...is friggin huge. O_o. Definitely broke in the sneakers! whew. Also, holy god, Williamsburg is full of hipsters. D: Terrifying.

I didn't get anything at the fair per se (though I did pick up another sundress from the Buffalo Exchange nearby), but I did come away with a ton of business cards for things. So in a giant note these down for later/support your not-so-local artisan post (and also in the interests of sharing), here's what I saw today.

  • Giant Dwarf - had these giant felt flower headbands. The red one looks rather superfantastic with the dreads.

  • Charlie and Sarah - Printed T-shirts and stuff with "british" vocabulary words and pictures on them; my favorite were the underpants that said "knickers"

  • The Cherry Box - Specifically, the plushkill forest. I think [livejournal.com profile] labmouse's default icon is from there.

  • Folded Pigs - I like the idea of repurposed dinnerware. I'm not so sure about the pieces with roaches printed on them.

  • Moth designs - big colorful designs on tshirts and other stuff, with a bit of arabic vocabulary printed on it too.

  • Ellembee - More really pretty, elegent printed t-shirts; my favorite was this one.

  • Fisk and Fern - printmaking, illustration and collage.

  • Hero Design Studio - when I move back, can someone get me this poster as a housewarming present? It's sooooooooo cute... and it glows in the dark!

  • Ex Libris Anonymous - journals made from used books and library discards. I actually found a couple in their bin that I used to have as a kid!


All of this makes me really want to get my beads out of storage and crank out some of the ideas I've had past few months.

In other news, saw this guy playing the at Union Square earlier today. Its funny how many subway musicians have myspace music these days. I can't find the song he was actually singing today, but I do like "Indian." He's apparently at this point an institution on that particular L platform. Not to self, find him again and pick up a CD.

again, big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ggirl for providing the excuse to get out of the house.

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

American photographer Thomas Allen constructs witty and clever dioramas using figures cut from the covers of old pulp paperbacks. Using salacious pulp art drawing’s of the ’40s and ’50s that covered books such as ” I Married a Dead Man” and ” Marihuana Girl’, Allen constructs one set of pictures up close while obscuring another, and in the process creates a different context. Each piece is given a brand new storyline, though never quite strays from their cheeky origins.

you can see the rest here.

[livejournal.com profile] _kyri is today's Champion of the Internet for linking to taskbar shuffle. I never understood why you couldn't just drag and drop your taskbar buttons in whatever order you wanted. NOW I CAN!

Yeah yeah, it's the little things, lol.

May I present The Wrong Brand?

I must say, the ebay.com one actually got me for a second. But the Saks Fifth Avenue? WANT. That's just wrong.

I hope these guys come out with more.

Take a bunch of youtube vids, mash em up, remix them, and if you're damn lucky and talented you might get something like this.

THRU-YOU: Kutiman Mixes YouTube

This shit is tight.

I just spent/wasting an hour browsing the various "missions" executed by ImprovEverywhere, as I was looking for info on the annual No Pants Subway Ride and got stuck watching the vids for High Five Escalator, Human Mirror, and Frozen Grand Central

I think I seriously heart these guys.
kjpepper: (winter holiday)

I might have to do this in December. I love this sort of "For no reason other than it's funny" shit.

There are Santacons all over the damn place if you want to do it next winter too. :)
kjpepper: (dot dot dot)

Presenting Brief Jerky. Yes, those are underpants. made out of beef jerky. And Bedazzled.

This by the way, is the ultra feminine version. There's one for guys too.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] twolumps_feed for warping my fragile little mind this morning.
kjpepper: (LOL (eve))
seeing this just about made my morning.

For those of you that don't know, the [livejournal.com profile] murder_burger blog brings the hilarity. (Murder Burger being one of those "only in fucking New Zealand which is why I'd totally live there" restaurant chains a la Hell Pizza)

In other news, I think I'm going to be internetting it in today - the work backlog has calmed down a bit, and there is so much to do here that I'm thinking it might just be the better part of valor to stay and dig myself out from under it all.
kjpepper: (lol internet)
This is actually cool in a weird sort of way. (WS)

I could get behind this sort of thing. Course you know the next step is making electronic cigarettes that are compatible with that iPhone/iPod lighter app...
kjpepper: (Default)

C'mon, sugar, let me know.

May go see this on Wednesday.

OMG squee

so [livejournal.com profile] masteradept, in his endless quest to keep my StumbledUpon inbox full, sent me this painting:

Completely ignoring the fact that this picture made my ovaries want to claw their way out of my abdomen and into my monitor in an attempt to NOM this kid's cheeks, I'd just like to point out that HOLY CRAPZORZ, I am teh subway nerd. There are 26 lines in the NYC subway system and just from glancing at this I could narrow it down to five possible lines this kid's riding. (F, A, R, E or G.... and come to think of it I think the L.)

I'd put money on the F though.

This is the artist, btw if anyone's intereste. Really nice work overall.

We have a Watkins catalog in our bathroom. This morning I ran across this.

Watkins Meat MagicMeat Magic

Article No. 01168

Brings out natural meat flavors; helps prevent shrinkage and promote tenderness by sealing in meat's natural juices. One bottle enhances more than 30 pounds of meat. (325mL/11 fl. oz.)

US $9.99


Also for the lulz, the Canada French translation of "Meat Magic." (visible if you squint hard)

via [livejournal.com profile] nounsandverbs: An Open Letter to Kellogg's. I just snarfed my coffee... and I JIZZED IN MY PANTS.

I think I'm in agreement with most of the Internet on the whole ONOES MICHAEL PHELPS SMOKING POT thing, and especially with [livejournal.com profile] bellarisa, who had this to say about it (for those of you who missed it on [livejournal.com profile] metaquotes last week): "If I'd trained the way he did for as long as he did and accomplished what he did, I'd be smoking the world's finest weed through a diamond encrusted Godiva chocolate bong that also made bacon. Leave the boy alone."

Of course, this just sticks the concept of chocolate covered weed bacon into my brain in such a way that it refuses to come out.

I half wonder if there's going to be a rash of Michael Phelps cereal boxes on eBay now.

This has got to be the best web toy I've played with in a while.


It wouldn't let me save either of mine, but hey that's what the PRINT SCREEN key is for.

and the slightly nsfw one, tee hee hee )

This is a thought provoking read about how Michelle's portrayal in the media has tended to ignore her numerous professional accomplishments and focus instead on her more traditional (and therefore less Hillaryesque threatening) roles as mother and fashion maven.

It's gonna be really interesting to see what she makes of being First Lady.

So at ass o'clock this morning while I was poking around the nets with StumbleUpon, I found directions for how to make a bouquet of roses out of autumn leaves. Clearly I had to try this, so this morning while coming home from an errand I stopped under some of the neighborhood maple trees and and grabbed up some of the stragglers.

Not bad for a first effort, I don't think.

The link with the directions is here, by the way. The one I made took me about half an hour total, leaf gathering time included.
