We’ve been enthralled by Filippo Minelli’s ethereal work before. But we only recently realised that he was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2010. With his immune system taking a hit from chemotherapy, he was barred from meeting anyone and had to use his iPhone to communicate with friends and family.
Which is when he started a blog and posted snapshots of his time in hospital with text, juztapozed with lines that are entertainingly wry, insightful and simply great. May it be known that we’ll never look at vodka sour the same way again.
Things happen. Even if your brand new iPhone is all smashed up it still keeps 72% of its value. Heck, you can drop it in the toilet and it’s still worth a good chunk of change. There is little need to live in fear and smother your phone with protective measures. There is entire ecosystem that takes broken phones and makes them whole again, so prices of broken phones aren’t even that low. You don’t walk around with a bumper case around your head and that’s pretty valuable. If you’re phone breaks, you can just fix it. It will be okay.
