Brain Wash

Posted: Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Sadly we will not be doing the Crafty Bastards show in DC October 1st, but in case you’re going and are fixing for guts, check out this Brain Wash soap by Herban Lifestyle of Falls Church, VA. The bright side of not exhibiting at this shows is that I will actually get to go and walk around and look at stuff! Can’t wait to see wares from My Paper Crane, Schmancy, Kelso Doesn’t Dance, Horrible Adorables and other awesome people. I will be peddling guts the next day, however, at the Takoma Park Street Festival Oct. 2!

Have We Met Yet?

Hi there. I’m your kidney. You may be familiar with my friend, little kidney, but I’m bigger than him. Not necessarily better, but definitely bigger. We look the same, especially on the internet. But let me tell you, I am so large I have about twice the nephrons he has (ladies, take note). I’m not trying to brag or anything, I’m just sayin’, if you like clean blood, I can get the job done in half the time. I also produce important hormones, such as calcitriol, erythropoietin, and the enzyme renin. If that doesn’t knock your socks off, then kindly take note of my marvelous hangtag, which tells you all about the joys of homeostasis. It’s also filled with pictures of me (yeah, I have a twin brother, double trouble), your kidney, bad kidney jokes and pee puns, but who doesn’t like an organ with a sense of humor? Picture’s worth a thousand words, so why don’t you just read it for a second and tell me if you like what you see? I am big enough to hug, and did I mention I love to cuddle?

Wanna learn how to make your own organ-emblazoned tee? Look no further than Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational, a blog by a clever homeschooling mom. She’s got a stencil to make this great shirt, plus more ideas about how to get your kids into their guts. Fabulous!

Smooshy organ tights by Les Queues Des Sardines. Wear these under that intestine sweatshirt, and you’re ready for fall.

Does your sweatshirt have guts? Not as much as this one from Lazy Oaf. So cute! If you’d rather a shirt with bones, they have that, too.

A sampling of the brainy and gutsy delights you will find at Renegade Chicago, September 10-11th in Wicker Park! We’re loving the zombie uterus made by the folks at The Prick Cushion (they have regular uteri as well); Ork Posters has the most delightful maps of the heart and brain, both of which I am seriously coveting right now; and The Social Dept makes the most wonderful shirts, and this Heart of It All Ohio shirt is no exception. Other things we heart: Pinecone & Chicadee’s tooth shirt for kids and Methane Studios had a fabulous lung poster and shirt. You can also exhaust your adrenal glands at the Intelligentsia coffee stand or go into cute overload at The Small Object‘s booth. See you there, stop by and say hello to your guts at booth #92 on Division between Honore and Wood.
