Sustainable Memories by Resign| Furniture

by Accidental Bear

Mean, green, awesome machine. Growing up in Up State my family frequented Farmers Markets, Apple Orchards, and at the time lived a very new way of living, Green. Then, we were just hippies, but now it’s a movement even whispered from ear to ear in the White House. My design aesthetics have always been focussed around earth tones, wood, water and all of the 5 elements. “Resign, a creative network and lab out of Italy, creates a distinctive methodology to creativity and creation where it attempts to connect to all designers who believe in magic and the symbolic value of things.” It is if they were me, if I were more creative and could swing a hammer. Resign has managed to take reduce, re-recycle, re-use from bumper sticker status and make interesting, functional art.

Founded in 2007 by Andrea MagnaniGiovanni DelVecchio and Elisabetta Amatori the methodology is based on:

  • Channeling creativity into meaningful paths that can be easily shared
  • Creating a sense of identity and symbolic capital to their pieces and the network of relations
  • The necessity to revise the design methods looking forward towards sustainability

America’s Dirtiest Beaches Revealed

by Accidental Bear

Summer patterns are already underway but one thing you can still do is check the water before entering for feces or syringes. It is the last thing you want to check for as you take a refreshing dive into assumed clean water. A new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) offers answers, as well as tips to help you find the healthiest beaches in your area.


The NRDC’s 21st annual beachwater quality report, released on Wednesday, covers 200 of America’s most popular beaches and reports on the effects of stormwater runoff, sewage overflows, human and animal waste and oil on water quality. According to the NRDC, last year witnessed the second-highest number of beach closings and advisory days in the last two decades.
“America’s beaches have long suffered from pollution — the difference is now we know what to do about it,” said NRDC senior attorney Jon Devine in a prepared statement. “By making our communities literally greener on land, we can make the water at the beach cleaner. In the years to come, there’s no reason we can’t reverse this dirty legacy.” MORE

Handpicked Headlines: Gay Professors, Rudy Giuliani, Snoopiest Governments

The 11 Snoopiest Governments, According To Google

Google Transparency Report 2011

Texas Coffee Shop Profits After Tweeting Homophobically Just after New York approved same-sex marriage, the Brown Coffee Company of San Antonio, Texas (does Texas allow same-sex marriage?) posted a Twitter that seemed not-so-coincidentally homophobic. People got mad, so Brown’s clowns took that Twitter down and apologized. But they weren’t sorry for long (ka-ching)!

College Kids Think Gay Professors Are All Biased  College students: will they ever be able to judge political bias with any accuracy? No, they haven’t even decided whether Ayn Rand or Chinua Achebe is cooler yet! So it’s no surprise they think every gay teacher is biased. Yeah, with gay bias. A new study found that students at the University of Houston (Clarification: The University of Houston-Downtown, which is a separate school, we’re told)—presented with only a syllabus and a professor’s bio—said that gay professors were politically biased, based only on the fact that they were gay.

Having Reneged on Three Straight Marriages, Rudy Giuliani Ruins His First Gay One  Never believe anything Rudy Giuliani tells you about marriage. “I do”? Bullshit. “To have and to hold”? Lie. “I promise to preside over the wedding of my two good gay friends as soon as marriage is legal in New York”? Take a guess.

LGBT Gathering Marks Anniversary in India Activists held a colorful rally Saturday in New Delhi to celebrate the second anniversary of a court decision striking down a law against gay sex and to push for further progress on LGBT rights.

Advocate Magazine Spotlights Artist Alexei Biryukoff: Banned for obscenity in Siberia

by Accidental Bear
Banned for obscenity in Siberia, Biryukoff’s large-scale male figure paintings are like landscapes of expressive strokes and earthy color.

By Christopher Harrity at


Alexei Biryukoff was born in Kyrgyzstan, later lived in Kazakhstan, and moved to Russia in 1990, the year before the Soviet Union fell apart. Since 2011 he has been living and working in Deptford, N.J. He is a self-taught artist, having never attended art school. Before he got his master’s degree in linguistics in 2000, he had his first solo show at a small local gallery in Siberia. At that point he devoted his focus full-time to being an artist. Since then he has had nine solo shows and participated in international group shows and biennials. After receiving a grant from CEC Artslink in New York City in 2008, he came for his first visit to the United States and spent five weeks in art residency in Provincetown, Mass., in one of the oldest art colonies in the States.

Welcome To The Dollhouse: Looking Back At The Films Of Todd Solondz

by Accidental Bear

“Dawn, Are you a lesbian?”

A screening of Welcome to the Dollhouse at the Book Club last week prompted Yasmeen Khan at to reflect on Todd Solondz‘s unique and compelling body of work.

“Fuck family. Fuck motherhood. Fuck the kids. I just don’t care any more,” says Alison Janney’s Trish, holding a post-coital cigarette two-thirds of the way through Todd Solondz’s 2009 film Life During Wartime. As soon as she has her clothes back on, though, she retracts the statement. “Love really can change a person,” she tells her new boyfriend. It’s a typical Solondz moment. You have to keep up.
