There are more (above and below) where that came from.

From the Virtual Shoe Museum:
....................

Our current homepage is dedicated to French photographer Michel Tcherevkoff.

4yu567

He began his career with no formal photography training, but an insatiable curiosity for all things artistic, visual and mechanical.

5micheltrfcherevkoff9

His photography immediately caught the eye of the creative community with his signature Technicolor palette and avant garde design. His signature style is reality with a twist.

The beginning of July the French version of his book "Shoe Fleur: A Footwear Fantasy" will be launched in Paris, with an exhibition.

Strange Days Basting Brush

Yyi7y

That's different.

From the website:

    Flexible Silicone Basting Brush

    With its extra-long flexible handle this brush bends to any angle, allowing you to reach around your food both on the grill and in the oven.

    The silicone brush takes loads of liquid and sauce, reducing the number of return trips to your bowl.

    Curves to sit upright so surfaces stay clean.

    Dishwasher safe.

    16.5"L.

'Short, pleasingly weird and so minimal... that it's open to a multitude of interpretations'

Charles McGrath in yesterday's New York Times story on why Matt Harding's "Dancing" video (above) "... is an almost perfect piece of Internet art."

The Meaning of Existence — by Les Murray

Whitespace_20h_x_119_3
Whitespace_20h_x_119_3
Everything except language
knows the meaning of existence.
Trees, planets, rivers, time
know nothing else. They express it
moment by moment as the universe.

Even this fool of a body
lives it in part, and would
have full dignity within it
but for the ignorant freedom
of my talking mind.

Halloween teeth that fit — Episode 2: Cheap at 25 times the price

3tt67t

Back on May 18, 2005, I featured what was then the new new thing in cosmetic dentistry: slip-on teeth made by a dentist the day of your visit.

At $1,500 to $2,500 they seemed a steal compared to the price of a real cosmetic dentistry makeover.

That was then, this is now.

From the dental skunkworks comes a 2008 iteration that will set you back only $39.98 — no ups.

Bonus: You don't even have to leave home to get them 'cause you order online and they're delivered right to your front door.

From the website:
....................

Cosmetic Teeth®

For a beautiful smile without expensive trips to the dentist

2ddryd

Just mold over upper teeth and clip into position.

Hides gaps and crooked teeth.

Wear while smoking or drinking (not for eating), won't affect speaking.

Fits securely and comfortably over teeth, bondings, veneers and crowns.

For sizing, measure width of four front teeth:

Small: 1-1/8"W.

Large: 1-5/16"W.

downforeveryoneorjustme.com — Best homepage ever?

Oiouji

I'm gonna give it (above) the nod over Google.

You?

Long story short: 24-year-old San Francisco Internet engineer Alex Payne, who works at Twitter, told Brad Stone in last Sunday's New York Times front page story, "I had seen that question posed so often."

So this past March he put up a website to answer it.
