Seasonique (R)

Um, I don't think it's in Nature's plan for women to have ONLY 4 PERIODS A YEAR. The hell? Introducing: Seasonique! There have been many a pharmammercial that have raised my eyebrows, but this takes the cake. Don't mess with the plumbing, ya'll! What effect does this have on ovulation? Implantation? Hormone levels? Good Christ! Don't even try to explain it to me. Don't. Because I don't believe you.

Here's your cool thing for Saturday. Not my cup of tea normally, but i'm fascinated by these pieces by Brian Dettmer of Centripetal Notion. They are "book autopsies". I picture this guy with coke-bottle glasses, hunched over an art desk, surrounded by Exacto blades. Check 'em out.

cool shizz for thursday

I'm sick. With a really bad cold that makes me cry a little. Other symptoms:
1. Not so much a symptom, but I am also enjoying that time of the month. Kill me now.
2. Headache in tandem with neckache. 2 Tylenol every 5 hours does the trick.
3. Insatiable appetite for junk food. Luckily in my fridge I've got some leftover Paxti's deep dish and cooked it right up. This is a dangerous and somewhat problematic symptom.

To make me feel better, here's some cool design shizz for Thursday. L. and I went to a little shop on Upper Market on Saturday, before the Capsule Design Fair in Hayes Valley: Rare Device.
Great shop with tons of art books. We discovered and bought a book of artwork by Evan Hecox:.
