    these remind me of little figures Alex Ross (world famous comic artist/illustrator) made out of construction paper when he was a kid. there’s photos of them in his Mythology book i think, i should try to dig ’em up

    Please be kind to me. I was once proud owner of the entire collection (I repeat: the entire collection) of G.I. Joe figurines, as well as a substantial amount of vehicles and other stuff.
    Coming back from college, I found out my mum threw them all away, since I am TOO OLD FOR TOYS.

    Thanks mum.

    Oh these likenesses were my best friends about 20 years ago. Still the most versatile toys around, thanks Caleb for celebrating this love affair.

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
