Carousel — Week Ending 2nd October 2009

My friend is studying Historical Design at The New York School of Interior Design & she has started a blog to “digitally complement” her education. It is here. I am learning things just from reading it, especially posts like this!

I just discovered Makeup & Beauty Blog, & it is rad. Check out 18 MAC to School Makeup Tips!

Why I am not afraid to take your money by Amanda Palmer.

“listen. artists need to make money to eat and to continue to make art. artists used to rely on middlemen to collect their money on their behalf, thereby rendering themselves innocent of cash-handling in the public eye. artists will now be coming straight to you (yes YOU, you who want their music, their films, their books) for their paychecks.”

Felt 3, hello! (November 17th! Yes, we’re waiting!)

Why Humans Have Sex. Some of my favourite reasons: “I was curious about my sexual abilities”, “I wanted to burn calories”, “The person was famous & I wanted to be able to say I had sex with him/her”, “Someone dared me” & “It was an initiation rite to a club or organisation”. Fascinating (pronounced “fas-kin-ating”!).
