austinkleon:

Leslie Jones on late success

Jones spent 25 years as a road comic before she became a star. Here she is in her New Yorker profile, talking about success: 

“I’m glad this whole success thing is happening now,” she said. “I can’t even imagine a twenty-three-year-old Leslie in this position. They would have kicked me off the set after two days. I would have fucked half the dudes in the crew.” She sat up and wrapped a towel around her head. “I was a less confident person back then. And damn sure not as funny.”

Collapsible Furniture That Transforms From Two to Three Dimensions Designed by Jongha Choi

by Kate Sierzputowski
Cooper Griggs

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

furniture-illusion-omg

Inspired by our perception of flattened images, Korean designer Jongha Choi decided to build a set of furniture that collapses into two-dimensions, conveniently hanging on the wall when not in use. These tables and chairs were produced for his thesis at Eindhoven Design Academy in The Netherlands, and are collectively titled De-Dimension.

“In our current situation, in which modern society experiences the image, in relation to advertising, image circulation and the internet, why do we not question an image’s confinement to a flat surface,” said Choi in his thesis. “Why don’t we try to get more stereoscopic and attempt for direct experience with the image. My question started with this point, and I tried several experiments in order to realize this idea from a personal point of view.”

You can see the collapsible models in action below and read more about Choi’s project on his website. (via Twister Sifter)

This still amazes me; that we can land a rocket upright after delivering its payload into orbit at thousands of kilometers an hour.
