Vibram FiveFingers



The first shoe from Vibram, maker of 32 million soles a year for more than 1,000 footwear brands. It’s a light-weight shoe, like Nike’s Free taken to the extreme, useful for any outdoor activities you’d rather do barefoot like running, boating, or rock climbing. Reviews seem to be mostly positive.

Sketches of Frank Gehry



Director Sydney Pollack’s first feature length documentary on the acclaimed architect, Frank O. Gehry. The two men have been friends for many years, and Pollack completed the film over a period of five years, starting in 2000. Frank Gehry loves to sketch; it is the beginning of his architectural process.

Opened the 12th of May, though naturally, nowhere near where I live.

Batwoman Comes Back, Comes Out

sketch of the re-imagined Batwoman

Killed in September 1979 by the League of Assassins and the Bronze Tiger, Batwoman – a.k.a. Kathy Kane – is set to return in 52, a year-long DC Comics publication beginning this month. This time however, Batwoman is a lesbian.

Reaction to the announcement has been varied, but to the critics Dan DiDio, VP and executive editor at DC Comics, says:

You know what? Judge us by the story and character we create. We are confident that we are telling a great story with a strong, complex character. (…) It’s kind of weird. We had a feeling it would attract some attention, but we’re a little surprised it did this much.

DiDio

The new Batwoman joins a wave of diverse characters entering and re-entering the DC Comics universe, including Firestorm and The Atom, Black and Asian respectively.

Rumor has it Kane is introduced in the comic by striking her ex-girlfriend across the jaw. KAPOW!

“Very Active” Hurricane Season

Today, the 1st of June, marks the first day of this year’s hurricane season. Colorado State University forecasters predict a “very active” year with five major storms expected, and an 82 percent chance that at least one will make landfall on the US east cost (compared to the normal likelihood of 52 percent).

Last year Katrina killed over 1,500 and cost billions of dollars in damage. New FEMA director David Paulison commented today on improved emergency measures, including better communication and evactuation plans.

We’ve gone through those [evacuation plans], we’ve rehearsed them, we’re very comfortable that those are going to work.
