petri-dish gardens from pruned one of my favorite blogs. its about landscape architecture, but it offers some of the coolest eye candy on the net.

an item listed on Ebay. a chicken bone in the shape of a crucifixion photographed on a trash bag. i call it the "crucificken". an amazing art photograph by accident.

Lately i've been seeing a ton of "donks" on the street. Mostly late 70's rides like impalas and cutlasses on big rims with flashy paint-jobs. seems like a lot of the paint jobs have product themes like "Fruit Loops" or "Reese Cup" er, on second thought, maybe this is a "box". one thing's for sure it ain't no "bubble". whatever, it's the "illest" thing on the road. *howl* i really like this photo too. the way the figure looks and the blast of fade out light, blur and the monumental shadow.

a group of 18 UK artists were asked to create dart boards with the thing they "most hated" on it. This one was my favorite.

this tattoo shows real commitment.
i have always thought the alien harvest of earthly beings was one of the best horror story lines.

unless you're a lib, and then it's a karmic dream fantasy come true. grrrherhaha

how about this sub-woofer. get it? woofer! Created by Buro Vormkrijgers, a Dutch design studio. next up: the bird shaped "tweeter".

and now to finish with some samples from one of my favorite daily stops: the hubble space telescope astronomy picture of the day. my favorites are deep space galaxy shots:

i think of these as the ultimate in "religious" painting. /fin

/t: im trying to imagine the scenario where first the fabulous bone is determined to be a great offerring for ebay. then the arrival at the idea photographing it on wrinkled up trash bag. ever step of the way it qualifies as a real "curiousity". not only that, it would completely at hoem in ArtNews magazine...and well reviewed at that. glad you liked it. (it IS for sale you know, but i bet sans bag)

anon: you mean the one who took my liver?

Kate: its just a joke on Bono. int not actual "hate"
i think its a joke about the ubiquitous sunglasses...or the ubiquitous bono.

yes we have a date. do you know where julies waterfront it? is on south orange just past michigan about a mile or two. i like it that it is a nice outdoor hangout without being a chain, great food. very easy. unless you have a better idea. i am open. will send you an email soon....im up in the north georgia mountians (chickory's) and forgot my computers charger.

When the kids were little- at their b-day parties we usually played "Pin the Tail on the Donkey"- but I always put a cut out face of someone on the donkey- mostly to shock my mother in law.

Al Gore was my favorite.

The kids thought it was a riot.
Even so, I never put Clinton up there...he was the President and there was a limit to how disrespectful I wanted to be.

Hillary would be a different matter though

when i first saw that bone photo, it flummoxed me, i thought it was high art, i did not read it was chicken bone right away.

having the photo on garbage bag is better than real life bone i think.

there is a limerick contest??

I was too busy scoring an A on my paper to notice

it is ON girl....
