The SF Weekly reviews our film fest. Ok, it’s not really mockery — fairly positive even. There’s mention of a Stephen Coles in there. Odd quote with which to close the article, but I admittedly relish the attention in any form.
Hellerware by Massimo & Lela Vignelli — Already living this fantasy. I inherited a set of red rounded square plates from Mom and Dad or Grandma or someone. Each features a nifty built-in well for the mugs.
Marimekko Wallpaper by Katsuji Wakisaka — Not so related but I had to say we had the car bedding when we were kids. Great to finally know the designer’s name. Darn, can’t find my sisters’ bathroom wallpaper at that expansive site, but it looked a lot like this.
As always, click the pics to biggify. I am leaning toward the André, but the Goetz would go really well with my blesséd Eames. The Raffinato is the beauty that didn’t make it through my apartment’s entrance (a doorway that is sized for the smaller race of humans that lived on this planet in the ’20s).
In other news: this sofa bed is pretty slick — almost too slick. Not only does the back fold down, but the arms swing around to become foot rests. Don’t believe it? See the video.
Went to see the Ravel at Scandinavian Designs today. Strangely, it only comes in one color, and you’re lookin’ at it. Moss green just won’t do with my rug. That’s a drag — it’s only $695.
It may already be common LDS folklore, but this was news to me: Kevin Bacon tells Terry Gross about how he enrolled as an exchange student at a Provo, Utah high school while doing research for “Footloose”. Fascinating. The story begins at 23:45, but you should listen to the entire interview. He’s a pretty articulate guy.
I had big guys threatening to beat me up, and girls giggling … it was very much like the movie.
… these kids were all farmers and jocks and dressed accordingly, and I had a sorta punk hairdo and skinny tie and funky-lookin’ jacket and stuff like that. I remember them looking at me like I was a freak.”
