Hairy Badcasts

Nooooo....... no more BeADesignCast's! I've been enjoying this design podcast for about a year now. Great tips for design students and funny interviews with top graphic designers. The show about how "getting a job in graphic design" is like dating is not to be missed. Luckily, a couple of the hosts are starting their own site and podcast at 39point. The Reflex Blue Show starts next month. Yay! More Dew!
I got the chance to finally see the rest of this week's Project Runway. Chris March....wah? He used human hair for his designs. I did like the way the hair caught the light on the runway and the use of safety pins for one of the skirts. Should human hair be regarded any different than any other animal fiber? I think I would feel kinda weird wearing a human hair sweater, though. I wonder how you would clean it. With shampoo? Would you have to use conditioner to keep the fibers from splitting? Kudos to Chris for presenting something so different and interesting on the show.

New DIY magazine

Here's a new web magazine, DIY City. I love the illustrations and they have an overview of some great yarn shops in New York city.

Happy Valentines Day!
