Bread and jam for fascists

What is Maneki Neko?

Not for Kids stamp drawings. (via Sugar 'n Spicy)

FoodStyler. The characters are especially fun.

Australian Aboriginal art.

A nice interview with Liza Lou, bead artist, MacArthur Fellow, and all-around insomniac. (Maybe not, but it makes sense, eh?)

Similarly, Steve DeFrank's Lite Brite art.

Gallery of school uniforms in the UK. (via iconomy)

Communist store windows. (via Grow-a-Brain).

Player Piano adverts.

Seasons Greetings: Holiday Cards from the Archives of American Art. Some of these are beautiful, but I wonder: Why is the giant angel setting fire to that tree? And what the hell is going on here?

Anti-smoking stamps.

Florence through the lens of Helmet Newton is a strange place, indeed.

Vaudeville slang. (via Incoming Signals)

They That Go Down To The Sea In Ships: a photographic essay.

Broton Labs: death rays and killer robots. Cool. (via Boing Boing)

Bigger isn't always better...Tumbleweed Tiny House Company and The Mobile Hermitage, "a freestanding moveable miniature house that operates entirely from battery power."

Konzentrationslager: concentration camps depicted using Legos.

Commercial animation art from Ray Patin Studios. (via milk and cookies).

NB: Apologies for the long silences between posts, but the real world is taking over with a vengeance. An RSS feed has been installed--an adequate but not entirely satisfactory solution. But it will have to do for now. Until next time, comrades. (And thanks to vril for the suggestion.)

Sushi fortune-telling.

"The Nazi-Era Provenance Internet Portal provides a searchable registry of objects in U.S. museum collections that changed hands in Continental Europe during the Nazi era (1933-1945)."

Also, a Virtual interview with Adolph Hitler. Very well done. (via b3ta) And some of his artwork. (via Grow-a-Brain).

Post-It Theater.

Darwinian Poetry: using 'natural selection' to create poetry.

Atari artwork. (via Pop Culture Junk Mail)

Speech accent archive at George Mason University: people of various national activities talk about Stella and grocery shopping.

Minimal porn.

Popular Science puts together a list of the worst jobs in science. Aw, the poor bastards. (via Sensible Erection)

Devices of Wonder. Lovely.

Graphic Design in travel ephemera from the '20s and '30s.

Belated, behind & bothered

"How to paint your own Vermeer". Imitation, sincerity, flattery, etc.

"Self-defence with a Walking-stick: The Different Methods of Defending Oneself with a Walking-Stick or Umbrella when Attacked under Unequal Conditions (Part I)". Part I? (via Incoming Signals)

Forensic art.

Terrific watercolor journals. (via Sugar'n Spicy)

Victorian studio portraits.

Animal babies. Hm. Not quite sure why they're included with the other projects at the Neuroscience Art Gallery. Oh wait, here we go.

Embodying Indus Life: Terracotta Figurines from Harappa.

The New York Surveillance Camera Players: "We protest against the use of surveillance cameras in public places...[and] manifest our opposition by performing specially adapted plays directly in front of these cameras. We use our visibility to explode the cynical myth that only those who are 'guilty of something' are opposed to being surveilled by unknown eyes." (via J-walk)

Forgotten NY. A fantastic site brimming with NYC photos, history, trivia. Highlights include the annual Mermaid Parade, door carvings in lower Manhatten and the parrots of Brooklyn College.

Also, Weird New Jersey: a travel guide with a twist. All manner of curious beasties (see the chicken with the human face!), people (Wavin' Willie says hi!) and locales (Midgetville!) I'd direct link but blame the frames.

Bagpipes go to the Movies: Bagpipes in movies and the people who make obsessive websites about the phenomena.

Atari industrial design drawings. (via Pop Culture Junk Mail)

Photographs of statue's asses. (via b3ta)

Hee. What some people think guitars sound like.

Is it really September already?

An article about Chinese tattoos. The more you know...

Ink art by Michael Phillips.

A gallery of mushroom clouds. (via Grow-a-Brain)

Beautiful landscape monoprints by Ernestine Ruben.

A collection of Beatles concert tickets.

Hee. Robert Frost Greeting Cards.

Cool stuff by Dave McKean (of Sandman fame), Shephard Fairey (of Obey Giant fame), and others at the Mary Karnowsky Gallery. (via dublog)

Dust jackets from Whitaker's Almanack, Tom Swift and the Modern Library.

Find out how much you'd weigh on other worlds.

"Associations is an interactive internet installation designed to allow you to ponder the relationship between some central terms and concepts. You are presented with five words....[and] invited to contemplate the relationship between the central word and the surrounding ones, and select the one which you think is more strongly associated...When the installation has collected enough data about you, it calculates your normality index score, an indication of how your associations compare to those of other visitors." Interesting idea, but I never did get to the end of it.

Ja! (via Conscientious)

Nota bene: As you and I both know, weblogs are all about freshness. So I humbly beg forgiveness if I've bored you with any of the above links. Have been away for ages (two months) and still need some time to catch up. Merci.
