a freelance procrastinator and occasional dilettante named Helen. Don't ever say "take your time" to a procrastinator. I really dig Rammstein, Ween, Clutch, Swans, The Big Lebowski, Bob's Burgers, Gogol Bordello, animals, nature, the beach, funny stuff, Doug Benson, The Black Keys, Type O Negative, Firewater, Metalocalypse, The Walking Dead, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Arrested Development, True Detective, True Blood, Shameless, breathing, Coen Brothers, John Waters, MST3K, LOTR, BSG, COD, LBP, old arcade games, ps3, Firefly, Medeski Martin Wood, and many more. SO MANY MORE!! Pizza and air conditioning rule my world. I like dark humor and try to laugh daily to fight the sadness. Don't be so serious, because one day we'll all be diagnosed with something bad or else get into a car wreck and die (sorry, it's true. We will all die eventually of something). I daydream a lot & possess a vivid imagination.
Archie McPhee has a long, colourful history of celebrating the humble and almost universally despised cockroach. So we were delighted when we stumbled across the top photo of a tiny shrine created beside the body of a departed roach.
It is just one of the Carmichael Collective’s awesome series of Bug Memorials, set up on the streets of Minneapolis to mark the passing of various insects where their tiny bodies were found, on the city’s sidewalks and windowsills.
One of the things we love most about street art is how it urges the viewer to stop and pay closer attention to one’s surroundings. These little memorials do just that while adding a cute and bittersweet significance to sights so common and unremarkable that they would mostly likely go completely unnoticed otherwise.
