Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

I am gonna #hashtag the #hashtag today.

Over at Waldina, we celebrated Mary Astor, Joan Crawford, Isadora Duncan, Shirley Booth, and Pablo Picasso.   While at Wasp & Pear, we celebrated abandoned places (naturally), minimalist movie posters, Pablo Neruda, vintage film footage of Los Angeles, and my re commitment to using the #adn to cross-post my “tweets” to Tumblr and ADN.  While setting all that up, I did notice that I have over 200 posts queued at Wasp & Pear, with the schedule of two a day, I could stop posting and they would automatically load well into November.  Not that I am stopping, but that is kind of a fun fact.  #funfact #waldina #wasp&pear

Interesting how I never mention Facebook

I feel like my barber may have cut more of my hairs than I had wished on Friday, I feel bald.

This past week, I have been in love with a new app on my phone called Field Trip.  Here are the details:

Field Trip is your guide to the cool, hidden, and unique things in the world around you. Field Trip runs in the background on your phone. When you get close to something interesting, it pops up a card with details about the location. No click is required. If you have a headset or bluetooth connected, it can even read the info to you.

Field Trip can help you learn about everything from local history to the latest and best places to shop, eat, and have fun. You select the local feeds you like and the information pops up on your phone automatically, as you walk next to those places.

You can set the frequency that it alerts you to history and attractions around you or you can turn it off and only use it when you want to.  I love that on my way to work, it sends me a notice of things I am near.  It is amazing to think that I walk by things every day without knowing their full stories.  I think everyone should try it.  You can share what you are near via your favorite sharing medium and it creates a scrap book of your travels.  I load them to my Tumblr queue.  I should really just start putting them everywhere (except facebook, obviously).  It really is amazing. All the photos and captions above are from Field Trip and my commute to work. #history #civics

In other news, Florida and Texas behaved like Florida and Texas.  It’s hard to be surprised when they stay true to their characters.  It doesn’t make me any less sad/angry/disappointed in them, but I am not surprised.  #biggots #biblethumpers

It seems like I see more and more people texting/talking on their phones while driving lately.  I will start shaming them, publicly.  #selfish #clueless #dumbass #hands-free
