Bicycle Window Box – For the transient gardener

Two great things that (don’t) go great together:

Bicycle Window Box- For the transient gardener.

A window box for the cyclist who is always on the move, or cycle tourist needing nutritious strawberries and beansprouts..

or simply for someone without a garden….or a moron,(like me).

(via Instructables.)

No, seriously – on a purely practical level I don’t think these go together. The window box would be very heavy, and whizzing around would be a bit rough on young seedlings. But I love it visually, conceptually, aesthetically…

The Five Grossest American Fast Food Ideas

“Call it the heart attack heard ’round the world. Yes, today KFC’s already-infamous Double Down–the bacon and cheese “sandwich” where the bun is comprised of two chunks of fried chicken–hits fast food chains and mall food courts across the nation…”

Anyone fancy a burrito?

Spent Bullets Transformed into Jewelry

“Violence is never pretty, but the implements of destruction themselves can possess their own twisted allure. Much like the Gun Reclamation Project rehabilitates firearms into jewelry, Israeli designer Adi Zaffran Weisler refashions spent bullets into one-of-a-kind rings…”

Uh… no thanks.

The 400 Blows

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
