From 1967, How to Wrap Five Eggs is a real inspiration for both designer and maker

How to Wrap Five Eggs: Japanese Design in Traditional Packaging
by Hideyuki Oka (author) and Michikazu Sakai (photographer)
Harper & Row
1967, 203 pages, 10 x 11.6 x 1.2 inches (hardcover)
From $35 Buy a copy on Amazon

This book is a museum of traditional packaging artifacts from Japan. Before the age of plastic, the Japanese perfected the art of packing consumables in incredibly ingenious ways. They excelled in using natural materials such as paper, straw, clay, and wood. Much of the packaging looks astonishingly modern, even though the form may be hundreds, if not thousands of years old. In fact, packages in Japan today often are wrapped in the same way. I recently received a gift from Japan that contained seven layers of boxes within boxes, wraps within wraps, each layer its own exquisite art, the packing at least equal to the cost and worth of the gift inside. There is a mesmerizing variety of packing collected during the last years of traditional Japan on display here. Each artifact is featured in stunning black and white photographs. It is a real inspiration for both designer and maker. Long out of print, this masterpiece of design was first published in 1967; used copies can be found today at rare book prices. It has also been republished in a modified paperback form, that contains some of the original content at a smaller scale. – Kevin Kelly

<![CDATA[What If Star Wars Was Made As A Cheap Grindhouse Film?]]>

Fan made films and trailers are some of the best things going on in the land of the Internet so when someone decides to combine two of our favorite things and turn Star Wars into a cheesy grindhouse style trailer complete with the classic coming attractions prevue opening we’re all for it! Done in the style of films from the 70’s with dialog hyping the film up as a must see, glitches in the 35mm print and cut scenes that make for a dramatic and awesome moviegoer experience.

Check the trailer below and enjoy a good laugh.

Heart and Brain have extremely different view points but always remain best buds

Heart and Brain: An Awkward Yeti Collection
by Nick Seluk
Andrews McMeel Publishing
2015, 144 pages, 6.5 x 8 x 0.4 inches (softcover)
$9 Buy a copy on Amazon

Heart and Brain is a wonderful collection of the lovable characters from Nick Seluk’s The Awkward Yeti webcomic. This special print edition features over 75 exclusive comics, as well as dozens of previously published fan favorites. The exclusive comics are the real draw, since they’ll be totally new to you even if you’ve read every single comic online.

If you’re new to Heart and Brain, the title says all you need to know about the characters. Brain is the rational one, always looking out for the logical, safe thing to do, while Heart is all about passion and seeking out the things he loves. Seluk creatively captures the constant push-and-pull between these forces in us all and externalizes them in some of the most endearing characters in comics. It’s hard to not fall in love with Brain’s neurotic over-worrying, and Heart’s blissful aloofness. They’re a perfectly matched odd couple because they come from such extremely differing viewpoints, but they always manage to meet in the middle.

The comics themselves are hilarious. I don’t think a single joke misses the mark in the entire book, which is pretty incredible. Seluk understands his characters on such a fundamental level that everything they do and say feels authentic. They’re just as endearing as other comic duos like Calvin and Hobbes, and their stories have the every day simplicity of Peanuts. The Awkward Yeti is an extremely modern comic, constantly addressing technology and common modern life issues. It can do the office humor of Dilbert, the slice-of-life ease of Peanuts, and the simple punchlines of Garfield. The main appeal to the comic is thinking “I know that feeling!” after seeing Brain humorously stress about past regrets just before going to sleep, or Heart being overly excited about something silly. Seluk’s ability to poke fun at his hang-ups on just about everything makes it easy for the reader to relate their own idiosyncrasies. Seluk will be releasing another collection in October and you can be sure I’ll be picking up a copy. – Alex Strine

<![CDATA[Tread Perilously Podcast — The Rockford Files: Irving The Explainer]]> Tread Perilously hits the streets of Los Angeles circa 1977 with a baffling episode of The Rockford Files.

When Jim Rockford is hired to track down the associates of a disgraced 1930s film director with Nazi sympathies, he gets involved in an art heist, a thirty-five year old murder, possible Nazis — though they might be Stasi — and the present-day murder of a man named Buddy. All of this might have something to do with the French police hunting down a missing 1789 painting. But then it might not. Rockford sets up a conspiracy board to keep track of the clues that never really helps. In fact, writer David Chase and director Screen Legend James Coburn probably lost track of the plot as well.

Erik and Justin wax nostalgic about Los Angeles’ poor air quality, crappy Studio City apartments. They also determine the price of entry to the Communist Party and once again invoke jokes from Airplane! II: The Sequel. Memories of doughy tough guys lead to a discussion of The Nice Guys and proper screen heavies.

Also, Erik forgets about Megaforce.

Mike Upchurch was a writer for Mr. Show and MADtv but now he's making these clever little videos with additional actors spliced into the narratives of Cocktail (the Tom Cruise movie) and the Dragnet TV series.

Both feature actor/comedian Chris Fairbanks in the lead role and are noted as "proof-of-concepts" for a series called Electric Television that Upchurch is presumably developing. Someone should greenlight it. (via @dunstan)

I think we all know that the shit the crews of Federation starships go through would provoke some pretty hardcore cursing from even the most stoic of people. Who isn’t going to let out a giant “FUCK” when their best friend is eaten by a salt vampire? Thankfully, a Twitter account has stepped up to fix the problem TV censors caused.

And yet, somehow the amount musicians get paid each time their songs stream is a tiny fraction of a cent." (more…)

<![CDATA[The M-Tet Plus Two “Sal’s-U-Save” Part 1 & 2]]>

One of our favorite bands that continue to mature in sound while delivering rock solid releases via Detroit’s Funk Night label as well as the bands own Lugnut Brand is the Bay Area’s The M-Tet. Coming in on the heels of their most recent release “VAMP, Oakland” and in a league of their own, the The M-Tet adds a Plus Two to the line up for their upcoming 45 titled, “Sal’s-U-Save” Parts 1 & 2. The Plus Two in this case adding a welcoming touch to the groups sound is Eric Mekkelson on tenor saxophone and Dave Berger on congas which rounds things out rather lovely and reminiscent of Jimmy McGriff’s finer grooves. The trio of Chris Lujan, Michael Reed and Gary Pitman already had working chemistry going on and now with the mid season roster change, the funk really flows and it shows on this two-part dosage of heavy organ jazz, which sounds amazing.

The M-Tet is the type of band that you feel classy listening to, a band that you arrive early to the jazz club just so that you can secure the front row seating to take in and experience something magical. If that’s the type of feeling you enjoy, then definitely do yourself a favor and pre-order a copy here http://themtet.com/store.html.

<![CDATA[Bad news for Macy’s, Winona’s Stare, & The over-spokenness of Bespoke]]> LINUS ALWAYS HAD ALL THE FEELS:

Contemplative Linus from http://decadentlullaby.tumblr.com | The Weekend Dossier on Dappered(thank you)


PARTY RULES: This seems kind of reasonable. I guess. Don’t look at me like that. These rules totally suck. Urp.

HEY! Someone should tell the editor about this stuff pronto! I smell a sweet contest here.

RIO! Just when I thought that maybe, perhaps, the games in Rio were going to escape any embarrassing gaffes, things are getting green. And greener still. So naturally, uh, this. Then there’s this. And, because no one saw this coming, this. (Thanks to the editor for the Pepe tip.)

THE TRUTH HURTS: Looks like some folks are once again proving that they have advanced the art of tantrum throwing in the digital age.


Winona from http://somosinevitables.tumblr.com | The Weekend Dossier on Dappered(thank you)

WELL THIS IS NOT EVEN UNEXPECTED: Yes, I will be listening to this all weekend.

SMELLS LIKE DEATH SPIRIT: Even Mother Nature is fed up with 2016.

WHAT ARE WORDS FOR? English is kind of a bullshit language when you start to dig into the nuts and bolts of it.

SPEAKING OF WORDS…someone over at the Times has an issue with one we tend to see a lot of.


Bar Hardy from http://kinghardy.tumblr.com | The Weekend Dossier on Dappered(thank you)

TROUBLE IN THE CITY? Don’t you hate it when you spend a shit ton of bank on a fancy pad and the building pulls a Pisa?

WELP: More trouble for a venerated department store.

WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN’ BADGES. Well maybe just a few. Editor’s Note: As Team Dappered’s resident Eagle Scout, I hereby encourage anyone still in the Scouts to slip one of these on their sash as an Easter Egg. Seriously. Do it. How great would it be to have your “cannibalism” badge in between “cooking” and “wilderness survival” on the sash? Makes perfect sense.

ONCE UPON A TIME: These don’t even look real. The hyper stylization looks more the stuff of early century science fiction. But for reals. Completely rad.


Lilliput from http://denisepsouza.tumblr.com | The Weekend Dossier on Dappered(thank you)

IF I COULD TALK TO THE ANIMALS…Best closed captioning ever. I mean, from a certain perspective anyway. Am I right? I totally am.

ONCE UPON A TIME…there was evil. This seems like it should be an HBO series. Because, wow.

THE HELL. IS THAT? Lay off the cat chow Luca. Goodness. THE HELL. IS THIS?

YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS UP: This would sound beyond over the top were it a novel. But it is England, so…it’s rather perfect.


Tim Johnstone is Dappered’s music correspondent as well as our resident gatherer of all things interwebs related. He doesn’t really hate people. Mostly.
