were was monstrum when i was wee?!

check out these wonderfully imaginative playgrounds by Monstrum. the following is from their website:
MONSTRUM believes that playground design should be a reflection of the world surrounding us. We see the world as a place full of colour. We meet boys that like pink and girls that likes trees, so why only play on a monky frame and a sandbox, when you can play in a moon crater or a submarine or a giant spider or an enormous snail or a Trojans horse or a rocket or an ant or a princess castle. The fantasy is infinite.

how awesome is that?! see more here.

colby college mountain day

k, so I live in Toronto, Canada. no mountains here and no such awesome tradition as 'mountain day' - a student celebration in the north eastern U.S. where classes are cancelled without prior notice and the whole student body heads to the freakin mountains. apparently this has been going on since 1838. this is first i've heard of it and i think it's pretty darn rad. the photos you see here are from a Life magazine feature on Colby College Mountain Day in October of 1950. so very charming. more here.
