Gonna keep the shitty crafts theme going after my last knitting post. Some of you fwends may already be aware of regretsy.com, but I just found out about it and I’m in love. The blog finds revolting things for sale on Etsy and has pretty decent commentary on said items. But these gems speak for themselves:
This glow-in-the dark lingerie is one of those products you see and wonder why it took us this long to make. Get it from Australian based Luminoglow.
I realize this is my second post featuring him, and I don’t mean to make this a Seth Rogen blog, but he’s totes adorbs. Especially now that he’s not such a raging fatass, amiright?!
Anyone who has tried to work in Flash and failed horribly like myself will enjoy this.
I am such a sucker for art that involves suspending anything in mid-air. Add to it a strong sense of space + geometry and materials such as fruit, flowers and taxidermy and you have Claire Morgan‘s stunning pieces.
Claire has much more amazing work on her website.

My Parents Were Awesome is an aptly titled blog, reminding us that our parents didn’t always love family cruises, Michael Buble and carpooling. They were, at one point, totally awesome.
One of my coworkers, Stephen Petronis, came up with this brilliant prank to fuck with one of our other coworkers who was getting back from a 2 week vacation, and I made a little documentary about it. Enjoy!
Let’s take a moment to listen to their first studio track because it fuuuuucking rocks.
Then let’s take a moment to picture a grinning Andrew clinking a shot of bourbon with Dave Grohl at the front bar, while a glowing Liz is accepting yet another shot from one (very tall) Josh Homme at the back bar. While I just sort of wander around knocking candles and glasses off the tables because I’m too busy drunk dialing the first 30 people in my address book to watch where I’m going…
Let’s pray they go on a proper tour, folks. There is more fun to be had!
Ok, so, if you don’t know this about me yet, I knit. I love it and I do it a lot. The rhythm of it, the gratification of making something you can wear/use, the logic of the pattern, all of that helps to keep me on my rocker, since my job makes my brain explode on a daily basis.
In my search for simple, uniquely structured patterns that I’d actually want to wear, I’ve found it can be very hard to find knitting patterns that aren’t midwest mothers’ wetdreams. Or for trailer trash skanks that like to wear hand-knit bikini tops on a hot night out. The only benefit of sifting through all of these who-the-hell-would-wear-or-even-touch-that-sweater-scarf-combo patterns is that I’m able to share them with you Fwends for a few wtf giggles.
