Does anyone have any ideas about what other food products I could use for my project? Something you can find in a grocery store, like a brand name packaged/canned product?

Love the idea for this series!

Here are some foods I would like to see properly shamed - potato chips or Cheetos; soda, any brand or flavor; an artificial cheese like Velveeta or sliced American cheese; generic donuts, muffins or cakes; and frozen breakfast products like eggo waffles, pancakes, or sausage breakfast sandwiches.

“When I was in architecture school, I was one of those guys that loved architectural history because it let me understand why we do things … All cultures have been limited by technology and material availability, and all we see is the end product, not knowing the whys and where fores. It gave me a chance to kind of crawl into the head of someone who would have had a different palette to work with.”

-Architect Burt Taggart, Sr.

Okay, the architecture of this home is gorgeous. Very Brunelleschi/Italian, and very well done. The furniture and interior decorating, I am not so taken by. But, that is very much a personal thing, so…

I enjoy watching Shakespeare plays and training for half-marathons. I can talk for hours about physics, architecture, Roman history, or Monty Python. My best subjects in high school (10 years ago. Yes, I’m old) were Calculus and European History. Pursuing painting, photography, historic preservation, and soccer used to be my ambitions.

I can’t figure out what I want to do with my life.

LIFE PLANS: Part 1

It’s January, and everyone is doing it. But really, I have recently been thinking about my options in terms of careers, and what might make me happy. My objectives:

I like cities. They are full of activity, art, music, and stuff. It feels like it will be hard for me to move away from where I am, because of how long it took to get to know this place. But, I have recently felt that my current bonds to this specific city might not be as strong as I thought.

I like being close to family, but not too close. Easy travel distance is nice. It keeps me feeling connected and as “in the know” as I can be without being in the middle of things. However, I don’t want to be too close, where I feel the (and I hate this phrase) “apron strings” pulling me into things I don’t want to do.

I want to move up. Right now, my field is relatively unexplored. While I have attempted some trail blazing, I know that it is not a fast process, and I am reliant upon others to hold up their end of things, and that is seldom the case since what I do is not, nor should it be, their priority.

I want to slow down and know where I am going. What is in front of me is uncharted. And, I don’t see how it will get me to my personal endgame. I want to use my knowledge of art, architecture, communications, outreach, and community building to make a difference in a place that nobody thought mattered. But I have to build credibility, and I need structure and mentoring that is not currently available to me.

I want to cause trouble. I want to be the Donald Judd to someplace’s Marfa. I want to spark momentum for a renaissance or revolution in a city or town in need of it. So many places can be re-ignited, but no matter where i go, it will be a fight. I am ready for a fight.
