Okay, so I said I'd expound on this, and I should, because it is a post that I always feel like posting, but then I never do...because, you should know this already. HAVING GOOD TASTE DOES NOT MAKE YOU CREATIVE.

Seriously.

Decorating your house is not design. It is decorating. Putting 4,006 fonts on your brochure is not typography. It is STUPID. Buying a painting at Ross does not make you creative. It makes you frugal...and that is commendable, but it is not creative.

I am sick of this crap. Since when did having descriminating taste trump creating the thing in the first place. I don't care if you don't like my soup, bitch, make your own damn soup.

You, that soup thing is a result of watching Gilmore Girls. Damnit.
