Obama Wants To Try Bobak Ferdowsi’s Famous NASA Mohawk

“I understand there is a special mohawk guy working on the mission. I thought about getting a mohawk myself but my team keeps on discouraging me. Now that he’s received marriage proposals and thousands of Twitter followers, I’m now going to go back to my team and see if it makes sense.”

–President Barack Obama confesses his funky hair aspirations in a congratulatory phone call with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab. Yep, even the commander-in-chief has joined the Bobak Ferdowsi Fan Club (of which we Amelia and I are co-presidents). And now, thanks to brilliant Twitter user @darth, we know exactly how Obama would look with the Bobak mohawk. I think he totally pulls it off. How about you? [The Atlantic]

New Life Goal: Take A Leisurely Nap At IKEA

If you’ve ever been to IKEA, you’ve probably wandered into one of the elaborately staged bedrooms or living rooms, plopped down on a bed or couch and pretended–if just for a moment–that you lived there. In China, IKEA customers are taking this idea to a whole new level: they kick off their shoes, tuck themselves in, and take long, leisurely naps right there in the store. Apparently this has been a normal occurrence since the furniture chain first opened in China, but it gained worldwide attention after a blogger snapped photos of people catching Z’s in a Nanjing IKEA. Click through to check out the pics, but be warned: you will totally want to snuggle into a reasonably priced bed for a nap afterwards… [Oddity Central]

At first glance, this grilled cheese cookie sandwich looks, well, let’s go with “disconcerting.” I mean, the melted orange cheese between two chocolate chip cookies? It’s weird. It’s unexpected. It’s…delicious? Yep, according to its creator, Chef Stef of The Cupcake Project, this hybrid confection is the ultimate dessert: a perfect union of sweet and salty, gooey and crunchy. She even developed a second version that’s cooked on a hot griddle. I’m ready to give it a try. How about you? [Neatorama]

My favorite craft projects involve taking a very ordinary material and transforming it into something totally unexpected. For example, maybe you take 10 washers (you know, those round discs found at hardware stores), paint them with a bright nail polish, and create a very of-the-moment geometric bib necklace that would look right at home in the pages of a high fashion magazine. So cool. Click here to learn how. [By Wilma]

I am not very good at being a hipster. Sure, I own a few pairs of wayfarers and I’ve been known to see movies ironically, but I’ve never thought of myself as “cool” and I really, really hate PBR (am I suffering from Hipster Denial Disorder? Most likely). Even so, when I plopped all my favorite indie/emo/electro-dance songs into one playlist, I fell in love with the results. I’m sure real hipsters will dismiss most or all of these artists as too mainstream, but you’ve gotta admit–it’s a great mix for getting stuff done around the house or, you know, brooding and illustrating your graphic novel. Enjoy, my dears!

The Spice Girls Are Back And They’re Straddling Bedazzled Cabs!

You guys, look, it’s actually happening! This right here is photographic proof that the Spice Girls are hard at work rehearsing for their triumphant reunion performance at the Olympics closing ceremonies on Sunday. Titled “A Symphony of British Music,” the show will also include Adele, Muse, and members of The Who, The Kinks, and Pink Floyd. All the other acts are fine and good, but I mean, really, does it get any more British than Posh, Ginger, Scary, Sporty, and Baby rolling into the stadium on bedazzled cabs, flanked by dapper men in suits? Cheers! [Buzzfeed]
