Animal Head

Maskfash

I wasn't concerned when my wife began to wear Carlos Diez's new mask accessory in private. But when she began sporting one in public, I was startled (to say the very least). Until I began to notice the stares and smiles of admiration.

Mysteryfash_1But I've been considering this. It's very Hercules meets Darth Vader!

Godzilla Crime Photos

Godz_01

Last night, I did a Flickr search for "blue giant Marusan" and I happened upon the stunning photos of this godzilla! Along with them, I discovered a treasure trove of vinyl monsters (and vinyl toys), lovingly photographed by Geozilla (or, as he's known in the real world, George Davis).

Godz_02I spent far too much time flipping through photo after photo. I swear... he makes them look like candy (and I was getting hungrier and hungrier for some candy).

Unfortunately, I have the displeasure to announce, the Marusan website has run clean out of giant blue Godzillas (he, he... because I just bought the last one)!

George has collected a few of the giant Marusan godzillas. Some mouthwatering photos of his these monsters can be seen here and here.

Godz_03_1 And for an extra treat, take a look at Tim Biskup's custom painted Gamagon. It's extraordinary!

Vintage Frames

Scura

Greetings to the countless throngs of Boingboingers who've clicked on the boingboing link (all 11 or 12 of you). Yeah, that's me, wearing vintage frames from Allyn Scura. And I hope everyone does because vintage frames never go out of style and because many of them will make you feel like a character straight out of a 60's film. And this is a wonderful feeling. (I am the evil nemesis of James Bond – I will destroy the world!)

Things to Smile About

Girl_1

Beautiful, small things make me smile. Perhaps because, lately, it seems there's so much to not smile about. A company named Cerealart makes beautiful (though sometimes pricey) small things. Take a look... you also may find yourself smiling.

While you're there, make sure you check out Yoshitomo Nara's "Too Young to Die" Ashtray. And Marcel Dzama's "Sea Salt Jester Pepper Shakers".
