Watching movies is a hobby of every man, woman, and child on Earth, but watching those movies on your 27″ tube television set you still have from 1989 doesn’t really capture the action like it should. So with the holidays creeping up, maybe you can score one of these movie theaters as a Christmas gift from your girlfriend, hint hint. Chances are that won’t happen so enjoy the eye candy.
Hey zooters, sorry for the lack of material today, but like the other 90% of the population today, we are hung over as a son of a bitch. On Thanksgiving you have a lot more than just food. Today you will have 5 hours of painful conversation about your shitty career path, and a constant reminder that your still single from your diaper wearing grandma. On top of that you get to have all the dirty things you did the night before run through your mind like tornadoes, while talking to your grandpa about World War II. My suggestion is you chug a bottle of wine and say you are feeling tired, but swear it isn’t because you are hung over, blame it on the tur-ta-ta-tur-tur-ta turkey. Yes it does make you fall asleep, it is not a myth. Turkey contains a naturally occurring amino acid called tryptophan. In fact, all poultry meat contains tryptophan. A normal turkey dinner will contain mere micrograms of tryptophan, though, and this is about the average for all poultry meats, so there’s nothing particularly special about the tryptophan levels in turkey specifically. The real reason people fall asleep is because A. they just ate 8 times the normal food intake in one sitting and B. they want to get out of horrible conversations. So in reality you can bottle up turkey and sell it to frat guys as a date rape drug if your getting low on cash, those silly meat heads will buy anything to get them laid. Thank you all for the support and we really are thankful for all your comments and emails. Now kick your feet up, watch some football, and have some terrible conversations. O.J. Simpson take it away.

We love food and we love art, so when the two come together it makes for delicious imagery. The talented Ed Bing Lee has mastered the art of the knot for our enjoyment. For over 25 years, the Philadelphia based artists uses a basic macrame knot to create pieces that look like food in his delectable series. As long as your not making mittens and granny blankets knitting is still cool when practiced properly.
Planestupid.com recently came out with a new advertisement depicting the harmful chemicals European planes release into the atmosphere every flight. I applaud the production and the visualization, but it has an eerily similar feel to the World Wildlife spot we featured back in September, in other words we could do without the uncomfortable (intentional or not) allusions to 9/11. The point the company is trying to make is that on average every European flight produces about 400 kg of greenhouse gases for every passenger, which is equivalent to the weight of an adult polar bear. So they are trying to depict each flight releases like 80 polar bears worth of poisonous gas into the atmosphere. Well, whatever makes people aware of our usual environment crushing ways is cool with us, even if it’s a little extreme. On the other hand if your little brother was attacked and killed by polar bears during your trip to Antarctica last winter, you are going to give this video a standing ovation.
Don’t really know if this is adult lego art or just someone on photoshop messing with the pixels, but either way we want to see more life sized naked models of babes available for purchase in our local Toys R Us. As seen in our posts in the past you can create just about anything using Lego’s, from jewelry to cars, so why stop there. When creating something with Legos it immediately becomes an interesting art peice. I tried recreating a life sized model of Halle Berry using my old Lincoln Logs but it didn’t come out too well to say the least, maybe I’ll give Angelina Jolie a try using Legos.
Virtual Wall is an innovative device that makes it safer for pedestrians to cross the road by projecting laser images when the red traffic light is on. Designed by Hanyoung Lee, the goal is to heighten driver and pedestrian awareness and to encourage both to follow the crosswalk rules. Since I always have to find the negative in everything, that’s just what I do, I had one question. What happens when you need to make a right turn on red? Do sirens start wailing when you blow through the red lasers? Does your car get fried into a pile of dust? Questions I don’t have the answer to, but the concept is genius regardless, especially when a pedestrian is getting Joe Blacked by a taxi cab every 9 minutes in New York City.
Modern meets abstract meets stunning art. Graphic artist Geraldine Georges mixes her collections of illustration, photography, and mixed media to hit all the right spots. Her work – often abstract of the female form – captures the eye and imagination. Influences of fashion and couture flow through out her wonderful pieces. Geraldine recently held her first very successful solo show in Brussels as well as her work recently being printed in a number of leading design & style magazines. She was also recently spotlighted in the New York Post. You can find more of her work at her website seen here.
Forget about 24″ chrome rims, and defiantly forget about spinners that were cool for about 3 seconds, actually forget about rims as a whole. How would your motorcycle look with hubless wheels? Well The biker boys at Amen Design think it looks pretty awesome and we have to agree. Based on Franco Sbarro’s hubless wheels, they have created a chopper which comes with increased braking leverage, more accurate steering, decreased unsprung weight, reduced structural stress and other advantages. It looks like an optical illusion but we can assure you it’s real, another example of less is more.
Kris Kuksi was born March 2, 1973, in Springfield Missouri and growing up in neighboring Kansas, Kris spent his youth in rural seclusion and isolation along with a blue-collar, working mother, two much-older brothers and an absent father. Open country, sparse trees, and alcoholic stepfather, perhaps paved the way for an individual saturated in imagination and introversion. His fascination with the unusual lent to his macabre art later in life. The grotesque to him, as it seemed, was beautiful. Reaching adulthood his art blossomed and created a breakthrough of personal freedom from the negative environment experienced during his youth. He soon discovered his distaste for the typical American life and pop culture, feeling that he has always belonged to the ‘Old World’. Yet, Kris’ work is about a new wilderness, refined and elevated, visualized as a cultivation emerging from the corrupt and demoralized fall of modern-day society. A place were new beginnings, new wars, new philosophies, and new endings exist. text via Kris Kuksi
His sculptures are so detailed that every little inch of the piece captures a different act.

One of these would be the iconic point of your home, having visitors be able to stare at it for hours in awe of the intricacy of the sculpture.
