Yes, this is an iPhone pillow made for Drew Olanoff, most notably of #blamedrewscancer and textPlus, by his mom Lynda Harrison.

And while I do wish my mom was this Apple (and sewing) savvy, what's notable about this pillow is that Harrison started sewing it at the start of Olanoff's chemotherapy for Hodgkin's Disease and finished it right as he finished treatment, as evidenced by these photos.

Now I've seen a lot of tech-themed bedding in my blogging career, but I've never seen an honest to goodness homemade iPillow.

Why an iPillow? "During chemo my iPhone kept me alive and sane and connected," Olanoff says.

Best part: It has a small handmade side pocket -- that fits an iPhone

Can't wait 'til mom makes the matching iPad comforter.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
