It's not easy to be an SEO copywriter, in fact, most people fail. It combines two or more skills; being a good writer and actually understanding search engine optimisation.

The Beautifully Frightening Atom

For the night crowd.

Something about the atom rustles up both fear and amazement in me. On one hand, it’s the smallest physical manifestation of matter (almost). On the other hand, it holds within its unimaginably small substructures such immense energy - energy that can be harnessed for both good and evil.

Thoughts of atomic energy can inspire very spooky imagery. In 2003, artist Isao Hashimoto put together the above multimedia piece demonstrating the history of atomic bomb detonations from 1945-1998. The sounds and visuals combine to form a hypnotic video game that almost makes you forget how real and destructive the blasts are.

And then I came across this image of the only known nuclear detonation in space, from a 1962 test to determine if nukes could disrupt the Van Allen belts surrounding Earth:

Again, there’s a conflict in how beautiful the image looks and how utterly destructive an H-bomb is, even 250 miles above the Earth.

What about nuclear energy? Fukushima reminded us of the balance between atomic power and human utility that we too often take for granted. I came upon this artwork from Robert Cherwink, which captures both the destructive power and the risk of boiling water with atoms:

So there you have it. While we can’t see atoms, their energy can certainly inspire haunting experiences.

Saturdays Surf NYC
Lookbook—A moment with Louise Du Toit

Owners Morgan Collett, Josh Rosen and Colin Tunstall launched the innovative store to suit a lifestyle occupied with surfing, living and working in New York City. In addition to boards, wetsuits and beachwear Saturdays sources and sells books, fine art and other quality lifestyle accessories. Its front-of-shop espresso bar serves La Colombe brewed by the best baristas in the city. Out back, the fully planted yard is a wood-decked sanctuary from the streets, a place to enjoy your coffee, hang out with friends or have a quiet meeting.

Interview: Chris Colfer Talks ‘Struck By Lightning’ and Ninja Turtles →

So much above, click click, but also here’s the outtakes I just couldn’t work into the piece:

On Adaptations He’d Want To Do For Film:

You know what I wanted to adapt so bad and I was so sad when It got snachted up?  Candyland.  I wanted to adapt Candyland so bad!  For an adaptation it has to be really fun.  Little Leftover Witch, which I adapted for Disney, was so fun.  I don’t think I could ever adapt something like Art of War.

On Who He Wants To Work With:

Tim Burton, for sure. I feel like I’m a living, breathing Tim Burton character.  So I’m just waiting for that phone call. 

On What Song Was Banned At The SBL Afterparty:

Last night at the afterparty I specifically banned Single Ladies because I didn’t want to do it.  Because when they play it, I have do it!

On The Town Of Clover:

I grew up in Clovis, and I will say I rat on it all the time, but it really is a nice town.  There’s certain things that could be changed, there’s a lot of conservative mindsets can be altered, but overall it’s a nice place to live.  But I feel like as a teenager there’s never a nice place to live, you’re like ‘I don’t want to be here, I want to be there.’ For Clover I wanted to show a town that was understandably why you wanted to get out of it.  That way the character who have no aspiration to get out of it, it’s like, ‘what’s wrong with you?’  Even if you’re happy living your simple life, why do it here?

On If Carson Has An Internet Life:

I think he definitely checks stocks for no reason, and he checks the New Yorker blogs and all that.  He had a computer and a watch, that’s kind of all the technology he has.  The story follows him and his mom, and I think it relates to both kids and adults on similar paths, and I think a lot of older audiences would probably not identify with the whole blog situation, and I didn’t want anyone to have any confusion.  Like, “I blogged it, I tweeted it —” well what are you doing?  What’s the difference between any of those?

Still Not Going To Do This Every Day: Exit →

Always lead with the news: I’ve decided to leave my position at Newsweek and accept a job at Tumblr. Though this is cliche, it is indeed true that this has been a difficult decision for me. I have been and continue to be a loud and persistent defender of Newsweek, and this is not (mostly, anyway!)…
