Kinda cool... They all follow the same prescription...

The Golden Filter

So, yeah.
Another hipster crush kind of. Just think she's cute. Music is generic as crap though....
Man, I'm sad....

On a side note, I'm sick and tired.




Oslo Train Station

Design by Space Group.... A few months ago. Design for new retrofit for Oslo Train Station... Kinda cool. Essentially the same programmatically as:

gare de nord station, paris, france

kings cross station, london, england

Interesting how it all stays the same........ even through the ages...



Probably not a good idea....

So.... this picture was found on this website which i found hilarious because I guess its a sex addicts how to page. not sure what walking along a railroad track has to do with being abstinate.... I always thought trains were slightly sexual myself.... I mean... just look at this:


Model Trains...

Kind of a weird hobby but hey... so is architecture...


although there's already a day dedicated to this, i'm starting the first ever National Train Week.

I love trains. this is in honor of the fact that i'm selling my car to get money for grad school so i will be using the train systems in and around boston/ new england to get around instead of cars. oh yeah.

here's the first post of TRAIN WEEK!

From the amazing Dark Was the Night compilation (featuring a bunch of really good bands doing covers/ new songs inspired by blues songs), this is Feist and Ben Gibbard of Death Cab doing some sweet song about trains. Oh yeah.

Train Song - Feist and Ben Gibbard



This is by far one of the worst things I think i've ever seen. Seriously? This thing is a national icon and some new york based company is going to consider painting it silver to "help give more LEED points". You know what? Fuck LEED. Fuck Willis. Fuck shiny skyscrapers. The black of the Sears Tower and the Hancock Building are beautiful. Take a cue from the nastiness that is the Trump Tower: Shiny silver looks awful.
I already regretted the renaming of the Sears Tower. I mean hell, what if we randomly decided to change the name of the Statue of Liberty to the Statue of Equality or something? New Yorkers would be in an uprage. Don't change a national monument and a historic landmark!!! There are other ways to aquire LEED than by making a building ugly! I find it interesting too that the company doesn't hire SOM to do this either... It's their building... They know more about it than anyone. MISTAKE!



greatest blog of all time

nostalgic musings

heard this song on the radio and actually quite liked it. gave up on this band (with the notable exception of the 30 second ending of Memphis Will be Laid to Waste feat. Aaron Weis of mwY) years ago so this comes after my rejection of them.
I really quite like it. Not too generic like their other stuff. Reminds me kind of of a more epic Every Time I Die.

God.... I'm returning to high school musically....

Someone out there, please for the love of everything, stop doing the same generic hipster indie crap. I'm sick of noise and sick of pop and all the cross breeds of the two.
