These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

-Chris Orbach: Jane

I could be condemned to hell for every sin but littering."

- Soul Coughing: Idiot Kings

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Just making my sentiments known. I don't know a single NYC resident who thinks this is a *good* idea.

(just to make this clear-- this graphic is a satirization of the Official NYC Olympic Bid graphic, which has been plastered *on every single bus and subway car* for MONTHS now. I designed the changes, and graphics credit goes to Mikey.)

NYC is just *not* designed for this, and anything of this magnitude will turn this city into a police state.

That should keep them happy.

I just want to be able to go down and watch the boy-from-next-door win a gold medal.
