in a statement.
I had a feeling this might be what would happen. This is a serious get for Netflix. I just hope that it will be available in Canada AS WELL as the US. We love it just as much as you guys!

I have been meaning to do a collection of my must-have iOS apps for a while now (especially since every friend who gets an iPhone asks me “What should I install!?), but this is a good substitute in the meantime.
