Chrissy Angliker

Chrissy Angliker was born in Zurich. She does some good design work but I am really feeling the paintings. via Sup Maggie Lee.

Scott Peterman

This may be the second time I have posted Scott Peterman's Ice Shacks Photo series. The Cityscapes and Landscapes are very good as well.

Saw Benjamin Button Last Night

Saw Benjamin Button last night. As soon as I can find web video of the WB/Paramount button intro I will post it. Two other things, it had a Forrest Gump feel and Cate Blanchett is fucking beautiful.

Barack the Magic Negro

Sounds like the Onion. Isn't. Pretty unbelievable.

My boss gave me the Oblique Strategies card set for the Christmas time. It was really thoughtful and a good end to my weird work year. Also, this album cover was on page one of the Image Search.

Hidalgo Hartmann

This bad ass house was designed by Spanish architecture firm, Hidalgo-Hartmann. You can see more of it here. Also, I think their (H-H) website is fucking perfect.

180° South

Woodshed Films is releasing 180° South in 2009. Watching the trailer made me feel better - incredible right? via Monster Children.

Daisies in Newspaper

In You've Got Mail the Gerber daisies Tom Hanks gives to Meg Ryan are wrapped in newspaper and I think that's dope. Knowing that apparently makes me a bad communicator. This blog has gotten so bad.

Sharks Tickets

It is that time of year again when I get to pretend to be a hockey fan. So the list goes, I need new glasses, a front tooth (no lie), and Sharks tickets for Christmas.

Fleer Sticker Project

When I was a kid I became a Bengals fan because a) I liked rooting against the 49ers and b) Ickey fucking Woods. I cried after the John Taylor catch of 1989. Retro Fleer sticker pack blog via Draplin.

Science for Beesh

A few science links for my homie Beesh. Technological Singularity. Solar Panels = No good. Mars in 3D (Scientific American has a really nice website).

For some reason I love this Anthony Lister Diptych. So much so that I see why the two 14x18 pieces are priced at $6500. via Fecal Face.

I was going to do a post on an illustrator from Australia who makes work that looks really similar to Egon Schiele's and then I said, fuck it, I will post a nice Egon Schiele gallery. Here you go.

Hi Res

I am working on a little project that I need hi-res images for. The internet gave me this and these and I thought I would share. I personally like the Ronald Reagan.

The Lives of Others

The Lives of Others came through the Netflix a few days ago. I really enjoyed it. On a related note, Coudal linked an older Wired article on American wiretapping today. Solid.

The Internet

Blows today and this is why: MySpace is for those people. Jeezy is a serious political figure. I like the Kanye Heartless joint. Matt Drudge will make more money if shit really gets fucked.
