House of Cards Against Humanity
On Monday we quietly announced and sold out of a little pack of cards we made for Netflix to promote the new season of House of Cards, which comes out on February 14th.
This was a weird project, even by our standards. Here’s how it happened.
Basically this entire post is amazing. They’re essentially giving Netflix the finger, but pretending they’re saying “you’re number one!”
And they apparently got paid an (undisclosed) obscene amount of money to do this — which they then used to make a donation of “more than $49,999 and less than $50,001” (since legal will not allow them to state specific terms).
Also interesting: apparently both HBO and Microsoft have tried to work with the Cards Against Humanity crew in the past, but pissed them off so much that the guys quit each time. Fucking love these guys.
This is cool, but can we please just all pause and reflect in that last card combo?
Wait what the hell is that room way in the back on the ground floor?
Did I miss something in the last 25 years?
Good fucking god Frank Grimes was right they live in a ten room palace how did it just not occur to me it was that huge I don’t think I’ve ever even set foot in a house with that many rooms plus a basement
I believe the room in the back could possibly be the “childrens playroom” for bart/lisa ect
Shown in the Tracy Ullman shorts a few times.

This fairy-tale treehouse in Hokuto, Japan is supported by a single cypress trunk and surrounded by a bevy of cherry blossom trees. Built by architect Terunobu Fujimori for the Kiyoharu Shirakaba Museum, the charming treehouse is actually a Japanese teahouse that was built specifically for enjoying the cherry blossoms in full bloom. Fujimori designed the unique, one-legged structure to be sturdy enough to sway with the tree during stormy weather and through earthquakes. As you can see by the interior shot of the teahouse, though the outside is all fantasy, the inside is left both simple and modern.
Architect Terunobu Fujimori is known for his surreal structures which he creates using mostly natural materials like wood and stone. As Phaidon states, “In a pioneering professional career now spanning 20 years, the architect has produced two-legged teahouses suspended 20 metres above the ground; homes whose chimneys are planted with pines and whose roofs are covered in leeks and chives; and guesthouses that perch precariously atop small segments of white wall.”

Following up on our Metro story, now with video by Aymann and THX 1138 talk: Art of War: Coby Kennedy Turns Brooklyn Street Signs Into Post-Apocalyptic Weapons
“They’re almost acts of desperations in themselves,” he says about the weapons. “They are pieces of twentieth century left-overs that are repurposed for people’s momentary needs.” He rips a piece off his own curtains and starts wrapping it around the handle. “Purely utilitarian!” he laughs. Then, he drags the sculpture over the concrete floor and stomps on it, distressing the surface, weathering the weapon. “You gotta treat it like shit!” Sometimes, he uses beef blood for articulation. Or his own, if he accidentally injures himself mid-process. The sculptures themselves could hack off an arm. “At least two thirds of the way through,” the artist specifies.
