When I was in 4th grade. my teachers
thought there was something
wrong with me. They sent me
to the school psychologist. She had skin
the color of mayo
and wore lipstick
like it was a garment.
She had me play with these
building blocks
with a fake brick pattern on them.
There were just enough so that you couldn't actually be satisfied
with anything you formally constructed.
I have no idea
what she could have been writing down
while I crafted
small scale cubist versions of armored transport vehicles.
My homeroom teacher promised she'd buy me
a candy bar
at the end of the week
if I was able
to document
that I
was paying
for 5 days.
I don't remember her ever buying me anything.
I remember that week that my friend Debbie brought in some pornographic cartoons she found in her basement.
I remember writing a paper on "Facts about Granite".

Naturalismo is the most comprehensive freak-folk weirdo blog I think I've stumbled across. Check it if that shite intrigues thee.


This is very fucking cool my friends.
Dan Mcpharlin makes these little miniatures of synths. Very impressive craft.

Taking the month off from le booze, sugar, and most carbs to purge the system. And boy if I don't want one of Morgenthaler's Old-Fashioned's right about now. Heres a great "anti drinking" campaign poster from mid century Russia:

Brethren Rob turned me on to the foodie show on BBC that deals with this guy Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstal. He's a wing nut (an ohh so british) but very entertaining. This one episode he goes into deep detail on when he slaughters his 3 pigs and all the tasty cuts (confit, chops, ribs, necks, bones, head, trotters, sausage, BACON, pates, blood sausage, etc.) he gets off of them for a massive feast. He's also an organic garden maestro but this particular episode is all about the swine. Not recommended for los vegetarianos. Really great documentary.


Brenden and Anne Marie over at Belly should really appreciate this! In case you haven't been there ... words do not describe the deliciousness and care they put into their thing (their thing being CULINARY NIRVANA). Here they are servin' us up on new years eve ...
Bye bye Ricardo.
I love how they bill this as "the small crystler"!
