Even though the name "iPad" conjures up visions of feminine hygiene, I still want one. Bad. Let's hope Apple can persuade Cathy Rigby to be the spokesperson. Here's the real intro video:
But I also have a passion for antiquing, flea marketing, interiors, art, crafts, music, food, and architecture which I wanted to blab about, but it really didn't fit in with my trashy Doodle Whore oeuvre. I'm a voracious reader of design blogs and shelter mags, but I find that many are simply too girly, too decorator-y, too serious, or just too perfect for me. If I have to read one more story about Hollywood Regency slipper chairs or floral abstract poppy patterned tea towels I'll barf.
So here I give you my perspective as The Rural Modernist: an illustrator and greeting card peddler living two hours north of New York City in the Catskills with his boyfriend and dogs, listening to The Smiths and Madonna while rearranging the furniture, surfing the net, scavenging through barns and tag sales, watching bad t.v., and keeping the bears out of the bird feeder.Yours truly, The Rural Modernist
