Growing Llardro’s seemed old but, maybe now that I am older I see the appeal. Or maybe Jaime Hayon’s direction changed my mind? This awesome lamp with the gold touch nose activation is very cool.

Them Crooked Vultures have announced their tour dates, and for some strange reason they are not playing NYC. I guess there’s always Philly.  Anyway, look like a long time fan with this T shirt.

feral houses in Detroit

feral-house-detroit

Detroit in its modern state of decay is so intruiging.  It reminds me of those weird towns in Atlas Shrugged, where all that remains is mayhem.  And for Detroit, all that remains are the Lions, Tigers, and Red Wings.

Food + Sex Magazine

food-and-sex-magazine

Ok.

“Collage art food magazine, Food + Sex, is a combined effort of artists, writers, farmers and foodmakers exploring how desire shapes the food environment. By weaving erotic, shocking and thoughtful layers of beauty, wildness and the human spirit, we peer into the fire of hope and fear to find the hidden, seek the cosmic and reflect on the elemental connectedness in life that opens us to new ways of being. Included in its pages are a visual patchwork of uncommon art, essays and excerpts by thinkers, makers and doers from the food underground and beyond.”
