I just made a gif edit of this amazing Rekindle Candle by Benjamin Shine and thought I’d share the non-animated version as well. 

"The Rekindle Candle is a candlestick holder which collects the melting wax to form a new candle.  As the candle burns, melting wax drips from the candle and accumulates inside the transparent stem where a length of wick is centrally located.  Once full, the new molded candle can be removed from the central section to start the process again."

On standing out in the white male-dominated comedy world.“There are little Indian girls out there who look up to me, and I never want to belittle the honor of being an inspiration to them.  But while I’m talking about why I’m so different, white male show runners get to talk about their art.”
On the attention paid to her appearance.“I always get asked, ‘Where do you get your confidence?’ I think people are well meaning, but it’s pretty insulting.  Because what it means to me is, ‘You, Mindy Kaling, have all the trappings of a very marginalized person.  You’re not skinny, you’re not white, you’re a woman.  Why on earth would you feel like you’re worth anything?’”
– Examples of why I love Mindy Kaling, from her interview in Parade Magazine.

"Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’"

Red Circle Letterpress   |   Shop

"RCLP in collaboration with some great designers, bring you these Christmas card designs that you can purchase to send out to friends and family. Thanks to Jeff Rogers, John Passafiume, Dan Cassaro, Ryan Feerer (coming soon) and Chris Rushing."

We love putting ink on paper. We use a historic method of printing known as letterpress. Before the use of computers and digital printing, type was printed using metal or wooden typefaces that would be arranged by hand and printed using a letterpress style printing press. We started our shop by resurrecting one of these old letterpresses. A 1947 Kluge to be exact. After weeks of cleaning and replacing worn out parts, we were able to get our Kluge up and printing again. Its a marvel to see in action.

Joshua Harker

"Quixotic Divinity Headdress"

"Exploring the limits of the medium, Joshua Harker brings together art, technology & fashion to create the 3d printed “Quixotic Divinity”  headdress.  Inspired by traditional Native American, Latin, African, & Asian headdresses & masks, this piece celebrates the symbolism & ceremony of human adornment.  Revealing the wearer’s identity, the face mask hangs in position as a floating bodice symbolizing the freedom of the spirit from the body. The piece has nearly 200 hours of design time & was built by EOS on their largest format SLS printer in polyamide, filling its build envelope to full dimensional capacity. Catwalk premier was in London then to Paris at the Louvre.  Debuting in the United States at 3D Printshow New York City at the Metropolitan Pavilion, February 13-15 2014.”

I am blown away, a amazing piece of 3d printing! and wow headdress. The detail, and having it in white..

the speech impediment of the 21st century (by Marc Johns)

I’ll fuck you up buddy this is not a speech impediment it’s linguistic evolution!! the existence of the phrase “Aisha was like” allows the speaker to convey whatever Aisha said without making the listener assume they’re quoting Aisha directly while still maintaining the FEELING of what Aisha said.
ie, Aisha said she didn’t want to go out with me VERSUS Aisha was like, “I’d rather kiss a Wookie”.
the addition of “XYZ was like” lets the speaker be more expressive and efficient and it is a totally valid method of communicating information!!

With the way language has evolved, this is one of the few ways I can even think of to express in casual conversation what someone said. 
"So I said to Aisha," is certainly used, but if you remove the "so," which implies casual tone ("and" can be used in the same way), you get
"I said to Aisha," which is really formal in most English dialects/variations. I don’t know about all, but in New England dialects, you sound like you’re reading aloud from a novel.
"I told Aisha," is really only used when you continue to describe, not tell, what you told her. Ex: "I told Aisha that James was too punk for her" works while, "I told Aisha, ‘James is too punk for you’" crosses the line back into formalness of the "I said."
Things like “I asked” or “I answered [with]” are similar levels of casual and efficient to the “So, I said [or say, as many conversations about the past take place in present tense anyway, as if the speaker is giving a play-by-play in the moment]” but are specific to only certain situations. 
"I was like, 'Marc Johns, what is your obsession with restoring archaic speech patterns and interfering with the natural progression of English from complex to efficient?'" envelopes all of these easily and is accessible and crisp, and allows for more variations on inflection than the others.
Of course, James is probably like, “I already fucking said that.” But eh, I tried adding on.
