"Quotation Mark" Abuse

Quotation mark abuse is "running rampant" throughout "society". Here's a pool of photos on Flickr that documents the atrocity. I think I first found this link on boing boing... just to give credit where credit is due. Great time killer!

(Terran) Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster

Since it's Friday and rainy and I'm sure many of our minds are already at the pub (did I just turn British?), I think an appropriate posting would be the recipe for the (Earthly Version) Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, the best alcoholic drink in existence (according to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and the namesake of this blog. If anyone ever actually makes this, and (gasp!) then drinks it, please document and send my way!
1 oz. EverClear
4 oz. Bombay Sapphire or Jeremiah Weed
4 oz. Cold Wild Turkey
2 oz. Herredura Tequila
5 oz. Rum
1 worm from bottle of Mezcal
2 oz. Gatorade

You can find the original recipe here

Estudio de Diseño // Zoveck

So I have been doing a lot of research looking for inspiring imagery for an impending tattoo (appointment is June 29th with Stephanie from New York Adorned, more to come!) and came across this fantastic group of designers from Mexico named Zoveck. They create the most incredible vintage/kitsch/mexicana imagery for an array of projects ranging from print and animation to individual art work. Check out their site which is fun in and of itself. I am currently trying to obtain a copy of their book called Manual Ilustrado de Magia Blanca but have had no luck as of yet; if anyone knows of a foreign/hard-to-find book distributor that may be able to help me, perhaps you could pass along their contact info? Though it may turn out that it's just a limited edition monograph, in which case I'm out of luck, but my Spanish is quite limited so I can't decipher from what I've found thus far!
