    Because you're young-old. A similar concept to skinny-fat.

    Surprising accurate. I had someone else say the same thing last week.

    I'm more a fan of the Hollister Hovey blog look. The 'clutter of curiosities' and randomly assembled antiques.

    Hmm, maybe you have some taste issues? [​IMG]

    Just kidding.

    Why not post some stuff you like then.

    You might find this to be interesting crazyquik ...and, I guess, anyone who is a fan of The Da Vinci Code [​IMG]

    It is covered in sharp spikes, even on its handle, to remind the user of Christ's suffering

    A mother-of-pearl rosary is hidden in a velvet lined cavity in the handle, and the whip, with three chains ending in spiked ivory balls, kept within the shaft.

    I'm a believer in keeping it simple, this should apply to masturbation too ...

    ^ I like that. [​IMG] It's pretty tame for Mendini.

    I really like these pieces, the desk in particular. Who makes these pieces?

    I was at a flea market this weekend, and a vendor was selling framed prints of historic maps of local cities. I asked if he had any unframed one, and he confided that he was just buying them off the internet, and then making his money as a frame shop.

    So, anyway, here is roughly what they look like. They are about $25 on eBay, plus shipping. Lots of US cities, many of them booming industrial cities (from 100 years ago, of course). Size is like 50" x 35", although you can get them as small as post cards. They also have a small legend at the bottom, with usually 25-50+ 'points of attraction', like major churches, universities, factories, town hall, etc marked. I plan to get them for the city I live in (my block is visible) and perhaps a city I grew up near.
