I ran into an awesome human last night whom i had not seen in a long time. Ryder Ripps, a brilliant human and artist clued me in on his newest project: Internet Archaeology.
According to the mission statement:
Internet Archaeology seeks to explore, recover, archive and showcase the graphic artifacts found within earlier Internet Culture. Established in 2009, the chief purpose of Internet Archaeology is to preserve these artifacts and acknowledge their importance in understanding the beginnings and birth of an Internet Culture. We focus on graphic artifacts only, with the belief that images are most culturally revealing and immediate. Most of the files in our archive are in either JPG or GIF format and are categorized by either still or moving image, they are then arranged in various thematic subcategories. Currently, a major focus of Internet Archaeology is on the archiving and indexing of images found on Geocities websites, as their existence has been threatened by parent company Yahoo; who plans to discontinue the service by October 26, 2009. Internet Archaeology is an ongoing effort which puts preservation paramount. Unlike traditional archaeology, where physical artifacts are unearthed; Internet Archaeology's artifacts are digital, thus more temporal and transient. Yet we believe that these artifacts are no less important than say the cave paintings of Lascaux. They reveal the origins of a now ubiquitous Internet Culture; showing where we have been and how far we have come. Internet Archaeology was founded by Ryder Ripps, who currently acts as the curator at large.

I am so gratefully happy that Ryder has decided to take on this huge and necessary project. We take advantage of the fact that the internet is so fast and evolutionary. We forget that the internet was created by humans and I for one, would hope that the things that i have posted, created, and discovered from the internet were not forgotten..i am thinking of doing an archaeological dig of my own internet history. Thanks Ryder and i look forward to seeing the future of the history!

i just had a really good talk with my wonderful friends kathy and sarvia. During this talk we discovered our mutual obsession with mediocrity..but that the act of of being obsessed with it somehow makes us not a part of mediocrity. I love watching you tube videos of peoples cats sleeping and of babies sucking on lemons...but i would hate to be these cats or babies. on another note:
im using these magazines as inspirations for my lil one.
im baaaaack

thank you werner

the main thing that made life ok for me this past month was a book

Herzog on Herzog

and although i have read it before i have found new and profound meanings in herzogs idealogies.

never before have i realized what a waste of human i was. heres to the future...

my computer is broken and i have no apostrophe or semi colon...just fyi

it has been quite a long while

i have been working so hard hoisting the flag of the slave ship. It has been a pretty intense and insane 2 weeks. i am definitely positively of the factual persuasion when i say that i have never been so tired or exhausted in all my 25 years. Never again do i want to work that much ever. ever. 18 hours a day..sewing, dyeing fabrics, hoisting rolls of pleated satin viscose, vomiting every once in a while from using markers (yes markers) to color a trim for a garment...insanity and absurdity. While i think i actually felt how it feels to die yesterday...i managed to live through it and i guess i am surprised?
i thought i might die. this sounds silly but im not being comical...the day before the show i passed out from exhaustion and had to revive myself by sticking my head out of the window of the 8th floor of our sample room..and then i lay my whole body (beddy bye styles) out on a stoop for an hour contemplating hospitalization.

This all sounds horrible but the fashion world is just such. I love everyone that i work with at marc but the main thing that i have been thinking about this whole season is the fact that i am interested in things that are more revolutionary.

This is what i have been thinking about the last month..and more of course.
now back to reality and friends and love and life and culture.
im ready.
gimme some sugar cause im baking some smart cookies!
