Category Archives: Random Interests

Bunny’s Warren

Recently I’ve realized that due to the hodgepodge nature of my posts I’ve developed two very different types of readers who visit this site for two very different reasons. For instance, I’m pretty sure my grandma doesn’t care which bands I’ve been listening to this year and, on the other hand, I’m pretty sure those who are interested don’t really care that one of my bunnies just did a really cute flying kick while simultaneously shaking her ears. On second thought, my grandma probably doesn’t care about that either, but she’s obligated to feign interest.

So, I’ve decided to make the split and have created a different blog, Bunny’s Warren, which will be my outlet to report everyday happenings, trips, thoughts and progress with leukemia. I will also be hosting my CML info pages there. Battle Bunny will continue to be a place where I catalogue my mini-obsessions and share my excitement for random discoveries in music, art, robotics, nature, science  and anything else that strikes my fancy.

Hate Sheep, Love Holiday Sweaters

Just in time for Christmas I stumbled across this fantastic site, We Hate Sheep, We Love Holiday Sweaters. You can create your very own Christmas sweater! If only I’d known about this a month ago. Better late than never!

Here is the sweater I would have created. For some reason there was a panda bear available. Yes, please, I will make the giant panda a part of my Christmas experience!

There’s even a hall of shame on this site! Oh please, oh please let me make it! (See what sorts of things you can waste your time on when you don’t have kids!)

We Live in Public

I’m so stoked to catch We Live in Public (by Ondi Timoner) tonight! This documentary takes a look at dot-com millionaire, Josh Harris, and his incredible social experiment of the 1990’s, Quiet: We Live in Public. The 100+ artists who participated in Harris’ party lived completely free in a New York capsule hotel but agreed to do so under complete video surveillance (which was streamed into the other hotel rooms). After Q:WLiP, he and his girlfriend completed another 6 months living under 24-hour online surveillance which documented and helped to facilitate their breakup and his mental breakdown.

Ganesha and Mac ‘n Cheese

How cool are these Keds by Methane Studios? And they’re customizable so you can enhance (or decrease, depending on your aesthetic sense) their appeal! My studies in art history left me with a real affinity for religious iconography. My stomach’s studies in high fat,  nutrition-less foods left me with an affinity for mac ‘n cheese. I really want a pair of the Ganesha design… and maybe a doughnut too.

Covet, customize and buy them at Zazzle.

Monster Line-Up

I’m having a hard time getting into my usual happy Halloween frenzy. Maybe some Halloweeny posts will help.

I’m sure some movie geek out there can comment on how accurate this chart is. I have no idea. What I do know is that it’s a totally sweet idea! If you’re really wild about the design, you can get it on your very own shirt, here.

Karen O, Kids and Beasts

Karen O is having an incredible year. The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s latest album, It’s Blitz! is one of the best albums of 2009, in my opinion. As if that’s not enough, Karen O is the voice and  energy behind the Where the Wild Things Are soundtrack. It’s fantastic! I love that they opted for the genuine, unpolished voices of untrained children.

Here’s a cool clip of the making of the soundtrack. The movie is due out tomorrow!

Lucky Bunny Worldwide

The last week has been sucktacular. And what do I do when I have a bad day? Well, the same thing that every woman does – shop. I love these shirts of bunnies getting rowdy created by Rich DeSimone. Could there be a better lineup for Battle Bunny? My sweet friend Melaney purchased the tank bunny for me awhile back and I just bought the buckin’ bunny. You can purchase these and others at his Etsy shop, Lucky Bunny Worldwide. Yeehaw!

Darwin’s Darkest Hour

Nova’s 2-hour drama, Darwin’s Darkest Hour,  premiers today and will begin streaming online tomorrow. It looks pretty good. Also, Henry Ian Cusick plays Darwin so maybe it will satiate my LOST craving for a wee second.

Here’s the trailer.

RAD – Send Me an Angel

Today I passed by a co-worker’s desk who was listening to “Send Me an Angel” by Real Life which instantly reminds me of the 80’s BMX movie, Rad. When I was a wee lass I thought this was the frog’s pajamas. It’s pretty funny now. Oh how I wanted to be Lori Loughlin! I had the big hair but was a little light on the sweet bike moves.

Lollipie, Lollipie, Ohh Lolli Lolli

OMG, is this real life?  Luxirare should be given all of the Noble prizes ever for creating these life-changing lollies. Humanity will never be the same.
