Hey, Tumblr! I need help with something I’m working on…

italicsmine:

If you read my book, California, and hated my protagonist Frida, and are willing to discuss your feelings with me, the authoress, please email me at edan dot lepucki at gmail dot com.

THANK YOU! (And please reblog)…

Well, I liked Frida, but if you disagree help Edan out. And if you haven’t read California… get to a bookstore already!

So that just happened: transported 18 helium-filled balloons home on the subway. Only one popped (before I got on the train, probably from snagging a tree).

Fuck yea! (at Melody Lanes)

Guys, disco bowling at Melody Lanes on a Saturday night is magical. There are families and teenagers and twenty- and thirty-somethings dancing in neighboring lanes between frames, some on dates or in groups or at parties, and the kind of ethnic diversity that makes you thankful to live in New York. And for $22 each you can bowl for 3 hours. (It’s called something Madness? I don’t know, but it’s great and we loved bowling for so long and slowly getting better that we’re talking about joining a league.)And after living in the neighborhood for seven years I finally met the legendary Pete. (He always had the night off when I’ve been before.) Also, I finally broke 100 in a game in I don’t remember how long after hitting my groove and bowling two strikes in a row. I just needed three games and countless pitchers to get warmed up.

“After a while you may want to respond to every request for a take on the day’s newest racist incident with nothing but a list of corresponding, pre-drafted truths, like a call-center script for talking to bigots. Having written thousands of words about white people who have slurred the president over the past six years, you begin to feel as if the only appropriate way to respond to new cases—the only way you can do it without losing your mind—is with a single line of text reading, “Black people are normal people deserving of the same respect afforded to anyone else, but they often aren’t given that respect due to the machinations of white supremacy.””

Cord Jefferson, The Racism Beat

“…what’s very interesting about millennials is that you can’t scare them into behavior. They actually really respect transparency, and a marketer who tries to use fear to engage this audience will probably be disappointed. … The young adult audience is impressed by honesty and transparency.”

“In 2010, he wrote a blog post for TechCrunch entitled, “Silicon Valley: You and Some of Your VCs have a Gender Problem.” He says he received a great deal of negative feedback from men in Silicon Valley who said he was making a problem where they didn’t see one. The more he wrote, the more pushed back he felt. When it was time to write a book on women in technology, he knew he needed women’s voices. When he discussed the project with his wife, Tavinder, she suggested reaching out to the very women he was trying to help.”

Visual Communication first project: combining two contrasting objects together. I made a mini series based on the theme ‘Adulthood vs Childhood’. or maybe I should call it “clash of different intoxicating things ” I love this multi-themed creation.
