Nice beaver

Wow! Look at the mascot for the '76 Montreal Olympics. I found this in a pretty funny post about the horrible mascots for the 2012 Olympics in England

Friday vids

Singles are playing Popfest tonight at Bottom of the Hill with Nodzzzzzz. I'm psyched to see Nodzzz. It's been at least a year. Too long. I'm also psyched it's at the Bottom of the Hill=easy parking and near the Whole Foods. It's the little things.

Ganglians pics

I've been looking for anyone posting about the Ganglians tour in Europe and I found this blog with some great pictures!

smoke up

Look at that gorgeous photo! Here's the artist's website with more beautiful photos. I'm excited to catch the artist lecture by Youngsuk Suh tonight at the CCA. Again, it starts at 7.
I don't even want to hear about how great John Waters probably was at the Crest last night. I'm a schmuck for not going. On that note, do you guys remember this short that they used to play at the Tower before the movies? Was it at the Crest, too? Anyways, I would like to officially kick off my campaign to get this brought back. I love it so much. Can people reading who work at those theaters look into this?

I don't think I'm gonna have time to photoshop Lost merch, but I'd still like to see yours.

I just found this one. I did not make it. I'll post the ones I make tomorrow.


Yes! Dan posted the emails he got in response to his Phish slam in the News and Review!

more Lost fun

So I've been looking at Cafepress maybe just a little bit too long today. At Lost stuff. I thought I'd post some groaners. I can't promise that there won't be any spoilers so don't look if you're not caught up!

Ok, there's a lot of Locke-related merch. A lot of it is focused around the quote "don't tell me what I can't do". Thing is, some of it is a little insensitive to people in wheelchairs. I think the picture below qualifies:

I guess I can't argue with this one:
I wasn't in the bathroom for the part where Claire said this, right? I'm pretty sure she never said this, although it might have been cool if she had. In Joel's voice, imitating Scarface.
I posted this one because I know this style of shirts drives Smiller crazy. Shirts for fake establishments and businesses, usually centered around an island theme. Also "seafood meats"?
Weak. Ok, pretty good by the standards of cafepress.
Don't even know what to say about this one.
This one is in the fake indie art style that was popularized by Napolean Dynamite. Smiller hates this, too.
Also weak.
No, sorry, if you're going to make a play on the "all I got was this lousy t-shirt" genre, you need to stick to that or it loses all meaning.
You knew someone had to go there
There were a few weak Richard Alpert face cream images, but this is the weakest one. What kind of a slogan is that?
I know that "box" is not a super common term for "vagina" but it's common enough that no one should have made this.
This one was advertised as a "Sawyer grunge tshirt".
Nine years?
Again, weak connection. Is this both Saint Patrick's Day and Lost themed?
This one just seemed really silly because why a pet bowl? The only question the cat wants answered is where is the feast.
This one is kind of good.
I sent this to Scott and he wants to know who started the trend of saying things in this way? What is it based on? LOL cats?
Picture a middle-aged lady wearing this. Oh wait, I'm a middle aged lady.
There are a lot of "X is my constant" but this one is random.
Too much information about your fantasies! Yuck.
Again, a fake business one that will drive Scott insane.
I have it on inside authority that this is the least popular item on cafepress.
Combining a love of knitting and Lost
This one is pretty cool
Here's one based on that Locke quote, but eliminating the "don't" renders it confusing
The only Dogen-related merch!
What is this one based on? I saw one for Sayid, too.
This one just renders the dharma logo more feminine
This one hurts my eyes. Terrible photoshop
So true!

cooking while camping

Hey guys-
what do you think are some good things to cook while camping? I am lazy about cleanup and I don't want anything that can contaminate the cooler water!! What's your go-to camping dish?

No spoilers!

For all of you Lost fans out there that are unfortunate enough to not be caught up, the whole world must be a spoiler for you, so you will find no spoilers here! Just cat pictures.

This unfixed, sleek male is romancing Babs through the window. He drives her wild!
I scored at the Bows garage sale. I got an African-print red shift dress for a dollar that fits really well. The shop was mobbed at like 8:15 am! One guy got really aggro when I accidentally touched his girlfriends pile. It was getting crazy in there.

My garden had an open house. It was a nice neighborhood event. There were a ton of kids having fun but I know people don't like pictures of their kids posted on the internet.

This is not my garden plot. I wish it was.
Mmmm...grilled pork banh mi from Hong Luong. Why can't I be eating this right now. They also had a lady operating a coconut waffle station while I was there. I was too full to try one.
Wow, could you have tried a little bit harder wtih this sign, maybe?
The weather was perfect for Max Freedom. I was surprised at how cool the gamelan was. Mostly because I had no idea what it was until I got to the fest.

Yay English Singles! Good set!
