Design History

The Mountain Men Action Figure Set: Marx, Mao, Lenin and Thoreau.

May 22, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Toss the G.I. Joes and the Transformers in the trash. Japanese company General Research has created this limited edition set of polyurethane Mountain Men as part of their February Mountain Research series. And by mountain men they’re of course referring to German philosopher Karl Marx, Chairman Mao “a Chinese revolutionary and Guerrilla warfare strategist,” Vladimir Lenin a “Russian revolutionary and political philosopher,” and Henry David Thoreau the American writer and poet. So what do two communists, a German philosopher, and an American poet have in common? I have no idea whatsoever. And other than Thoreau I think it’s questionable whether any of these men had ever climbed a mountain. But these toys are totally geek-tastic, well designed, and are still in stock here.

Update: Spoon and Tamago was able to dig up some additional details about the set.

My Drunk Kitchen: Brunch

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)

This is why you never, ever give tanks to cats. This will probably become required internet viewing over the next couple days or probably hours. A project by The Whitehouse Post.

A few shots from a great project by photographer Christian Gideon who asked the question, what if you lived at IKEA? … and answered it by taking some hilarious photos of he and his friends living it up in IKEA mock rooms furnished with all matter of low-cost Swedish design.
