Must Read/See/Hear for 5/24
I’ve been in Florida for the last several days visiting my family, so I don’t have a whole heck of a lot to say besides the fact that I’m really happy to be seeing my parents for the first time in over six months and my brother for the first time in something like ten months. I also have a very good little puppy dog that missed me a lot, too!
I’ll be back in San Diego by the end of the week — I wish I could stay with my family a bit longer, though. Not long after I get back, I will settle down in a new apartment, and on June 15th, I’ll start a new gig as a project manager. I didn’t think I could manage staying in San Diego, but it looks like San Diego can’t get rid of me just quite yet.
Well, enough about me… what should you check out this week?
I came upon an article discussing the role of hipsters in society and… wait, did I really start out a sentence like that? Believe it or not, there’s some serious discussion out there about hipsters, what they really are, what they do, and what we should think of hipsters. Live and let live, if you ask me, so I’m not one to criticize; however, this article (“What We Talk About When We Talk About Hipsters” in The L Magazine) supports hipsters, if you will, as propagators of culture. I guess.
There are some neat videos on YouTube commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Annecy Animation Festival. This one was peculiar but pretty neat — check it out:
There are more videos on the festival’s YouTube channel.
I caught a cute little advertisement for Schwinn bicycles and really loved the song they used. It’s called “Just a Dream” by AM60.
