Holiday Cheer: Iowa Eggnog circa 1977

We’re on a little break till next year, but in the spirit of the holidays, I thought I’d share this with y’all.

My parents say they made this recipe for a party back in the day and had to cut it with 3 gallons of store-bought nog. I’ll be making it this week! Happy Holidays

Brad Pitt’s Sustainable City Completes First Six Homes

Congratulations to everyone involved!

More YouTube goodness: Sungha Jung, child prodigy. Yes, we're spending too much time on the YouTubes these days, but when my friend emailed this link to me, I was blown away. You will be too. Enjoy!

Art Basel Miami: Let the Games Begin!

Kim Joon, Bird Land-Armani (detail), 2008

Just got this great summary from Artkrush who will be on the scene again this year bringing you all the goodness to be found. Be sure to keep checking back as the month develops…

"?Talk
of bursting bubbles and crashing markets has bled through the front
page and into the art sections of today's news. And so, as crates of
canvas arrive in Miami postmarked from around the world, the most
coveted position available in today's art world is that of the
spectator."

Magic Pen Writes in Helvetica from Plexifilm

Got this in my inbox today. The hilarious group over at Plexifilm [same guys who made 'Helvetica'] are giving away official Helvetica-writing pens with any purchase of ‘Objectified’ swag. Ha! I love this idea. If it had command-z as well, I’d buy a gross…

Magic pen writes in Helvetica

Ahhhh… technology. The geniuses at Plexifilm have spent the past two
years developing a Sharpie pen that actually writes in Helvetica! This
pen is so experimental that it’s priceless… literally. You can’t buy
one, but you can get one free with any Helvetica-related purchase
(DVD, T-shirt, etc.). Get your free pen while they last. It’s a great
gift for that person in your life with sloppy handwriting…

* Warning: if you are John Downer or Marian Bantjes then the pen will
actually write in Helvetica. Otherwise, your results may vary. Do not
swallow. Keep away from open flame and co-workers. May cause
drowsiness.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts.
