this kills me. i see this sort of 'mistake' on this site over and over. here, the best thing going is that great blurred edge. but instead of using it to any advantage, the designer kills it off with his type.
so much potential is quandered here. finally a good photo to work with, and all the designer does is a toss with it. sad.
this is an extremely famous photo by diane arbus. if any of you are not familiar with her work, you should try and find a book about her immediately - it'll totally wig you out.
she killed herself about twenty years ago - slashed wrists in a bathtub routine. the good part is that she set a camera with a timer and photographed it. a friend of mine was the daughter of the friend who found the body. she took the film out and destroyed it.
well, we might think of them as 10 years ago, but the bands getting all the buzz right now sound like the old makers to me. the stance, the sound, the whole package. they even sell records and get written up in newsweek. what goes 'round... hell, they always reminded me of ? and the mysterions. even looked like 'em.
are you guys actually claiming some sort of 'victory' over me? was this some sort of contest? you people should clue me i omn this stuff. i thought i was talking to frank about the makers and what they were about. if this was a pissing contest, i missed it.
