Bob Dylan was awarded the highest civilian honor by the present today.
"I have to say that I am a really big fan," Obama said as he introduced Dylan, one of a number of figures from the struggles and accomplishments of the 1960s, as well as other eras, whom Obama chose to honor Tuesday. Labor leader and civil rights campaigner Dolores Huerta and astronaut John Glenn also received the medal.
Today, in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Apple’s design chief, Jonathan Ive, was Knighted. To me, this is more than a ceremony for one man. This is a celebration of design.
Granted, this is an outdated, overly-dramatic ceremony for this day and age, but nonetheless, this is a celebration of great design. Ive and his team have put phenomenal products into the world for sometime now. He and his team have been recognized before, but now, it has the blessing of royalty.
I think design, especially from Apple, an entity in which most everyone owns at least one product, has increased the overall level of taste worldwide. Good design, has a lasting, worldwide impact.
Tonight, my favorite show on television ended. House made it’s debut on Fox in the fall of 2004. My family and I began watching the show on a weekly basis beginning in 2005. It has been a staple in our house ever since. I grew up with the show, and I will miss it.
The show came to a concise and appropriate end. In fact, it was the kind of ending that any show on television might hope for– tying everything together, leaving you wanting more, and taking a bow while still on top.
Just like one of those Phoenix things you hear about on the news, Day & Age has risen from the ashes. Over the last few months, I simply did not have the time to invest in this site, which lead me to totally rethink the site’s focus.
So, instead of me trying to post something everyday, I will be posting tidbits as I find them, and longer-form content as I create it. Previously, I felt that my attempt to bring content to the site everyday made the quality of the content suffer.
In short, I will be playing this by ear, and posts will come along as I have time to create them. What will I post about you ask? Well, to be perfectly honest, whatever catches my eye.
