Grayson Castro is our kind of artist.  He takes iconic images of, well, icons… and zombifies them.  As zombies hit a sort of renaissance in today’s pop culture (along with, unfortunately, vampires), Castro saw fit to take it into the high-brow world of art. Each painting is of a famous figure–Audrey Heburn, Dolly Parton, McCain and Obama (each with a tasty piece of baby), and even Lindsay Lohan, who looks alarmingly normal even as a zombie mess).  Blood splatter, beady dead eyes, and menacing stares adorn our favorite public figures.  They’ve vibrant and pretty–sort of the antithesis of zombiness–but perhaps that’s what makes them amusing and compelling.  Also, there’s a pretty hot one of zombie stripper kneeling in a pile of cash.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
