I was just looking for a good laugh this manic Monday afternoon and remembered this little gem by Peter Smith-Buchanan that pokes good fun at the urban artisanal movement. As a public request to all you hip furniture designers and urban craftsmen out there; I am still just waiting for someone to re-design the shit out of a toilet. A hand-crafted, designer crapper would be hilarious and also amazing. Put me on the mailing list and let me know when it’s ready for pre-order.www.remadeco.org

Meet Anna Ehrgott, the quintessential California surfer girl. In fact, I’m pretty sure there are a few Beach Boys songs about her. Anna spends her days outdoors, hiking, sewing board bags, picture taking, but mostly surfing Southern California’s many point breaks. Most people would recognize her in the lineups at First Point and Topanga. We recently took a little trip up the canyon to pay miss Anna a visit and have her show us the beautiful place where she calls home.FULL STORY
