Ever want to see really cool people in their elements?  Well now you can at The Selby.  My sister sent me this site a few days ago and I haven’t stopped looking at it. It’s a collection of photographs of creative personalities shot by Todd Selby.  He’s amazing with the camera and manages to capture these designers and artists in their homes and studios in a very evocative way, as if you’re there sharing the experience.  He’s even shot the “party photo king” aka The Cobrasnake.  It’s just an amazing site, check it out.  More of my favorites after the fold.

Sorry for not posting lately, I have been swamped with moving in to my dorm.  I promise more frequent updates now that I have done most of the move in work.  This post may be redundant to some, but I’ve heard from enough people that they don’t know about the function of “reading the rest of the entry” to warrant this post.  Whenever I say “after the fold,” I mean to click through to the full post.  Most of the time, I abridge the post’s appearance on the front page and reserve extra details for the click-through.  So, if you haven’t yet, I would suggest clicking through on the posts that interest you!

Stair Porn

Who knew stairs could be so pornographic?

Who knew stairs could be so pornographic?

I came across this site and thought the idea was awesome and well executed.  It is a website dedicated to stairs, and only stairs.  Stairporn.org is a TypePad powered blog that exhibits the design side of stairs (not your average, boring, handrailed steps).  It’s quite therapeutic to browse through the posts and aside from its namesake, there is nothing about this website that’s not safe for work.  More of my favorite stairs after the fold.

Apologies for not updating regularly. From now on, I will endeavor to update as daily as possible (and once I get into a rhythm, the posts will pop up at around the same time). That being said, I would love to hear specific input from you readers about what content you like, what you think is mediocre and bad, etc. I would like this blog to be interactive rather than simply me posting things that I arbitrarily think are cool, so please, tell me what you’d like to see in the future, or even submit ideas to me about future posts. Many thanks.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

Genius.

Genius. Click the picture to watch.

Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, released a 3 part series on the net called “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” starring Neil Patrick Harris.  It was an instant hit, and if you haven’t heard about it yet, go watch it immediately.  Harris plays an aspiring supervillain who falls in love with a girl, but vies for her affection with the city’s superhero.  The rest is history–and brilliance.  Shortly after it was fully released, it became exclusive to iTunes (for $4), but it is now available for viewing on Hulu for free (with brief advertisements).  You can watch it here.  If you do one thing with your free time today, it should be watching this.

One of my recent favorites

If you haven’t seen this website yet, it’s pretty rad.  The basic premise is simple: people post pictures of their outfits and can comment on or “hype” others’.  I was thinking about starting a similar website, and then BAM… ran across this site.  It started in March, so it’s only a few months old, but it’s got a dedicated and fast-growing community and a lot of people with style (greater amount of people without style, but that’s of no concern).  It’s not all girls too, there are some guys, but the male style is rather… well let’s just say it’s a self-selecting pool of males for a website like this.  Great place to find inspiration or judge people, your choice.  It’s invite only right now but if you leave a comment wth your email address, I’ll shoot you one (and then delete your email address from the comment afterwards).  Check it out.
