The amazing artist Elizabeth McGrath, best known for her creepy-cute faux taxidermy mutants, has a show of watercolor paintings opening tomorrow night, May 10, in Los Angeles. Liz has created more than 50 paintings for this exhibition, titled The Secret Party. It runs until June 4 at the Bill Shire Fine Arts gallery, and all of the work is also viewable online. I'd imagine that this is Liz's last show for a little while as her awesome goth-country band, Miss Derringer, is about to go on tour with Blondie! Above left, "Sailor's Delight" (watercolor on paper, 3" x 2 1/2"). Above right, "Blue Star" (watercolor on paper, 3" x 2 1/2").

Thread count isn’t like one of those deceiving metrics like camera megapixels or Facebook friends—more threads are always better if you can afford them. If price was no object, we would all be snoozing soundly bundled up in 1.8 kilo-thread sheets every single night. Guess what? Price doesn’t have to be an object with this […]
Maybe it’s entirely because of podcast ads, but drag-and-drop tools like Squarespace have gotten immensely popular in recent years. While it’s definitely a great tool for any non-coders who want to get a small website up and running quickly, managing content with a primarily visual interface can become a pain once you have more than […]
When you can’t wait for the world’s longest meeting to end, the mindless leg bouncing makes your boredom obvious and just annoys everybody else. Everyone knows the TPS reports need the damn cover sheet, but some sadistic colleague keeps forgetting, probably on purpose just to eat into your lunch hour. Enough is enough!While serving a […]
