While harmlessly bumbling around the internet one morning I happened upon Microwhat. It's times like these when I realize that no matter where you find yourself in life there is always someone out there is will do something and post photos of it on the internet. In this case all I know is that these are Before and After pictures of microwaving everything. As far as I am concerned that is all I need to know to enjoy them.

This is not new media, it's wordplay. Or maybe it is, I suppose blogs would fall under the umbrella of social media and Wikipedia informs me that social media is a form of new media. Sometimes I wonder how much of what I know is actually accurate or even worth knowing at all but I always find myself stumbling back from the precipice of existentialism and landing back in the internet.
At any rate, here are some more things I like and I am thinking about working with fibers when I get to Chicago. Clay and textiles share domestic connotations and it might be a nice challenge to tie this together with some sort of clever yet accessible comparison to politics or the environment or something else people care about. I just need to come up with the clever part and right now I am occupied with plane tickets and the apartment and job search and my ongoing intentions to sit under the sprinkler the superintendent puts out to water the lawn.

It's transition month full of packing and apartment and job hunting. New beginnings take a lot of organization and emotional togetherness and it's very hot out again so mainly its hard to get beyond laying in bed with a fan and a book and episodes of Seinfeld and something cold to drink or some frozen grapes while feeling bad for myself because I should be buying a plane ticket and building an installation on the creek. Maybe I just need to purchase some high quality mosquito repellent and start working at night. Change is good?
