I speak for my colleagues the world over: everybody, please stop using "curate" synonymously with "select" or "organize," particularly in the context of arranging tchotchkes or making organizational or design decisions. That's not how that word works and you just sound really pretentious.

Cheap, Yet Chic: 8 Living Room Ideas for Little to No Money

In Baltimore we have a great farmers' market on Sundays downtown under the highway overpass that runs May-December; off season (and year round), there's another smaller farmers market that is open on Saturdays. I try (if not hungover, or otherwise indisposed) on Sundays to go there, try to plan meals in my head, and supplement my produce and dairy buys with stuff from one of two grocery stores in walking distance. The Giant has a private brand of organics, Nature's Promise, that's really inexpensive, and a good selection of fake meats. If there's something fancier I need (a special cheese, a weirdo fake meat), I go to Food know what I mean. So 1-2x a week.

I think its charming and to the point.
Gallery directors aren't necessarily wealthy, and Vassell's post at Deitch is a fairly recent one (there was an article about her a few weeks ago in the NYT). The space, if the last line of the article is any indication, is likely a work in progress. It's an entertainment space. For that it's perfect. What, the Knoll chairs aren't enough to tickle any of your Mid C fancies?

I use the green bucket from Gaiam and it's great. It has a carbon filter, I never smell anything. We use a biobag for a liner, and when its full, we take it to the community compost heap.

Sometimes, walking up Falls Road (between 41st and the Avenue) is like walking into a scene from DAWN OF THE DEAD.
I'm considering a move to Waverly...that's where all my "hipster" friends actually live. The houses are massive (and cheap), the year-round farmers market is there, and its just plain lovely.

As a Hampdenite, I must say, I see more toothless rednecks and teenagers pushing baby carriages than hipsters...unless its the Saturday brunch shuffle on the Avenue.
That said, I love the Baltimore love on AT.

Thank you AT for posting this. I was looking for lighting for my bathroom, which is terribly dim, and was hoping to do something about the ugly, dusty ceiling vent in the ceiling. This is perfect.

I like Marcal's recycled brand, it lasts a long time, is adequately soft without the residual fluff. A roll on average lasts my household (of 2) about 5 days, sometimes more...and it's cheap. I prefer it to the Seventh Generation TP.

I am going to make a print of that poster and frame it in the finest brass frame I can find, and hang it over my couch.

1. the link to the artist's site is dead
2. these are great, but
3. a price tag of upwards of 250 bucks for one is NOT (what they go for at Rose and Radish)
