Tammy’s Misorder at Caputo’s

Tammy AKA DA BOSS AKA DJ REGGAEBABYTOONZ was really nice and went to buy me a sandwich from our favorite sandwich shop, Caputo’s. She and I really like this one sandwich that has bruschetta, mozzarella, asparagas and balsamic vinegar on the amazing bread. Mmmmmmm. Tammy came back and mentioned that she accidentally ordered the “large” instead of medium sized ciabatta. I didn’t know they had large ciabattas…

Well, they don’t. I mean they do but this “large” sandwich was 22 dollars and the size of a baby. It’s impossible to express just how big it was, how big it felt. Here is a full sized bag of chips to compare it to.

HUGE! That’s not your 50 cent bag of bodega chips here, we’re talking big mama 3+ dollar size chips. This was a sandwich to feed an army. This was a sandwich to feed the your tired, your poor, your hungry masses yearning to eat. It’s a sandwich full of hope and wonder.

This was a sandwich that was actually the size of three full sandwiches. 22 bucks split three ways isn’t actually that bad! We saved some money!

Understand though that these thoughts of savings all came later. In that moment of unveiling, we were in complete shock!

We could not and probably can not still to some degree, handle this sandwich.

Look! It even had these things that I have never seen before!

Italian Sweety Drop Peppers. Whaaaat? Did you know these things are real?

After the shock dissipated and the calm came but was quickly smothered by raging hunger, we dove into the sandwich, mouth first.

DIY Infinity Room

Yoyoi Kusama’s Infinity Rooms are currently on display at the David Zwirner gallery in New York City. Last weekend I waited 4 hours in line to experience I Who Have Arrived In Heaven, which was totally worth it.

But, if you don’t have a lot of time for lines, you might consider making your own Infinity Room at home.

What You’ll Need

1. 2+ mirrors

2. Small lights (string lights, candles, or a Hypnocube will work)

Steps

1. Arrange mirrors facing toward each other.

2. Assemble lights in the middle of your mirror setup.

3. Blammo! Infinity room achieved.

4. Take close-up pictures to make it look like it’s bigger than it actually is.

And of the setup:

OrangeYouGlad spotted in New Balance video

A few weeks ago some friendly fellows from New Balance used our colorful gate to shoot their new Brooklyn sneakers against. Here is the video they made! And here is the fragment of a second that shows our gates that I so effortlessly managed to capture, thanks to my expert pausing technique.

MAD ninja video pausing skills.

They also sent us some sneakers, which was super nice. Thanks guys!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

OMG, OYG IS OFF THE HOOK! Celebrate good times come on. (click the image to see it BIG)

We loved working on this year’s halloween promo so much that we plan on expanding the world of Yuck City. Expect to see some more stupid cute monsters and maybe their adventures!

 

01 Stoppafriska

The party must be going great, because there is a cop out front! Wait, that’s no cop! It’s Stoppafriska! But he’s cool because he’s just here to dance.

Tomorrow is Halloween!!!

02 Small But Cozy

You arrive at the party– Small But Cozy! What a find! 1500 sq feet, 3 BR (if you count the living room), close to the train, 5 min to Manhattan, no grocery store, no laundry, no pets, no chance you can afford it.

03 Chupacrapra

On the way to the party, you almost fall victim to the ever-dangerous Chupacrapra. Goblint pushes you at the last second and saves you from the nearly ill-fated step.

04 Goblint

You duck into a laundromat, and immediately are chatted up by Goblint– a friendly local character made up of old dryer lint. He whispers, “Hey, you want to go to a party?” You don’t usually talk to lint from unknown sources, but you could use a party.

05 MegaTourist 5000

You come to a screeching halt when MegaTourist 5000 stops in the middle of the bustling sidewalk to capture the moment. Camera raised, eyes on the skyline, he obliviously causes a sidewalk traffic jam.

You continue your stroll, foot sticking to the ground, when you notice the silhouette of a Pizza Kaiju emerging from the skyline.
