This is an interesting concept. Artist Justin Gignac seals up NYC garbage in a solid, sealed, leakproof, see-through container. Read more about it here. You can buy one of his works for $50.

A new song about bed bugs

August 12, 2007

This little song, courtesy of Jon Rolston’s blog My Robot Is Pregnant, and entitled “Bedbug Song,” reminds me of a bit of the Violent Femmes. I like it. And as a bonus, it’s surprisingly informative.
