Life After Death: Urban Death Project Kickstarter

Urban Death Project

The Urban Death Project has launched its Kickstarter to crowdfund their brilliant and beautiful method of laying our loved ones to rest. Urban Death Project

The Urban Death Project is a new system that utilizes the natural process of decomposition to safely and gently turn our deceased into soil. The project is creating a meaningful, equitable, and ecological alternative to existing options for the care of the dead.

Current Westernized methods of burial and cremation are damaging to the environment, burning fossil fuels and wasting resources. Embalming is a superficial road to longevity, preserving the deceased only in appearance for a short while and nothing more, and fills our grounds with carcinogenic embalming fluids. The Urban Death Project proposes a new method that puts our physical remains to a great use: creating new life.

Please visit The Urban Death Project’s Kickstarter page for more information, and to back their project!

James Jean Jewelry

bone-necklace-blue-product-610x406

Perfect, delicate porcelain anatomical jewelry from artist James Jean- the vertebra pictured below are stackable rings, the pelvis and skull sets are necklaces. These are from 2012- and no, I didn’t find them available for sale anywhere.

The Haute List: Miz Mooz Obsession

I’m kind of in love with everything about the current lineup from Miz Mooz: the vintage styling on the pumps, the choice from a variety of color that don’t burn my eyes, the preponderance of buttons…

April Fools Winner: Power Wheels Desert Drifters

The best thing to come out of the wash of April Fool’s posts on the Web this year? Think Geek’s Mad Max Fury Road Power Wheels collection.  I wonder how many people it would take clicking ‘BUY’ for these to actually be produced….

I suddenly have Tori Amos’ Blood Roses playing on repeat in my head, and it’s a welcome soundtrack.

Atmosphere

This might quite possibly be the most transcendental thing I have ever seen.

Etsy shop of the Week: Mirimirifashion

Sheer Silk Hooded Dress, $129

Veteran designer Kaye Costello’s Etsy shop, Mirimirifashion, chooses to do only a few things- but to do them well. And the main thing she does is hooded dresses with some shrugs and boleros scattered in, focusing on that fine line where fashion meets cozy. As someone that lives in the perpetually chilly SF Bay Area and spends a great deal of time bitching about the lack of cute long-sleeved dresses, I pretty much want everything.
