…[ 2 one 5 ] is having a sale?

Grab Bag Sale

If you’re looking to add a little surprise variety to your style, then check out [ 2 one 5 ]’s Grab Bag sale.

Each bag has an estimated value of $233, and contains two pieces form the Hood Riches collection (a jacket), one Five Panel hat (a dome piece), and one (limited) tee.

The only catch is that they get to pick the gear, and there are absolutely no returns or exchanges, so be ready for a whatever comes out of the bag when you click buy.

…Cars and People is fascinating?

Time-lapse photography can make anything exponentially more exciting, so it should come as no surprise that the seemingly boring subject of a parking lot takes on a life of its own when you can watch 24 hours flash by in just over a minute.

Called Cars and People, it was shot using a Canon Digital Rebel XT SLR camera with 15-second intervals between shots at the parking lot on Bay and Edward in Toronto.

…The subway is not a dangerous place?

New York Subway

Lenore Skenazy of The New York Sun left her 9-year-old son at Bloomingdale’s with “a subway map, a MetroCard, a $20 bill, and several quarters, just in case he had to make a call.”

Several hours later…he turned up at home, safe and sound.

Surprised?

Half the people she told that story to were, but for what reason? Have we come to distrust our fellow man so much that we feel the need to keep children under lock and key so that they have no chance to foster any type of independence? I think we have, and Lenore would agree.

The problem is not that we aren’t aware of the risks, and haven’t heard stories of what can happen, it’s that “we all know that story — and the one about the Mormon girl in Utah and the one about the little girl in Spain — and because we do, we all run those tapes in our heads when we think of leaving our kids on their own.”

Except, instead of making them safer, locking them up just makes them dependent and afraid of the world.

    The statistics show that this is an incredibly rare event, and you can’t protect people from very rare events. It would be like trying to create a shield against being struck by lightning.

So perhaps it’s time for everyone to just relax a little bit, trust a little bit, and give a little bit, because otherwise, what kind of world have we created for ourselves?

…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.
