My direction in college (like most people, I find) has never pointed in the same direction for any great length of time. It’s still pointed in the same general direction (journalism), but all the little stuff usually shuffles around.
Recently, I decided to become a ceramics minor. I really love wheel-throwing, and I feel like I’m pretty good at it. And I’ve been crazy about handbuilding stuff ever since I saw the Claudel-Rodin exhibit at the DIA several years ago. I even thought about doing my AP Art portfolio with 3D work, though I wisely realized that 2D design was a better idea at the time.
Anyway, the volume of production that I’m working at right now makes it pretty easy to justify giving stuff away, but eventually I may try to sell some of the stuff. How? TEH INTERNETZ, OF COURSE!
Yesterday, at the Guerilla Media final class meeting, someone brought up the website Etsy as a way to buy handmade stuff. For me, it was a little bit of a “duh” moment, but there were a lot of people in the room that hadn’t heard of it, so I figured I’d share it here. If you hadn’t heard of it, don’t feel bad. I’m just a dork. Also, check it out. There’s lots of really good stuff on there, though there’s probably an equal amount of stuff that should be avoided.
Norwegian Recycling is the star of today’s music again, first with a video:
The direct-download link for the song is here. My favorite part is from 2:01- 2:30 with Akon. By far. Also, LOL to Green Day.
I’m not quite as pumped about this second track, but it’s still typically high-quality stuff.
This final track is produced out of its mind, but he does it so well!
