Words Can’t Express 6

These were sent in by Sonja from ages ago. As Sonja put it:

Here’s a pair of ugly shoes for you. These shoes seem very aptly named, don’t they? They look like an art project I would have done in the second grade.

The second graders at Irregular Choice had a kind of cool basic idea: a fabric flower design on the heels is that perfectly quirky touch that a pair of ModCloth heels needs.

Unfortunately, these shoes fall victim to a common problem found in the artistic endeavors of the seven-and-under set: that if some is good, more is totally awesome.

I was familiar with modern artists like Pollack, so to me there was little craft in creating art. Truth be told, the difference between a Jackson Pollack and anything I created in my art class is that Pollack knew when to stop. I, on the other hand, did not. I was sure that the more things I put on an arts and crafts project, the better it would be. If a little glitter was good, covering the paper in glue and then pouring out the entire bottle of glitter obviously made it worthy of hanging in the Louvre. Garnish with a couple pipe cleaners and you were faced with a work so majestic, so perfect, that to look at it was to look at the face of God.

As a result, many of my crafts collapsed under their own weight, because construction paper is not meant to support a pint of glue and glitter.

Somehow, these shoes manage to support themselves. Although this is a feat of engineering, it’s not near impressive enough to forgive the fact that it looks like what would happen if you took “Bring Your Daughter to Work Day” a little too seriously.

    I thought you’d forgotten those… I just noticed that it looks like some of the fabric the “petals” are made out of looks like it’s covered in sequins.

      No, I definitely didn’t forget. More often than not, if I don’t post a suggestion, or if I take forever to post it, it’s because I’m having a hard time being clever about it, and I get super-neurotic about making sure that my reader contribution posts don’t totally suck.

      This post has been sitting in limbo for months as I played with the language … I’m still not totally happy with it, but there’s only one pair left and I didn’t want to miss the window of opportunity completely.

      I didn’t even notice the sequins, good catch! That’s all kinds of wrong.

    The iOS Metal API currently only works on devices that use GPUs based on Imagination Technologies’ Rogue architecture, which limits it to devices that use Apple’s A7, A8, and A8X SoCs.

    Smartphone screens have been touch sensitive for many years, but Apple’s latest smartphones are also pressure sensitive, so they can tell how hard the user is pressing on them.

    There are other more obscure social media networks and forums in Asia where employees of Apple’s suppliers interact. Hemmerstoffer makes no comment about paying leakers.
