What do you do when you are waking up with coffee and your computer, and happen to click on this ?
You find yourself going down the rabbit hole, researching freaky, lace-adorned, carrion-scented fungi, and wishing you could be somewhere tropical, like at the base of a rotting log in Central America, so you could draw these suckers from life.
You also wonder how you can work the term Crinoline Stinkhorn into your daily lexicon.
This granola is on regular rotation here at Casa Hobo. Dubbed “Farmhand’s Choice” by its creator, Nekisia Davis, the secret synergistic ingredients are maple syrup, olive oil, and sea salt. Trust me on this combination! Anyone I’ve fed this to always asks for the recipe, which was featured on Food52. I like to use a little less oil , but make up for it by being heavy handed with the pepitas and coconut. Substituting in hazelnuts is also pretty divine. Making a batch of this granola is the best kind of aromatherapy, in my opinion!

Whenever I’m feeling uninspired in the kitchen, I visit the Canal House ladies and my apathy evaporates. I want to crash every one of their (seemingly) impromptu lunches. I found this post particularly endearing – not only can these two cook, but they have a great sense of humour!
This visual reinterpretation of David Foster Wallace’s 2005 speech to the graduating class of Kenyon College has been all over the internet recently. And for good reason. Have a watch if it’s new to you.
While we’re talking awesome commencement speeches, here is Amy Poehler ( hilarious shenanigans and all) addressing Harvard’s graduating class of 2011.
Having some fun here at Casa Hobo.
The first time I saw Yoshitomo Nara‘s work was in print, almost two decades ago, when I was a devoted Juxtapoz reader (back when magazines were my internet). At the time, my exposure to Japanese art was sadly limited to traditional woodcuts, emblems and tattoos. I fell hard for his work , and it proved to be a great gateway into discovering contemporary art coming out of Japan.
Can’t afford an original? How about a Nara-designed doggy radio? Chronicle books also published a postcard book of his work awhile back – which is where this gem comes from. (Thanks for the snail mail inspiration, Avery. You have great taste!)
