Happy Spumoni Day!

August 22, 2011 by Ming

Today was national Spumoni day. In homage to our new found favorite dessert we paid another visit to Spumoni Gardens. Sadly we weren’t greeted with the red, white and green celebration we had anticipated – they didn’t even know about the holiday – but the Spumoni was as tasty and beautiful as ever in all […]

March 18, 2010 by mimecine

We have had a long-time love affair with Project Number 8 without them even knowing and then we had a long-term love affair with them knowing. How could we not love what they do, beauty! integrity! a bright mind! Rare attributes and even rarer in combination. When they asked us to make a collection of […]

We are proud to show this longtime idol of ours. Ken Brown, the creator of all those postcards that so inspired us to this day.  Seldom did we feel as dumbfounded as when we realized all these pictures we had littered our walls with (oh, and I had a few wicked rubber stamps too) came […]

Mini #9: SRI

January 23, 2009 by mimecine

Just like people on the American frontier would have their portraits taken with their prized music box, images of women today include themselves and their prized bag. Doodles and doddles and bibs and bobs, snazzy. We like to offer […]

They are back, the couple behind the esoteric store that inspired us a lot to do what we do. Some of you remember a store on 13th St between 4th Ave and Ave A that sold an all sorts of pleasant and wonderfully unpleasant things – for example, our ghastly parrot lamp was a find […]

Live and Awry in New York

July 28, 2008 by mimecine

This is a link to a video of a cyclist being assaulted by a cop From BoingBoing: ” Although a judge ruled in 2006 that the monthly Critical Mass bicycle rides could proceed without a permit, the NYPD’s stance remains somewhat adversarial. Though the city has not been enforcing the controversial parade permit law when […]
