Adventures with Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker

Life is in flux BIG TIME these days. I want to keep in touch with all of my peeps. The Internet is this beautiful thing. I can move to a brand new city and still stay in easy, near-daily contact with the people I love. When I feel connected to the people in my life that matter, I am unstoppable!

Need a Lift?

By Abby at 11:35 am on Sunday, April 13, 2008

I was feeling a little low energy yesterday (Mr. Pollen, it really is time to go) and decided to stay in. I didn’t have much on my TiVo I felt like watching, but nowadays, I don’t need TV to have something good to watch. Instead, I watched The Carolina Chocolate Drops recent concert in Amsterdam and Al Gore’s recent Ted talk about the climate crisis. A seriously uplifting evening of viewing, and it was all free, thanks to my glorious interwebz. If you’re so inclined, I offer my evening to you, next time you’re feeling uninspired and need a lift.My favorite song in the set is “Hit’m Up Style”. You can easily get to that by going straight to the direct concert page and double-clicking on Track 17. This track has this intense driving rhythm and a powerful kickass vocal. Check it out.

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a while, but this is definitely the day. As many of you know, the student body president at UNC was killed earlier this week. Two days before she died, she participated in Tony Diefel’s most recent photography project. He is the guy who did that Seeing Beyond Sight challenge that I loved so much last year at Explosure. His new project asks people to write why they do what they do on their hand and take a portrait. Here is Eve Carson’s:

Tony is very passionate about what he does. I highly recommend that you participate in the project. Here’s the basic idea:

WDYDWYD is a worldwide community-art project to answer the simple question “why do you do what you do?” by combining an image and text in a creative way.

I hope he gets a Flickr group started soon. He’ll get more responses than he knows what to do with! Think I’ll email him about that right this moment!

Now sub to his blog feed: Link
