What Drives Good Design? Breast Pumps, Oxygen Tanks and More

Thursday, March 27th, 2014

Debbie says: Courtney E. Martin and John Cary have some things to say about breast pump design. The pump is a symbol of the modern work-life conundrum. In theory, women have the freedom to honor the wisdom that “breast is best,” while still pursuing their own careers. And yet, to do so, they’re forced to […]

“Groin Gazing”: Taboos, Penises, and “Fashion” Photography (NSFW)

Sunday, March 23rd, 2014

Laurie and Debbie say: Photographer Claire Milbrath did a fashion photography shoot for Vice (a print and online magazine) called “Groin Gazing,” in which casual clothes are (apparently) being sold to men (sexual orientation unknown) by means of torso and groin shots, showing (apparently) erect penises under the clothes on offer. Tracy Moore at Jezebel […]

Links This Week

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Debbie says: This is only the beginning of a wonderful comic from Gallery of Dangerous Women … Cuteosphere, the cartoonist, says: it always disappointed me that Monster Girls are an anime porn thing rather than something used to explore the way society and the media dehumanises women, but oh well shout out to all my […]

Stunning Industrial Photography: Ethan Miller

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Laurie says: Fine industrial photography always impresses me.

It’s not a subject matter that crops up a often in my work. But when I was in Iceland I had […]

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Debbie says: I don’t know when I’ve been as excited by a new concept as I have by this one (okay, I was just as excited by the article from last week’s links about Arunachalam Muruganantham), but this is very different and equally important. … in the small town of Weesp, in Holland—that bastion of […]

Before and After Acceptance

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Lynne Murray says: This year’s Academy Award ceremonies showed a major Joseph Campbell influence, complete with a video clip celebrating cinema heroes and how greatly we value their journeys. No one at the Oscars would say this, of course, but the superficial road to heroism, in a very Hollywood manner, intersects with the worship of […]

Long Overdue Links

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Debbie says So the site was down, and various things happened, and we’ve been posting a little less frequently than usual, and the links have been piling up like nobody’s business. I’m going to trim off some of the old ones from the list, but this will still get long … *** This will come […]

The Biggest Winner

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Debbie says: Long-time readers of this blog know that Laurie and I are big fans of Ragen Chastain at Dances with Fat. Her recent take on how The Biggest Loser is really about the money is a fine post, but the gold is in the comments, where Jennifer Hansen says: I’ve said it before: I […]
