Part 3 in the 2016 Presidential campaign poster series. "Under budget and ahead of schedule" is an easy to remember phras[...]e. Fits Trump's campaign rhetoric, so here's the poster. Originally was a direct numbers-to-numbers comparison with all the other candidates, but that got a little busy...

Donald J. Trump Campaign Poster 2016
09 February 2016 | designs

Wanted to make a series of 2016 presidential candidate posters like I did for the 2012 race. The first is for Donald Trump and focused on e[...]mphasizing his general goals rather than specifics. They were also left appropriately vague to allow the viewer to interpret them through their own lens/opinions on the issues.

movie review: the revenant
15 january 2016 | movies

The Revenant is a beautiful, haunting, and brutal tale of a man's struggle against nature, himself, and his fellow man. And at the[...] same time, it is one of those brilliantly conceived movies that uses screen time to allow the audience to meditate and reflect on what they have just witnessed. Go see this movie.

book review: harmony black
07 january 2016 | books

Harmony Black starts with an old premise, there is[...] a normal and magical world, and barely builds on it. If you are looking for a fun weekend read, this book will fit the bill. But don't expect to come away with a novel view on the world or a new set of wondrous ideas to mull over.

movie review: star wars the force awakens
21 december 2015 | movies

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is an okay movie when viewed through the eyes of an adult, but is a fun, entertaining movie if you go in with [...]a twelve year old's mindset. It pushes the right buttons and has a good amount of fan service. But it ultimately fails as a standalone movie—with its boring/predictable plot, rehashed characters and concepts, and other flaws—that will ultimately be remembered as good or bad depending on how episodes VIII and IX turn out.

why you should watch black mirror
29 november 2015 | television

Black Mirror is a unique and ever timely experience. The vignettes are spot on and while each explores a different aspect of our interactio[...]n with technology, the internet, and social media, there is an underlying dystopian view of the world that unifies the whole series. Watch it.

book review: steve jobs - walter isaacson
31 october 2015 | books

Walter Isaacson has done an admirable job of trying to tackle such a complicated biographical subject. But for many aspects of his life, fr[...]om his childhood upbringing to his relationship with Patty Jobs to his time at NeXT, the book is lacking.

book review: the power broker
17 september 2015 | books

As has been stated many times, Robert Caro has written a tome that will show you in minute detail how a man manipulated the law, people, an[...]d money to obtain, use, and abuse power in quest to reshape NYC. It is absorbing, thrilling, informative, and much more. Read this book.

book review: capital in the twenty-first century
29 july 2015 | books

A flawed and deceitful rant against free markets in the guise of an objective analysis about the dynamics of capital. Piketty focuses almos[...]t exclusively on the inequality of wealth/capital and its accumulation. He then spends vast portions of the book attempting to put this inequality in a bad light without clearly articulating why. Couple that with a tendency to qualify every claim so as to avoid taking a definitive stand and you have a book that leaves you more confused and less informed about the topic, the dynamics of capital, than you entered with.

I'll update this review as I continue to chew over the book's many claims/assertions.

review of mad max: fury road
02 june 2015 | movies

A gorgeously shot film that is hampered by a spartan story that never really goes anywhere and action that becomes repetitive by the end of[...] the first act.

on the subject of something: reviving an old website
12 may 2015 | website

On the Subject of Something was my original blog during high-school and early college. My Opera (the site it was hosted on) closed down and[...] I was unaware of this fact during the grace period during which they allowed users to export the content from their website. However, I am extremely grateful to the Internet Archive: Wayback Machine, which allowed me to recover many of the webpages. I've included links to all the relevant posts that I could recover. Enjoy!

john f. kennedy
12 May 2015 | designs

Decided to begin finishing my series of presidential posters. The best part of JFK's 'We choose to go to the Moon' speech isn't necessarily[...] the actual goal, but the justification for why we want to achieve that goal.
