Check out this radical art book by Scott Campbell. The forward is by Jack Black so you know what that means — It’s going to be bloated and sweaty. Unless it’s a different Jack Black and then boy is my face red…
These hand-stitched book cover diaries are so amazing, I literally cannot imagine the time it takes to create something so detailed. I can, however, imagine what it’s like to watch a co-worker fart into a bag, tie it closed and leave it on another co-worker’s desk. Well, not so much “imagine” as “live it.” God bless advertising.
When I first saw this I was so confused. I was like, “Who stores their butcher knives next to their Agatha Christies?” Then I actually read the description (or more accurately scrolled through the pictures) and figured out it’s a cookbook shelf/knife holder/cutting board multi-tool and that’s when I realized it’s more useful than me. It does three things. I merely do two — write and toot. Wait a second, I eat and sleep, too. Four things!! I do four things!! Eat my ass, Kitchen Bull.
In the spirit of this book, I’m going to recycle an old post and just paste in the new name. Isn’t that fun and not at all lazy???
Until I teach my cat to writebuild things (and I will, we’ve already conquered Backgammon), I’ll have to settle for Other People’s Love Letters1,000 Ideas for Creative Reuse: Remake, Restyle, Recycle. I hate to be so kind in a blog post, but this is a perfectly charmingpractical book and if it’s not really your thing, read it anyway and puke onupcycle your keyboard. Then take a picture and send it to me and I’ll pukeupcycle my keyboard, too, and we’ll be, like, total VFFUFF(vomit friends forever)(upcycle friends forever).
[Badder Homes and Gardens] had me laughing uproariously, and totally wishing I could say half of what they say. Be forewarned that if you are offended by cursing... then take my advice and forget I even mentioned it. But if you like your snark pretty offensive with a little dash of design, read it and weep.
Badder Homes and Gardens is maintained by three whip-smart Texas gals [who have] a great collective eye for clever art and design, and a knack for describing beauty with bathroom humor, which is no easy feat.
The stereotype of the good housewife is old. Enter Badder Homes and Gardens. Their tips are more likely to make life hilarious than to get you a parent of the year award. If you’ve ever gotten nauseous watching Martha Stewart, then this delightfully sarcastic—yet still useful—site is for you.
