5 Things I Love for Friday #150

  1. Afterthoughts by Sougwen – I bought this print because, well, it’s beautiful. And it will go nicely with some of the other mildly-Japanese-influenced artwork I have in our livingroom. But really, the entire inPRINT site is worth checking out for great artwork at ridiculously affordable prices.
  2. Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland preview images – Tim Burton, Lewis Carroll & Johnny Depp–a match made in bizarro heaven. I’m so stoked for this movie. And after seeing a hint of the aesthetic direction in these preview images I’m even more giddy.
  3. Smashing Pumpkins art direction – Here’s an interview with Frank Olinsky, the long-time art director of the album artwork for the Smashing Pumpkins. Cool to see original sketches and hear about the conversations he had with Billy Corgan. I always really liked the Box Set.
  4. Stackable Tiffin lunch tins – I’m a proud member of the Brownbag Lunch portion of the population. But instead of these awesome stackable tins, I rock leftover yogurt containers and chili-stained Tupperware. These would make my lunchtimes so much more fashionable and exotic. That is, if you can make tuna fish or veggie burgers exotic.
  5. How I’ll always remember Michael Jackson [video] – As the world mourns and argues about the man himself, I can’t deny what influence he had on me growing up. From listening to the Thriller album on headphones on repeat pre-Kindergarten, to his other-worldly dance moves and showmanship, to whateverthehell Captain EO was and his involvement with Disney World (I remember lots of lazers)…whenever I think of the ’80s and my childhood, this guy will always be at the forefront of that memory.
