From Bedrooms And Basements To The World

That last post was all doom and gloom and not a good note to leave off on for the weekend. Besides, it’s amazing how much a cup a coffee can change one’s attitude. That, and a reassuring phone call from the little man’s psychologist. So I’ll try to post some happy happy joy joy links while this upbeat-ish mood lasts.
First off, I’m quite enjoying the indescribable beauty of Bearsuit (just received their latest from microindie records, as well as a bonus ‘badge‘ that has been described as wicked).
Secondly, I’m thinking of signing up the little man for an apprenticeship with Lorika. I don’t know how she does it. We get this crappy, fluffy, powdery snow that I can’t seem to do anything with…yet she builds these beautiful sculptures. I suspect super-special fairie magic is involved.
Thirdly, speaking of magic…some French art students created this very, very sad but beautiful and brilliant and slightly creepy tribute to Jim Henson and the Muppets.
Fourth-like, this portrait of Johnny Cash made me think of Receptionista.
Finally, I’ve never owned a pair of Fluevogs because a) when I most wanted ‘em I couldn’t afford ‘em and b) when I finally could afford ‘em, I’d already gone vegan and stopped wearing leather altogether. But that doesn’t stop me from looking at them now and again. Recently I was admiring these Maxi Bondgirl Boots but realized that, even if there were a vegan version out there, they’d likely reach my chin as I’m just barely 5′0″. Oh well.
Bonus: I’ve only just discovered Grim Fandango. I’m intrigued.
