  1. Fashion EXPLOSION 2005! I especially like the one on the right, which looks like the poster for Office Space.
  2. Surprisingly, improvised Russian alcohol beverages aren’t very good for you. I remember reading in Spy in the 80s about a Russian method for getting high, which was: 1) spread shoe polish on some bread 2) leave bread on the radiator all day so that aromatic substances permeate it 3) scrape as much of the polish off the bread as possible 4) choke down bread. This produced some sort of high.
  3. Happy Halloween. Here’s where to buy skulls!
  4. And now, the actual graphic FEMA uses to represent its activities. I guess this was on a Daily Show I didn’t see. It’s the eternal mandala of incompetence!

  5. Flickr presents camera tossing!
  6. Years after I stopped living in L.A. I am delighted to see that one of my favorite local madmen is still in action: The Robertson Dancer.
  7. You’ve seen these photos mislabeled as “Katrina” or some other well-known storm probably; they’re everywhere and poorly attributed. The real photographer’s gallery has all of these amazing stormchaser pictures properly labeled.
  8. This is some totally freakin awesome robot art.

  1. I actually know the camera toss guy. He hangs out at Mojo’s (among other places) in Austin and does a lot of his camera tosses at night by the neon-heavy shopfronts right by there.

    1. I’ve got to start watching that show instead of just seeing clips or wandering into the room when someone is laughing hysterically at it.

  2. The Robertson Dancer reminds me of the guy who used to go down La Cienega (dang, Stacy and I can’t remember how to spell it, but you know what I mean) and near Hollywood Blvd. with the palm fronds headdress and the overflowing shopping cart.
    We had few interesting folks like that in Ventura, too, which used to be the homeless capital of the southern california coast, until it went all gentrified.
