Day 268: A Softer World

9 Mar

For today’s post, I wanted to feature an online comic that takes me by surprise every time I visit it.

“A Softer World,” by Joey Comeau and Emily Horne, takes a look at the secret minds of people in daily situations with a hipster touch. With strange photographs and cut-out word documents of phrases, it’s a piece of art every week.

I really like it because it doesn’t shy away from the dark and intense topics, but it also reignites the silly moments in life. It’s creative, it’s strangely realistic, and it’s beautiful!

Below are a couple examples from the past few weeks. But you can check out more in the archives section if you’d like. Just click the pictures to see more, and hopefully you’ll see “a softer world” we live in.

Day 21: There’s Always Someone Cooler Than You by Ben Folds

10 Jun

Hello there! If this is your first time on the website, be sure to check out the about page in the top right hand corner for more information on my project.

So, my summer vacation has officially started, but it just doesn’t feel right. Even though I’ve been back for about 3 days, my mind is still in Oregon, still attending classes, and still frantically checking Blackboard to see what my grades are.

I need a break!

Then, after I was about to give in and laze out on the couch (in the midst of sadness and bored-ness), I remembered that the best way to get me in the summer spirit is by pulling out some Ben Folds (Five).

Thank goodness for that!

So today I bring you a cute little video, made as a fun side project for a random youtuber, for one of my favorite songs “There’s Always Someone Cooler Than You” by Ben Folds. The song has a great message, and the video makes me smile. So enjoy!
