focused attention

uria aalge

These are Wachovia Corp stock-holders...

The first breeding season takes place at the age of 4-6 years. The common murre does not use nesting material, as the one egg is laid on the bare rock or soil of a steep cliff or ledge facing the sea. The egg is pyriform or pear-shaped which prevents it from rolling off of the ledge.-ADW

attack of the phone

Any RISD graduates able to date the illustration above? The intrusive hand set.

I answered my cell phone in a Church yesterday. The caller was my daughter, the service one she would have attended.
Sam Coale updates the RISD illustration with his short film, Attack of the Phone.
