New Gossip Cover

I saw this on umm....ONTD. It is the cover of the upcoming album by the Gossip. I don't know why, but I just really love it.

oh, Pandora

So this year, I decided to give pandora another chance. When it first came out years ago, I tried it and it was terrible. It would kick you off for being on it for too long and once, I had a Belle & Sebastian station and it played this, which is actually my least favorite song in the world.

It still has problems, but it is soooo much better (even if it tried to place the Beatles in my twee station. But check this shit out:

Yeah, Pandora. That is not the right cover art.

something troubling me

In my typography class, we were each assigned a typeface and instructed to make a huge as poster (I am actually "working" on my poster for Gil Sans right now). One of my classmates got the typeface gridnik, which was designed by this Dutchman, Wim Crouwel. The poster had this amazing quote that I can't get out of my head, "I am functionalist troubled by aesthetics." That feeling pretty much summed up how I feel about lots of things, especially design. Of course, it was a Dutchman, who expressed the senitment the best.
