Literally and Figuratively | Brown Paper Bag Jes­sica Dance is an art direc­tor, model maker, and prop styl­ist who spe­cial­izes in hand­crafted mod­els. I’ll say! Check out this series of knit­ted com­fort foods that totally gives new mean­ing to the phrase. As some­one who knows how to knit (poorly), I am super impressed with the forms them­selves and detail­ing on items like sausage and bacon. All pho­tog­ra­phy is by David Sykes. This piece isn’t apart of her com­fort foods series… but goes with the theme of what she’s doing. 37 Signs You're Owning This Whole Being Broke Thing 365 Gallery — LUCKY JACKSON Game of Thrones A Colouring Book 5 x 7 in by TeamArt on Etsy

home : JUAN FONTANIVE The dude map: How Americans refer to their bros “It seems safe to report that dude has supplanted totally as the word most often uttered by American youth,” claimed Richard Hill in his 1994 paper on the history of the word “dude.” That might be true, but as it turns out, “dude” is more popular in some parts of the United States than others. In other areas of the country, people say “pal,” “buddy,” and other colloquial vocatives—nouns that usually refer to a person. The map above shows the geographical concentration of a few such words. When Hill wrote his history of “dude,” understanding such trends in slang was close to impossible. Forensic linguist Jack Grieve has been working with several billion tweets, collected by Diansheng Guo of the University of South Carolina, to analyze the geography of language using location data attached to the tweets. To generate the maps, Grieve first searched for occurrences of these words in the dataset. Tweets are first adjusted by the population of the counties from which they were sent.

Starving Artist Recipes I used to live in Seattle and one of the big things I miss about that city is Tom Douglas’s Serious Pie restaurant. It is seriously intense, with their stone-encased applewood burning ovens, exclusive charcuterie, and artisan cheeses. But my fav is their Yukon Gold Potato with Rosemary and Pecorino Romano Pizza. While flights from LA to Seattle aren’t super expensive, making this pizza (or as close to it as possible) is a better alternative. You need to be a bit organized to get the timing right, but it’s very worth the time so stick with it. Makes: 2 pizzasTime: 30 minutesPizza Dough Ingredients: 3 3/4 cup bread flour, 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast, 3/4 tsp salt, 3/4 tsp sugar, 1 1/3 cup lukewarm water, a few drops of olive oilPizza Topping Ingredients: 3-4 large yukon potatoes, 3 tsp salt, 1/2 yellow onion, 2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary, pepper, a few drops of olive oil, 2-3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese 5:00pm: In a large bowl combine the flour, yeast, salt and sugar.

Coloring Book For Grown-Ups That Mocks Adult Life (II) POYKPAC's Coloring for Grown-Ups is back in the headlines after new images were leaked online. These images from the darkly-humorous coloring book poke fun at issues like contraception, sex, and depression. We previously covered the book here. Adult coloring books are enjoying a boom, and can be found among the top five best-selling books on Amazon. Artists like Kerby Rosanes and Johanna Basford have also created successful coloring books for grownups. As to why they're popular, Basford has a theory.
