Babies is a beautifully filmed documentary, set to release next year, that follows the lives of “four of the world’s newest human inhabitants” (from Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco and Tokyo). I think this serves as further evidence that, at least at the beginning, we’re all really not that different.
For convenience I’ve embedded the trailer here, but to give the imagery justice I recommend watching it from here.
Perhaps the best seating for a child’s playroom EVER? Available from Jellio.
My brain hurt a little (as I’m guessing yours might) after looking at these amazing images by Korean photographer JeongMee Yoon. They’re so loaded with objects and implications that it’s difficult to sort out your own emotional response and appreciate them as simple artistic works. I’m equal parts repulsed and engrossed. Still, it’s hard not to wonder if there’s something physiological that draws us to specific colors, or whether it’s just a result of successful marketing. Be sure to pop over to JeongMee’s site to read what his intentions were with the project. Very interesting.
Interested in finding something for under $20 that will entertain your kids for… I don’t know… say… their entire childhood? Of course you are. Get on over to eBay and win yourself an auction on a “lot” of scarves. From peek-a-boo, to dress-up, to fort siding, you will NOT run out of ideas and uses for these things. Search “lot vintage scarves” and you should have yourself some options. Obviously “vintage” is optional, but the patterns from ‘back in the day’ seem far more inspired.
