You just can't take stuffed critters anywhere with you these days! You would think they could handle the rides, especially since they were raised at the carnival games booths. Problem is, they seem to have drank too much and can't keep anything down. Credit goes to photographer Jack Griffin for these hilarious shots.…

Yesterday, we were memorized by Ghostpatrol's urban street graffiti. Today, we look at another medium he's mastered, pencil canvases. Arranged side-by-side, the pencils' surface are shaved into a flat plane making it easier for him to draw on. He then uses acrylic and ink to create… Continue
It's interesting to compare the past and the present in Jason Powell's latest photo set, "Looking into the past." He first finds old photographs of historical places at the Library of Congress, and then seamlessly blends them in with their corresponding modern day locations. Jason was inspired by both his love of… Continue
As spring approaches, many people look forward to the bloom of one of the most beautiful flowers, the cherry blossom. In China the cherry blossom symbolizes feminine beauty, while in Japan cherry blossoms are believed to exemplify the transient nature of life because of their short blooming times. Either way, everyone can agree that the bright, vibrant colors of the… Continue
Love the message behind the "think" campaign for the School of Visual Arts. Featuring everyday objects made to resemble college-ruled paper, they encourage people everywhere to be creative by giving them a place to write down their ideas.…
The thing that stands out most to me about Ghostpatrol's street graffiti is how each of his pieces are so remarkably different and original. Incredibly innovative and driven by creative impulses, Ghostpatrol has been described as dark, moody, energetic and passionate. A self taught illustrator who currently resides in Melbourne, Australia, GP specializes in fine ink… Continue
I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready to see some new icons hang out with my left nipple - 'cause truth be told, the penguin, the alligator and the little polo dude were getting kinda vapid. Besides, I heard that they have now combined forces to conquer peace and justice and upset the delicate balance of the free world. So, you might wanna wear 'em at your own risk, or not at all. You know, just to be safe.…
Stacee Kalmanovsky understands the intrinsic beauty of rain. To replicate the natural phenomenon, she created this installation of beads attached to a fishing line, hung underneath a glass ceiling. It's as if she froze time, along with the rain drops in mid-air.
According to her website: "Stacee's work is rooted in the uncanny, suggestive, and picturesque.… Continue

I'd rather hear my 6' 10" cellmate look me up and down then say "Yummy" than drive in Venice, but I will make the trek to eat at Joe's. It's one of the few places in LA where I think the service is genuinely nice, against a backdrop of consistently great tasting menus that change every time I go back.
If you're trying to score, I'd recommend sitting in the garden patio, and dine while…
1. Fantasy Football
Not having a team here in L.A. made it hard to get behind any team. I'm a Raiders fan, but they're so terrible. I really had no motivation to watch any games on TV, so would just get score updates online. Then last year, my friends finally convinced me to join a Fantasy Football league. I totally caught the bug. After drafting my team, I scheduled a lot of my life around watching as many… Continue
