Six contact hours my first week back, you guys. Hypothetically living the Ultimate Existence (TM pending), except for the part where I’ll will be sans sleep and doing a mad dash to get shit done every hour of every day. Hate yew, micromanagement.
Six contact hours? That’s a whole arts degree! Har har, Faculty of Design contact hours, lol lol.
The Printing Office is a project by the 2010 final year students of the graphic design department at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. They produced twenty-three publications on the peculiarities of printing & publishing; essentially the focus of my honours thesis this year.
You can view these titles online, download them as PDFs, and/or download a selection as a combined PDF. These student publications are a highly recommended read for both designers and those interested in the print medium.
“The first CB club in Australia was the Charlie Brown Touring Car Club (CBTCC), which formed in Morwell, Victoria in 1967 and consisted of members who were mainly four-wheel drive enthusiasts. The club used the prefix GL (for Gippsland) due to the fact that “CB” could not be used. After July 1, 1977, the club changed its name to Citizens Band Two Way Communication Club (CBTCC). Other early clubs were the LV (Latrobe Valley) and the WB named after Wayne Britain. Members of these clubs are still about and have also become amateur radio operators.”—
Their portal pictures got impressive just in time for their revenue base to collapse completely, while they still had insane debts like the repairs to the Menzies building for the third fucking time in five years. Shit monash, get it together son!
This. Also, the fucking Menzies. Do not start me on this Modernist death trap unless you have some time on your hands.
A late-breaking update to this story, fresh from the Arts & Life night desk.
Yes, yes; James Franco—excellent.
I am reblogging this mainly to settle an argument with my father. While helping me move last Monday, we discussed the etymology of the prefix Hadji- in Greek surnames (Hadjiioannou, Hadjistefanis, Hatzidakis, etc.). Because we’re Cypidiots.
I was all “dad, bro, it’s Arabic in origin and in that context means a family member has gone on a pilgrimage. Hajj is Arabic for pilgrimage, usually reffering to the pilgrimage to Mecca”. My dad was all “I THINK YOU WILL FIND IT MEANS THAT A FAMILY MEMBER HAS MADE A PILGRIMAGE TO JERUSALEM BEEN BAPTISED IN THE RIVER JORDAN”. I was all “I think it mainly means that they’ve been to Jerusalem, dad, if that. It means pilgrimage.”
The term is also used in Christian countries that were once under Ottoman occupation for a Christian who had traveled to Jerusalem and the Holy Lands.
In Cyprus, where for centuries Christians and Muslims intermixed freely and Jerusalem is conveniently local, the title became so prevalent as to be permanently integrated into some Greek Christian family names, such as Hajiioannou, regardless of any lack of qualification [sic].
I hope you’re talking about the film itself and not the chest hair. The film is most likely fake (I hope) but I don’t think I can deal with that chest hair not being a reality. It’s like a goatskin rug liquid nailed to his skin.
Bosisto's is the GREATEST. where are you now?! you move so much!
Daaaaaamn, I need to get back there.
I’m in Brunswick West at the moment staying in my friend’s spare room, while looking for places to move into for forever (or, more than three months). I’ve been nomadic since November and it’s the best/worst/best.
