01. It’s Geeks Vs. Nerds On The Lego Star Wars Foosball Table

“For all those who have played Lego Star Wars before, it might not be surprising enough that someone has combined the settings of the geeky Star Wars with the nerdy Lego aesthetic. However, what will be surprising is how much fun Star Wars foosball offers with its Star War characters on your team playing on the table made of Lego bricks.” (bornrich)

02. La Bolleur Mini-Golf Heads To Milan

“I first saw La Bolleur’s delightful indoor mini-golf course in Brit Leissler’s Dutch Design Week coverage this past October and wanted to make sure that you caught wind of the news: the course is going traveling and will appear in Zona Tortona during Milan Design Week. One (of many?) reasons to get my putting skills in gear, starting now.” (core77)

03. Spy: The Covers (above)

“Here are the covers of the 71 issues that Spy published — from October, 1986, to May, 1993 — while I was at the magazine. From the beginning, in order to acquire legitimacy in the media-entertainment complex, we enlisted celebrities and quasi-celebrities to pose as models, and continued doing that for most of the covers we produced — 36 in all, including those with Carrie Fisher, Tracey Ullman, Elvis Costello, Jay Leno, Wynona Ryder, Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert, Jamie Leigh Curtis and Sharon Stone. My favorites among these include Grandpa Munster & Tama Janowitz “Separated At Birth” (December 1987), Milton Berle in drag (March 1988) Chevy Chase making air quotes (March 1989), Bart Simpson vandalizing the logo (January 1991) and Wayne Newton with Mike Meyers & Dana Carvey (January 1992).” (coudal>ka)
