Russian to Get One of These Lamps

Jesus, I'm such a sucker for awesome lighting fixtures. These Ruskii + Ruskii Twist lamps are like the best parts of the Kremlin, right in your house! Okay, so that's not exactly how designer Enrico Zanolla describes them, but whatever. I know what I'm talking about. He, on the other hand, calls the series a "tribute to the beauty and uniqueness of the St. Basil cathedral in Moscow." Same deal.

Geek Crafts Repost: 8-Bit Greetings

So several of you, my dear (few) readers, have complained that you want to read my Geek Crafts posts without actually following Geek Crafts. I don't know why, given that Geek Crafts is awesome, but hey, happy to oblige. Going forward, the plan is that, every Wednesday, when I post there, I shall repost here.

Anyway, check out today's post about how to make awesome 8-bit popup cards. They sit firmly at the intersection of dorky and cute.

I kinda love these Christian Popsicles conceived and created by artist/designer Sebastien Errazuriz. They're both humorous and a symbolically potent comment on religious fanaticism...and probably delicious.

My Kind of Eternal Flame

Are there any circumstances when you wouldn't want a chocolate candle if given the choice? I suspect not.

Thanks, Hanna!

We're Gonna Need a Bigger Internet

I never thought I'd say it, but sharks are awesome, as evidenced by this Tumblr feed. Especially this ridiculous hybrid-vehicle-driving ("driving") shark. So yeah. Dammit. This is going to have to be another feed I follow daily.

Busy, Sleepy

Expect sporadic-to-no posts this week. So much laundry, so many dishes, plus I feel a little run-down. I have things to talk about, really! Just neither the time nor the energy.

Kawaii KumaCrafts Creations

Oh my god. I don't know if I can take the cuteness of KumaCrafts' jewelry. It is beyond adorable. My two favorites by far are the Maneki Neko necklace—I do have rather a thing for super lucky cats—and the Happy Red Panda necklace. Now my only question is: Are they too young for me? Can I get away with wearing such over-the-top preciousness? Or will I just look like a six-year-old (or a 14-year-old Asian girl)? And, for that matter, do I care?

Perfectly Strange

Do I know the context for this Perfect Strangers flash game? I do not. Do I care? Hell naw. Because it's fucking awesome. (It's even got the song, guys. The song!) That's all either you or I need to know. Go play it. Now. Then do dance of joy.

Spiked Tea

Mmm, this Smoky Iced Tea and Whiskey Cooler sounds like the perfect summer drink. There aren't enough whiskey-based summer cocktails, in my opinion. So yeah, I want this and I want it now. Well, it's actually muggy and gross right now, so I'm not sure what the appropriate cocktail is for weather that feels like soup, but you get the point. Sooner or later it'll get warm and sunny and I'll want this drink, probably in large quantities.

Super Morrissey Bros.

Awesome. Musician Lazyitis has composed an 8-bit cover of The Smiths' "This Charming Man." Apparently the plan is to whip up an accompanying video, which I'm looking forward to....
