Los Feliz Daycare runs coconut water through its faucets, encourages kids to recycle their parents’ medical marijuana jars into lunch pails, and is lucky enough to have Thom Yorke as an acting guest professor. It’s a wondrous child-care gem for hipsters in the heart of Los Angeles—and it’s completely fake. Who is behind the digital curtain of Los Feliz Daycare’s spot-on parody and loveable, boho-mocking Twitter account? Meet Jason Shapiro—a comedy writer who is neither a parent nor a resident of Los Feliz.
Have you seen this “Baniwi” video floating around your Facebook feed? The video, featuring a soft-spoken man in a crisp button-up, shares how to combine a kiwi with a banana, and consequently blew the minds of people around the world—mostly gullible ones. Although this video may be completely impossible and untrue, it embodies all our fondness for Robert Mahar’s creative mind. Knock Knock recently collaborated with Robert to create our new Paint-by-Number Postcard Kits and Personal Awards Ribbons. These six vintage-inspired gifts, including the paint by number for adults kits, perfectly illustrate Robert’s talent for reinventing old-school crafts with a decidedly modern twist. Read more about Robert in this special Q&A.
Dana Eagle’s not your run-of-the-mill comedian. For instance, we assume very few comedians have had the opportunity to be on the receiving end of the legendary Roseanne Barr saying she wants to “hear more about you, growing up and becoming the odd person that you are,” in front of millions of viewers across the world. Dana already has that under her comedic belt.
Knock Knock’s newest book, In Heroes We Trust: Street Artists and Their Heroes, hit shelves this summer. We chatted with its curator, Neely Shearer on her background with fashion, street art, and how the book transpired.
