In my unnamed office building, 30 out of the 120 bathrooms contain something called “female urinals.” They look like this. I have no idea how to use them. Luckily a high-level governmental official has been made aware of the problem.
kinda catchy and very adorable.
Drew does a pretty good “Mother darling.”
found on ed droste’s twitter. he also posted a cute video of a kid dancing to the song “two weeks”:
seriously padma? this is paris hilton territory…
also, she keeps eating the hamburger but it never gets smaller. hmmmm.
Speaking of My Little Ponies…
I think my sister Margaret showed me Mari Kasurinen‘s Star Wars-themed My Little Ponies a few months ago, and I really should have posted about them back then. In case it’s not immediately obvious to you, these are the greatest things in the universe. Not just because they’re really cool conceptually, but because they’re spot on. Take, for example, My Little Edward Scissorhands:
That pony has the exact same emotion as Johnny Depp does. Yeah yeah, I know. It’s a My Little Pony that’s dressed up like Edward Scissorhands. Ha ha. But it’s crazy awesome.
Also, the Joker. I know it’s a My Little Pony, but it’s just about as creepy as Heath Ledger was.
Not all of them are dark and creepy. Some are really super funny and sweet:
Heman (Dan’s favorite)
Anyway, these are fantastic. Check out others (Boba Fett, Han Solo, Cewie, The Bride from Kill Bill, Alien, Predator, etc) on Mari’s website.
It looks so peaceful.
This reminds me of when I was a little girl and I used to arrange all my My Little Ponies in a circle around me. And if I was feeling particularly amitious, I’d use my troll dolls, too.
Anyway, this artist (Brooke Inman) uses colored pencils, photographs, markers and other shit to do this. I can just imagine Emily watching me do something like this and saying “You’re stressing me out!”
i love this commercial. i think it’s super cute. does this make me lame?
Maurice Sendak + Arcade Fire + Karen O + Spike Jones
I love Pharell. Especially when he’s trying to get McD’s to open early! Hilarious.
Ok, I haven’t watched this with sound or all the way through, but Ryan suggested I post it and he is generally reliable when it comes to crap.
i don’t entirely understand what google chrome is. im sure someone will explain or i could ask wikipedia and find on in a sec but im jetlagged and exhausted from my trip to iceland (ill post more about this later). SO… google chrome has put up these cool experiments. i suggest the…
and ball pool
mostly because these were all featured today but I tried them all and they were fun. browser talk requires a microphone though and ball pool almost made my computer explode (after a few tries it sounded like it was about to take off) but they are all super fun. browsermation looked fun too but i couldnt get it to work. check out all of the chrome experiments here.
ps. thanks steve for showing this to me and thanks to jr for making fun of me for not knowing what google chrome is
looking for some inspiration? this is an amazing blog with new images/art made everyday by this dude (Brock Davis?). below are some of my faves so far in 2knine. (there is a flickr pool too for make something everyday – here)
I have wanted a headboard for a WHILE but probably am not going to spend hundred of dollars on that at the moment. Nora, I’m suprised you haven’t posted this already:
this via Nadia who is having a pretty inspired internet day.
nadia: internetz explosion
I didn’t. He’s cute! How adorable is that? I thought it was a lady! This Ricky Gervais vid has made the rounds but it’s pretty great if you haven’t watched it.
shoot me in the face please. Because this show is terrible. Seriously. It’s a brain abortion.
So the fantastic (c) Murakami exhibit (which we saw at the Brooklyn Museum) is now in Spain, and I have to say, I loooove how they’re promoting the exhibit on the trains!!

I’m a big fan of Frank Chimero. His state illustrations are fantastic (when’s New York, Frank? Or Vermont, or Indiana??), and I used to have this inspirational poster as my desktop at work for a while (the “Aw, Damnit” part got to me, eventually). Anyway, Grain Edit interviewed Frank recently, and it’s really fascinating. I’m not even a graphic designer or much of an artist (though I’m known to doodle geometric shapes on notebooks at work).
The whole interview is a great read, but my favorite part is when Frank describes how he comes up with the ideas for the states. Here’s an excerpt:
Here, I’m trying out a few ideas. Something long and curling? An alligator? A fish? A manatee? Nah. That manatee doesn’t look like one. It’s too skinny. Not cowish enough. Doesn’t work well with the shape. The alligator is nice, but too predictable? His legs don’t integrate in very nicely into the shape. A train? Oh. Wow. That’s nice. Maybe we can use the smoke to trail off to the left to fill that difficult space. Ok. Bingo!
So cool. Anyway, Frank also mentions this great video he did for Good Magazine. I hadn’t seen it before and I suggest you watch it both for his great drawings and for the info.
Which, I kind of disagree with. But this shit is fun. I’d say it’s even a little much for me though.

So Jonathan Adler designed a real Barbie Dream House in honor of her 50th birthday. And. It’s. Awesome. Photos below from LAist.
LOVE those chairs. More amazing photos here
Wish you could flush potatoes using less water? Well, you’re in luck.
This article was really interesting and sad. Reason number 385983 to to use condoms: you don’t want to be paying child support on nine different kids. I’ve been posting a lot about the need to use protection lately, huh?
Remember when Pee Wee said he loves fruit salad and then Ms. Yvonne goes, “Why don’t you marry it?” and fucking Pee literally did it!? Apparently this is not a very unique event and the name for people who do this is objectum-sexuals. One lady even married the Eiffel Tower.
thanks nadia for grossing me out and making me laugh at the same time
ps. it’s better with sound
Today is CWL’s 1 year anniversary! In celebration, here are our top three posts most trafficked posts of all time (sorry, definitely not our BEST posts..)
aka – the post about the Verizon guy looking up kind of dirty vids on my work computer including Man With World’s Biggest Penis and this:
#1 – For Liz
Honorable mention goes to this dog is better than michael phelps.
Top search engine referral terms for the year: ed westwick, bulldog puppies, michael phelps, suri cruise, the hills, nom nom nom
in conclusion: Gossip Girl, Suri Cruise and penis vids are the way to go. Here’s to another year of CWL and maybe actually moving over to crapwelike.com.. somedayy, I promise.

Not bad music either.
I love Luke from this season of The Amazing Race. He’s adorable and is so sweet to his mom. I am watching tonight’s episode twice on DVR, to be honest.
Anne Marie sent me this. I’ll admit it, I don’t even really know what the Alamo is.
I think the couch dress has already been posted. But why would people pay actual money for this.
Post something here: http://www.fmylife.com/. I might have to write them about my commute to work on Monday when it was really snowy.
Judging from the number of views this video has, apparently I’m late to this. But it’s still awesome.
We’ve all had awkward moments in an “away bathroom” situation (as Liz Lemon would say), but that’s why everyone should have a toilet with the capacity to flush 3.5 LBS OF DOGFOOD. Gracefully.
I promise it’s worth the headache of clicking this link and letting it load:
