"You know what you want, you’re just afraid to admit it because you’re afraid of failing. screw that. Screw your fear. You know what you want, which is a hell of a lot more than most other people. So don’t be afraid or ashamed. Just go on and get it."
"This traffic jam was never there when people made their own decisions. That means that something is fundamentally wrong at that location."
I love this project in Winnipeg by Toronto-based RAW Design where giant, colourful balls made of pool noodles have added some much needed colour into a grey winter environment. They also work to trap warmth so you can dive in and thaw your face.
It’s silly and weird, sure, but we could use a bit more of that in our public spaces, especially in the winter.

giant koosh balls. awesome.
That moment when you realize car-centric sprawl was planned intentionally and was mandated by zoning laws — a social/economic experiment that allowed for a segregation of classes and a quick return on the development on cheap land.
And that future generations are now left with the task of correcting the environmental and social damage of that sprawl.
So funny!! :) have a great day!
so gr8 :)))))))
BICYCLE ACTIVISM: Latvian activists from a branch of the bicycle advocacy group Let’s Bike it recently created a visual reminder of the space taken by cars on a typical road. To this end, the group fabricated bamboo skeletons shaped like actual cars and mounted them on their bikes. The activists then cycled around the streets of Riga for several hours to highlight the absurdity of using a large car to move a single person. The stunt was organized as part of European Mobility Week, an ongoing campaign that explores sustainable urban mobility around Europe.

My knuckles are raw from punching the bag. What’s the point of trying anymore when the chances of graduating this semester are approaching zero.
cool advertising concept, but blocking the sidewalk—no.

I like Halloween in Australia because I can buy 5 packs of fun-size chocolates in preparation and know that at the end of the day the only bitch eating them will be me because no bitch kid trick-or-treats around here no matter how hard Woolworths tries to make it a thing.
