The .Gif Friday Post No. 512 – “Does This Ever Happen To You?”

Friday, 1 December 2017


All are clips from late-night TV ads for helpful gizmos. The lady in the gray pullover goes through a dozen eggs every morning, but Tape Measure Guy is my favorite.

Saturday Matinee – Nick Offerman, John Edmark & Phi, HST & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 27 May 2017

I’ve never seen a single episode of “Parks & Recreation,” but this advert featuring actor  Nick Offerman is mildly amusing [via]. It doesn’t go far enough IMO. Someone tell Nick that I’d be happy to outline a horror story based upon actual events.

John Edmark creates some amazing stuff using the irrational number Phi, laser cutters and strobes [via].

Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride” is a 2006 documentary about rogue reporter Hunter S. Thompson, narrated by Nick Nolte. Thompson was an amusing unhinged journalist who set the standard for inserting himself into every story he ever covered.

Gotta have at least one music vid, and we haven’t posted any Roy Buchanan in a while, so there you go.

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend, folks, and please take the time to remember what it’s all about.

“If you can find a job that you would do without being paid, that’s what you should do.” – Harley Warrick

That’s Mail Pouch barn painter Harley Warrick (1924-2000).

Here’s an excellent tribute site to those who travelled the sticks to hand-paint the ubiquitous advertisements:

Mail Pouch Barnstormers.

That quote on top? It’s similar to what my own grampa told me:
“Find something you like to do, figure out how to get paid for it, and you’ll never work a day.”

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.

WE GOT COUPONS.

Click on the ones you like, right-click and save them full size; use a photoshop tool to square and crop, print them out on glossy newsprint, trim them then cash them in.
