Excuse me? finally neiman marcus gets classy. Are you just starting up on the fascinating world of falconry? no? you should! Now with this beginning falconry kit, you can! includes: Gold perch. 20-karat gold plated with hand cut rings of lapis lazuli. The perch comes with a 304 stainless steel spike to put into the ground or a “Kashmir Gold” granite base for indoor use.

maybe the bags you put on the falcons heads are the coolest thing though? Hoods. calf and blue ostrich with a black ostrich inlay and a blue sapphire bead AND rattlesnake with designer ostrich eye panels and a blue sapphire bead. and more!

There,s also a backgammon set that is pretty fancy but doesn’t make too much sense other than justifying an up-sell on the whole kit.

the rest of the catalog is ok, i guess.

oh you want to watch a video? ok

musings on fine art

Y’all i have like, no interest in Richard Serra.

anyways- Halloween is coming up.  there is this etsy purveyor who makes really cute family costumes

Image

which made mego i wonder what the most expensive hat on etsy looks like?

Well here it is. It costs 10 k.

description: Crown of Peace hat is a original design, hand made by myself. Inspired by a white dove that I rescued. It’s a real white dove in the hat named Dolly.
This hat is great for taking your bird for a walk. The roof can be adjusted by the cords at the corners of the roof. This hat is lots of fun for you and your bird. I need your head size by taking a tape measure and measuring 1/2″ above your eyebrows around your head. Don’t pull to tight or to loose.Record the magic measurment.

That unicorn is full of rainbow cake.

Some English people went completely mental and made a life-sized unicorn out of rainbow cake.

Great, Diary. Now I have to have a rainbow unicorn themed wedding.

October’s Private Islands Newsletter: 3 Stars

Dear Diary-

I finally got a chance to sit down with the October 2013 Private Islands newsletter and it was only a 3 star showing. Let’s talk about why, and let me show you my favorite featured island which is super cute. Yes cute.

First Off…

From Left: Casco Bay, Harlock, Etta's, and Sheep Island. Not  even appealing names!

From Left: Casco Bay, Harlock, Etta’s, and Sheep Island. Not even appealing names!

 Let’s just admit I’m always going to ignore islands in Canada and Maine and the like, because A) they’re a dime a dozen up there, and B) who wants an island where it snows? The only possible redeeming quality is lobsters, but they have those in warm places too, Diary. I can’t even be bothered to make the pictures legible.

Behold the Featured Island: Meh-lody Key

Looks OK, right?

Looks OK, right?

This month’s featured island is Melody Key in the actual keys of Florida, and it’s being auctioned off online Nov. 11-14. Get your $350,000 escrow deposit in by Nov. 13th, Diary! You have to bid over $3.5 million, which is a “steal” because it was previously offered at $6 million.

This is because… Continue reading

Prada-Oasis-and-Damien-Hirst-Pharmacy-Juice-bar_1

Bedouin? BedoOUT!

Prada Marfa is one thing. It’s an art. Prada tent things in Qatar w Damien Hirst is another thing.it’s like a post, post anti modernism warholian abortion with like juice cleansing and impractical shoes.

The charm of a pop up actually being a tent is quaint, I guess, if you’re still into pop ups. The thing is, I dislike Damien Hirst lots but I sort of love Prada.

However as far as purses go, these purses went. they are not half bad. I’m into carrying these arizona truck store stop larvae in a lollipop purses. However, this continues the disturbing fashion trend of making a wacky limited edition object and shielding behind giving all the proceeds to charity so people can’t roll their eyes at your stuff. uncool guys. It’s important to take accountability for your purse.

After the Jump,  ten artist we would rather see collaborate with Prada!

juice-bar-4

Just kidding. I can think of no greater horror than like a jeff koons balloon animal hobo bag. Nevermind ,I kind of want that right now.  Look, I’m making a point here. Remember those depressing Murakami Louis Vuitton atrocities that maybe I also wanted but it was still sort of lame? I think I’m against high art high fashion combos in general.  I mean, if your’e gonna poop out a purse collab why not delight in the wacky?

It’s like a lesson you learn from you tube videos.  Human playing with cat is lame. Cat playing with bird is cool? elephant playing with dog is awesome. Lion reuniting with human caretakers and hugging them is superb. unlikely friends is what makes for sympatico combos. What we need here is a taco bell prada purse.

stuff still happens in williamsburg three years ago

you guys. when did this pool happen?

king-and-grove-hotel-williamsburg-brooklyn-07

there’s a fricken salt water pool in Williamsburg  in a hotel next to mccarren park. also they are getting a michelin star chef. Also that real pool in the park is now a pool again and it used to be just a loitering concert hole for people too lazy to go to PS1.

All I want is a salt water urban oasis for myself. And none of that sex in the city sneaking in shit. This pool is open to the public for $45. there are very few pools in NY in private residences btw. One of the great tragedies of the city. not as tragic as getting weirded out by a pool in williamsburg three years after that shit opened. This is how over it that whole area is people.
