Small missives from the house I grew up in, since we’re visiting for Easter:
Last year my dad designed a special spoon so he could pull brain stems out of animals to check them for diseases. It’s pretty glamorous. He does it after they’re dead, obviously. Otherwise that would be a pretty cruel and pointless test. I told my mom that he should sell them but she said there wasn’t much of a call for brain stem spoons. This is exactly why we’re in a recession. Because people don’t have enough faith in their inventions.
Speaking of inventions, my dad had to style a bear’s hair so he made a blow-dryer out of a leaf-blower, duct-tape and PVC pipe.
My father is the MacGuyver of Taxidermy.
Happy Easter, y’all.
And now, the weekly wrap-up of awesomeness:
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to why don’t you go to the place that sells those really good tacos. That place is awesome.
- People always ask how to see the newest stuff. Click here.
- Kick-ass stuff I pinned.
- “Here kitty, kitty, ki-“
- This makes it feel real.
- I need to borrow $400.
Shit you should buy or steal because it’s awesome:
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by the amazing minds behind the Unpodcast – the business show for the fed-up. Go check it out now. I recommend starting with this one, about the importance of paying your creatives rather than ripping them off by asking them to work for free. I second that motion. Go check it out right now.
