First, a link: this New York Times article details Ikea Hacking, or turning Ikea furniture into either more-bizarre and personal furniture or something else entirely (like a guitar). As the reporter elaborates, such-like highly manufactured materials- whether found or purchased- are now being used by some as the raw material for design and craftiness, which is a nice way to prop up the global economy while also sticking it to the Man.

This also ensures that you’ll love your disposable Ikea furniture for years to come: use ingenuity and tools to make it entirely yours so you’ll love it forever, treat it well, and not want to throw it out. Plus people will be jealous of your neat stuff.

    well of course he’d say that. i bet he really hates your name. anyway. you have to post more often than never if you’re going to build a cult following of readers. also, you should give out freebies. green freebies, like mini solar panels or something. I’d offer some freebies, but all i’ve got is a pile of ‘i hate jim’ buttons. you can have them if you want, though. also why do you need my email address for me to post a comment? lame. what if i don’t want you to have my email address, huh? what then?

    I’m easing in. I think I am at that crucial point, though: I’ll tell other people about this thing um, really soon. How about that? I’ll get a substantive post ready (green drycleaning!?), and then boom!
