This bizarre ad clip of Kevin Bacon acting the part of “Ivan Cobenk,” obsessed Kevin Bacon fan is noteworthy because there are Kevin Bacon crafts. Kevin Bacon cross stitch, need I say more?
Also incredibly cool, check out this amazing project by Travis Goodspeed, Arjan Scherpenisse and Fabienne Serriere called Multithreaded Banjo Dinosaur Knitting Adventure 2D Extreme!!! First of all, every word in the title is awesome… AND then it goes on to say it’s “A Bayeux tapestry* for 2010!” Coolest. Project. Ever.
Go read more about the project here and Travis’ blog post on this project here.

*For those still scratching their heads wondering what the heck the Bayeux Tapestry is go look over here. Also interesting, the Bayeux Tapestry museum and Bayeux tapestry: Propaganda on Cloth. Not to outdone by the French, you can learn more about “Britain’s Bayeux Tapestry,” a Victorian replica of the tapestry, here.
