Between the Grammys, Golden Globes and Oscar awards all taking place within the last few months, the fashion industry has definitely had an abundance of red carpet inspiration. Like I said in my post about the Grammys, sometimes the dresses get more hype than any of the awards. Designers definitely did not fail this time around. They dressed actors and actresses to the nines this year with a super-vintage feel.
Now that the spring weather is upon us, all of the goodies that come along with spring are here too. One of my favorite things that happens now is hearing about rumors of new technology, specifically smartphones, that will be released in the coming months. There are a few devices that consumers should keep an eye out for next time they upgrade their mobile tech. First on the list is Samsung’s Galaxy S4.
Today marks the 85th annual Academy Awards. There’s some big competition at this year’s Oscars. With Seth Macfarlane hosting, it’s gearing up to be a night of laughs as well as its traditional sophistication. But what’s the story behind this yearly tradition of highlighting the best new movies?
Wednesday was a big day for gaming fans as information about the PlayStation 4 was announced. Sony unveiled a new Dualshock controller, a list of the console’s new specs and new, interesting features, including the future app and the ability to play a game from the console on a PSVita. Following this announcement on Wednesday, a realization hit me: the age of ubiquity with electronics is finally upon us.
This week I am bringing to you the second installment in what can now be considered Art of the Matter’s Monthly DIY Post!

Last weekend’s 70-degree temperatures got me in the mood for spring. I started going through my closet and pulling out all of my favorite dresses and shorts, but just like with any new season I started longing for new clothes. Instead of going shopping I decided to get creative and turn old clothes into new.
Last week, Tom and I attended a free lecture at the Tempe History Museum. The topic for this month was the research of Stephen Germick about the Apache Leap legend. The legend goes like this:
It is not every day that you see me writing about printers. I actually try to avoid writing about those things because nothing amazing has come from them recently. While this is still true, ASU has tried to make printing that much easier with their recent enactment of the Print Anywhere feature offered on campus.

I probably should not be so embarrassed to admit this, but I have seen enough ASU students on OkCupid to know I’m not alone in using a digital matchmaker to grab at the elusive dangling carrot of love.

A lawmaker’s bill, which would have prevented print advertisers from dramatically altering images, did not see a vote this year but has initiated a debate among groups about false advertising and the portrayal of women’s bodies.
An Occupy Wall Street flyer urges people to “shut down the corporations” with the sophomoric rationale that to shut down corporations is to “create a society that is organized to meet human needs...” Meanwhile, the once venerable Forbes magazine asks the question, “Is Obama a Socialist?” only to answer, “Yes, Obama is a Socialist.” Somebody should lock these people in a room together.
