This weekend is the 20th Annual International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) at the Javits Convention Center in NYC. If you go (which you should), check out designer, Reiko Kaneko who will be launching a new line of English fine bone china with real gold detailing. Sounds fancy, huh? Well it is but it really isn’t… her take on this fussy stuff is very playful with her gold lipstick marks and tea drips. Take a look at the detailing on the saucer. I’m into it.
If it takes three things to make a trend, then I think we are on to something with my third installment of I AM SPAM…
Janet Nelson is turning penis enhancement SPAM into something for the whole family… good, clean, cartoon fun.
And for the academics, there is SPAM is Poetry dedicated to turning authentic spam into prose. The About page says the site is “a collection of desperate cries for attention from the marketing gutter.”
I guess, I don’t believe in the Ferber Method. Do you?
This little animal is called the Naked Mole-Rat and is from Africa.
So if you are having a bad day and feeling sorry for yourself, remember:
You could look like a dick with buck teeth.
Via J-Rod… who is very clearly the next Tony Robbins.
I do not condone defacing property… in fact, seeing it done brings the crazy, right-winged, (redundant, I know) personality-I-prefer-to-pretend-doesn’t-exist out of me. However, when I find street art done WELL in an appropriate spot, I am not only impressed but I egg it on.
Case in point:
And this wonky-eyed view is actually painted on a construction barricade in Paris.
The $9-$10 million New York City Waterfalls project will bring 4 man-made waterfalls, ranging 90 to 120 feet, to the East River and New York Harbor this summer. Presented by The Public Art Fund, the waterfalls are the creation of Danish–Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.
The falls will be located under the Brooklyn Bridge, between Brooklyn’s Piers 4 and 5, near Pier 35 in Manhattan, and off Governors Island. They’ll be visible from several points in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Governors Island, as well as from both The Circle Line Downtown and New York Water Taxi which is scheduled to offer several different guided tours for a close-up view.
The city projects tourism revenues to increase by $55 million during the waterfalls’ duration which is great… but honestly, the only waterfall that seems at all cool is the one under the Brooklyn Bridge (image at the top) as the other look like falling back down out of thin air (like below). A concept that is more like a fountain sprouting out of the middle of the river than a waterfall. How random is that?
