Outkast, Benz or Beamer, 1995
On top of being like kindergarten for adults, a Studio Art major will have you satiated in no time. And by the looks of Art Lovers, it will be awesome.
In related news, maybe OTTO should major in art?
I noticed this chair the other day at Georgia Tapert Living in Soho. Designed by Charles Constantine, the chair is crafted from Solid Maple and Natural Rubber and—given the look—is surprisingly comfortable to sit in. More information here and here.
Our friends in Brooklyn woke us up with an email this morning regarding new prints and originals, as well as a fresh new website. Faile gets colorful, that’s for sure. A lottery has been set up over the next two days, winners will have the chance to purchase work. I wish I wasn’t on a moratorium, because I would love for this piece above to adorn one of my walls. More info after the jump.
This Friday, Tattoo Culture in Williamsburg will host artwork from Dan Witz and -mar-.The opening reception is this Friday Mar. 20th from 7-10pm. Sponsored by Coney Island Lager. Who knew Coney Island had a beer?
Happy Drunken Irish Day!
The NY Times ran an article on making cocktails with Irish Whiskey and provided one recipe from Anthony Malone at Puck Fair.
Adapted from Puck Fair
1 ounce Bushmills Irish whiskey
1/2 ounce cherry liqueur
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed orange juice
1 whole egg.
Combine ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake very vigorously, for at least 10 seconds, to emulsify the egg. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Yield: 1 serving
It sounds good but, I’d rather have mine in a shot glass.
If memory serves me correct, the imagery for this print first appeared in an enormous way this past February at Shepard Fairey’s ICA retrospective. Luckily for the public, the decision has been made to turn this into a print that will be available for purchase this Thursday, March 19th at 12pm EST. On the obvious tip, is it just me or is this the closest Shepard Fairey has ever gotten to looking like Georgia O’Keefe?
*Ed’s note: And by O’Keefe, I mean a lady coming out of a vagina.
I could use one of these in the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen…basically everywhere. Designed by Martin Smith and manufactured by Lakingland, the Applause machine comes in Black, White, Green, Red, and Orange. Each color is in an edition of 250.

William Buzzell opened a new solo show at Paul Bright Gallery in Toronto last week. Titled Contact High: Study Aids and Other Drawings, the show features 20 works that use a combination of found wood and latex house paint with the classic wit we have come to know through Buzzell’s work. All pieces are affordably priced, so click on over to the gallery’s website and have a look for yourself. A couple favorites after the jump.
Jenny Holzer’s retrospective PROTECT PROTECT opened at The Whitney last week and in a smart membership ploy, the Museum is offering up these limited-edition tee’s to anyone who becomes a member through the 31st of May. So, this is basically a $75 t-shirt with free museum admission for a year.
Remember, GOOD DEEDS ARE EVENTUALLY REWARDED.
“It actually whips up flour, water, tomato sauce and fresh ingredients to produce a piping hot pizza in about three minutes.”
The only flaw I see in this is turnover. What happens if 10 people want pizza? No way I would wait in line for 30 – 40 minutes to get a small pie.
Dr. Martens recently launched its For Life Collection. Looking for something to last? The economy sucks but your docs don’t. Here’s the deal…..
“The For Life range reinforces classic 8-Eye and 3-Eye in a total of 7 colors with some technical reinforcements. The new line is Goodyear welted with upper and sole sewn instead of glued together. The upper is made from Hardlife leather through drum stuffing, a process which saturates the leather with water-resistant waxes instead of merely coating the surface. The brand also added thickness to the inner core of the sole to increase its durability. The best part about this collection? Lifetime guarantee to cover damages caused by wear and tear for these shoes. They are now available at the For Life Collection microsite.”
