interstitials

DIARY COMICS! I have a limited number of copies of my new Diary Comics collection, which debuted at TCAF and will be out through Diamond in a month or two. While they last, I’m selling them for $20 a pop, which includes a sketch, and I’ll personalize it if you ask. I’m very proud of this little book: me and Annie and Ed at Koyama worked hard to make it in a smart way, considering the nature of the strips and the way they work. It’s designed all to heck, printed beautifully, and includes a new 17-page introduction, new interstitial pages, and other stuff. I think you should buy it! 

A Good Day

A good day is when you’re out all day with your electric guitar Muse loving guy friend, spend two hours at a guitar shop messing with everything while he decides to buy a new PRS, then you go back to campus and watch the new episode of one of your favorite TV shows (Silicon Valley), joke around, listen to music, hook up a little and have a great time in general. Your phone dies while you’re away and you have no charger, and you’re kind of pissed because you want to hear from Matt and find out when you can see him next but now you can’t. 

So you come home with two borrowed electric guitars on your back at 1am and plug in your phone. Missed messages? Yep. A picture of Matt in a button down and tie with the caption ‘sorry not sorry’ and him saying that he’ll be out of work tomorrow at 5:30 and wants to hang out (he tutors at a local college as a temp job). Talk about hot for teacher. 

But, that right there. That’s a good day.

Gender is the apparatus by which the production and normalization of masculine and feminine take place along with the interstitial forms of hormonal, chromosomal, psychic, and performative that gender assumes. To assume that gender always and exclusively means the matrix of the “masculine” and “femi- nine” is precisely to miss the critical point that the production of that coherent binary is contingent, that it comes at a cost, and that those permutations of gender which do not fit the binary are as much a part of gender as its most normative instance.

HALSEY OPENS UP ABOUT BEING A RELUCTANT ROLE MODEL

Read the full interview on ELLE.com

The fan-loved pop star goes on the record about mental illness, being an “in-between role model,” and the plight of being an “inconvenient woman.”

When I sat down with electropop wunderkind Halsey as part of ELLE’s annual Women in Music issue—the 20-year-old appears in the portfolio alongside talent such as Florence Welch, Echosmith, and Tinashe—I didn’t know what to expect exactly. I had done my homework, of course, and had spent that morning streaming her recently released, Room 93, as well as the commentary that accompanies the EP, on her Spotify channel.

“It’s kind of pompous. There’s a smirk, a smugness,” she says of the lyrics during one of those spoken interstitials. “This person is proud of themselves for what they’re doing to you.” She pauses to catch her breath; she’s been talking a mile a minute. “But then the chorus is very vindicated…I make sure that I never play the victim." 

From that soundbite—and the scathing lyrics on tracks such as "Ghost” and “Hurricane"—I sensed a duality of character, but I never anticipated the raw honesty of a performer who so aptly communicates emotion through her art. Though she’s never spoken out about her history of hereditary bipolar disorder, Halsey went on the record with ELLE.com in an effort to dispel misconceptions people may have about mental illness. Below is a condensed version of our no-holds-barred conversation. Thank you, Halsey, for shining a light on the grey matter.

The Non-Banner Future of Display Advertising - Interruptive and Integrated Media

by Eric Berry

It’s a common refrain - display advertising is dead. While that idea isn’t exactly well supported by data showing that the industry is growing at a healthy double-digit clip annually, and with a market size well into the billions. But the general notion is based on a solid understanding of web trends and what’s reflected in the numbers that actually compose display revenue. For several reasons that we discuss below, the future is not banners - but display has a bright future.

Zinc Oxide: Thermochromic Color Change

Zinc oxide is an inorganic compound with the formula ZnO. It’s a white powder that is insoluble in water, and it is widely used as an additive in numerous materials and products including rubbers, plastics, ceramics, glass, cement, lubricants, paints, ointments, adhesives, sealants, pigments,foods, batteries, ferrites, fire retardants, and first-aid tapes. It occurs naturally as the mineral zincite, but most zinc oxide is produced synthetically.

ZnO is a wide-bandgap semiconductor of the II-VI semiconductor group. The native doping of the semiconductor due to oxygen vacancies or zinc interstitials is n-type. This semiconductor has several favorable properties, including good transparency, high electron mobility, wide bandgap, and strong room-temperature luminescence. Those properties are used in emerging applications for transparent electrodes in liquid crystal displays, in energy-saving or heat-protecting windows, and in electronics as thin-film transistors and light-emitting diodes.

Crystalline zinc oxide is Thermochromic, changing from white to yellow when heated and in air reverting to white on cooling. This color change is caused by a small loss of oxygen to the environment at high temperatures to form the non-stoichiometric Zn1+xO, where at 800 °C, x = 0.00007.
