Portland General Store

Posted in design by arcanedufresne on March 31, 2010

I wish I could remember what blog I found this on, but I unfortunately cannot. Portland General Store is an Etsy shop that specializes in old-fashioned, handmade, small batch all natural goods like cologne, shaving cream and jelly, shampoo and other various personal care products. An added bonus is the sampler box that they offer that comes in a vintage cigar box with a constantly changing rotation of toiletries.

OHHHH, WHAT A WOOKIE!

Posted in movies by arcanedufresne on March 31, 2010

Whilst typing an e-mail and wanting to make sure I spelled the word “padawan” correctly, I googled it and stumbled upon the fact that there is a Wikipedia dedicated to Star Wars called Wookieepedia. Amazing.

Keys Open Doors Pt. 2

Posted in clothing/fashion, home by arcanedufresne on March 30, 2010

As opposed to the Hellboy Vol. 1 trade that I ordered almost one month ago and still have not received, these Mishka key toppers were ordered yesterday and delivered to me this morning already. They are really awesome, albeit a bit bulky, but I now know that the eyeball is to get into the outside door and the Death Adder bear is for the inside door of my new place. Thanks Mishka!

It’s official, I have worn a hole through the heels of not one but both of the socks I am wearing today, which happen to be my favorite wool pair.

French Bully

Posted in animals by arcanedufresne on March 29, 2010

I spent the last 72 hours moving and internet-less, so in the interim I will leave you with this brief post. If I ever get a dog, I want a French bulldog (striped sweater optional) and his name will be Duke or Charles or Pierre or Kraken.

Printed Liberty

Posted in art, philly by arcanedufresne on March 26, 2010
Heads of State have done a set of limited edition, screen-printed travel posters and they are pretty striking. They are a simple representation of the major cities they portray and I am thinking about showing some Philly pride and making a purchase.

Lt. John McClane Approved

Posted in musings/writings/creations by arcanedufresne on March 25, 2010

I don’t know how I haven’t noticed something this awesome sooner, but New Hampshire’s state motto (which is sported on their license plates) makes me want to live there. I’m sure Bruce Willis must have a vacation cabin somewhere in the woods. On the way to work Monday morning, I saw a car with NH plates and it lead me to this post…

Other than it’s obvious aesthetic value, is there any real value advantage of a gold-plated AK-47 versus a standard issue AK-47?

Let me know if I am missing something.
