Flickr Friday: Rhodia in Your Bag

Thanks to Phil at Sun  for use of the above image. View the original (with notes) here

Once again, it’s that time to take a peek into other people’s bags… When I first joined Flickr, (a social photo sharing site) I had a great deal of fun perusing the “What’s in Your Bag?” photo group. People would neatly lay out the contents of their bags to show off what they carry with them on a day-to-day basis. And not only would they show, they would also tell – adding numerous tagged notes to the images to describe each and every item in the photo. (Click through the links to see the notes) After a while, I had to stop looking because I started to want to go and buy things that other people had.  Like journals…and art supplies… and a new iPod…. new camera… new bag…

Flickr Friday: Your First Rhodia – Which, Where and When?

1st rhodia

Flickr member Eric Morgan noted this image as containing his first Rhodia.  Way to go Eric for choosing the Webnotebook!  My own first Rhodia was a No° 11 Bloc pad that I bought at Blick in 2005 after finding that one of my favorite jewelry designers, (Thomas Mann) never went out without one in his back pocket. I can’t say that I ever used it for designing jewelry, but I did use it to store information that I wanted to be able to refer to again and again and the No° 11 was small enough to reside in my bag for several years.  Rhodia fans – which was your first, and when and where did you get it?

American culture appears to increasingly find masochistic solace in populism veiled as true pluralism, even in the wake of social media advances that allow for more diverse information consumption. We are sadly locked into an economic model that we as consumers have built for ourselves and will require true popular change to unravel, something which we have seen social media do to an extent.” Written like a real social thinker and critic. And he is. Eston Bond is an economics major at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, creator of the upcoming website, Socialuxe. In a sepate site called Hyalineskies, Eston wrote a very incisive essay on social networking, pluralism and trends, as well as the role of the Internet in popular culture. He observed, that “when the aesthetics of social or cultural identity catch on in the mainstream, meaning is lost that ruins the original reason for that aesthetic development, an unintended cost on the true creators of the trend.” Which got us into thinking, where do we belong in the curve?

“Emotion or feeling is really the only thing about pictures I find interesting. Beyond that it is just a trick.
–Christopher Anderson

Pictures tell lot of stories. Behind those images lie the joys, heartaches, excitement, serenity, contentment, awe, boredom, loneliness, love, longing, understanding, comfort, ethusiasm frozen in time as if wanting to jump out of the frame. We may not know much about Zelda クマコ (katana Japanese characters for Kumako, not Kemako as translated earlier), but her Flickr has a lot to tell. We know that she’s a gadget junkie who loves her iPod, PSP, Leica and Motorola Razor cellphone. We also know that she’s fixated with donuts, and everytime she eats them on breakfeast, she needs “at least two.” She’s also a fan of Japanese pop artist, Yoshitomo Nara, a cult-like figure whose work includes manga-inspired rendetion of innocent-looking children. We also know that she likes to hang out at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, “because it’s free.” Of course, judging from her eye for artistic stuff, we’re sure she’s got taste for modern art too. What we don’t know is, who is she missing.

Your Rhodia Driver began to appreciate the art of tea preparation while studying at a university in Tokyo, Japan. It used to be that it was not our cup of tea (pun intended). But that year-long stay in the Land of the Rising Sun, just opened up a new Zen-like experience for us. While there, we noticed how people drink tea, instead of just plain water. And we experienced first hand the art of preparing the drink. So it was a pleasant surprise bumping into ChaHai online. It brought good memories of that awesome year, that would profoundly transform our view of the world.
