So far…. best month this year.
Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

Yes, you’re seeing correctly: these really are peaches in sexy panties
There’s a new craze sweeping China’s Yangshan, an area known as much for its fruit as it is for its lingerie: panty-wearing peaches. That’s right, it’s rows and rows of peaches in panties, designed to make the lucious peaches look that much more appealing to prospective buyers. And it seems to be working. As for us, well, we may never be able to look at that sweet, juicy fruit the same way again. It’s all cheeky, innit?!
2014’s average sucks…..on a bad month…0…..on a good month…..5….
Here is to the next 4 months being better…. because an average of 3 is unacceptable!
2013’s average was 10! That is a significant drop! I don’t think my wife understands how important numbers are in a month.
A bed with large fries for a headboard will make you never want to get up again
This is the stuff dreams are made of. ‘Supersize Bed’ is a fully-functional bed with a headboard that looks like a large order of fries. Created by designer Cecilia Carey with Bompas and Parr, the giant fries can be removed to serve as huggable pillows. Yes, we can now show our unconditional love to fast food by holding it tightly as we sleep, while whispering: ‘I’ll never let you go, fry, I’ll never let you go’.
Supersize Bed is available for purchase here.
My wife likes to match our son….. you think I would have that problem….. no, my wife does :) It is cute.
Street art that makes more sense as you come closer
Street artist Pejac’s latest works in Paris involve you having to give them a detailed examination, because if you don’t come closer, you might not even notice they’re artworks at all! One of his street art involves a seemingly ordinary door on a wall, but upon inspection, it’s actually just a clever painting on a thick wall crack.
Another work might trick you into thinking a little girl is using a magnifying glass to torture ants – but they’re really torturing tiny people! His last work involves a silhouette throwing a water balloon, but the splat contains a Manet painting, ‘The Luncheon on the Grass’.
You can find out more about Pejac and his street art here.
