tailored made

This has been bugging me for a while, Jack gave that jumpsuit to Danny but Danny already has his own, the white and black one.

And while he only wears it in the intro and one scene he still has a suit tailor made for his body. So did Jack forget or do Danny’s parents not know about this one? I refuse to use the excuse of writers not caring.

Before you start complaining to musicians for releasing a track that isn’t tailor-made for your taste, think about the changes you’ve made over the years. Think about the music you used to love give or take 5 years ago and the music you love today. Most likely, it’ll be a huge difference.

Let’s create a healthy environment for artists that’ll encourage them to evolve and release art that they are proud of rather than releasing the same old song over and over to satisfy the need of the oldschool fans. It takes courage to create art for yourself, knowing you’ll be bashed for it, rather than choose the easy way out. It wouldn’t be fair to expect from them to not express themselves as the person they’ve become.

We’ve stumbled on a view
That’s tailor-made for two
What a shame those two are you and me
Some other girl and guy would love this swirling sky
But there’s only you and I

What a waste of a lovely night

I just drew the characters, the background is from the poster of La La Land

I recently saw the movie and it’s fantastic (and it hurts) So here’s one with Aaron (as Mia) and Alexander (as Sebastian).

Also sorry I haven’t been actively lately as I’m working on my thesis project this semester.

RAD is celebrating Women’s History Month with a series of guest posts featuring stories from the  #NPRchives handpicked by #NPRwomen.

First up, NPR’s Melissa Block:

I was a late-blooming Yankee fan:  I got hooked on Yankee baseball in the mid-1990s, soon after I moved to New York to report for NPR. Pretty soon, I’d gin up any reason to go cover something Yankee-related. So imagine my joy as I was watching a ballgame one night and first heard the unmistakably loud and dramatic strike calls of umpire Jim Joyce exploding out of my TV.  This was a story tailor-made for radio. Pretty soon, I was up at Yankee Stadium, talking with Joyce about the art of calling balls and strikes, and about the life of an umpire. Nearly two decades later (!), this is still one of my all-time favorite stories. I was reminded of it last week, when I heard the news that Jim Joyce will be hanging up his umpire shoes after 30 years in the majors. Dang. I’ll sure miss that voice.

Take a listen to the 1998 Morning Edition story featuring Jim Joyce’s unmistakable voice.
