At Home | TV-land apartment floor plans

TV shows are not only about the story arcs – the drama, the comedy, the tragedy, the hyper-life – but also inspiration and voyeurism – as in ‘how the others can live’.

Spanish artist Iñaki Aliste Lizarralde has put together a gallery of floor plans from some of those TV shows and a movie too boot. Find yours here.

Art | VISUALEYES Photographers Special Request: Helena Christensen & Marino Parisotto

VISUALEYES is an artist agency founded in 2007 that represents more than just photographers. To stick with snap happy, Helena and Marino have a star next to their names (“Special Request”), so let’s see.

Helena Christensen is well known from her hugely successful modeling days in the 1990s; in 1997 she co-founded NYLON magazine and in 1999 went on to freelance photography; in 2003, she had her first exhibition in London.

Marino Parisotto studied economics, but fashion photography pulled at him and within ten years he seduced also other photographers and photo critics who praise him highly.

Cartoon & Food | Shichimi and Motsu

How has your week been?
How about some irreverent nutty weirdness to get the weekend on the way? 
And how about some nourishment ideas, too?
Shichimi Togarashi "Seven Spice" – This traditional seasoning from Japan means “seven flavor chili” and varies by the region. We handcraft our version by mixing together toasted and black sesame seeds, orange peel, white poppy seeds, Hungarian paprika, Chinese chiles, Szechwan peppercorns, ginger and toasted seaweed. The flavor is intense and does a fast paced dance on the tongue filling your mouth with a new sensation. 
Motsu-nabe is a type of (hot) pot dish, which is made from beef or pork offal. A hot pot (nabe) is filled with soup, prepared beef or pork offal and boiled for a while; cabbage and garlic chives are added. The base soup is usually soy sauce with garlic and chili pepper, or miso. After eating offal and vegetables, champon noodles are often put into the pot and boiled to complete the dish.
