sleepin’ bags

Posted in the beautiful, the funny, Uncategorized by huhinteresting on February 20, 2010

i REALLY WANT THIS sleeping bag by Eiko Ishizawa.

i also want the Selk bag pretty hard since it’s multifunctional as pjs, a snow suit, a space walker costume, romantic evening-wear and the ultimate snuggie destroyer.

there are only about 65 of these babies left and the World Conservation Union lists them as one of the most critically endangered species on the planet. they only occur on the island of Cat Ba in notheastern Vietnam where they are heavily poached for use in traditional medicines. they are folivorous frugivores who can consume toxic plansts that are inedible to most other organisms. visit the Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project Site if you want more information on what is being done to save them.

hippie dippie thinking: everything is living

Posted in the beautiful by huhinteresting on May 21, 2009

the panpsychic and a hylozoist argument made by Rudy Rucker fascinates me and makes me feel wonderful in my head. but, it’s waaaaay peace, love, and waterbeds (which can be wonderful things).

panpsychism = the whole universe and everything in it has a mind.

hylozoism = all matter is life. life is conscious. ergo, material objects have consciousness.

Rucker’s arguement uses the following logic:

ruckers argumentit is the term “gnarly computation” that makes the argument. read his paper here

colors to thrill

Posted in pretty things to look at by huhinteresting on February 2, 2009

i have come to my senses and realize the coffee table from CB2 is not a contender. howevs, what’s becoming apparent is that i’m very interested in colors right now. could it possibly be a reaction to the grey, black, and white urban scenescape of late January?

here’s some of the things i’ve been thrilled by in the past few days.

yes please:

this tape is super. i’m all about the thin yellow and thick orange:

this petit pan tiger trophy is like pc taxidermy meets happy chinese new year:

the grand canyon wool pendleton blanket is colorful fun times flanked in cornflower blue:

i think i’m ready for spring. and to think that tomorrow is groundhog day. ugh. that fucker better not see its shadow.

the everlasting search for a tiny coffee table

Posted in pretty things to look at by huhinteresting on January 30, 2009

it’s a little pricier than most of CB2’s products at $199. it’s worth thinking about though.
