Happy Tomatina Day! And, in an odd juxtaposition, RIP to Senator Kennedy.

This weekend continues the wacky summer festival tradition, with art made of hay in Austria and all manner of ducks celebrated in Louisiana.

In the UK, there will allegedly be rhyming slang ATMs for Cockneys, with more variations to come. I'd like to see this tried in the US, although I don't think it would end well.

Happy news -- artist Lisa Snellings is now on Etsy, and she's having a sale on her poppets and other beautifully odd creations! Who doesn't need a Wilbur in their life?

Also, for the even spookier art lover: Pyramid Gallery features the puzzle boxes made famous in Hellraiser. I hope they have really good liability insurance.
