How does this blog work? Is it advisable to build your own little museum of cool for all the internet to see? This blog runs on:
a) clipped links: a choose-your-own-life-adventure (financial edition) from New York Magazine is amazing
. I don't really understand the nyc signifiers, nor do I completely agree with ends justify the means vocational planning, but I fully support Flash based infographics.
b) self referential nonsense: I just learned how to moderate my comments. Shout-outs forthcoming. Also- I used somebody else's proprietary photography in an August post. Problem fixed, apology sent. Now, go to Broad & Market
for some Philadelphia street fashion photos and everything will be alright.
c) the unauthorized sharing of sound meaning:holy fuck- tone bank jungle
This blog runs on the inability to keep things, especially things of striking excellence, to oneself.
