In the early 80′s, Italian designer Cleto Munari asked a few of his architect and designer friends to create a jewelry collection for his eponymous brand. That’s how Mario Bellini, Michele de Lucchi, Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves, Hans Hollein, Arata Isozaki, Richard Meier, Alessandro Mendini, Paolo Portoghesi, Peter Shire, Ettore Sottsass, Stanley Tigerman, Oscar Tusquets, Robert Venturi, Lella Vignelli, and Marco Zanini came up with some truly interesting and unique pieces of jewelry in their very own style - a Memphis style.
My Ranking of the Fast and the Furious Film Series
After watching all eight Fast and the Furious movies with @craniumhurricane over the last month, I’ve finalized my current rankings of the series. These could change once the next two come out, but that’s a couple years off. For now, here’s my completely biased opinion. Han and Gisele forever!!

It’s hard to explain to someone who isn’t wholly a bibliophile that yes, I buy books because they have beautiful covers and incredible stories and worlds and characters that I love to get lost in and even seeing their spines and titles on my shelves brings back the exact moment I read a scene that made me laugh so hard I cried or when I was so lost in another place, in someone else, that I didn’t realize it was three in the morning until I’d read the last line and it was completely worth the loss of sleep to spend every second inside the words printed on those pages nestled snugly on my bookshelf so I can return to that moment anytime I so wish.
