Brilliant Idea of the Day: Grilled Cheese Croutons for Tomato Soup!

As a child, my favorite kid-friendly food was grilled cheese and tomato soup. It was one of the few days I bought lunch at school, and it always hit the spot after a snowball fight, or when at home on a sick day. It was even the first meal I learned to cook, around age nine.

As an adult? My favorite kid-friendly food is grilled cheese and tomato soup. Kids today can keep their chicken fingers and mac and cheese triangles, I'll stick with this combo of classic flavors.… read more

Moustair - Where Men Meets Mustaches Meets Hair Meets Mustaches...

I stumbled across Mustair early last week, and thought, "Yep, I love it when people come up with things that you think should already exist, but don't" and though I subscribed, imagined I wouldn't keep up with it frequently. But, I have... cause it's really, really funny, and keeps getting better.

Stunning Star Trail Photography from the Australian Outback

Photographer Lincoln Harrison has created the most amazing long exposure star trail photographs in the Australian Outback. Taking up to fifteen hours to capture each lens, Harrison uses standard, albeit high-end, photography equipment like the "Nikon D7000, Nikon D3100, and a wide assortment of lenses. Harrison captures a large number of exposures of the foreground and stars separately. He then combines the images (sometimes hundreds of them) into amazing photographs showing the sky dominated by colorful star trails."

The Kitten Covers: Famous Album Art Reimagined with Cats

I'm no hater, but I'm not usually much for cat memes. Maybe it's my allergies, but I just haven't found one that screams, "this is worth your time."

Except for these album covers, with visuals reworked to replace the artists with cats. This, I get.

Nominate Your Local Firehouse for a Brand New IKEA Kitchen Makeover

There is likely a secret culinary hot spot in your neighborhood...where you'll never get to eat. Deep inside that community staple - the firehouse - there are cooks and recipes to die for, many of which can battle restaurant chefs, and likely win.

The firehouse kitchen epitomizes the spirit of communal dining, as explained in this video interview with Denis Leary, star and co-creator of the NYC firehouse drama Rescue Me. During long shifts and a mindset of constant readiness, firefighters continue to gather and enjoy hearty, homecooked meals, likely with fairly bare bones equipment.

IKEA and The Family Handyman magazine want… read more

Awesome "Retro Modern" Superhero Illustrations

French artist and illustrator Grégoire Guillemin created these incredible "retro modern" superhero posters, taking clear influence from Bauhaus and Art Deco movements and 1930s advertising. He says, "As the name suggests, this is an "exercise in style" or rather a confrontation between two cultures: a personal culture forged during my childhood through comics books (among others things) and a professional culture nourished with the beginning of advertising."
