I’m a freelance interactive content strategist and copywriter in Austin, TX. See my work here.

I post about whatever geeky stuff interests me. Sometimes I post funny stuff that I make up. About once a week I post videos of my cat Yeti ignoring me. I welcome reader suggestions and feedback. I seldom get any.

Oh, yeah. I’m also the recording artist currently known as ManChildATX.

Sit on Yuyu Ushida's sofa made of 8000 recycled chopsticks, an hour later you'll want to sit on it again

As seen on Inhabitat and probably a million other places. Designer Yuyu Ushida wanted to highlight the ecological impact of disposable wooden chopsticks, so dude made this elaborate piece. Wouldn’t it have been simpler just to write a Facebook post about it? Yeah, but then I guess he wouldn’t have gotten any furniture out of the deal. ‘Cause this baby isn’t just ONE piece of furniture—oh, no. It squooshes in laterally to the width of a chair. No word on whether it’s available with StainMaster or not. 

I’m thinking not.
