Miscellaneous Ramblings

Things seen and heard recently:

1. The demise of Domino magazine. March is the last month it will be in print. A bit of a shame. It always had nice ideas and some darn good recipes as well.

2. KERA 90.1's Think show was all about community, culture, and urban design. From the website: "Can landscape architecture and urban design create public spaces that meet the needs of a diverse population? We'll explore the possibilities this hour with Karen Walz, Project Manager for Vision North Texas and Don Gatzke, Dean of UTA's School of Architecture." Listen to the podcast here.

3. Did anyone see Fringe last night and notice the music playing at the end of the show? That would be Denton's own Midlake and the song playing was "Bandits" off the album The Trials of Van Occupanther.

4. Re:Vision Dallas has their competition info up here. Fame and fortune could be yours if your project is selected. Hop to it my architecture friends - you know who you are. Submissions are due April 30, 2009. So if you end up on April 15th having to pay the tax man, this could be a way to do it.
