Just the other day, a couple of us were talking about converting a loft space into a series of forts. Who knew others would be thinking along the same lines? Booooooom’s contest is simple and ends really soon (October 12th):
“Where The Wild Things Are is filled with references to building a world out of things from your everyday life and that’s exactly what we want you to do!
We want you to create a fort! Use garbage bags, tree branches, tablecloths, prosthetic limbs, wood, gold, whatever you got!”
So you have the weekend to get lifted and make something fun. Doesn’t sound that bad, right? More info on submission and all of that jang, here.

During the filming of a movie, the Sheriff brought Steven in to help train the officers, and it went so well they deputized Steven and he has been a cop ever since. So follow Steven on the streets of Jefferson as he saves the town from evil drug running environmental criminals trying to hijack a train with a nuclear bomb on it. In Steven’s words, “It’s not a Job it’s an Adventure”. One last thing, if you like Steven Seagal you also must like Sausage sandwiches…great ad placement!

Above is Nollywood, a fascinating oversized photo book by Pieter Hugo, published by Prestel, and available at The Strand.
