[GIFTED] Exploding Dog Prints

Exploding Dog is the brainchild of artist Sam Brown, where readers submit titles and he creates drawings based on them.  This is a project that's 10 years in the making, and what continually blows my mind about this site is how titles submitted by strangers connect together so seamlessly.  If you read them in succession, you'd think that they were written by one person. 

They're quirky and odd as they are hopeful and quietly adorable.

And prints are on sale at his shop for under $75.

[ETSY] Bakelite Business Card Holder

When I got my first real job, my father bought me one of those golden businesscard holders that are only used by douchebags.  I can't hold it against him, he thinks I am a powerful lady performing powerful lady business, and his view of what I do all day is probably summed up in this Saturday Night Live sketch

Needless to say, I don't carry that thing around.  This Bakelite Business Card Holder ($20) is a cooler version of that.

My 5 Best Gifts is a recurring feature that asks people to give up the goods on the best gifts they've given or received. 

Raina Cox is a Denver-based interior designer, and the voice behind the hilarious blog, If the Lamp Shade Fits.  Who better to get gift suggestions from than the woman who declares that life is "too short to live ugly?"

[YOU'RE WELCOME] Memorial Day BBQs

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, and, of course, it signifies the official start of the summer.

Forget the fact that if you've been in the Northeast the past few weeks, the rainy, depressing weather has probably got you wanting to slit your wrists just so you can see some goddamned color.

Here comes the sun, everyone.

CORONAS. BOARD SHORTS. CHAMBRAY. BBQS.

What's that, Jessie Spano? You are so excited, so excited, so scared for this gift guide to summer BBQs?

Damn straight.
