Fresh Guacamole: A New Stop Motion Short from PES

March 8, 2012

Christopher Jobson

In his first stop motion short in over a year, animator PES (previously) has just released this brilliant companion piece to his groundbreaking 2008 cooking video Western Spaghetti. I’m happy to report this new clip is every bit as wonderful as his earlier works. PES has an uncanny ability to utilize the most unexpected common objects to represent foods, animals and other things—those dice!! (via junk culture)

Cooking up a Rainbow

In case you want to know what I’ve been up to this morning, it’s been watching this brilliant new ad for Lurpak with my son, on repeat, while he runs around the house screaming “MASH MASH MASH”—and I think I’m about to join him. When advertising works, it really works. The spot was produced by Wieden+Kennedy, directed by Dougal Wilson.

My Drunk Kitchen: Brunch

May 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Today you’re definitely getting a mix of high-brow and low-brow art, so bear with me. I’m sorry but this is the most brilliant cooking video I’ve ever seen. The sixth in a series by Hanna Hart, who gets drunk and teaches you how to cook. Sort of. Beware language. (thnx, byron)

Street Map Cutting Board is Both Functional and Gruesome

March 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Just saw this new item pop up at my favorite Icelandic design shop, Birkiland. The Nordurmyrin by 7-9-13 Design Group is a meat cutting board designed to mimic the streets of an actual neighborhood in east Reykjavik.

Nordurmyrin is a meat cutting- and serving board. It draws its name from a neighbourhood in the old east of Reykjavik. Its street names are named after renowned characters in the old icelandic sagas: Landnama, Laxdaela and Njala. These are examples of the street names: Audargata, Gudrunargata, Gunnarsbraut and Skarphedinsgata. When meat is cut on the board the blood juices rush down the streets. It refers to the conflicts that arose in the societies of the second and third generations of Icelandic settlers.

The blood juices run down the streets?! Excuse me while I put on my Bill the Butcher costume and whip out the credit card, this cutting board is the most gruesomely awesome kitchen implement of 2011.
