Another Great Gift Idea: Medium Leather Wrapped Stone

Tuesday, 13 December 2016

nordstrom-medium-leather-wrapped-stone

A paperweight? A conversation piece? A work of art? It’s up to you, but this smooth Los Angeles-area stone—wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather secured by sturdy contrast whipstitching—is sure to draw attention wherever it rests. A traditional hardening process gives the leather a beautiful ombré effect. Like all Made Solid leather pieces, this one is cut, shaped, sewn and finished by hand in artist Peter Maxwell’s Los Angeles studio. Using vintage leatherworking tools and traditional saddle-stitching techniques, Maxwell aims to create beautiful designs that embody both simplicity and functionality, and that develop rich character and patina over time.

Nice trolling, Nordstrom.

Q: What’s the link between the USS Arizona Memorial and Elvis?
A: THIS.

It knows what you’re doing [via].

Nope. You can’t swim in molasses.

Crazy Snail and things.

To pundits and journalists: Please stop using the phrase, “It begs the question.” It doesn’t mean what you think it means.

I Googled “Hair Monster Food” and got this.

Warning for Parents: this is a potentially dangerous doll.

Elderly Man Is Happy With Graffiti On His Door.

Thursday, 1 December 2016

door-1

A company in Amsterdam [True Doors] came up with a clever idea: a way for seniors in retirement facilities to personalize their own otherwise bland entrances.

door-2

This works on several levels: The resident can have some fun, it’s easier for those with failing eyesight to find their apartments, and relatives don’t have to follow the room numbers to visit their elders.

door-3

The stock designs start at €9o + €24 shipping, which equates to about $124 USD, but if you spread the cost out over several years it’s inexpensive.

Papa Strutts would have chosen a custom design that looked something like this:

You might still be able to find this great parody on the internest if you know where to look. It’s one of those rare recordings that you could play in the background at a party and few would notice until someone says “Wait a minute! That’s not Bob!”

Copyright lawyers knocked it down years ago and spoiled the fun. Go figure.
