This really did make me laugh! Via Art Threat.
Do Royal weddings and indeed all the incessant chatter about the upcoming April 29 Royal wedding make you sick to the stomach? Feel the need to expel the grossness that has entered your being by way of absurd attention paid to an absurd group of elites whose only claim to fame and fortune is hereditary theft and bad haircuts? Then look no further! UK artist Lydia Leith has created the “Royal Wedding Sick Bag” for the occasion. “Throne up” into yours today!

The series of mirrors are designed to lean against a wall, supported on long steel tubular legs with cork feet. They are available in primary colors as well as black, white and gray and three different styles.
This is the perfect add as you go along chandelier, where anyone can start with just a single crystal and work their way up the chandelier ladder. By Thomas Feichtner.
One Crystal Chandelier is a hanging light fixture reduced to its essence by Viennese designer Thomas Feichtner. A cable runs through a curved tube which is fitted with an LED at the end to provide light. This tube’s curvature is such that one can hang a crystal from it—and this crystal is then lit from below. The design is a greatly simplified one which consciously breaks with the historically more formal and representative role that crystal chandeliers have played. It is not powerful opulence, but rather a fascinating simplicity that dominates this work. And it is the use of LED technology that makes it possible to take this approach to its logical conclusion. The concept becomes particularly clear within the context of the producer’s history and in light of the way it contrasts with traditional chandelier designs. One Crystal Chandelier is an affordable lighting element for a design-loving but no less traditional public—an “entry-level” chandelier which can be expanded by adding further crystals as one sees fit.
A most marvelous collection of vintage ads, some of which really tickle my pants!
In America, the chasm between rich and poor is growing, the clash between conservatives and liberals is strengthening, and even good and evil seem more polarized than ever before. At the heart of this collection of portraits is my desire to remind us that we were all equal, until our environment, circumstances or fate molded and weathered us into whom we have become. Los Angeles– and New York-based photographer Mark Laita completed Created Equal over the course of eight years; his poignant words reflect the striking polarizations found in his photographs. Presented as diptychs, the images explore social, economic and gender difference and similarity within the United States, emulating and updating the portraiture of Edward Curtis, August Sander and Richard Avedon. This volume includes an introduction by noted culture writer and editorial cult figure Ingrid Sischy.

The party is over and a party tent, with partially tilted legs, has been left behind. This exact image is captured and stylized in PARTY, a series of objects made out of steel. Something that was once fragile has now become solid. By stylizing and adding bright colours a new form is created, while the origins remain visible. PARTY is a personal translation by ROTGANZEN, it represents the ambivalence that appears at typically Dutch backyard parties. On the one hand there is joy and festivity, on the other superficiality and emptiness.
