Time out.

June 9, 2009

I know this has nothing to do with design at all, but honestly, if you are going to complain about this video then there is something seriously wrong with you.

Sporting a preppy blond ‘do, white hightops and acid-washed jeans and toting his huge cell phone, it was Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell who showed up to promote his alter ego Mark-Paul’s TNT show, Raising the Bar—often by addressing the camera directly like a certain Bayside student we used to know and love.

“I had to change my name to Mark-Paul Gosselaar because there was already a Zack Morris in SAG,” Zack explained to Fallon, who strove to find out more about his guest’s summer working at the Malibu Sands and his ill-fated marriage to Kelly Kapowski.

Then the actor committed to a class reununion (as did Jessie, via big, huge cell phone) and joined house band the Roots for a rendition of the Zack Attack classic “Friends Forever.”

More Ikea catalogs than Bibles

September 26, 2008

As per one Apartment Therapy reader, there are more Ikea catalogs out there than Bibles:

“According to Carnegie Melon[sic], only one book has been distributed in more copies than the Bible — the Ikea catalog.”

Christiandom < inexpensive Swedish Furniture?
Jesus < the Poang chair?

Let’s get this thing started already

Lauren told me to write a snarky welcome intro post. I really wish she would have just told me what to say. But she didn’t, so instead, I will say WELCOME FRIENDS, to San Frooklyn, a blog about pretty things and the cities that house them. Ok, that’s not entirely true. It’s not always about pretty things – it’s also about important things, new things, funny things, stupid things, and basically whatever we deem worthy of you reading. We’re like your internet filter…gleaning all the goodies so you don’t have to.

Things are still looking a little rocky…that’s what happens when a bunch of perfectionists try to make some graphics. It’s destined to take a while. Fear not though! The header will get spruced up, our posts will become more coherent, and reoccuring sections will develop. So far we’re planning on “That’s So Fresh!” (a mocking highlight of something that someone clearly thought was a groundbreaking idea, but in reality is just stupid), “That’s Sustainable!” (transforming a reality-tv dream of mine and Emily Wolf into a blog posting), and “I’d Hit That…” (spotlight on people in the design world who are doing something right).

And since I know Emily will actually read this blog (bless you for it), this first post is for you. You did introduce me to Natalie Dee, afterall.
