  • Have You Seen Me? A Memorial to Slavery. Artist Talk & Kickstarter Party

    I heart PGH

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:31 am
    Pittsburgh artist Alexi Morrisey is in the final 2 weeks of funding for his Kickstarter project for “Have You Seen Me? A Memorial to Slavery.” One of the reasons I think this project is worth a look is that it brings together several different types of story telling medias – milk bottles, advertising, oral history – to tell a story. One of the many interesting things about this project is that it uses the 1980’s “kid on the milk carton” to create a memorial to slavery: By putting the faces of real slaves on hand-crafted, archival, milk bottles, we…

It's really no big deal because I will soon have zucchini and beans and carrots and such. For now, my neighbors are throwing zucchini around like confetti because ZOMG EVERYONE GREW ZUCCHINI THIS YEAR.  I mean, I have gone through at least 10 or 15 happy little squash even without picking a single one out of my own garden. That means there has been lots of baking, but also lots of zoodles have started to happen. I know I'm late…

One of the funniest promos features Mitt Romney — and he wants pancakes.

    Andy Quayle
    1 Aug 2015 | 12:06 pm
    I recently received an Etherno training disc made from non-toxic, pet-safe material, that is, FDA approved food-grade silicon. The disc is small, measuring 17.5 cm (which is 6.8”) in diameter and is dishwasher safe. Now, nothing about this frisbee particularly screamed “pick me!” but even in my hands it seemed pretty durable with enough give to roll it up like a taco. At first I wasn’t very sure about how my dog, a 3 year old Border Collie with a passionate love for Frisbees and a penchant for destroying plastic, was going to pick it up as it doesn’t really have a lid/border around…

    As we get busier and busier in our adult lives, it gets harder to find the time to many tasks, such as getting new glasses, without a loss of pay from missing work to go do just that. Because of this, companies are finding more ways to make such products available online, so that you can order from the convenience of your home and you’re not limited to normal business hours. One such site is GreatEyeGlasses.com. While this does not allow you to skip going to an eye doctor (because you do require your prescription), it does save you the additional time of browsing their shop (which sometimes…

Instead of being at the whim of the store, hoping that what you normally use is in stock, and that it costs the same as you paid a month ago, we join subscription clubs. We sign up, pay a monthly fee, and get whatever we need delivered right to our doorstep (hopefully before we run out and need it again). I was offered the change to take a look at Soap.club.
