Links for 6.28.10: How to get a beer belly

*Environment: This is what The Listenerd looks like, post-oil spill. [A Cleaner Future, via Eyeteeth]

*Crafts: Apparently, the practice you will see if you click through on this link is known as thread painting, and it is amazing. BEEEEEESSS!!!!!

*Architecture: The idea of the hallway. [That one was for you, Murketing.]

*Art: Tomáš Gabzdil’s Libertiny sculpture is finished by adding…BEES!!!!!! (I love exclaiming…BEES!!!) [I’m done.] [(notcot)]

*Retail: A fine, long listicle on why your barista hates you. I long had a barista with whom I had a near-perfect understanding: I wouldn’t talk to him, he wouldn’t talk to me. I would tip him a whole dollar almost every day, he would give me free coffees regularly. Then he went into rehab. Yeah, sad story. [consumerist]

*Music: Camille Paglia on sex, jazz, androgyny and men who wear loose shorts.

*Imagery: “Postcards from Hell” – ForeignPolicy.com puts together a photo essay of images from “the world’s most failed states.” [harper’s]

*Wood: If I were still on Tumblr, I’d tumble this image. Acrylic on dead wood.

*Blogs: I didn’t even know Converse had a blog. Is The Daily Swarm doing it? It looks like a combination of Notcot and TDS. I barely see any shoes.

*Local: There will be a BEER EVENT called SURLYFEST on September 18th. Where? No idea. What? No idea. If you have never had Surly, you should find some and drink it. BEER!!!!

*Today’s links: F.

Links for 4.30.09: White rappers, vinyl portraits, lanyards…

*Art: Check out these portraits of musicians drawn on vinyl Daniel Edlen. Reminds me of the “drawings” done with magnetic cassette tapes. [coudal]

*Hip-hop: Vulture writes up a history of white rappers. Remember Pete Nice? He’s on there. Probably my favorite rap name, due to its pleasantness.

*Blogs: Here’s my Dickens URLhttp://dickensurl.com/834a/Hes_tough_maamtough_is_J_B_tough_and_devilish_sly [presurfer]

*Hang: A Swine Flu poster on your wall? I thought I had SARS for a while. Also, anthrax. Years ago. (I’m not joking.) [eyeteeth]

*Lists: You will notice one blog that is NOT listed in the Hipster Handbook. My beard growing begins NOW. [shorties]

*Crafts: Sublime Stitching has made some of Daniel Johnston’s art into crafty needlepointy things. [pop candy]

*Fashion: Wear a lanyard with a rain hood on it. And thank me when you are complimented on it. Or thank baileygenine.

*Books: Gwyneth Paltrow reads Eric Carle. This is like the Arcade Fire being used for a “Where the Wild Things Are” trailer or something. Oh.Da
