I’d like to say something clever about this, but my higher brain functions have yet to return after just watching this little gem. I have never been a big Mighty Boosh fan, but maybe I need to reevaluate. Luxury Comedy is the best thing I’ve seen in a long, long time. Myco-lysergic, super-saturated dada British sketch comedy combining elements of Sid & Marty Krofft, The Banana Splits, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, and Wonder Showzen? I know, it sounds awful. But trust me, it’s brilliant.
Thank you, Dangerous Minds, for tuning in and turning me on.
My search for interesting wallpaper landed me on Olympus’ BioScapes International Digital Imaging contest page and I’m glad to report my brain is finally beginning to recover from the overload of awesomeness.

One of the reasons I love these so much is the subjects are things we take for granted. The magic comes from the change of perspective. It’s thrilling to think of an entire universe of beautiful things right under our noses, completely hidden from our vision– a universe where fly heads and stink bug eggs appear as giant alien life forms.
On this scale, wildflower seeds look like an exotic sushi dish from the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
Debbie Harry lays out the history of the pogo and shows you the proper way to do it. The video isn’t the best quality, but it is Debbie Harry bouncing up and down. If you’re anything like me, you can never have enough of that.
Classic Wrecks is your one-stop Etsy shop that will help you build the junkyard of your dreams. John Findra builds 1/24 scale models of classic automobiles and then, as they would say in the fashion industry, distresses them. I’ve always been a fan of scale modelers who build airplane crash or battle damaged armor dioramas. The idea of cutting a brand new model off the sprues, and putting it together in the exact opposite condition of factory fresh puts a big smile on my face.
Helen Killer over at Regretsy listed John’s work as her number one favorite purchase of 2011.
