Potato Chip Maker

My friend Tempest gave me this potato chip maker for Christmas! It’s in the cutest box and I can’t read the instructions but with a few instructable Youtube videos I figured it out. Oh my – 100 calorie bowl of potato chips – no oils, just potatoes- tasting amazing = mind blown! So yummy.

See? Box is too cute.

It comes with a built in potato grater.

It slices them very thin with not much arm effort.

Then you put in that potato holder tray.

You put in microwave for about 3-4 minutes.

They are crispy, thin, delicious, life changing, etc.

The entire bowl is just 1 medium potato. :)

New Articles

We like being interviewed, being lost in translation and babbling on about some augmented futurist concept that only exists in the imagination but talking about it so excitedly that by the end of the phone call the interviewer now think it exists in reality.   I like when people write articles on us and don’t discuss the fashion mumbo jumbo, “i like photography because i love capturing true beauty” bs, because that’s not why we do it.  I like when people write about us and mention our cats, Mister Wubba, our garden, our imaginations, the things that excite us.  This is really us.   We like being part of projects that are about fun, about creating – not about the politics of anything else. 

So with that said… some new press and interviews that we really liked how they came out.  Click to enlarge.

First is El Fanzine, which is a newspaper dedicated to art in Mexico City.  We liked this because Mariano is a great person who asked to do this feature on us and their emails made us smile. <3

Next is a article from Fashiontrend in Italy. This one is great because it talks about our world, give a pictorial of our “crib” and shows all of our cats.  Can you imagine the situation we would have on our hands if they only showed 3 cats? There would be a kitty war here!

Lastly you can find this article here from RevistaTrip in Brazil.   Here is the translated version.

We do alot of interviews so will try to remember to post as they come out. Hope you enjoyed. :)

Tea Calendar

Hello friends,

Today is December 1.  Oh my, the best time of the year!  December 1st is a great day because today I get to start my Tea Advent Calendar.  This is a project I am part of on Swap-Bot.  Swap-Bot is a site where you do swaps with people from all over the world, I am obsessed and if you know me in real life you already know this.    I received this Advent Calendar a few days ago and today, being December 1, I got to start..

This is the front, I like robots:

Received this for the tea advent calendar swap.

This is the inside, they are all different teas to try! I am crazy about tea.  I drink like 5 cups a day.  If you come over I will ask you for tea and you will be like “What kind do you have” and probably expect 1 or 2 selection list, but I will surprise you with a overload of teas from all over the world where you become confused and can’t decide!

Received this for the tea advent calendar swap.

Mr. Robot who is decorated for the season holds my calendar.  He keeps my teas safe!

Today is December 1st so I get to try the Good Earth Original Sweet & Spicy Herb Blend.. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t too sure about it, I’m more of a Dark/English Tea drinker…

But oh my, it knocked my slippers (I had no socks on) off! It was quite a delicious treat in the morning.  I enjoyed it in my Grandpa mug. <3
