    Regarding the article about resale shops, I always just take my old clothes to charity. There’s one around here that gives free clothes to kids or I drop them off at homeless shelters. In my opinion it’s best to just give the clothes to someone who really needs them.

    why is it that the pig drawing site leads to some virus alert thing?

    That Lady GaGa scarecrow is crazy! Haha!

    Maelynn, I got the same thing about the pig drawing website. My Mac shows a page saying that it’s a suspected malware site.

    Sorry about the pig site, guys! It worked yesterday when I was finishing up this list – not sure why it’s flagged as bad now, but it’s probably for a reason. I’ll take it off the list.

    I feel like the article about Miuccia Prada not being a feminist is a little misleading. She has a doctorate in political science and her thesis was about Kantian Marxism in Europe; I’m sure a lot more can be construed from “nowadays there is no such thing [as a feminist]” than assuming she just isn’t one anymore. And I’m sure she has a LOT more to say about it too.

    I feel like there’s a limit when it comes to how far an artist/designer’s personal beliefs can differ from your own. It’s one thing if they, say, are pro-life and it’s another when they donate a lot of their income and time towards a campaign. Their products will always be a part of them creatively, but is the work they produce necessarily coming from the same place that their politics do? I think that’s the real question.

    Hi, Just a warning to everyone. The pig website is a malware site, my computer is now infected. It comes up with an icon saying a Security Tool is scanning your computer and even if you don’t click on it (which I didn’t because I don’t trust things like that) it starts downloading onto your computer.
    I think Zephyr took it off now, but I thought I’d let you guys know.

    I found the pig test on another website, if you google it other websites have the flash game without any malware. No security warning ever popped up on my windows vista computer, but did on my friend’s mac. No popups came up at all one mine like the person above said…which is weird. Running a virus scanner now but nothing’s been picked up so far!

    Gotta love the internet!
