Cheryl Strayed rocks

What do you do with the rocks you once gave your dead mother?

May 4th, 2015 Oodlies 1 min read

Cheryl Strayed: What do you do with the rocks you once gave your dead mother? Where is their rightful place? To whom do they belong? To what are you obligated? Memory? Practicality? Reason? Faith? Do you put them back in the jar and take them with you across the wild and unkempt sorrow of your twenties or do you simply carry them outside and dump…

The two angles of Justin Zajac

4 years ago I befriended a boy on twitter @nzjayzee He made the most beautiful food I insisted he took photos in not just one but two angles That even became a hashtag ‪#‎twoangles‬ in a way that no one cared or knew what we meant But this was of no importance to us, of course I don’t know where he is now. This post…

And then there was Mirjam Spronk The goat herding designer I stalked for a year At first because who leaves a name like Spronk alone and then who leaves someone with a great mind in their heart alone One day I drew her parents having sex at a carnival (how she came to be) but forgot her mum was my Facebook friend. @mbspronk on Instagram….

It always helps when a thing looks comical

I overheard a very shy girl say “you can’t post nudes on Pinterest not even if it’s a Rennaisance painting” (they took down one of her posts) So I posted this on Pinterest with care and modesty Also it always helps when a thing looks like it belongs to meaning that is also comical (un)fortunately. This post is part of #The100DayProject Day 25/100.

Complete your art experience with food and drink

I’ve swapped projects with Fireball Roberts for a day. Her project for a 100 days is #100daysofcutandpaste (collage). Tomorrow, she will stalk someone and draw them, which is my project for a 100 days. She’s a stranger, the way everyone on instagram is. I liked her work and suggested a swap, so we could explore not being very good at art and what that brings. My…

The internet is for porn

Geeks can probably find more porn than non-geeks

Joi: I knew I’d suffer the day you sent me a linkedIN invite. Do you think geeks watch more porn or less porn than non geeks? Craig Stewart: Um, I think that geeks can probably find more porn than non-geeks, however they would be probably more inclined to watch something like Hentai rather than any real people. Funny isn’t it, some people can only just…

Sometimes you’re angry you think bad thoughts (and then you wonder if they’re really bad or just amusing) other times you feel, like you could actually murder someone (if it were the norm, of course) Thankfully we’ve all got that friend who comes along and tickles our noses making us sneeze a laugh An expert nose tickler I’ve known, since I was 6 also has a terrific…

David Cain History

All of these people were someone, and all of this was today

Apr 25th, 2015 Oodlies 1 min read

David Cain: In high school I had an eccentric history teacher. He was very cordial and well-spoken, but had a burning pet peeve. He could lose his temper when students called people of the past boring or stupid. One time in class someone said the Russian Revolution was “super boring”, and this set our teacher off perfectly. For a few moments he just stood there,…
