things on the internet that are awesome

December 29th, 2010

Having been gone for a week or so, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by the internet. I am actually afraid of looking at my rss reader it’s so large. So I thought I’d go through my bookmarks instead. And hey there are some cool things on these internets that I forgot about. Check it out.

I think my new year’s resolution this year will be to see more art. I mean really get off my butt and go see the art not click the art. I wish I could have seen this amazing piece that combins a piano piece by Satie and origami which lasted an entire night. You can read about it on the upon a fold blog–a fantastic blog and shop too.  The resolution begins tomorrow by going to the exhibition called Handmade Meaning: The Value of Craft in Victorian and Contemporary Culture. It runs Dec. 17 through Feb. 6th at the James Watrous Gallery here in Madison and a friend of mine has some crocheted hair pieces in it that I am eager to see.  For those of you not local you can see more photos of the exhibition here.

I’m sure I wont be able to see the work of Victor Dubrovsky in person anytime soon, but you can almost feel it just by looking at the pictures.  I am quite taken with this wolf, but all of his work is pretty amazing. He even has some needle felting tips (this is for you, Helen!)–via well-crafted

It may not neccessarily be art, but it’s still awesome and afforable: Abbey from Aethetic Outburst has an etsy shop called The Eight Dollar Holler, where she sells all the good vintage bits she can find for 8bucks. Nice, right?

I would pay a lot more than eight bucks for someone to bring me buttermilk chicken in a waffle right now or even smoked salmon in a waffle or really anything in a waffle. Oh my god this sandwich looks good.

but that’s not going to happen, so might just make this. or maybe waffles.

Posted in inspiration.

  1. Waffles sound so good right now…

    Hmm, it seems wrong that I focused on that instead of that amazing art, but it’s raining, we’re stuck indoors and I finished eating the Christmas cake yesterday…

    Ugh, now you’ve got me wanting to make mole. Except the recipe I usually use (a Rick Bayless one) has about 40 ingredients and is an epic undertaking. Maybe I’ll just drag my family to La Meztiza instead…

    Cool links! I had a Belgian waffle for breakfast this morning. Those things must be at least 500 calories. But it was my birthday. And I hereby declare a Birthday waffle far superior to a birthday cake.

    That piano/ folding thing is so noteworthy. I only knew one piece of Satie’s before reading this post, and it’s a gem (Gymnopedie No. 1). Now I feel like I need to learn more about him. The exhibit sounds wonderful! I’ll take that pledge with you, to see more art this year. I usually spend my extra clams on fabric and music, but maybe art in person needs to take a front seat. Thanks for the post!

    The site looks great Meg. And I just about died with delight at the felted animals. Thanks for the link!
