When I got home from work the other night I was going through the mail — bill, bill, magazine, Barbie catalog, bill — wait, a Barbie catalog? My curiosity peaked,  I forged on — obscene highlights from The Blonde Collection, a limited run, collector’s dream, include a $9,000 chandelier made of blonde Barbie locks (designed by Project Runway [...]

November 4th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Thanks to this commercial for The New Yorker‘s iPad app, I no longer have to wonder what it’d be like to spend a day with Jason Schwartzman. (I’m happy to report that he’s just as magical as I knew he’d be!) Also, where can I buy the light behind his head in the first scene?

The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose.

August 20th, 2010 · 1 Comment

The Animal Print Shop makes me think of the segment on The Tonight Show when Jay Leno features animal experts. It’s my favorite thing ever. No one ever really knows how the baby lemur will act — will he eat his banana or pretend to pick bugs from Jay’s hair. The unexpectedness of the whole thing draws me in. I imagine while Ms. Montrose [...]

glitsh: j’adore krink.

July 13th, 2010 · No Comments

Last night I got home from work and spent the first hour peering over Ryan’s shoulder as he introduced me to Glitsh — a Swedish artist who dabbles in subversive art. He’s sent artwork to Paris Hilton and Jeffrey Deitch, replaced domino cookies with domino pieces, and modified a Taschen book on Luciano Fontana. Glitsh, [...]

sometimes you need to tag that hide . . .

July 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Unless you live in Texas that is. According to Snapple Real Fact #909, it’s illegal graffiti someone’s cow! Well, it is Texas after all, beef is no joke! (Remember Oprah’s law suit?) Anyway, Ryan tried his hand at tagging the cow’s hide — Moo!  Now, it’s your turn!
