Move over suzie, another obsession of mine is chapstick, or maybe the need for it. Anyway this little tube for Clarks Botanicals looks cool and it works. And they have a really great logo.
And if thats not enough here’s the tear-jerker story behind the product…
“Clark’s Botanicals was born out of tragedy when company founder Francesco Clark, who then worked at Harper’s Bazaar, suffered a crippling spinal cord injury in a swimming pool diving accident on June 1, 2002.
With his central nervous system impaired, Francesco lost the ability not only to walk, but even to sweat. This led to clogged pores and chronic breakouts. When neither over-the-counter nor prescriptive remedies worked, he turned to his father, Dr. Harold Clark, a physician trained in both traditional Western medicine and homeopathy.
Together they developed botanically-based formulas that effectively rebalanced Francesco’s skin, clearing it up entirely. Through word-of-mouth, other people discovered and fell in love with these products, and in 2005, Francesco began selling Clark’s Botanicals on his website: www.clarksbotanicals.com”

I used to have a board game similar to this called Trafficking in college. Needless to say, it was never played because it was way too difficult and we were pretty lazy.I definitely dig the write up:Leave Doobietown, USA and journey to an intriguing port of call, score caches of dope and return home anxious to sell. Sounds simple, and it is — as long as karma, skill, and the roll of the dice are on your side, and you don’t get hassled at any borders, ripped off by your partner, or busted. Yeh, busted. Lots of dealers go to jail. Yes, dealing is a high risk/high gain situation. Remember, all dealers play hard, but they don’t all play fair. When in doubt, ask yourself what McDope would do if he were there.Available at Last Gasp
I caught this little blurb in Page Six yesterday “44-year-old supermodel Elle Macpherson is dating Vito Schnabel, the sexy 21-year-old art dealer son of acclaimed director Julian Schnabel.” Fuck. Seriously, good for this kid. See the opportunities you are given when you are born into some type of celebrity household.

Just as the Enablist did weeks ago, Shepard now advises you to buy a print by Cleon Peterson. Listen up, the man is that good and maybe if we are lucky he’ll produce 5 more prints to mimic his installations.Back to Shepard. Today is Super Tuesday, and for those who vote it is an important day. What will be interesting to gauge is how Obama will fair in California, the state where Shepard unleashed his poster campaign in support of the candidate. If only there was an exit poll asking if their vote was influenced by Shepard’s poster. The tally would be something like, 18 – 42 year olds stated yes, while the geezers were still color blind. Whatever will be, will be.
