Artist Kathy Bocchino has an Etsy Store called knottingwood and in her store she makes and sells some amazing wooden Kokeshi dolls based on everything from video games to pop culture properties like Harry Potter, TMNT and Star Wars.

I love the simple design because the painted details really draw me in. It’s a stark difference to something like Tony & Emmanuelle’s Wooden Gaming Heads.

10. “[Pregnancy from rape is] a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you…[rape victims should] make the best of a bad situation.” -Rick Santorum

9. “Back in my day, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.” -Foster Friess

8. On abortion after rape: “I think that two wrongs don’t make a right. And I have been in the situation of counseling young girls, not 13 but 15, who have had very at risk, difficult pregnancies. And my counsel was to look for some alternatives, which they did. And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade.” -Sharron Angle

7. “[Obama is for] health for the mother. You know, that’s been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That’s the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, ‘health.’” -Sen. John McCain

6. “The facts show that people who are raped — who are truly raped — the juices don’t flow, the body functions don’t work and they don’t get pregnant.” -Rep. Henry Aldridge

5. ”I would hope that when a woman goes into a physician with a rape issue, that that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage, or was it truly caused by a rape.” -Sen. Chuck Winder

4. “If I thought that the man’s signature was required… required, in order for a woman to have an abortion, I’d have a little more peace about it.” -Rep. Alan Dick

3. “Someone who is desirous of an abortion could simply say that they’ve been raped or there’s incest.” -Rep. Eric Turner

2. “What does it say about the college co-ed Sandra Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex, what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception.” -Rush Limbaugh

1. “First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare…If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” -Rep. Todd Akin

Famous Musician Portraits from Their Own CDs

It’s very popular to create musicians portraits from vinyl records or recycled cassette tapes. This time the following portraits were created from cds. For the inauguration of First Floor Under, a pop-vanguard culture magazine, artists Moreno De Turco and Mirco Pagano spent more than 200 hours lining up the CDs to recreate the portraits of seven world-famous musicians: Bob Marley, Elvis Presley, Jim Morrison, Jimmy Hendrix, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and Freddie Mercury.
