Thursday MIni-Post — Ruined Spanish Jesus Fresco Hair Monkey Costume

A masterpiece...NOT 



Okay, so you all know the backstory, right?  80-year old Spanish parishoner, Cecilia Giminez, somehow got her inexperienced, albeit well-intentioned hands on a 19th Century fresco of Jesus entitled, Ecce Homo, (Behold The Man) by Spanish artist, Elias Garcia Martinez.  In her effort to restore it, she instead fubarred it (Effed Up Beyond All Recognition and Repair) to the collective horror of everyone on Earth.  
Check out this video of Mrs. Giminez's explanation.  She says that she had permission from the priest.  No statement from the priest on this, but everyone seems to agree that Mrs. Giminez did not have permission from anyone in an official capacity.  Interesting, though, that this old woman would have been happily botching up a beloved town treasure, and no one was around to notice.

Wednesday—Good For You, Good For the Home: Manly Scents

Manly Scents

A man likes to have his own stuff.

Manly products deserve non-girly pix, so I've used the manliest Photoshop filters I could find from Totally Rad.  They include Bullet Tooth, Bitchin B&W, Iron Mouse, Sparta, Old Glory, Troy, Handlebar Moustache, Old Skool, and Graphite.
