What is Chineseness?

When I think about human history and civilization, it always appears to be like a string: one extreme is old time and tradition; current and contemporary is the other. Interestingly, when we turn and join the two extremes together, it forms a perfect circle and creates a new language of art.

Charles: Level with me, Red. When are the robots planning to rise up and take over?
Red Robot: Typical extrovert perspective. We’re on your desks. We’re in your phones. We count your money. We heat your homes. We navigate your cars. We time your mac and cheese.

We’ve already taken over everything that matters.

But you’re welcome to whatever’s left of nature!

Happy 25th birthday Photoshop. I hate the monster you’ve become, please don’t leave me. You were the killer app for many a photographer otherwise too frightened to touch a computer. Having been a user for under two decades, I must acknowledge the influence of your creators, Thomas and John Knoll on my creative life.

Take a Bite

 

Did you notice something?
Did the world seem different since the moment you woke up today?
Everyone’s excited,
Everyone feels happy in a way they can’t explain today.

Doesn’t matter who you are,
How your week has been so far,
Cause you know when lunch time comes, that everything will be OK

Hooray, pizza day
Hooray, pizza day

Speaking of biting into something tasty, I recommend watching Warm Bodies with someone special.

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy
PSY, Gangnam Style (watch the video)
