maybe allposters.com isn’t that bad

I always thought AllPosters.com was kind of just for buying that “Hang in There” poster with the cat, or a glow in the dark Bob Marley poster, but turns out they have some cute shit, like the book posters I posted about recently and these adorable guitar wall decals:

And I kind of like this New York set:

Overdue

It feels like years since I’ve posted  on CWL, so I’m going to make up for it now.

First, let’s look at this kitchen: great color and hardware, no? I think it’s cute.

Oh I’m hilarious. Check out that awesome headline.

Anyway, these are candlesticks. But they look like plugs. Best.

Need a new rug? Meow you don’t!

A few of us here at CWL have moved or moved into new apartments recently, and I for one have been on the hunt for a new living room rug. Well, I should say that I WAS on the hunt until I found this one:

Only $29! What a steal!

I want to be burried in the middle of this circle

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!”

Your vote required – which bathing suit is more likely to appear in your nightmares?

So my sister and I had a race tonight to find the world’s ugliest bathing suit. Here are the three that I think are the absolute worst. Please vote on which one you believe to be most unflattering.

Option A

From Victoria’s Secret for $164 (I shit you not)

Option B

Also from Vicky’s, but amazinly on sale for $34 (they’re practically giving them away…gee, I guess NOBODY WANTED TO BUY IT)

Option C

From Delias for $29.50

Snoop Bolly Dog

Yo, what up. This Big Snoop Dogg. Represent the Punjabi. Aye ya, hit em with this

Snoop Dog makes his Bollywood debut in a movie called Singh is Kinng. I’m going to netflix the crap out of this movie- it sounds amazing. From BBC…

Fusing hip hop and bhangra, Dogg appears in the film with leading Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, singing the eponymous title track.The song has already made it to the top of the Bollywood music charts and is a hit at Indian nightclubs.

I really like it and yes, it’s also a great excuse to post this adorable picture of Suri, whom you all know is the most freakishly adorable child in the universe.

But seriously, Katie’s haircut….could I pull it off?

PS: Emily and I just watched ‘Mad Money’ and I want the two hours of my life back.

Thanks to pal Drew for sending this my way. He said “My guess is she’ll think it’s ugly but it’s still cool furniture.”

Spot on, Drew. Actually, it’s not that it’s ugly, it’s that it’s messy. Why would I want a messy table? I wouldn’t.

I think this is supposed to be cute or something…maybe romantic? If so, it’s beyond me, although I do like the grey/black fading in the numbers and the hot pink. But yeah, the big design element with the “you” and “me” business is…meh…I dunno

pimp brush

JIC you are on the go (or in prison) and need something that’s envio-friendly (and can’t be turned into a stabbing device).

Seriously though, I was reading some blog that named this one of the top 40 “green” things (note: boogers were not eligible) and I think they were confused because they said the brush was “by No-Shank,” when it’s clearly for prisons to use so that inmates don’t revolt.

A very, very clever cover to a very, very brilliant essay

This is the cover for the new edition of Walter Benjamin’s The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction that will be a part of Penguin’s Great Ideas series:

The essay is also great. If you are looking for a great piece of cultural criticism, you can read the entire essay on marxists.org.
