Entering the Blobosphere: A Musing on Blobs

Entering the Blobosphere: A Musing on Blobs boldly suggests blobs are the unsung, yet integral link in our language to build upon and describe ideas, culture, and knowledge. The common perspective of the blob is an amorphous form with an otherwise gooey texture, however, this is a gross undermining of the power of language and the vivacity of blobs. Fueled by the speculati ...more

This was just utter nonsense.

The concept of examining blobs has some intellectual and artistic merit, but this author never tried that. Instead she decided to publish her silly notes about her thoughts. There's virtually no way for a reader to connect with this, nor did the author attempt to create a universal concept or theme that would be relatable. On top if it, the artwork was so small it was practically invisible.

My apologies to the author for the criticism, I know it seems harsh. I just f

I so wanted to like this but it just felt like more style than substance.

I know Laura through her time at CU and this book seems to fit the person. A flashy, superficial, narcissistic read that is notable only in the fact that it exists. Cool. Blob-on.

(and, yes, for those that think this is unfair, the woman has some serious delusions of grandeur, is passively racist, and has a tendency to belittle others. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of her and her "work")

Just finished reading this and my mind is all ablob. Although I might not recommend this if you're in the market for blobisticated blobbings and intricately dictated blobosophy on the blobilontogical significance of the blob is our precarious blobiverse, I would (and do) recommend as a gigantic blob of associative blobworks of thinking, and for interesting pairings and speculative thinking from blobists, blobentists, and blobosophers that culminate in an exciting, and hilarious blobifesto that s ...more

“A blob is a subtle deconstruction of preconceptions.” This playful book is a philosophical musing on blobs, their formlessness, their many potentials, their mutations — complete with playfully revised quotes from famous writers to turn them into quotes about blobs. Basically the book came about when @diddioz, one of the partners in the literary venture @the5accomplices, ran across Laura’s work in a gallery and got in touch with her. The blob obsession is catching , since blob is such a versatil ...more

Stumbled across this book doing research and was super excited to dive in, but...it. was. just. sooooooo. empty. I mean, there just wasn't really anything being said. Drawings next to artist/author (real author) quotes, all interspersed with Ms. Kim's musings. I don't know her or her work, and I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but it all just came off as self-important. 2/10. Can't really recommend. Sad face. ...more

There's a sort of frenetic energy in the presentation that pulled me in, but after that faded there wasn't much left. The idea of blobs as an object, a theory, an undefined mass, holds value, but that wasn't explore here. It's was basically the sentence "The idea that blob hold value as an object, a theory, an undefined mass, etc" pounded over your head for 90 or so pages. What could have been an email was a book (altho, can you even call it a book?) ...more
