Without this sounding like a personal attack, I ask why (we) feel compelled to have the coolest looking household items?
Trying to hold on to a cultural image of a designer? What’s wrong with having a wine-rack from Hungary, 16th century for the simple reason that your family is from there? Or an alarm clock from your college days? it still works, right?
I suppose what I"m asking is why do we all seem so infatuated with having the latest and greatest plastic widgit? Do any of these things make our lives better? Nope, they take money out of our pockets and into the hands of, well, other designers. Buy stuff that means something to you, otherwise it’s just stuff.
I owned one of those OXO Salad Spinners, worked great for the most part. I got rid of it because I had no more space for it and had to make way for a new cappuccino maker . It takes up some sizeable real estate in your fridge to be a crisper and more when not in use.
me thinks Deez is unemployed and living in his mommy’s basement. damn near everytime i come in here i see Deez. not too hard at work or busy designing anything it appears. what is the dealz with that? hmmmmmm salad tosser what the heck? why don’t you go to food tv.com and hang out with your pink pirate glasses? no portfolio link all talk no action blah blah. maybe lose the gay inspired shades and you get some ladies without a salad tosser lol!
I’d give him more credit except it’s pretty obvious he posts as both a guest and registered and sometimes replying to himself. Just check his first registered post. It’s a reply to the guest post which is his too. He just decided to take his own advice and register. Manufactured drama is too lame even for this forum.
