Yesterday, I kind of fell down a major DIY rabbit hole. No, I wasn’t actually doing Do-It-Yourself projects all day; I was just reading about them on the internet. I tend to file DIY projects in three categories: 1) cool projects I would do if I had the time (a custom headboard made from scrap wood!) 2) stupid projects I would never waste my time on (why would I make my own laundry soap?), and 3) cool projects I actually DO have the time for. I came across this particular trick on the blog Obsessionist, and while it’s not exactly DIY, it’s still cool and not time-consuming. Because who doesn’t want to know how to make scrambled eggs still in the shell, especially when all you really need is a pair of stockings?! [Obsessionist] Keep reading »
When I think of how many hours I sunk into playing Super Mario Land on my Nintendo Game Boy, and what other, more productive things I could have been doing with those hours, I feel a little ill. (And that was only a few years ago, when I toted the game to Italy with me and played it at night before bed instead of having sex with my boyfriend!) I’ve since lost my Game Boy and the guy, but occasionally I get a little nostalgic and wish I could get sucked down pipes into other worlds, where I stomp mushrooms and avoid nasty piranha plants. But because I am an adult, I think I will just wear these earrings and go about my business.
Illustrator Kyle Hinton creates paper dolls based on his favorite TV characters, and man does he have good taste. He’s paper-ized the cast of “Arrested Development” and “Breaking Bad” and now he’s tackling “Parks And Recreation”. This little Ron Swanson is so perfect, from his well-groomed mustache to the turkey leg accessory. Check out Kyle’s website to print him out. (Bonus: it’s free!) [Flannel Animal] Keep reading »

, I have a predilection for skater dudes. And so when I saw this video starring pro skateboarder Kilian Martin skating in a variety of hot fashions from Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani and John Varvatos, I felt it was my duty to share. [Definitive Touch

From Hello Kitty and Wonder Woman to RuPaul and Rodarte, MAC collaborations have pretty much run the gamut from one side of the weird/kooky/cool pop culture spectrum to the other. Just last week, the cosmetics company announced that Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin (interestingly enough) would represent the brand in their 2012 Viva Glam campaign. The kitsch factor runs high with MAC, and seems to underlie almost every project they take on (the Disney Venomous Villians collection?). And that sense of humor definitely shows through in its newest collaboration with off-kilter-but-awesome American photographer Cindy Sherman, whose daring, conceptual self-portraits question and challenge the way women are portrayed — and often stereotyped — in society.
