Magazine covers, movie posters, and book covers all have the same basic job, so it seemed proper to group these lists together: 50
You know you love design when these lists are of interest. I agree that the Salinger movie poster is completely brilliant even though the movie is not suppose to be. You know the old saying, "You can't judge a movie by its cover..."

This accent quiz is entertaining to share with family members, especially if you've moved a few times. One of my children landed on an "Overland Park, Kansas" accent given we lived there during his formative years. It was a melting pot with people in the early 90s moving to OP from all over the country. I was raised in Akron, Ohio but my accent appears to be most like the people in Phoenix, Arizona where I now reside. This is my second stop in Phoenix-- another highly transient area. The map shows other areas that have influenced my word choice--Cleveland, Ohio and the heartland. I have the least in common with New Yorkers and those from Boston. Have fun!

I have a house and, like most houses, it's an unfinished work. There are cracks in the paint. There are piles of old clothes and shoes exploding out of the laundry room, which doubles as a storage room because we don't have a storage room.
The cursing may bother you but otherwise hysterical!
After presenting the collaboration curve, Dan is the question How should we collaborate? and responds with the principle CARE.

Your breath is alive with the promise of flowers.
Each time you blow a kiss to the world, you spread pollen that might grow to be a new plant.
That’s precisely the kind of cosmic awe environmental writer Elin Kelsey and Toronto-based Korean artist Soyeon Kim seek to inspire in kids in You Are Stardust (public library) — an exquisite picture-book that instills that profound sense of connection with the natural world. Underpinning the narrative is a bold sense of optimism — a refreshing antidote to the fear-appeal strategy plaguing most environmental messages today.

Research tells us that what we wear affects how we think.
This research suggests that the clothing we wear influences our creative capacities as well as how others perceive and interact with us. Putting on a white lab coat or a suit has benefits beyond the ease of knowing what to wear each day. When it comes to the educational environments, this research should be a consideration in terms of school uniforms or dress codes. And for the creative souls, dressing with purpose to tap their inner muse is not at all a silly endeavor.

As 2013 quickly comes to a close I wanted to take a look back at the most feel good moments of the year, the stories that brought happy tears to my eyes and left me with a smile on my face.

Via a shared screen, I can see Jan Somers’ nose to nose photo archive as he scrolls through close-up after close-up of two people with their faces turned towards each other, so near they would feel one another’s breath, noses just a wisp apart.
"Belgian photographer Jan Somers has captured more than 100 images of people in India". He is pressing for a global, amateur photography movement where nose to nose pics are used to overcome issues of personal space and to create new connections; it captures the heart and might just evoke peace...
