Bones sinking like stones, all of us are done for.
A trip down memory lane for me today as I returned to St. Jerome’s once again for the SJ Carnival. I was a little disappointed that the annual football game was scrapped to due a lack of faculty/staff/alumni attendance. But I did get some fun ball hockey in. Being back at SJU reminded me of the above song. Dave and I played it at many coffeehouses over our 4 years as students.
As I have been there all day, and the Super Bowl is tonight, this will be a short post.
When I was chatting with Emily during the last podcast I was chatting off-air with her about my connection to the world of design. I came to appreciate the work of designers through an interest in sports uniforms. I will probably do a larger post about some of my favourites in the future, but for the moment I want to mention a blog that I have followed for over a year. Uniwatch is the place to find information about uniforms and logos, from the past, present, and future. Anything I know about graphic design probably comes from reading posts and comments on that blog. The site founder Paul Lukas has parlayed a love of sports aesthetics and his writing career into a job with ESPN as their uniform guru. If you like sports I’d recommend poking around a bit to see if you like the jersey as much as the action.
Just a reminder that the deadline for the Poetry Contest is nearly upon us. I will be accepting late entries this week as I am a generous guy. Details are here.
