Just when I thought the Quirk books couldn’t get anymore entertaining, they make The Meowmorphosis: Franz Kafka’s classic tale The Metamorphosis and adorable kittens combined. I’ll finally get to know the answer to that age old question; what is a full grown man supposed to do when he’s becomes OMG super cute?
Laurina Paperina loves contemporary art, especially contemporary artists. She loves them so much that she has several videos depicting ways in which she would kill them. Like Marina Abramovic dying from running into her lover several times naked, or Takashi Murakami being eaten by one of his flowers, or Damien Hirst being attacked by butterflies! Apparently you can love anybody to death.
March is Women’s History Month, and to celebrate, the Smithsonian Channel has a new series called Women in Science: Working Wonders, which follows several different women around as they explain their role in helping the world through science. The best part of this, though, is on their website which features comic-book like versions of the different episodes. Merging science, feminism, and comics together is something that I think should last longer than a month.
I’ve been a fan of NohJColey’s street art for sometime now, but his latest series in north Brooklyn has me so excited.

Neozoon is the female art duo that takes old fur coats and turns them into street art. They start with old vintage fur coats, then proceed to cut out the shapes of different animals, which they then stick around different cities.

Travel lovers and typography obsessors, these videos created by the international language teaching company, EF, are for you. The amazing thing about these language videos are that no words are spoken, but through the wonderful typography created by Albin Holmqvist, verbal speech isn’t needed. Each type design fits perfectly with the culture it’s representing, creating a beautiful visual story that I can’t help but want to be a part of.
In case you haven’t heard, Beth Ditto (the lead singer of the band Gossip) has a solo EP coming out next month. And the soulful singer does not disappoint with her Madonna-esque video for I Wrote The Book. This black and white video makes me want to have a diva-fest.
