Cinemas, Theaters, Operas

These amazing pictures of cinemas by Sylvia Ballhause, theaters by Frank Bohbot, and operas by Rafael Naff all feel of the same world, and are all well worth a look. (And while you're there, be sure to look at Bohbot's Pools and Neff's libraries.) It's hard to imagine doing anything in these spaces but letting your mouth drop open in admiration.

Glaser Lasagna

Jon Glaser is easily one of my favorite comedians, and his show, Delocated, is, for my money, one of the greatest shows ever created. In the above video from the good people of Thing X, we are treated to a rare intimate conversation with the man, the artist, the lasagna chef.

Down In The Basement

You could do worse than starting your day with this cup of nonsense. Enjoy.

The Cooper Apparatus

I'm always fascinated to get a look at other people's studio set ups, especially when it's someone whose work I love. Dave Cooper is one such artist, and his contraption for easy painting set up/knock down/adjustment is as ingenious as his artwork. (Thanks to Jesse LeDoux for alerting me to this.)

The Mill at Calder's End

There are only a few days left on this campaign, but I'd be remiss in my duties if I didn't mention it. This is exactly what Kickstarter and sites of its kind are for. I have no idea how this kind of project would get made otherwise, other than directly out of pocket. And it's great to see that plenty of other people (over five hundred and counting) agree: more weird, beautifully realized projects, please.

No, Really. Really.

Right after the last post saying there would be posts to follow, the universe conspired against this blog and – insert sound of the Millennium Falcon not making the jump to lightspeed – the blog disappeared. So after weeks of getting to the bottom of the problem. Here we are again. And now, really, I will start putting some things that have little to do with one another other than I like them. Which is, after all, the whole point of this thing.
