75: One year
This week’s poem: One year
A beat for prayer, a beat for lives
A beat for thoughts, a beat for lies
A beat for faith, a beat for tears
A beat for joy, a beat for years
We keep beating, as we keep being beat.
What did I find interesting this week?
★ TV has a problem with black womanhood, even with Issa Rae.
★ ‘The men in this town have a serious case of pussy affluenza”. Tinder and the dawn of the dating apocalypse.
★ Along with a series of the cutest GIFs, here’s a guide to designing for wearable devices.
What’s coming up?
★ Cher and I moved our podcast, Open Ended, into a weekly format! This coming Wednesday will be the two of us talking about anxieties, therapy, and mental health. You can check out last week’s episode, ‘V.I.P**n’, on our website, iTunes, or in any other podcast player. Be sure to rate us on iTunes and send us a donation to keep our lights on.
★ This is the last week to see the CHGO DSGN: WHEREVER show at LVL3 in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood until it closes on August 16th. I’m showing a piece with a bunch of other talented folks.
