Blog of the Day: Australia in the ’80s

The Powerhouse museum is putting together an exhibit on Australia in the 1980’s and have created a blog to assist with their research. It’s pretty awesome. There are great music videos, tv shop clips, old video games, etc.  I can’t stop watching the Adam Ant video from the first post this morning. Get it HERE.

Blog of the Day: Board of Hi Five

This is our pal Steve’s blog – and I loved his last post on the top five NYC subway ads:

Dr. Zizmor and 1888 Margarita are classics – but this may be my favorite

..about which the BoHF says “Good cause, but scary. I wonder if the person who got his eyes knows all the gruesome shit they saw on Law and Order.”

love that.  see all five here.

Blog of the day: Suggested Donation

This blog might only be interesting to the Museum Studies and  Library and Information Science crowd, but Suggested Donation is an great blog about museum and archive related things in NYC and beyond. I’m a little jealous that I don’t have my own museum blog but I know I wouldn’t be able to  keep up on the museum news like these kids, nor could I design such a snazzy website. Instead, I’ll just direct you to their blog. enjoy.

Blog of the Day: Boutique of the Week

Found this blog’s author on Yelp – but it’s totally awesome and I think it will re-vamp my shopping in the city.  Here she reviews one of my favorite boutiques in the city, Pippin – where I found my clocky and favorite topaz ring.

“Pippin Vintage Jewelry is like entering a flea market without the haggling patrons and piles of junk.  With vintage pieces discovered mainly on the East Coast, this boutique offers a variety of affordable items from pearl strands, brass watches, turqoise rings and even clip-on earrings.  Their eclectic collection spans from the pre-1900s to the 1980s, but they also have some re-worked pieces like Victorian jacket buttons made into rings (around $40).  Their prices are affordable and not typical of Manhattan, with the range from $1-$200+.  You can find a great necklace or ring for $25, and the higher-end diamonds and rubies are displayed inside the glass case.

Pippin has enough eccentric pieces that you can make your own creation, like antique keys that could be added to a long layering necklace, or pins that could double as barrettes.  When looking through the packed store, make sure to take some time and open the shallow drawers filled with random extras that cost less than $5 and make you feel like you you’ve discovered a treasure at the bottom of the bargain bin (without the actual rummaging).

Jewelry is not their only specialty, they also have a wide variety of accessories including vintage bags, clutches, belts, scarves, gloves, hats, and more, such as a cosmetic carved mirror from a 1920s Norwegian cruise ship ($30).  Also check out their vintage home goods store next door, where you can find Bauhaus vases, 1950s Coca-Cola crates, and even obscure black-and-white photos for $1.”

Now that you know my jewelry secret shopping spot (located on 17th St. between 6th & 7th) go here for more ideas from this blog.

Blog of the Day: What Chuck Wore

This blog confused me at first because I thought it was called “What Chuck Whore.”  Now I realize that it’s actually a blog dedicated the fashion of Chuck Bass on GossipGirl which is actually a subject entirely worthy of its own blog. Congrats to the costume designers or wardrobe people or whatever they’re called. Check it out HERE. Also I love the blog’s tagline “…why does he wear so much purple?”

Blog of the Day: Stuff My Girlfriend Likes

.. very much in the same style as CWL, I love this blog and I think it’s sweet.  This guy says: “Sometimes Mr. Internet shows me stuff I’m sure my girlfriend (“Roo”) will like. Rather than put it all in my main tumblelog, or send her multiple emails a day, I’ll post them here. Maybe you’ll like them, too.”  And it’s stuff like this!

I love all these things!  Which means, I am this guy’s girlfriend?  Well I guess not, but his girlfriend certainly has good taste.  More here.

Blog of the Day: Cats Are Always Doing Shit

Even though I’ve seen a couple of these videos/pics before, there are still a lot of funny cat videos that were new to me and that makes this site catriffic.

Cats are always up to something. This blog offers documentary proof of their possibly sinister activities: photos and videos of cats behaving in odd, suspicious, devious and destructive ways.

For example….

Another Blog of the Day: Tweeting Too Hard

Billed as “Where self-important tweets get the recognition they deserve,” this site lets you vote on how douchey some tweets are by awarding back pats.  Some of my faves below:

@StefanPommepuy is having a private OPEN HOUSE at his $6M Hollywood Hills house. wine & hors d’oeuvres! Invitation only. so email to RSVP, & for address 🙂

@triciagoyer I have 53 more pages to read on The Swiss Courier galleys. The book is hard to put down … even when I wrote it!

@MKReflections I make multi-million $ decisions on a regular basis — why is it soooo difficult to decide what to do with my hair?

blog of the day: gold kit blog

for serious. this is gold kit’s real blog. look, the address is www.goldkit.com/blog.asp!

for all of you who don’t know what gold kit is, it’s those people on tv commercials all the time asking you to mail your extra gold to them in an envelope. because we all have extra gold lying around…  i didn’t watch this year but i heard they had a commercial in the superbowl– or maybe i’m thinking cash4gold. whatever. same difference.  this service would be great if you were a pirate or you wanted to cash in last year’s grill like these people below. the blog appears to mostly feature food with gold in it and white people wearing grillz. enjoy.

Blog of the day: New York Shitty

newyorkshitty.com
I like this blog because it features dog shit and general happenings around my neighborhood and others in BK (but mostly Greenpoint). Here is the about page…

About

As you can probably deduce from the title of this blog, I live in Green Brownpoint, Brooklyn. During my one block trek to the Franklin Corner Store one April day (in 2006) to get a sandwich, I was astonished at the sheer quantity of dog shit I encountered.

Green Street is not the easiest sidewalk to negotiate: the sidewalks are uneven and pock-marked with holes. Dodging piles of dog shit every five feet does not make this task any easier, much less when carrying delicious Cuban sandwiches. It was during this adventure through Poopland that I had the following epiphany:

1. This is ridiculous.

2. I wonder if the people who see fit to use my block as a pissoir would like it if I took a shit in the middle of their living room? Probably not.

3. This is like walking through a fucking mine field, so maybe…

4. if Queen Noor (and Lady Diana before her)  can lobby against the use of land mines, perhaps I can raise awareness about the plague of unattended dog shit in my neighborhood. Call me the Dog Shit Queen of Greenpoint New York Shitty. I’ve been called worse.

What you can expect this blog to feature:

1. Dog shit. When I see dog shit I will:

A. Take a picture of it
B. Make note of the date and the location of said bowel movement

2. Generate “Crap Maps” as I see fit. These maps will reflect the data I compile (as outlined in #1) and will (hopefully) provide an easy reference for anyone who wants to know where worst (s)hit areas are— and perhaps even where the worst offenders live. It is prudent to assume that if these dog owners are too lazy to clean up their own dog shit, they probably do not take much time walking their dogs in the first place.

3. If and/or when I find a particularly choice specimen (READ: a particularly LARGE, sculptural or just plain repulsive bowel movement), it will be showcased as “The Dung of the Day”.

I am accepting submissions from the public. Greenpoint, Park Slope (as if), Williamsburg, Bushwick, Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Red Hook (especially Red Hook— I like Red Hook almost as much as I like Greenpoint!) or anywhere else in New York Shitty.

It’s much more than dogshit though, it’s funny signs, featured restaurants, neighborhood gossip, cat photos, etc.

Our friends have a blog too.

It’s called thenewgay.net (whatever you do, do not type .com…trust me). I just read a hilarious and oh-so-true post on the perks of being single by DC’s Other Steph. The part that hit home hardest for me was the last point: You Don’t Have to Worry About Disappointing Your Whole Entire Family When You Break Up With Them

It is, however, a bummer for those of you whose parents are more proud of your sig nif’s accomplishments than your own. If only you had won all those trophies. If only you had gotten your PhD and learned how to play the upright bass. Too bad, just don’t break up.”

Blog of the Day: ffffound.com


I think I listed this site once before, but I’m having a slow day and I think it’s worthy of its own post. ffffound.com is a really great site to go to for inspiration. People are constantly tagging and posting new interesting images on the site so you can sit all day and reload and new images will continue to pop up- and you can follow images threads according to user and theme (sounds complicated- just try it).

ps. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but this is my 4th straight post in a row. I’m blogging to procrastinate for my reading for my class tomorrow. any procrastination/concentration tips would be appreciated.

Wow, who knew?

Those two annoying and forgetable Project Runway designers are actually a couple. The video doesn’t work for me, but I don’t have sound anyway. Let me know if it’s at all amusing. Anyone think that the designers this year haven’t been all that impressive?

And for my own attempt at BOD: The Onion AV Club does a really good Project Runway recap . I like how they make fun of Jennifer: “Jennifer was delusional about her own aesthetic right to the end: ‘I brought something different to Project Runway … with my surrealism.’ That word doesn’t mean what you think it means, Jennifer.”

I just realized Jennifer could read this, and now I feeel bad. Sorry, Jennifer.

Now that’s some crap I like.  Especially the donuts.  Nora can have the stickers.  But, this blog is super cool and is now making it into Becko’s BOD feature, which we have sucked at keeping up.  I think Nora might really like this site’s stuff on design and graphics, (you had me at font alert!) .. and also the Renegade Craft fair recap.  I really like this post of animals made of letters (another two of my favorite things!!)

Obvs., that one is for Nora.  From Bembo’s Zoo.

Your Guide to Free Booze

This is more of a mailing list than a blog but I thought I would post it anyways. It truly is your guide to free booze in the city. My Open Bar gives you a weekly schedule of promo events and parties with hella cheap drink deals or open bar. It also rates the events and provides clever little blurbs ala vice do’s and dont’s to help you decide whether they’re worth the effort. I feel like this would really come in handy when you have a guest in town and you don’t know what to do with them.
