Yo, you remember this ad, right? 

"Aaron Burr! Aaaaaaron Burr!? AARON BURR!"

Classic “Got Milk” ad, right?

But wait.

I just learned a fact about this ad that is going to bother you.

I’m going to tell you what it is.

But be warned.

It’ll really upset you.

Okay, you ready?

You know who directed it?

(You’re going to be upset when you find out.)

This classic “Got Milk” ad

Was directed by …

.

Michael Bay.

Fact.

Sorry for ruining your day.

When you find a great new Tumblr who has amazing stuff and it isn’t until a few days later that your realize they post 1000 times a day.

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.  ― Ellen Goodman
holy shit.

If you like listening to things and those things happen to be podcasts you should listen to the podcast Reasonably Sound
It’s made by my friend Mike Rugnetta who also hosts PBS’s wildly successful Idea Channel show. He’s really good at explaining the science behind broad concepts like sound, hearing and music, while also adding a philosophical angle on how these concepts help us understand our perceptions of the world.
At press time he’s put out three episodes: The Ear, The Voice and Quiet and all three are great.
He’d have some clever turn of phrase about how listening to a podcast is a metaphor for how sound waves impact the world or about the ripples of information that resonate from a source, but I’m not that clever.

Joan Rivers and her card catalogue of jokes

imwithkanye:

[Watch the video]

Joan Rivers talking about her filing system in the documentary, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (on Netflix Watch Instantly)

GQ:

For the past thirty-some years, Rivers has been filing each and every joke she’s written (at this point she’s amassed over a million) in a library-esque card cabinet housed in her Upper East Side apartment. The jokes—most typed up on three-by-five cards—are meticulously arranged by subject, which Rivers admits is the hardest part of organizing: “Does this one go under ugly or does it go under dumb?”

GQ has a slideshow of some of the cards:

I gave up on my photoblog for a number of reasons but a big one was because I had been coding the whole thing by hand. Straight up HTML is exhausting.
So instead I’ve been using Medium as a new platform for my photoblog and it’s been working really well. Check out my latest update over there.
