In our continuing series of trying to find ways to make your Super Bowl/Valentine's/weekend parties just that much more interesting, we have to applaud Gama-Go and their Skull Ice Cube. On the heels of the LEGO Ice Cube Tray, we think its just as classy, if not classier, kids, to have your Scotch on the rocks. With a skull. Just a skull.
We really wanted to wait until Halloween on this one, but we just couldn't resist. Sure, you can eat your pancakes and eggs in their "normal" circular form, but why not treat the kids to an egg in a pirate's skull and crossbones style? How cool is this? Even if you don't like skulls, you have to appreciate this one...
After seeing the spectacle that was Damien Hirst's For the Love of God at the Tate Modern in London this past week, we sort of have a new appreciation for a good skull. Kelly Lamb's Skull Chandelier, although a tad gaudy and a bit of a tough sell for our dining room, we definitely like the composition of it.
Skulls look a lot less menacing (or human) if you just add some intricate bead formations to them. Our Exquisite Corpse are making these patterned, beaded skulls for purchase, just in time for your Halloween party that coinicides with your Day of the Dead party that coincides with your Burning Man reunion party. We like them.
What we have noticed before on this site is that you like skulls and housewares. So when we saw this series of silver skull spoons last night, we had to get them on the site this good Friday. Tom Sale did a great job on the series, which we read can be nicknamed "Skoons."

All year long, Juxtapoz is celebrating its 20th Anniversary by showcasing the pivotal figures in contemporary art over the past two decades. Some artists are blue chip, some are underground heroes, others are behind-the-scenes legends. This month, we honor one of the great artists from Los Angeles during our existence, Alexis Ross, who has been monumental in various landmark exhibitions including "Street Market" at Art In the Streets. From working with ESPO, TWIST, and REAS, or working on his own paintings, Ross' story is one of history, frankness, and colorful nostalgia.
