No list of rock stars that embodied the live-hard-die-young lifestyle would be complete with Jim Morrison, front man of The Doors. Prior to his death almost fifty years ago, Morrison was spending time in Paris where he created a few different notebooks of handwritten thoughts and poems. The appropriately titled “Paris Journal” you see here is the rare and historic unrecorded third notebook and is being sold from the private collection of Pamela Ashley. When the first two books in the series sold at auction they fetched between $140k – $200k; this green-tinted composition book is expected to fetch up to $100k when it heads across the block next month. The “Music Icons” auction that the notebook is part–it also includes Cobain’s ‘MTV Unplugged’ Guitar–of will take place online June 19th and 20th. Prior to the auction, the Paris Jounral will be on display at the Julien’s Auctions house for three days leading up to the auction.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
