Oh, Stapler of the Week, where do you find all your pretty toys?

You have to respect someone with such a singular focus. There are so many beautiful things in this world, it’s hard to devote yourself to just one.

I’ve always wondered how to keep taxidermy looking fresh. Do you have to rub oils and creams on it to keep the flesh from cracking? The thought just gives me the heebie-jebbies.

As much as I love and covet this stuff, I never really want to lay a hand on it. There’s something at the back of my mind that expects that the second I touch a stuffed squirrel it’s going to start wriggling.


Crappy Taxidermy is a tumblr site dedicated to odd or shoddy animal preservation.

Just lovely.


Please give Fishs Eddy your money, they so totally deserve it.

For 25 years, Fishs Eddy has sold vintage dishware from diners, roadhouses, airlines, and their own unique new designs. About two years ago, their upper west side location closed and, as far as I can tell, they only have one location left (B’way + 19th).

I make a habit of trawling their website every few months, but seeing so many items on sale today makes me a little antsy.

Get your wallets at the ready and head on over.

Once again, I thank the internet for an endless supply of baffling treasures. Tonight’s treat is from this site, which appears in my bookmarks as “knoppen.” It’s an incredible catalog of Cliff Muskiet’s thirty-year collection of flight attendant’s uniforms–literally hundreds of airlines are showcased.

These are just a few of my favorites.

I think the best part might be the heartbroken mannequin.

If only Otis didn’t gleefully destroy everything he loves most…

Joel Johnson, proving that leaving Boing Boing makes him no less rad, has purchased, scanned, and posted the original paste up of Wally Wood’s 22 Panels that Always Work.

It’s posted in six different resolutions, collect em all.

22 Panels, if you’re unfamiliar, was a collection of panels Wood drew as aid to prevent himself from exerting too much effort on any one piece. This was later reproduced ad infinitum by Marvel Comics’ staff and handed from one budding artist to the next. A universal cheat sheet.
