I am like super super late on the uptake, but I just found out
that Miranda July and Mike Mills are dating, and have been since
Mid 2005 (hopefully they still are).

I think they are the most perfect couple I have ever heard of.

Mike Mills (artist and film director [thumbsucker])was featured
in the movie Beautiful Losers that I saw a screening of last
night and he is just so awkwardly adorable, and Miranda July
(performance artist, musician, writer, actress and film director,
[Me and You and Everyone We Know]) is just awkwardly
awesome as well.


I bought this last night.

I think everyone should buy one tomorrow/asap.
It is worth not eating for a week to have enough money for it.


I also bought 2 canvases today. I haven't bought a canvas for my own
enjoyment (meaning outside of a school requirement) in 3 years.
I think I forget how to paint.


Also, as mentioned, I saw a screening of the documentary
Beautiful Losers last night.

Aaron Rose, the director was there to talk about it.
It was pretty decent, and fun to see (on film) the people behind
a lot of artwork that is pretty big these days. It comes out in
limited theaters this summer. I'd recommend seeing it.

Because I don't have ffffound... :'(

All originally seen on ffffound. Click the pics to go to original links (not ffffound).

The little characters on the bottom of this just make me really happy for some reason

Nice little flourish.

Lots of nice photography of Tokyo. Mostly not surreal like this.

Who can resist a smirk like this?

John Waters interview in New York Magazine.


Idea I should sell to an ad firm...

Put something associated with a chosen brand on some sort of awkwardly
shaped object inside of a big clear box, then pay people to walk around
on the streets and ride the subway with it.

Seriously I went home tonight with a chandelier in a big clear box and
everyone was starring at it the whole time on the subway and someone on
the street almost walked into the side of a phone booth trying to
figure out what I was carrying. hah

Not even kidding,

I seriously need this!

New York City Public Toilet Map


This work by David Scheirer is so nice. I really respect anyone who has mastered
their use of watercolours because I am terrible at it.


I also like this portrait by Leesa Leva.

Soo cute! And of course I'm probably like the only person over the age of 5 that'd actually use it too! lol

Also, I think maybe this summer I will make a set of pillows for my bed since I dont have any to go with my newish duvet.

First one will say this (it's a British WWII poster)...

The second one will say "assume nothing" in the typographic style of the tattoo
I designed for my type class last year (can't find a photo at the moment)

And the third, well I guess I'll think on it.


Forget that this is a gold brain mouse for a second.
How awesome of a brand name is "Pat Says Now"?!!

Okay so back to the brain mouse. what?
guarantee my roommate wants this.
