Kim Westad, Ceramist

7:42 am | writes:

 

I had no more than the most minimal of interests in pottery before watching this video of ceramist Kim Westad’s process. Now I am enthralled with her work & must have one!

See (and buy) her finished work here.

If the dulcet tones of Kim’s voice has lulled you into too mellow of a mood, you can always turn to the screen-printing blokes at Aesthetic Apparatus and their process video "How We Do."

Creative Ideas for YOU

7:43 am | writes:

Have you always wanted to be "more creative?" Now you can! With minimal effort!

David Horvitz is posting rather brilliant creative ideas for YOU, the general public, to put into practice.

In fact, most of the ideas are far more compelling ways to spend an afternoon than what most of us end up doing with our days. Thus, I’m not posting any samples here. Go to the site & read through them. Find those that speak to you. Then do them.

yooouuutuuube will take any YouTube video and streams them across the screen all at once.

Here’s a good example using the remixed Alice in Wonderland (music) video.

Another fine find of Miss McCracken’s is meatcards. Someone who hands me one of these is the kind of person I want to do business with. (warning not suitable for vegetarians)

In preparation for a move, a Detroit Graphic Designer sells everything she owns.

Hundreds of items, starting at a penny a piece.

Goodbye, waffle maker

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

If, like me, you wish to celebrate in the traditional fashion — enjoy a fine sea shanty & swill some dark rum. … perhaps I have my holidays mixed up.
