Today, after getting out of work, I took a moment to just stand outside and relax.
I watched a young boy walk by in a fedora. This kid was about, oh, I'd say 11 or 12.
The only thing I have to say on the matter is this: The fedora is unacceptable to wear unless you can pull it off, and chances are, you can't.
How do you feel about it?

Origami - an ancient art form. Beautiful, clean, elaborate.
No matter how you describe it, one thing is certain - it takes skill. Skill that people spend years perfecting, and skills that most people never quite attain.
I'm not here to preach about the skills origami requires, however. I'm here to simply show you what I found while browsing the web this morning. The above origami piece truly defines an "innovative motion." It brings together an ancient art form with a modern-day marvel. The word "Awesome" doesn't do it justice.

Art, specifically furniture, has advanced over the past 50 years. Greatly. However, there seems to be a sentiment in the US that makes us want to go back to those retro 1950s chairs that lets face it, aren't very comfortable. However, when someone chooses new furniture they have to make a decision. What is more important: Style or comfort?
From where I stand, I think most modern furniture is ugly. 1950s ideas in furniture were prime, and that's why they still stand.
It's a choice you have to make with a lot of things, to be honest. In my opinion, style is more important to an extent. There are circumstances where comfort does take priority, and I guess it is just a matter of individual situations.

Today at a friends house I came upon not only a brilliant idea, but an equally brilliant product.
The Toddy Cold Brew System eliminates all need for those old glass jars with teabags in the fridge overnight- this system truly defines an innovative idea. And you can't go wrong for the simple price of just over $35. Looks clean, and works like a charm.
So go check them out at http://toddycafe.com.. It's worth it.
