These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.



And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Oh where do I begin....

Well really, I have only 3 comments.

1. Whoever chose that photo to go next to *my* name is today's Agent of Irony. Further, I think there were much more powerful photos they could have taken.

2. I don't know what an "online friend" is, but I know I don't pull 18 hour days for them. That's gonna rub me the wrong way all day.


3. The woman who wrote the story was *very* nice, and was under serious space constraints from her editor, so a lot of what I told her didn't get anywhere near this article, including the **mad** pimpage for the following things:

1. MBUK
2. Jan.
3. Alfie himself.
4. Everyone else on the WNA team.
5. bronxelf.com
6. al4ie.com
7. Mat.
8. Hotdog, for forwarding the Adam Stacey photo to Skynews.
9. Daz, for translating anything I didnt understand in German.



Story to be found here.

It's not a waste. It's not about me. It's about the site. The site got plugged and that's the point. The only part that *REALLY* (and it does) bother me is the phrase "online friend".

Uh....
BWAhahahahaha!!!
That picture + Your name = Cant. Stop. Laughing.

Drawbacks you already pointed out aside, I think it is a nice little promo piece.

Oh the irony. I hurt myself snarfing my morning caffeine.

Glad the site got some good promo. I hope lots of people see it.

This article is a lot nicer than the carping the NY Times did in their arts section...

Hi Pickle,

If you sent it to us via the website, it'll be a little bit before we see it. We're um... A little backlogged at werenotafraid central. :)

Thank you for sending it though :D
