Perfection. Perfection. Perfection.

When I first read Charlotte Gainsbourg and Beck were making a duet album,

I was excited and then nervous. Stomach butterfly nervous.

"Heaven Can Wait" does not disappoint.

Mark your calendars, their album, IRM, comes out January 26th.

Phun. With a capital "PH".

This could entertain me (maybe it has) for hours. Check it out here. This site does the same thing for me, mindless time suckage.

Old School Electric Company by The Electric Company & Carmen D’Avino. This inspired me to break out my Electric Company box set. I had forgotten how much I love that show, lots of happy memories.

Twin brothers and designers, R&E Praspaliauskas, designed a collection of bread shoes. There are still some available here.

people with giant heads are smarter.

I think there's even proof somewhere. And I think that makes Eric Testroete some sort of genius.
His Halloween costume this year was a Papercraft Self Portrait. He constructed it using 3ds Max 2009, Mudbox 2010, Photoshop CS3, Pepakura and other software, way ambitious.

dress your family in socks.

I have a striped sock addiction.
I buy them for myself.
My husband.
My daughter.
I cannot buy enough of them.
When I saw these,
it was like stumbling upon
a two pound brick of pure columbian cocaĆ­na.
But oh Gallo Socks,
you say that you're available at Barneys,
but alas you are not.
You amazing Italian sockmakers, why do you tease?!

Cakeland, a sculptural installation, is a complete cake environment. Cakes are "wall mounted, hanging and standing-- a walk-through cake environment complete with its own lighting."
Artist, Scott Hove (a fellow Oaklander, Cakeland is on Shattuck & 55th or so), describes it as "a respite from the grinding realities of the outside world".

Sadly, they are not edible.

deer heads out. headphone birds in.

"EGG I-III" (2008)
in private collection (france)
MICKEY (2009)
taxidermy rat, felt
15 x 15 x 30 cm
forged iron, headphones (hearing protection), two parrot heads
25 x 23 x 10 cm

It seems the whole taxidermy craze may have hit it's tipping point.
But this stuff beats the hell out of a cardboard deer head from Urban Outfitter.

Here's a blurb out these guys, "The artist duo Idiots , made up by Afke Golsteijn and Floris Bakker, is characterized by the use of animal material that is carefully patched up and put into significant positions, combined with rich materials such as embroidery, pearls and gold. A contemporary touch is given to the classical memento mori concept, questioning the way the world nowadays seems to be determined by nothing else than just marketing. In a constantly twisting play between fantasy and reality Idiots emphasizes the borderline between life and death."
