Images from Italy

Five years ago I was 25, spending time in Italy trying to sort out what the hell I wanted to do with my life.  I came to NY.  While sorting through files this weekend, I came across a bunch of touristy images from that period of my life.  Enjoy.

This is beautiful. Japanese design studio Nendo, created a chair made of hollowed-out pieces of wood covering a metal frame.  The legs of the chair are only 15 mm in diameter. For more details and photos checkout Dezeen.

Talk at me with Anita & Neil

i-eat-pussy

In this feature, two of our favorite people, Neil Anblomi and Anita Goodman, ask each other important questions.

This week, Neil asks Anita:

Neil:There is this chick who works at a local cafe by my office. One day whilst talking to her she told me that guys with tattoos are her biggest turn on.  I have kept my body  ink free, just in case I want to get buried in a Jewish cemetery (you never know) but now I’m considering getting one to pique her interest.  I’m thinking some type of tribal arm band, or maybe a Japanese character on my fore arm.  I’m so excited just writing about it!  Any advice?

Richard Colman’s got a Snowboard

richard-colman-monument-snowboard

Truth be told, The Enablist has never been on a ski mountain in his life.  If I ever was to go on one, I would probably ride a snowboard down the hill and this would be the snowboard I would ride.  Monument x Richard Colman.  Boo ya.  I also like the fact that Monument has DC’s flag as its web icon, Chocolate City.

Say What? No Flu Shots, thanks

The whole backwards and running thing is what trips me out.

This Saw is apparently Amazing

The Jointmaker Pro R2

We’re not too hip on hardware, so we asked our resident expert to explain.

“First, it requires no power at all.  Second the cuts are as accurate as you can get, and the kerf is less than 2mm.. You can’t cut off your fingers, and it makes virtually no noise.  You could literally build an entire dining set in your apartment without anyone ever hearing you, with minimal sawdust to boot.  ZAP”

From the Plate of Roger Gastman

Eat the Green one! Eat it!
I wouldn’t know what time of year it was if I didn’t go into a bakery every once in awhile to see how the cookies are decorated.
