I've been waiting with bated breath for #2! All other comics have ceased to be entertaining or aesthetically pleasing to me since vol. #1. Maybe that just means I haven't been exposed to the right comics... but I seriously love this guy's work... and his tunes.

Found this old print of mine while I was cleaning-
One of my favorite spots in Duboise, WY.

'Ice is an interesting subject for contemplation.' Henry David Thoreau

Ate homemade pear sorbet tonight for dessert– so awesome! (It was flavored with lemon rind and cloves!)
I had no idea how easy sorbet is to make– I think I may have to go out tomorrow to get some supplies for future sorbets. I'm thinking ginger peach, mango anise, or avocado lime although the fad online seems to be wine sorbets... possibilities are limitless.
The key is the sugar... just enough will keep it from freezing solid.

I love Instructables. I have yet to try one of the projects, but once I find some time this'll be the first on my sewing table.

I've always despised architecture, mostly because it's exemplified by monstrous eyesores begging for attention... (what am I doing in New York?!)
These little prefab guys have change my mind.

more greatness from the Turks

'Finders Keepers' has released an Ersen album stateside! Looking forward to getting my hands on this one. All I've heard of his is what's on Peace, Love, and Poetry vol. 9... which I really love.
(neither of the images are the album art for the newest, but i like them better)

Just saw these awesome totes of lena corwin's...
The denim print totally looks like something kiki smith would have made. However, my favorite is the linen with the delicate punched tin print. She'll be selling them at the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene.

My favorite of all B. Franklin's inventions.

such a shame it causes insanity.

Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed.
-Herman Melville

I'll soon put up in-progress photos of my newest stitching... I've been caught up in some digital work this week.

Merry April Fools...

I don't have anything clever to post, so here are some clips of Mitchell & Webb.

So my plants are dead.

The worst thing about living in a basement apartment is the lack of sunlight. I really don't mind the whole 'not absorbing vitamin d' thing, but the havoc it's wreaked on my succulents! I'm thinking of starting a moss garden... I hear if you stick moss in a blender along with buttermilk, yogurt or beer it creates an amazing spreadable milkshake full of moss growing possibilities. Anything is better than this:

Also, I've been looking to watch 'Bush's War' again and just realized the whole thing is on the Frontline website! Definitely watch this one if you haven't yet.
