EMILY A. GRIM

I have a photography Tumblr here;
I try to post semi-frequently on my other blog.
text-minimal music blog focusing on 1920-1969 over at telegramophone.


by day, I work as a content strategist at an advertising agency in Atlanta's West Midtown.
I am into the local food movement, living sustainably and stretching. Any opinions expressed here are my own.

The books—the generous friends who met me without suspicion—the merciful masters who never used me ill! The only years of my life that I can look back on with something like pride… Early and late, through the long winter nights and the quiet summer days, I drank at the fountain of knowledge, and never wearied of the draught.

Multiple people said ‘expand dong,’ so expand dong it is.

I’ll probably give this a rest for a bit. That purple gorilla gives me the creeps.

1. Work on one thing at a time until finished.
2. Start no more new books, add no more new material to “Black Spring”.
3. Don’t be nervous. Work calmly, joyously, recklessly on whatever is in hand.
4. Work according to Program and not according to mood. Stop at the appointed time!
5. When you can’t create you can work.
6. Cement a little every day, rather than add new fertilizers.
7. Keep human! See people, go places, drink if you feel like it.
8. Don’t be a draught-horse! Work with pleasure only.
9. Discard the Program when you feel like it—but go back to it next day. Concentrate. Narrow down. Exclude.
10. Forget the books you want to write. Think only of the book you are writing.
11. Write first and always. Painting, music, friends, cinema, all these come afterwards.

you always know exactly what to say.

Dick’s Sporting Goods - Every pitch 

Today’s submission comes from colorist extraordinaire Rob Bessette at Finish Post Production in Boston.  Very cool stuff. The target for Dicks isn’t so much baseball fans as it is people who actually play baseball. And this spot shows in no uncertain terms that Dick’s as a brand truly understands the nuances of the game for real players.  It’s not some big home run by a superstar, it’s how the majority of baseball is played.  Beautifully shot, great sound design.  Nice work.

You can read all about it HERE, and it’s as awesome as it looks and sounds.

From the article:

Made With Code is a new Google initiative to motivate future female programmers. Only 18% of computer science degrees are earned by women, and Google is spending $50 million over the next three years to change those numbers.

More than 150 high school girls turned out for the event, including local chapters of the Girl Scouts of the USA, Black Girls Code and Girls Who Code. Kaling, a writer and actress, emceed the premiere, which brought in Google X Vice President Megan Smith, Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton, iLuminate creator Miral Kotb, Pixar Director of Photography Danielle Feinberg and UNICEF Innovation cofounder Erica Kochi.

Unquiet Film Series: Times New Roman

Designers, letterpress artists, and other typographic experts discuss the Times New Roman typeface in this fascinating video by the Times. The typeface was created for the paper in 1931 and, due to its subsequent use in book publishing and Microsoft products, is widely recognized. The Times still uses a variant of the typeface more than 80 years later.
