The Maker's Soundtrack

Making your own stuff can be pretty great. There’s something deeply satisfying about sitting back and admiring the fruits of a good DIY session. But do you know what is even better than making? Making to music!

We love makers here at Warhol’s Children, so we have put together some tunes for you to create to. And as an added bonus, if you’re in need of some DIY project inspo we’ve got that sorted as well… try getting stuck into some do it yourself jewelry. Go ahead, make yourself something pretty, or make a shiny shiny bauble for someone special instead. You know you want to!

Happy creating!

Lots of Love, WC x

The Inaugural Winner of The Mark Twain Prize for Contributions to Mayhem: Project Whippy

In late 2012 we announced the Inaugural Mark Twain Prize for Contributions to Mayhem – a $50 Award to spend on doing something random, pointless, irresponsible or hair brained.

This is a photo of the winning entry by Ryan Brooks, a snowman made of cheap ice-cream in a suburban backyard in early summer.

Ryan faced some seriously bizarre and socially irresponsible competition, but the idea of a snowman made of cheap ice-cream? 40 litres of sheer genius – Ryan, we salute you.

For closure, we asked Ryan to write a requiem for his snowman; you’ll find it and his photographs of the event below.

Requiem For an Ice-Cream Snowman

By Ryan Brooks

Whippy the Ice-Cream-Man was an angry, sanguine soul. How desperately he fought to forego physical form as we mashed his sloppy, creamy body into a vaguely humanoid shape. How horrifically he wailed as the humid Australian climate eagerly stripped back his imposed humanity, desperately pleading with us to stop.

“No,” we resolved. “Whippy shall live.”

And so, despite Whippy’s best efforts to shake off his mystical, life-giving hat, we succeeded.

How we circled and stalked around our confectionary-mutant’s birth, stomping the floor and licking our lips. How we gently nibbled on Whippy’s ear when we thought no one was looking and whispered sugary placations that were lost on our creation’s saccharin consciousness.

Though we may question the wisdom of our actions on that day for years to come, I am certain that we will never forget the day we made a snowman out of ice-cream.

Whippy

We're running the competition again this year with even more cash up for grabs which means even more silliness to be had. Competition details here: http://ow.ly/xUQOx

ANGRY WEDNESDAY: SOCIETY KILLED THE CELEBRITY

“Celebrity.” The word used to mean something, now it’s just an empty shell of a title for the next wave of automatons to conveniently put on just for the sake of doing so.

The Original Hipsters #5 [Couples Edition]: Zelda Fitzgerald & F. Scott Fitzgerald

We are introducing an overlooked part of the Hipster social sphere; the human powerhouse behind the literary world…creative couples. Power couples have their lives examined under the viewfinder of the masses. They are romantically and/or absurdly intertwined in history (or select Hipster bibles) - for good or ill, in various opinions. First up are the originators of style and a golden literary age, the Fitzgeralds. Zelda Fitzgerald was an undeniable influence on the renowned writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. A charismatic socialite, the chief motivator behind many of his works and a femme fatale to remember. Warhol’s Children’s Emma Bristow features Zelda’s reputation as a writer. One who seemingly can’t escape the legend of her creative partner in life
