Ramen Box is Ramen heaven

I used to live across from a family who had a thai housekeeper named Dang.  She would always make these instant noodles called MAMA, they were so good.  I found them here, and I’m happy.

A look through Barry McGee’s Hoss

While digging through a bunch of old books last night, I came across this catalogue for Barry McGee’s Hoss exhibition at Rice University back in 1999.  Sick stuff, Enjoy.

Holy Fuck

Eric Beltz‘s new masterpiece will be displayed at this years Pulse Fair.

I asked Eric what is what about, and this is what he said…

“It’s a witch’s sabbath/rape-sacrifice in a woodlot. Medicinal and the typical witch’s herbs grow around the tree stumps. Fertility, perversion, humor, horror. The text behind the witches refers to the weedy habit of medicinal and psychoactive plants growing where no one is paying attention and how those spaces where weeds grow are also a place for all kinds of anti-social behavior: Where Every Heresy Sprouts & Is Green. The title at the top is written backwards as a simple obfuscation to create a coded language that isn’t all that coded. Hands between the witches are shadow puppets. Monsters hiding in the floating black trees are different depictions of the mouth to hell which might also be seen here at the vagina dentata as their throats are turned into a vagina/cervix.”

Eric will be showing with Morgan Lehman at Pulse, you have to see this beauty in person. Details after the jump

Go Buy Now: El Tono’s Cuadrimetria Chicha Print

Edition of 25
28″ x 40″
50 euros

“These prints are very unique for many reasons.  The “Chicha” posters are traditionally used to announce Cumbia concerts that occur on a weekly basis.  They must be designed and printed quickly to be distributed all over the city as rapidly as possible.  A thin low-quality paper is used to facilitate the ease in which the posters are put up.   Because of this technique there is a notable difference between a silkscreen print produced in the “Chicha” workshop and other  prints produced in a conventional silkscreen workshop used by artists.  These prints, like all silkscreens, are one of a kind,  but the “defects” in the Chicha posters are exceptionally captivating.  There are discrepancies in color, letter form and registry.  This technique used on high quality paper make these imperfections even more interesting.”

That other Lip Stick

This is wild shit.

From the site:

“My New Pink Button ™ is a temporary dye to restore the youthful pink color back to your labia. There is no other product like it. This patent pending formula was designed by a female certified Paramedical Esthetician after she discovered her own genital color loss. While looking online for a solution she discovered thousands of other women asking the same questions regarding their color loss. After countless searches revealing no solution available and a discussion with her own gynecologist she decided to create her own. Now there is a solution!”
