In a previous life, I spent ten or so years in the world of architecture and interior design, which is where I first became acquainted with the Canstructioncompetition. Canstructioninvolves teams of design industry professionals who conceive and build amazingly creative structures made entirely from cans of food.Sponsored by an eponymous international hunger relief charity, Canstructionsources donations of millions of pounds of food for local food banks through annual events across the country. At the end of each competition, all the food is donated to a local food bank, such as NYC’s City Harvest. In 2020, the event was canceled due to Covid, but his year, the completed structures were back on public display from November 4th to 15th at the Brookfield Place mall in Battery Park City. I’m happy to report I was able to check them out in person. Let’s take a look at the inspired competition from the 2021 Canstruction NYC!
This song reminds me of going to Prom if Prom had been a halfway decent memory for me. See how many pop culture icons you can spot in this lovely and whimsical video by The Griswolds for their very sweetly romantic and nostalgia inducing song, “Red Tuxedo.” Find out more about The Griswolds at their FaceBook page, found at This Link! Enjoy!
I never had to take the bus in grade school as we lived just two blocks from the school. Suburbia! But the school bus did always seem like it might be kind of scary for little kids to ride: especially for kindergartners, many of whom are just learning to handle being separated from their moms for the first time in their lives. Scary! A school district in Osaka, Japan solved this separation anxiety problem by customizing the traditional yellow school bus to resemble a cheerful Pikachu – the most popular of all the Pokemon! Who wouldn’t like to ride this bus? School is fun!
