longbodieslandwasters: Mongolian boy sleeping against reindeer

There was an incredible article in the Post today about the Tsaatan tribe in Mongolia who are reindeer herders. Mongolia claims the lowest inhabitant-to square mile ratio of any country. Something like 4 people to every 40 square miles. Their particular language [some form of mongolian?] is becoming extinct. The most local, and the last, teacher of the language went to the capital to get better pay so she could support her daughter, an aspiring contortionist.

Paintbrushes, move over. There’s a cooler way to paint in town. Enter water transfer printing, a hydro-coating process that essentially uses liquid images and ink to coat 3-D objects of any material. If only this sorcery could be used for our nails… new venture?

Spiffy’s First Full Feature! 

Perry Kveton’s 1974 BMW 2002tii:

You may have seen a couple photos of our friend Perry’s 2002 on Spiffy before, but this winter it went under the knife.

Perry shot some awesome photos of his vintage rally mobile in the Tahoe, CA. area. Speaking form a regular passengers perspective I can tell you it is impossible to have a bad time in a car like this!
