And back up, too

Holy moly, more awesome posters by awesome Amy Martin! At 826 in LA, of course. (I always feel funny writing that, because it's not the address of the LA place, only the SF place...whatever, I'm just trying to edit reality.)


This one is my favorite but they're all awesome. We own three from series one and might need this one, too.

Check out Amy's site - the Tiny Vaudeville posters are great.

I've always loved matchbooks. I'm really sorry restaurants don't offer them anymore, even though I know it's the smoking thing. But they're so much fun to collect, which is why I want:

this book


this book.

(Sorry about the crappy Amazon pictures.)

Drink me

Okay, I'm mellowing on you, catalogue. (See below.)

Look, it's another 'not-a'! These are not those horrible little plastic cups that are thin and weird and easy to squish.

They're ceramic, natch. Still too small, though.

Boom car

The MoMA store rocks; the MoMA catalogue, on the other hand, does not. But it's not the products inside, it's the way they select them. Too many scarfs and notecards - this ain't the Met.


Love this. It's more a wristlet size and I'm sure the sound quality is awful, I just like the way it looks.

Leads in performance

Okay, it's a little bit hard to see (and I'm too lazy to tinker with the photo on a Sunday morning) but I loved this. It was set into the floor at what is now a Honda dealer - so it's a little sad, really. But check out the awesome rocket logo. Atomic age!

I've been in an uncoveting rut recently, I think. I spend too much time in Trader Joe's, where the packaging is awful.

But check this out - IKEA getting into the stove biz. Kid stove, that is.

This is important because most fridges either look like this, or cost a lot. The IKEA one has burners that glow, man. At least that's what I think they were doing. And all for $99.

Of course you could put this together yourself out of bits and pieces from the as-is section.
