Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

This is the first time I've seen something like this, and I like the concept. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies contains the original text of the Jane Austen masterpiece, "spiced up with new portions featuring viloent, flesh-hungry zombie hordes." I haven't read the original or the updated version, but I can imagine that the injection of zombies will certainly make it a more palatable read for someone with my particular...aesthetic sensibilities.

Seth Grahame-Smith makes the literary zombie additions while the original illustrations by C. E. Brock are also updated by...someone who remains unnamed. Available for preorder here for the perfectly rounded sum of $10.36.

DC Shoes Gatsby LTD

I've been trying to get my grubby mitts on these sexy sneaks for about a year now with no success, and now they have appeared on the interwebs in this fancy new colorway. I'm toying with the idea of offering a bounty to anyone in California or New York who can acquire a pair of these for me, since I apparently live in Gatsby Bumblefuck, so let me know if you have any leads and we can negotiate a suitable reward.

The branding, sexy grey/black/blue colorway, and general unavailableness of the model make me salivate. Or maybe its the Bar Rafaeli pics I have open in this other tab...either way, I'm drooling like...something that drools alot. Witty analogies 1, Ryan 0. You win again, you magnificent bastards.


KAWS: "The Long Way Home" at Honor Fraser in LA

Even if you think you don't know who KAWS is, chances are you have seen at least one or two of his images, collaborations, or sculptures. The Brooklyn-based pop artist has been everywhere of late, and his latest venture is a show titled "The Long Way Home" at LA's Honor Fraser Gallery. If you are in the area, check it out. Opening night is this Saturday, February 20 at 6 pm.

These images are sneak peeks via SuperTouch. Check out the KAWS Flickr group for a (quite obviously) more complete look at his work.

Christ "sneak peek" is right. I see a Smurf, a hand, and a train whistle with teeth. That's like a trailer for Star Wars showing a Jawa, Chewbacca's left foot, and a storm trooper codpiece.

July 18, 1937 – February 20, 2005

"Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of 'the rat race' is not yet final."

—The Great Shark Hunt, 1979
