Rolling Stone magazine announced their endorsement of Barack Obama last night. I’m an Obama supporter and this still really grossed me out. Whatever happened to unbiased media? Or at least pretending to be impartial? Maybe I should be happy that these bastions of journalistic excellence (the Times backing Hillary was equally disheartening) are taking sides and publically admitting it, but what’s wrong with just not taking a side? I can’t read political articles in either of these publications anymore without feeling like I need to take a shower.
cool stuff abounds. find your way on, off and around the gridI'm a writer and wide-eyed wanderer, culturemonger and experience collector. Born in New York and raised in Colorado, I've also lived in Sydney, France, Martinique and spent various random weeks and months exploring the spaces between. Possibly as a result, I'm not happy unless I'm on a plane twice a month going somewhere to discover something cool. This is where I'll attempt to collect and share some of the things I see in travel, design, retail, music, film, web, food, style. (I admit, focus has never been my strongsuit.) Day jobs have included years at big city branding shops, little town magazines and a stint heading up marketing for an alternative law firm's San Francisco office. I still have a foot in that pretty little city but my heart resides in Manhattan.
My other gigI'm also editrix-in-chief of TheDistillery, a marketing blog focused on media, design, and brands. It's a place where a bunch of stuff goes in and only the good stuff comes out. Drink up. DistilleryMedia.com.
