Monday morning moment of 'splody goodness

I feel I must take issue with the title of this video.  The content quite clearly demonstrates that microwaves make things AWESOME!

And yeah, I'm really only posting this as an excuse to send you here  ...

Fashion Friday: Twinkle Toes

We interrupt your usual eye candy for some hotness of a different sort.


DIY light up shoe clips!

Handle with Care

Christmas is over.  The New Year is upon us.  Time to take down the tree and carefully pack away the ornaments.

Or not.
Photographer Alan Sailer works out of his garage shooting things with a high-speed pellet rifle and photographing the results using a homemade flash unit. An interesting series of photographs he has, titled ‘The War Against Christmas’, involves filling Christmas tree ornaments with various things and shooting them for unique explosions of texture and color.
Check out his full photo set on flickr.
