Mad Men and the Ugly 60s
I saw the season premiere last night of Mad Men and what I was afraid of has happened. The ugly fashion of the late sixties is in the show now. Even Pete Campbell, Mr. Republican WASP himself, is now sporting sideburns. I guess Draper will be wearing a leisure suit soon. Please, for the love of Mike, just don't make him get a weird afro perm like Mr. Brady of the Brady Bunch.
Publishing in the Post Print World
An excellent article in Gizmodo regarding publishing and the digital age. It’s no more a book on a screen than the notion that others had about “it” being just a horseless carriage, or just moving pictures, or just a mobile telephone. It requires new thinking about UI/UX in regards to us bookworms and the post print world.
Why Do We Keep Making Ebooks Like Paper Books?

Skyfall - film review
I just saw Skyfall and wanted to know… how do I get that Red Box machine to give me my money back? I’m being superfluous, but not by much. Half of it was your standard action flick and the other half was like watching Masterpiece Theatre. I want Quentin Tarantino to write & direct the next one and to use his suggestion to have it set in the sixties again.
And I want more babes in the next one too!

After 40 years and no hello
Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s. When they felt the relationship was ending, they walked the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again.
At her 2010 MoMa show Marina shared a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing and this is what happened.
(What impresses me the most is her determination not to say anything -Dario)

2015 Ford Mustang
I just saw this rendering the other day of the 2015 Mustang in Car & Driver. I've read from Jalopnik that 2 guys, that were in a Ford consumer clinic and actually saw the concept car, said that the car they saw didn't resemble this rendering. That's too bad cause that is one sweet looking ride. I agree with those that it strays too greatly from the look of the original Mustang of the sixties, but since Camaro has outsold the Mustang for the last 3 years, a new direction is probably needed. Whatever you do, Ford, please make the new model a full independent suspense. A live rear axle has been outdated for the last 20 years.
