The last show at the Bobby Fischer Memorial Building? A sad departure for the renegade art scene of DC, but the show looks fascinating.

a new documentary in the works about the rise of DIY culture, something I’m completely in love with not only for its aesthetic, but because of its grassroots, participatory nature. DIY encourages people to think about the materials around them not just as scenery but as usable parts of a manipulable landscape. Live long, DIY.

the PB&J campaign

March 17, 2008

pbj.jpgAn eco-friendly diet is easier than you might think. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches – a long-time mainstay of lunchboxes across the country – reduces global warming, saves water, saves land, helps end world hunger, AND prevents animal cruelty. How, you ask? It’s vegan.

The PB&J Campaign manages to present the eco-friendly diet of veganism in an accessible, appetizing way. The site helps readers realize not only how beneficial veganism is, but also how tasty and easy it can be. I mean, who doesn’t love PB&J with a side of environmental conservation?
