2009 Phases of the Moon Calendar

There are so many days when I’m wondering what the countdown is to the coming of the werewolves. I’m sure you can relate. In 2009 I’ll be prepared with this great Phases of the Moon calendar sold at the MoMA Store. And if you need a refresher on how to kill them, here you go.


Faces by Ferran Adria

Ferran Adria, the molecular gastronomist and chef of elBulli (voted the best restaurant on planet Earth) has created Faces, a gorgeous line of flatware. I am in love with this Baroque design. At $138 a setting, you can’t really set each place with these but they’d be a great “just for me” set–the kind of silverware you’d use for each and every thing you eat and no one else could use them. Meatloaf? Of course. French fries? Sure, class it up and use the fork. Olives? Pass the spoon and back off sister.
