don’t tell anyone I’m doing a secret post mid-week, okay?



I couldn’t help it. I found too many cool things that must be shared immediately or else I’ll explode from an..tici…..pation (Rocky Horror Picture Show?)


+ make: DIY Braided Hex Nut Bracelet–new favourite

+ must see: A Love Story GANT by Michael Bastian

+ vacate: Yunak Evleri Cappadocia Cave Hotel in Turkey

+ eat: Garlic Schiacciata with Cherry Roma Tomatoes


Okay, that’s it for now, I don’t want to give away everything before the weekend

Happy Wednesday!




Love XI, Collage, 2006

When I first saw these images, I was rendered speechless.

British artist John Stezaker… what can I say… just amazing.


John Stezaker - Cinema 1 I   - The Approach

Cinema 1 I, Collage, 2005

Stezaker makes collages of old images–classic movie stills, vintage postcards and book illustrations–into new images.

I can’t even imagine the pain he must have felt cutting up old bromides–I was almost emotional looking at this work just thinking about destroying these images to create new ones.



Pair IV, 2007



Marriage XXXII, 2007

John Stezaker - Mask LXV  - The Approach

Mask LXV, 2007

If you’re lucky enough to be in London right now he has an exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery that you should go to and tell me all about so I can live vicariously through you (please).


*note: apparently¬† “Steaz,” “Steaze,” or “Steazy” has a variety of meanings according to more urban sources. I simply shortened the artist’s name because I wanted to sound gangster and clever, and I am not implying any other meaning by this hyphenation other than to be witty.

Obviously I was ill this past week, which is why I didn’t post something super awesome last Sunday.

I’m not 100% yet but I’m over being sick (mentally).

So incubus of viral plague or not, I am giving you TWO posts to make up for it.

No need for applause, though I do enjoy the encouragement.
