Monday Musings

This column is going weekly with links guys. Oh yeah.

First up: The Gugg's in trouble again. Human Right's Watch is calling for protection for the migrant workers in Abu Dhabi. It's worth wondering if this scandal-plagued branch will ever open.

Next is an odd story about Zimbabwe "sperm hunters" and witchdoctors. Yes, you read that right.

New Project: Pachisi Board!

I found myself growing ever more frustrated with the lack of beautiful Pachisi boards in stores. I did not want some horrifically colorful game for kids - I wanted a sophisticated, beautiful version.  So I decided to make my own. 16x16" pine, stained and colored with Sharpie.

I decided to stripe the back and put a chalkboard on it, for whenever I need to write something down.

It was great to do a project for myself for a change. I hope everyone likes the results!

Edit: better picture.

Little Somethings

The spiral bound journal features photogaphs of my Aunts. The other two pages, "Musings," are part of a spiral book project as well, made through the use of a few lovely stamps, a ruler, and a black pen.

Monday Musings I

To amazing/beautiful things. I know I haven't posted in a while. I've been working like crazy, I have made some things but sold them instantly, i.e. before I was able to photograph them. Sorry y'all. Anyway, here's a roundup of things I've read over the past week, generally found interesting, and would like to share. Complete with pictures! I know that makes for more scrolling, but at least you'll see just what is so cool.

It's rare that I see an art installation as beautiful as this one. Its title is Bloom: 28,000 Potted Flowers Installed at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center. Colossal has a great interview with the artist, Anna Schuleit.

Check out this pic of Marlena Dietrich and Edith Piaf being awesome.

Frida you so sexy girl.

Lastly, there's a book that's filled with images just like this one. I need it, and so do you.

Next week's links will be more plentiful. I promise I'll keep a running list of cool things just so I can give them to y'all. Monday Musings? Think that's a good name.

Edit: So sorry I forgot the best one! If you haven't checked out the opening of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, watch it now. It's amazing. Superb animation. Also, Karen O singing the Immigrant Song. Perfect beyond words.
