Two Bunnies, One Cup, Each

My next art installation will be 500 of these arranged in a grid categorically by ear height to recreate the topographical landscape of LA. The Title will be: "There's a hare in my drink, I'd like another."

The Forest of Aokigahara

Sad and powerful.

From Wikipedia's article:
 "The forest, which has a historic association with demons in Japanese mythology, is a popular place for suicides; in 2002, 78 bodies were found, despite numerous signs, in Japanese and English, urging people to reconsider their actions.

Due to the wind-blocking density of the trees, and an absence of wildlife, the forest is known for being eerily quiet"

Effing Ridiculously Good Work

You Win Kanye. Why make art ever again?

P.S. - Story and Direction by Mr. West

The Hermit Kingdom

North Korea's Military parade in Slow Motion from Dan Chung on Vimeo.

Putting the whole think in slow motion takes it to the surreal something about hundreds of legs marching exactly in time becomes incomprehensibly abstract when slowed down.

P.S. - Too latently symbolic not to point out, not the difference between the way the men carry their guns and RPGs and the way the women carry theirs, even Totalitarian regimes aren't able to keep themselves from  falling into Freudian gender tropes.

Erase Me - part 2

Blogged the song a bit back now with an actual video to match.
I'm not sure where these are from, but i started imagining great works and histories redone with all the humans replacd by birds tweet bird noise speeches and orations.

Scuba Fight

I miss Illustrations Like this one from James Bond "Thunderball" Some images just need to exist.

Exploring the Cosmos

EL GUINCHO | Bombay from MGdM | Marc Gómez del Moral on Vimeo.

Amazing Video.  Definitely NSFW, and Potentially Problematic Sexism, but there are so many great images in this for what amounts to a music video it makes me want to quit art.

Drip. Bang.

 Photographer  Alexander Augusteijn takes some amazing high speed photos. It's like two Edgerton images had babies.

P.S. This one is also pretty awesome.

 Crazy complex detail work by Motoi Yamamoto.
These installations are made entirely out of loose salt.


This is far more sentiment then I'm usually prone to, but I like this song.

I Learned Something New.

I was not aware of this usage.

Thanks to Valerie for teaching me something.

I Like the Way This Looks

I don't know anything about this, but I like the way the architecture looks, I like the urban density, and I like the closeness to the Sea.  It could be terrible, but it looks nice.

A Zorse of Course.

An image of a Zorse from a NYTimes article on Hybrids.  Looks like it should be a photoshop job, but it isn't.

Better Lucky than Not.

Near-Death survivals by Luck.  Ridiculously nail-biting.

Wild Things

Really Amazing Photography By unknown Artist.

Much Cooler But NSFW versions after the Jump

Tiny Architecture is Tiny. And Awesome.

If my life goes as planned (Currently filed as Plan#: 427) I'd like to live on a sail boat of the comfortable but not grossly huge size 30-50 ft (used) However, I like the idea of maintaining a small landlubber residence (ideally coastal with nearby dock) This style of home seems perfect, perhaps with an outbuilding with a studio setup. In any case despite my Packrat tendencies, I personally appreciate the benefits of modest sized well designed homes.

P.S. There's also a really cool video of the process of making one of these homes: link

Oh so Pleasant

The Walking Awesome

This is one of the Best, BEST comic series of all time.

So the new television series coming to AMC has a LOT to live up to, but the trailer released today looks extremely promising.

Courage Wolf

Not the newest meme on the web, but like most memes really gets funniest in excessive amounts.

Also he's my hero.

The Redhead has successfully moved in as scheduled. The place seems nice, but it's still a bit early to tell.

A couple more before I go.

I can't get this song out of my head

I like this:

Begin Reboot Cycle...

It's been a while, but now that I live here and 96% of the people who I care about don't, it seemed like the thing to do.

I'm mostly moved in, and thus far the place and the people have been nice. I feel like a bit of a bum essentially wasting time without a job or school, but I have the feeling that in a month I won't have an hour of leisure time in a day, and I'm so excited for that. I've missed school and all the associated stress and pressure.

Until then I'll be living off $ 0.19 Bananas (I bought 20 today) and finding where everything is in the neighborhood.

To Re-Inaugurate this Restart of The Pneumatic Toaster I give you this utterly awesome image:
