Instructables play editor and community manager Mike Warren created a tutorial for transforming plastic toy animals into awesome corn cob holders. Mike even cleverly designed his holders to firmly reconnect, so they can also be displayed as cute toys when they aren’t in use.

This is what Barbie would look like if she were scaled to the body size of the average 19-year-old woman in the US.  (x)

Given the negative impact that playing with Barbies can have on girls’ self esteem and eating patterns, how hard would it really be for Mattel to make Barbies with healthier & more realistic bodies?

Finally Barbie got cakes..

that’s the “average” ass a white girl has? i beg to differ.

0% chance.

also I had to look up what “cakes” were. good to know.

alternately titled: “if you are a female and I am not attracted to you, it is likely because your ancestors’ diet consisted more of grains than of meats, in an environment where sunlight was too dim to produce vitamin D in normally pigmented skin.”

My friend Emily Fischer runs a custom quilt studio called Haptic Lab and she just introduced a Great Lakes quilt. If you grew up in this region, you might feel as fondly about this as I do.

She’s accepting pre-orders for $150, then she’s going to do a big run and deliver in May.

I do like this quilt…

John Hughes’ commentary: The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees…The more he looks at it, there’s nothing there and I think he fears that the more you look at him, the less you see—there isn’t anything there. That’s him.


If you haven’t watched this movie with Hughes’ commentary, you need to. It’s brilliant. And also all on YouTube.

Montana
by Gretchen Bredeson

Yes, every high mountain loch in western Montana looks like this. Yes, they’re formed by glacial run-off and cold as a witch’s tit in a brass bra year-round. Yes, all you have to do is look where the fish are before you cast. Yes, Phil posted this because he knew I would reblog it. Yes, this picture reminds me of home. Yes, it’s pretty scary when you cross over the dropoff slope and clearly see schools of seven-foot-long carp and catfish, prehistoric sturgeon, gar and paddlefish circling under rootbaskets of full pines sunken twenty fathoms deep.

"Shouldn’t we have a category for endangered words? Perhaps we need a system of adopting words to keep them safe and well, the way people adopt favourite stretches of highway. We would sign up, promise to use our chosen words as often as possible and of course object when they are misused or threatened with abandonment."

When you think of Chicago pizza, the image of the tall wall of crust containing a thick slab of molten cheese and the layer of sauce on top comes to mind. Deep dish/pan pizza is the Chicago-style pizza. But because of its sheer decadence by nature of the giant slices with ungodly amounts of cheese, deep dish remains an investment of time, money, and effort best saved for special occasions. Enter the Chicago thin crust pizza.

Differing from New York pizza in many ways (I won’t get into them now), one of the more interesting differences is the way Chicago thin crust is served. “Party cut” or “tavern cut” into squares, the thin crust pizza offers non-homogenous pieces (inside crustless, outside with crust, and tiny outside triangles). Perhaps a subtle tribute to the Cartesian grid of arterial streets in the city, the way the pizza for the masses in Chicago is cut is a tradition worth noting.

Holler.  Fuck New York Pizza.  I’m deathly serious about this.  I will miss you Chicago thin crust.

leading into my favorite tommy tweet of all time, “I have a dream that all pizza will be one day judged not by its shape but by the composition of its ingredients.”

I know what I’m seeking out for lunch now.

I need to go home.
