On Design Observer, Dmitri Siegel had a revelation when noticing some DIY pubs at the store: Karim Rashid’s scary Design Your Self (Rashid recommends extramarital sex for fun); the ballyhooed new Martha Stewart Blueprint with tagline “Design your life!”; Ellen Lupton’s DIY: Design It Yourself book–also, Lupton’s website is actually named Design Your Life, which he links to when Lupton reviews Rashid’s book. Is this too much or what?

Perhaps not, because it illustrates Siegel’s important point: we’re so obsessed with DIY that we’d even produce our own funeral. Let’s start planning now! Maybe one of these sites can help.
