An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

  • Question

    I was just wondering if maybe you can comment on your masthead designs on the Mastheads page. Interested in your inspiration behind a couple of designs (including current one)–no doubt others are interested as well– and a line or two would definitely satiate my curiousity.

    Just an idea, no offense if not implemented.

    i’m an amateur photographer, and i was wondering, what do you do to your pictures to get them to look the way they do? they have a soft, blurry-edged quality to them that i would love to reproduce on my own photographs…

    also, what kind of camera do you use?

    thanks in advance for your time! =)

    Oh thank the Lord in Heaven.

    Everything is well with the world once more.

    In other news, I think I’m becoming myopic. Or overreactive.

  • Whoa. You have so juiced up the colors in some of those shots. It really works, too. #14 is drop-dead.

    Shaving the beard!? Tell me it isn’t so. Was it nothing more than a tease? A whim? A mere winter coat? (Yeah, I know, it’s hot in the desert in summertime.)

  • once again, great pictures dooce. and just about the most perfect soundtrack choice…if you get a chance, see mr. beam and friends live. fo sheezy. (also, since i see you’re into calexico and i&w, check out holopaw, norfolk & western, fruit bats. hooray for subpop!)

  • I vote myopic AND overreactive.

  • Kind of like me.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
