touch it

delta-touch-faucet

The Delta Pilar pull-down kitchen faucet with Touch2O is a very cool marriage of tech and function.  You do not have to turn a knob or twist a handle, just tap the top of the faucet and it’s on and running. Tap it again and it’s off. So when your hands are dirty as sh@t, all you need to do is give your faucet a elbow. Very cool.

I just saw this over at Dezeen. A stuffed Victorian african grey crowned crane, decorated with a saddle, gold-plated silver and pearls. It looks really cool. So, if you’re in London be sure to check out Kelly McCall ‘s “Fuck You and the Horse You Rode in On” a new exhibition at Sotheby’s this week.

Shepard Fairey Tuesday: “A very different kind of portrait”

Wendy Wick Reaves, curator at the National Portrait Gallery, breaks down Shepard Fairey’s Obama Hope piece in this new video from the National Portrait Gallery. I would’ve never thought of Oriental Orange as a color until now. Wendy could tuck me in and describe all the artwork on my walls to me nightly. You go curator lady!  Now to whoever did the camerawork and editing, better luck next time.

The Jackson Three….WTF

So there has been a lot of press about Joe Jackson promoting whatever it is he is doing, every time he gets in front of the mic. This is the best one yet.

“Joe Jackson wants to take kids on tour in 2010. Michael Jackson’s biographer says he plans to call them The Jackson Three.”
