Random Linkage

Coffee With an Architect

Women’s Magazines Then and Now – Interesting comparison. Women’s magazines bore me.

Bring back Twinkies – Hah! Finally a cause we can all believe in. (Or not. I actually don’t like Twinkies.)

Portraits of Flowers – Beautiful

News oops – Seriously, why do we even need the mainstream media anymore?

Belly Button Biodiversity – Scientific navel gazing?

Christmas: Cats’ point of view – Heh.

Archival Tendency – Beautiful and interesting images

Cherpumple – Hmmmm… I can’t decide if that looks heavenly or gross. I’m leaning toward the former, unfortunately.

Adidas vs. Puma – Interesting. (By the way, isn’t it funny that an old-fashioned word meaning shoemaker is also the name of a kind of dessert?)

    I think the saddest transformation from then and now is Redbook’s — it used to be a literary magazine, and now it’s just another “Lose Weight Decorate Your House Cook A 5-Course Meal Have Babies Raise Your Man!” rag. Also notice how the then Seventeen Magazine featured a girl — a member of its readership — on the cover, and today’s version has a group of young attractive males — i.e., what young girls should learn to focus on instead of themselves. And the past is supposed to be more sexist than now.

    Thanks for the link to Kuriositas – glad you enjoyed the article about 1910s America in color. When I first saw the pictures I knew I had to share!
