So…i was on design observer as usual and after reading a great article on fat and obesity, I read this great response in the comments area. Its written by Brad Gutting and its brilliant:
‘I think of the biggest challenges about taking on obesity is getting to the core of the problem–what people put in their mouths, and as it relates to the epidemic, what they’re told to put there. Most serious fitness people recognize the huge flaws in what doctors and the US government advises you eat, but it’s tough to convince your average person to ignore the orders of educated doctors and not eat wheat, pasta, too much fruit, and so on.

syncopating detroit? this is a very interesting idea…not to mention a very interesting take on what’s going on with and in detroit currently. even though i have moved away to the luring flashing lights and constant happenings of nyc, i’ll always be a detroiter. i still like to stay current with what’s happening and the myriad plans to help the city out of its slump.
one of my fave design blogs, design observer, has been posting quite a bit on ‘the D’. Here’s the latest, its an interesting read for anyone irregardless of any prior interest in the city or urban planning. just read it! lol!

Sooo, I’m at a starbucks waiting for my BF to get here (I’m in soho) so we can go eat and drink at Savoy. Anywho, I’ve not seen more stylish coffee feins before! Especially the group of four rocking an uncontrived “intellectual” style. Does that sound like an oxymoron? Well it’s true their style is totally unpretentious. I really want one of the ladies’ shoes. She’s got a sweet pair of black brogues. The other woman has a fab scarf and a quirky sweater that I couldn’t pull off but looks great on her. The men of the group look amazing as well. Very sartorial style for each of them.

So I was over on Design Observer and read an article by Michael Beirut. Its about photog Francois Robert who spent a year photographing human bones. The work is striking and beautiful. I took from it a message of humans being the cause of their own destruction. Go read the article or just view the images here.
What do you think of his work?
