TANNIN – modern tea boxes

A new, larger tea box is on its way to antfarm on Etsy. This version measures 11.5″ tall and fits up to 50 packaged tea-bags.

I finally saw The Force Awakens.

I went from not caring, to patient curiosity after hearing good reviews, to almost seeing it in the theatre, to giving up again and waiting until Blu Ray after being disappointed by The Witch (I’ll save that for another post). And now I want to go back and find a place that is screening it…

Back to the Grind.

Whoah. I am not good at this blogging thing. I am effing rusty. I’ve lost writer-voice a little bit, and it’s going to take some time to get myself back into that mental space where I can create mental outlines of posts before I start typing, rather than write a whole epic poem that uses…

AntAesthetic is vintage.

The first change occurring on AntAesthetic is the addition of the Vintage portion of the site. Along with articles about vintage items, artists, and antiques, the site will carry a wide array of vintage items for sale, either through Etsy or another eCommerce platform such as eBay or WooCommerce. Finding vintage and antique items is…

AntAesthetic is changing.

So many things have been happening over the course of the past few months that I really haven’t had a chance to update this blog, or really do much beyond the few giant design projects that have sucked up all of my time. But in the meantime there have been a lot of positive changes…

Frozen

Sign in to any social network over the past few months and you’re sure to find *someone* still talking about Frozen, posting a video of a girl singing “Let It Go”, or a clip of John Travolta messing up Adele Dazeem’s name. Ms. Dazeem, your voice is beautiful, I have no idea how he could’ve…

Worth Watching – The Returned (Les revenants)

Like many Netflix users, I’ve binge-watched many series, and started even more without picking them up again beyond a few episodes. I was hesitant last week to put on The Returned, a French television series from 2012, but it was auto-recommended to me and had a really good rating under its belt. So I tried…

Movie Update – Shadowhunters, Dystopias, and Norse Gods.

or… three subtitled movies with colons in them that are also based on books. Some rather minor spoilers follow. The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and Thor: The Dark World. I saw them all within the past week and a half, and honestly only bits and pieces of them left…

iamamiwhoami – “hunting for pearls”

New iamamiwhoami today, a few days later than I was expecting based on my last post, but maybe I’m still washed up. But I was also right to anticipate more water this time… Pisces, etc. So, my astrological theories continue. This time we’ve got more fish imagery, a duality of characters, a pursuit by dark…

February 21st Update

Another bulk update about tv/movies I’ve seen, games I’ve played, etc. Movies Riddick What do I say about this movie? It doesn’t really hold a candle to other things I’ve seen recently, it definitely feels a bit stunted in a few places, but I still liked it. The biggest flaw is its pacing. It doesn’t…
