Children's book of the day: "You Have to F*****g Eat"

Friday, October 31, 2014

After teaching kids to go to sleep on time in his previous best-seller Go the F**k to Sleep, author Adam Mansbach returns with one more "educational" book that tackles another age-old battle between parent and child: You Have to F*****g Eat.
From the author of the international best seller Go the F*** to Sleep comes a long-awaited sequel about the other great parental frustration: getting your little angel to eat something that even vaguely resembles a normal meal. Profane, loving, and deeply cathartic, You Have to F***ing Eat breaks the code of child-rearing silence, giving moms and dads new, old, grand- and expectant, a much-needed chance to laugh about a universal problem.

A perfect gift book like the smash hit Go the F*** to Sleep (over 1.5 million copies sold worldwide!), You Have to F***ing Eat perfectly captures Mansbach's trademark humor, which is simultaneously affectionate and radically honest. You probably shouldn't read it to your kids.

The charted collection of cameras

Thursday, October 30, 2014


The Charted Collection of Cameras is an illustration made available by Pop Chart Lab that takes us through the history of photo cameras.
Pro and amateur photographers alike will love poring over every inch of this RAW and uncropped collection of 200+ cameras from 1839-2014, ranging from the first daguerreotypes to the latest digital delights. Entire lineages of Kodaks, Nikons, Canons and more are captured here, as well as the new guard of in-pocket devices like the Lytro and (gasp!) iPhone—and for further detail, each apparatus is affixed with icons indicating camera type, from 35mm to SLR to newer "integrated" models.
