…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mansory Renovatio?

Mansory Renovatio

Mansory doesn’t do subtle supercars.

Their latest project, called the Renovatio, is based on a Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren, and features a modified supercharger, new wheels, tons of carbon fiber additions, a tricked out interior, and plenty of gold paint.

The end result is a 700 horsepower beast that is guaranteed to turn heads.

…It’s Things Thursday: Oakley Medusa?

Oakley Medusa

Unless you’re a Burning Man regular, or your rock band is about to go big on MTV, I don’t think you need Oakley’s Medusa line of Hat & Goggles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t want them.

Featuring leather dreadlocks, snap on eyewear, and enough post-apocalyptic style to make Mel Gibson blush, the Medusa line definitely isn’t for the subtle, bit if you want to stand out, then I can’t think of anything better.

…Only you can prevent forest fires?

Fake Fire Extinguisher

How do fake fire extinguishers help prevent forest fires?

Simple: The medium is the message.

By installing these wooden fire extinguishers in the Table Mountain National Park, Animal Farm hopes to show that “it is almost impossible to stop a wild fire once it has started”. Thus, “using a real fire extinguisher on one would be as effective as using the wooden one” and “the only way to stop the fires is to prevent them”.

In addition to being a powerful message, the extinguishers were also carved by The Carpenters Shop, a “Non Governmental Organization set up to teach woodwork skills to the homeless and unemployed”; meaning this is an all-around feel good project.

Simple and subtle, yet powerful.

I love it!

…Richard Sajas does embroider-graffiti?

Embroider-Graffiti

With a bit of creative embroidery, Richard Saja turns ordinary Toile de Jouy print into something extraordinary.

Though TdJ print isn’t usually my style, I could definitely make a compromise for an embroider-graffitied piece like this. It’s subtle yet humorous, and you could keep it with other pieces of fancy furniture knowing that it’s got a surprise waiting for anyone that is willing to get close.
