Today’s bike swap steal: Team Astana replica thermal winter jacket: $30. Bonus sized XS just for me!
Can’t wait to jackass around on inappropriate bikes in this jacket.
Co-worker: “It’s so cold. Did you ride in today?”
Me: “I follow the ABCs of bike commuting. Always Bike Commute.”
People tend to have one of three beliefs about the meaning of work and which category you fall into largely depends on your parents, according to new research from the University of Michigan.
Workers who are job-oriented are those just trying to make a living who much prefer the activities they pursue outside of the office. Career-oriented adults—your typical “workaholic”—value the social status and prestige that comes with professional achievement, and derive much of their identity from their jobs. Calling-oriented people do work that they are passionate about because they want to have a positive impact on the world.

This guy stopped watching porn — and he wants you to know why. Gender activist Ran Gavrieli felt that most of the images he saw in porn encouraged negative, even violent, attitudes toward women, despite a recent wave of feminist porn. So he pulled the plug, and found that his personal sex life and private fantasies became much more fulfilling.
In his talk at TEDxJaffa, he advocates for physically and emotionally-safe sex, as well as erotica that shows a wider range of fulfilling sexual experiences — including the intimacy of human connection, laughter, and touch. Watch his talk here.
Even if you don’t watch porn on a regular basis its conventions can still easily fuck up your internal sexual narrative. As a woman experiencing or fantasizing about (heterosexual) sex I realized that I began finding it easier to immerse myself in the imagined pleasure of the man than my own. Ain’t that some shit.
Porn has also been credited for reducing sexual violence in the real world. This guy may have had a problem that was caused by porn, but another may have a problem that was solved by it.
Also, I’m curious if there is a way to easily find uh…socially conscious porn? Where you can feel good knowing that the actors in the films are not being taken advantage of.

Would you be surprised if I told you that the average price clients were willing to pay was very sad? Continue reading “Ad Agency Tries Letting Clients ‘Pay What You Want’" on AdWeek.
wtfkits: Conflicted, on one hand I like the direction they took with the jersey but dipping a toe in retro and the other in modern … I feel uneasy. As if old milk was sampled a bit too deeply towards the point if no return and now results may be explosive ala “out both ends”. Or, it could be glorious crushing spring classic dreams. Verdict: future unclear, ask again in 5 months.
Diggin’ the simplicity, but those logos need bigger margins.
