Feb 18 – Decisions, Decisions…

  • Hits: 279

By Shameem Guilliano

I watched an interesting film about our decisions and how they can affect our lives recently. The film was Mr. Nobody if you want to check it out. Anyway, it made me reflect on life and got me thinking about the small things that could have happened, or not happened, that could have made everything vastly different now. A great example of this is the night I met the guy I’m seeing. We met on a Friday night and his friend had offered me and my friend a drink the bartender had gotten wrong. My friend took the drink and I heard a humorous attempt at reassurance coming from behind me – “it’s not spiked, eh” - and there he was. So, let’s break this down:

Feb 16 - (Never) Judge a Book by its Cover

  • Hits: 282

By Stefano Blanca Sciacaluga

I love pictures. I love them so much I make them, look at them, go crazy over them and can’t get enough of sharing them with people. It’s probably the oldest form of communication if you consider most people didn’t really know how to read until fairly recently. Pictures make everything easier; in fact, there are people who refuse to read books if there are no pictures. And that makes total sense to me. I mean, I read books without pictures and I sometimes even read them more than once! In a book I recently re-re-re-read, full of life tips there was one that, as a “picture-maker”, stuck with me. It was something along the lines of “pick things you like looking at and look at them”. We all work with visuals, we choose colours we like and make them our favourites, choose things and people that just look good and stop talking when the person on the other side of the table is yawning. Visual cues are a better communicator than anything. Even typographers, whose obsession is lettering, work with the way the lettering looks to convey the message.

Jan 16 - "Do You Like It?"

You've probably all heard this before. And you've probably never thought much about it. If there ever was a combination of four words that made someone sound doubtful of what they've done it's "do you like it".

Jan 30 - Forty Years Of Curse

  • Hits: 274

By Stefano Blanca Sciacaluga

This time last week I was putting in my last few hours of the week in the office, excited for the jam-packed weekend ahead. I had a friend’s birthday dinner and night out planned for the evening, the Gib Talks event in the morning and a relaxed Sunday with Leslie Knope and the rest of the gang at Pawnee, Indiana’s Parks and Recreation department. After a week of work nothing seemed more appealing; I was ready to take on the weekend with courage. I wish I had known how I feel about it now, then. I had a particularly heavy night, an alarm for half-eight in the morning on the Saturday, met up with my writing buddies Mike and Shameem (the same one from here) and somehow managed to make it to the John Mackintosh Hall without collapsing. I was dying. But I was determined to have a great weekend and part of that was watching every talk at the Gib Talks event, of course with preference to some over others. Long story short the event was a success, everybody loved it and I was convinced (and still am) that the half-eight in the morning alarm was the way to go. Good job!
