Give that nerd the recognition they deserve: Nerd Merit Badges. We're crossing our fingers that nerd-sashes start popping up around the office.
Mike Mills' The Only Way Out Is Through opens this Friday at Pool Gallery, and presents a collection of drawing, pamphlets, data and music and video installations.
Rabbit on the Run's winter collection is a wee one—only three items—but it includes this limited-series sweatshirt, which looks about as cozy as curling up by the fire under a futuristic, pixellated Navajo blanket.
At this point, we can't wait for spring, but here's one reason to skip spring and summer and move right on to Fall: Opening Ceremony's collaboration with Pendleton, which hits in August. We can't wait to wear flannel again, and we're already wearing it right now! (Via Refinery29.)
While there's no comparing to the classic motorcycle boot that everyone has a pair of, I have to say I am really into this new pair I spied from Harley Davidson over the weekend. X - Jen
Aw, if we had a nickel for every time we've worn a shirt with a stain and just pretended we didn't know it was there, well, we'd be able to buy a new shirt. Central St. Martins grad Yunju Lee wants you to stop hiding those stains and be proud of them. And, with ketchup dribbles, lipstick smooches and inkblot brooches, even fake 'em if you have to!
Taylor Deupree took one Polaroid a day for all of 2008. For 2009, he's moved on to sounds, recording one sound a day and posting it on his aural blog. Our favorite so far is January 22: His cat Pixel, asleep on his desk and snoring away.
The Book Cover Archive presents a highly-curated collection of modern and classic covers, searchable by photographer, art director, publisher, author and genre. Whoever said "Don't judge a book by it's cover" obviously wasn't a graphic designer.
We're sad that Missbehave will no longer present us with a wealth of colorful pages to flip through, but we're happy that at least they're sticking around online.
Slinkachu's new book, Little People in the City, documents his art—which, if you're not paying attention, might end up stuck to the bottom of your shoe. Another project is Inner City Snail. We imagine a lot of waiting went into this one. (Via Beautiful Decay.)
Hedi Slimane's latest subject on his Diary is named Jethro Lazenby Cave. He is the son of Nick Cave and has basically blown up within the last week while he's been in Paris walking in the menswear shows. He takes the half short and half long hair to new levels while channeling his Dad and will probably be seen everywhere by summer. X - Jen
David Horvitz’s art plays with the ideas of patronage, value, and ephemerality. For one project, he’s trying to raise $1,626 for a trip to a small Okinawan island called Taketomi. If you donate more than $100 to the cause, he’ll send you an envelope filled with a rare star-sand once he gets there. At last check, he’d raised $27 toward the journey.
We'll never look at Betty White the same. This is what nightmares are made of.
Terence Koh for United Bamboo is already the best thing I've seen this year. While we're talking about Koh for a minute, remember he stars in zombie flick "Otto; or, Up with Dead People" from Bruce La Bruce due out on DVD next month. A must see for sure. X - Jen
Rob Ryan's intricate paper designs are as sweet as those little candy hearts (the ones that say "Be Mine;" not the ones that say "Let's Talk"), which is why we're giving away an exclusive signed Rob Ryan print (from a limited-edition of 49) and five copies of his new book, This is For You, published by Chronicle Books. Enter now through February 11. If you win, give it to a loved one—or just keep it for yourself.
