This is fascinating. NPR’s “Planet Money” followed the production of a regular t-shirt around the world.
As an early exercise in a larger user interaction project, I coded a compliment generator in Processing. The user begins by entering his or her name. Acquiring the user-input name, the sketch then generates random adjectives and nouns using arrayed strings to define the user. The code is available here.
Above are a few examples of the complimentary definitions my friend and I received.
Note: The use of Helvetica (and really, the basis of the entire project) is inspired by the work of poet Steve Roggenbuck. If you’re interested in appreciating things for a living and/or being an overall happier person, check him out.

Great shoegaze- BOC cover.
(The question asked was “What do you say to the atheists who demand evidence or proof of the existence of a transcendent reality?”)
Just brain-dumping here, but something I am finding increasingly odd are people who self-describe as “animal lovers” and who fetishize particular animals, (usually dogs), but who also eat meat. To them, dogs = cute, chickens = sandwich filling.
I’ve seen people fill their instagram with pictures of their puppies etc., followed by a picture of their steak. Am I alone in thinking there is a strange kind of disconnect happening here?
In Ireland last week there was a story where a horse had been set on fire by some kids and this (rightly) generated a lot of outrage. People were saying things like “lost all faith in humanity”. But whereas setting a horse on fire is outrageous, force feeding an animal to the point where it cannot walk and its stomach is set to explode, is OK.
In the same week that the horse story broke, we also learned that a man had been set on fire and burned to death, but this story generated less outrage than the horse.
Alll going to plan, this will have been the last piece of red meat I ever eat. I went out for a fancy pants expensive steak last night to say farewell to beef. It was amazing, but I felt a bit obscene paying so much for it. But i’ve justified it by laying the cost against all the steaks I’ll no longer buy in future. :)
