By now, you’ve heard of Instagram’s ridiculous new ToS they’re bringing in on Jan 16th. As a industry professional, I cannot allow my work to be used uncompensated, among other things. Check out here what model Coco Rocha has to say. Personally, I’ve quit already, and asked my collaborators and clients to take down any work I still own copyrights to. It’s a huge pain in the ass, thanks Insta-goons. … Continue reading →

Hey Strangekittens. I wanted to explain why I don’t use Vegetable/seed/grain oils, as I’ve been asked and flamed a bit for using butter. I just KNOW this post is going to cause some argument.

My street is overrun with tiny, fluffy baby squirrels. So…obviously I ran around with a giant zoom lens taking pictures like a weirdo. They were happily scooting around like zoomy little buggers. I left some nuts outside for them, they’re all already gone!

Hey Strangekittens. Yesterday I saw a wonderful post about how (the author’s) body type affects where she shops. Obviously to some extent this applies to everyone, but how? Let’s look at this from my personal experience. I hate shopping for clothing. I really, really do. It’s not even a size thing any more, now that I’ve gone down a few sizes. To start off with, i’m dramatically taller than average, which I’ve mentioned before. 5’11 to be exact, and … Continue reading →
Hey Strangekittens! Did you have a good Earth Day weekend? Mine was pretty chill. I played WAY too much TERA Online though!
Yesterday was Earth Day, so I thought i’d pick up some earthy-links to share this week.
