So I’m trying out flickr to share London pictures with those who don’t have facebook…

It’s still kind of scary.

OK, trying the slideshow out, so bear with me now.

Anyway, I never thought I would do that “buy before you fly” stuff, but I decided to invest in a point-and-shoot. It paid off, I think. I’m definitely glad to have gotten to see Sungyon. It was also like 50 euros cheaper at the airport with the coupon from my ticket than the camera store in Delft. I hope I didn’t look too suspicious unwrapping parts and throwing the box away at the airport moments after purchase.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

I have a nerd crush on my hand drawing teacher, Koos Eissen. He has a book coming out on sketching for product designers. I took a picture this morning during class because while he has always drawn rather well on the chalkboard, I started geeking out when he was teaching us rounded surfaces.

Below includes my hairdryer assignment that I muddled with my lack of knowledge on how to apply color (I know more now). Our assignment for next week is a hand-held vacuum cleaner.

1) New graffiti on the way to the city center. I may start paying more attention to the walls to see how often it changes.
2) Henri, Yoshi, and I took the scenic route to Burger King today, that is by the highway. The area was surrounded by a canal, so we had to lift a gate to get on to the exit ramp with our bikes. The inside was decked out more than any real Burger King would be too.
3) Robin and I checked out a pool hall that was down the street from Poptahof. Felt a little like a hotel lounge, and it almost played some decent music.



Hooray for NYT

The New York Times has a nifty interactive video of the debate.  Not only does it have a transcript, it also has a fact checker in another tab!

After having watched the debate, I can see why people have their doubts about Obama having empty promises and about his military inexperience.  However I am not convinced on McCain, and I have to say I really dislike his campaign tactics.

But I am very curious to see how the VP debate goes.  Mostly because I haven’t heard much on Biden.  Palin is still a joke, though.  While I think a lot of social liberties shouldn’t be decided by the government, I can’t support someone going into office who is pro-life, anti-gay rights, and who made women pay for their rape kits.  If she were not charming and were not a woman, would she even be in the running as a candidate due to her inexperience?  At least Obama forms intelligent responses and picked a VP candidate that makes sense.



What is healthy?

So for class I need to figure out what people think healthy is and how (or whether) they try to keep healthy.  In attempts to get an “international” answer, I’m posting the questionnaire here…

Thank you, France 24, for having a live broadcast of the American debates.

[edit] … But it’s a shame I passed out for most of it anyway.
