Skot Olsen -- Blessed Saint Architeuthis
Classic piece of freaky squid-related art, now purchaseable on giclee for $200! (very tempted)
Saint Architeuthis is the patron saint of doomed sailors. While the origins of the saint remain unclear, it's recent history and worship are well documented. Whalers who turned their attention to catching giant squid and sea serpents in the 19th century, began asking Saint Architeuthis for mercy whenever a hunt would go awry, which was fairly frequent. When hunting for such animals, one would sometimes be thrown over board or a boat would sink exposing the men to whatever was in the water at the time. A sailor would ask Saint Architeuthis for the quick and relatively painless death of drowning, rather than the hideous demise of being ripped apart by the beak of the squid or chewed up in the sea serpent's hideous maw. Often, men would have visions of Saint Architeuthis who would appear before them in the form of a gigantic, yet benevolent squid wearing a bishop's mitre and carrying tools of the squid hunter's trade.

Stayhold
a completely new patent pending product designed in Ireland that is going to change the way people use their cars for carrying goods.  It is a solid plastic product that grips the carpet in your car and acts as a barrier to hold loose items securely against the side wall in your car trunk or boot.


Found out about this online -- a US-based acquaintance raving about them being worth the shipping from Ireland. nice work!
