Recyclebank Get closer to nature by living in an underground home built from sustainable materials I’ve always wanted to live in an underground dwelling because it’s the closest I’ll ever get to living like a Hobbit, and it seems like the perfect place to go in case zombies attack.

Gavin Mackey's Pokemon Redesigns Will Haunt Your Nightmares [Art Somewhere between the original, manga-looking Pokémon that we all know and love and the bigger, shinier fantasy re-imaginings that we’ve also seen, lies Gavin Mackey’s vision for the super-powered critters. In Mackey’s art, they take an insidious turn toward resembling Renée French subjects or that creepy baby in David Lynch’s Eraserhead.Mackey was taking requests. Unfortunately for you late-comers, his commissions, taken through his deviantART account, seem to be closed for the time being. He still has his finished pieces posted in his gallery there, however. He’s made a Gastly, Bulbasaur and Charmander, as well as SpongeBob SquarePants’ pal Patrick Star and Yoda. These paintings may very well change how you use your Poké Balls for the rest of your Poké combat career, but they are rather mesmerizing, so go have a look.

How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes.

Guardian Back Up - Double Edge, Fine Edge Love this knife. I've carried it on boot for years working on the southwest border in Arizona and now on the northern border in Washington. It's a good feeling knowing it's there if I need it, and it comes in handy for a number of different uses. I have owned one of these since 2004 back when I was deployed in Haiti.
