  In the new year we all stock up on new supplies: organizers, planners, and the usual calendar. Lauren Marsella sent us a neat little calendar today that's a bit unconventional, funny, and snarky. Instead of typical photos of puppies or canonical art pieces, Marsella has drawn portraits of dead celebrities.   Celebs are featured in the month he or she took the big sleep. Featuring some of the late and greats: Bea Arthur, Michael Jackson and John Updike (one of my favorite authors) kicks off the calendar. Read More
Ok, this is the most bizarre tribute to The Golden Girls EVER. And possibly the weirdest thing you'll see today.  Artist James Kuhn can paint his face to look like pretty much anything. From Shrek, to a human hot dog face, his work shows a deeper dedication to lipstick, powder and paint than Marilyn Manson (who, incidentally I think he has also imitated). What you are seeing here though is THREE GOLDEN GIRLS covering his entire head. Watch the video too, for a full rotation of the fab four. Read More
A Holiday Message to a loved one on the Jersey Shore.Believe this...This is an actual un-touched photo I shot while sitting in my car at the Welsh Farms convenience store in Neptune, NJ, enroute to my grandparents for Christmas Day. I'm not even sure how the universe aligned so perfectly to capture this. I hope you have a good laugh at this true story captured on celluloid. Read More
The provocateur of underground comics, Robert Crumb, has another book on the chopping block and this time it's all about Adam and Eve. Crumb lends his pen to the first biblical story - rife with signature work in The Book of Genesis Illustrated.  Crumb rendered all fifty chapters of the book with precise and careful detail given to each panel. He made a career out of teetering on the fine line of controversy and proves that even the Bible doesn't stray from that sphere. It's a story about the beginning, a story about sex and discovery.

While doing my daily trolling of the Internet, I came across the coolest thing ever. Artist Katie Paterson took a trip to Iceland and recorded the sounds of glaciers, which she then had pressed into ice records that were made from the drippings of the actual glaciers she recorded. (!!!) It's little nuggets of brilliance like this that make me happy to be alive, and whistle while I work and all that. To join in on the inspiration, go here. Read More
