iSad: Bye bye, Steve Jobs…

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently…

They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

Because they change things. They push the human race forward.

And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Imma pour one out for this…

I learned that Steve Jobs had passed away last night on my iPhone in a room filled with bloggers.

I couldn’t do much other than gasp and blurt out the news, interrupting our lovely evening like the rammy jerk that I am (sorry High Road – love you guys).

I wasn’t shocked so much as I was… sad. It’s no secret that the Apple chief’s health was on the decline. I knew the minute I saw this video that the end was near. It was almost as if these folks wanted to pay tribute to Jobs while he was still alive to witness it. I’m glad now that they did.

The Internet is reeling with sadness today. Some call us melodramatic hipsters because none of us actually knew Mr. Jobs personally. Apparently, he wasn’t even nice.

Fair enough, but feelings are feelings and we are sad. Perhaps we’re lamenting more for everything he created to make our life better than for the man himself… the Apple Macintosh, the iMac, the MacBooks, the MBP, the iPods, iPhones, iPad…

Steve Jobs was my generation’s Leonardo DaVinci (of sorts). I did not know him, but my culture was shaped by him and I will never forget Steve Jobs or all of the hilarious random things created in his likeness.

More tributes are floating around right now than anyone could care to count… my favourite is boing boing’s classic Macintosh reskinning:

Here are 15 inspirational Steve Jobs Quotes courtesy ofMashable and their audience, instructions for making a Steve Jobs head out of cheese (pictured above) and a printable DIY Steve Jobs paper doll.

My first Apple Device was a Macintosh Performa 575 in 1994. It changed my life. What was yours?

Major day tomorrow for this kid :) All will be revealed eventually.

Kreayshawn at the Roosevelt Room + TIFFmas begins

Awwwww yeah.

Remember that Kreayshawn-themed photoshoot Anna, Casie and I did a few weeks ago? The one with all of the gold teef & fake tats that my mom spazzed over?

So meta. Can’t wait to meet my style-icon-for-a-day IN THE FLESH this Friday! That sounds kind of creepy, doesn’t it? “in the flesh“…

It puts the lotion on its skin… KIDDING, GAH.

If you want more information about kray-kray (we girls now, you see. I can call her that), Peep NOW’s interview with Oakland’s finest here or check out the giveaways on Pink Mafia and She Does the City (EVERY good chick is going to be in that room on Friday, I swear).

You could also just Google Kreayshawn – or maybe “Bing” her. I like this viddy. “It just goes to show you the power of the Internet.” – Hollah:

BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE. I think the ones that come with T-shirts are sold out, but that won’t stop me from trying to buy one at the venue. They’re dope as hell, non?

Today felt like TIFFmas, truly. The festival hasn’t even started and already I’m reeling.

Hit two gifting lounges this morning (The Tastemakers Lounge by RockitPromo + EGPR’s Essentials Lounge. Substantial blogposts forthcoming, I swear. Both were dreamy) and got another special delivery at the office! Yesterday, Diet Coke sent something fun. Today, David’s Tea blew my mind:

It was honestly a godsend. So heavenly to step out of a long, hard meeting and find this on my desk. THANK YOU, KING OF THE TEAS!

Post-work, I got my hurrs did by Matthew at Brennan Demelo Studio. He styles many a hot and famous head, plus his beard is awesome. The assistant put a cape on me and I played superhero while he mixed my formula. Up, up and a weirdooooo….

Tomorrow is a huge day. Interviewing a really really really hot guy and then another guy who isn’t quite as hot (hard to be)… then writing and editing all day and late into the night probably. A clothes fitting in there somewhere. An afterparty. Dinner.

I wish life was this crazy every week. It’s hard to understand if you’re not in Toronto – not in that scene – but there’s an energy to TIFF. It’s huge and pretentious and annoying and exciting. Exhausting, but invigorating!

Oh God. I am everything I hate.

Back to the grind…
