Party Icing!

You know it is! Yes my friends - you are looking at the ass side of a party ring that's spent a bit too long in the icing line. That's right, iced on both sides! A new phenomenon for me - and I've eaten plenty of party rings in my time! Makes a change to the all chocolate Kit Kat where the wafer has gone walkies. Get munching, and see if you can find one!

Play It Again - On The Streets!

What better way to bring communities together than a good old sing song!? I'm off to London tomorrow, and I'm planning to try and find some of the street pianos - 30 pianos placed around London in public places as part of the City of London Festival. Anyone can have a tinkle on the old ivories, although I'm hoping that I might bump into Chas and Dave! The piano in Lyric Square (Hammersmith) will have a pro playing Irish classics tomorrow between 1 and 3pm. If you can play, you should come along and give it your best Stevie Wonder!

Not Just Fluff

I had fun in the sun on Sunday around Brick lane at the Art Car Boot Sale, and the Free Range graduate art and design show. So much fun stuff to look at + it's been a while since I drank beer at lunch time! I popped into the Sunday Up Market and came across a stall selling amazing t shirts - the above was my favourite, but there were loads to choose from. Big Fluff hand print all their super colourful, bound to get you noticed, designs in London! You should also check out their amazing bags!

Lamp orghini

There should be no argument that the Lamborghini Countach is one of the greatest cars ever made, so I was super pleased to find this collection by Swiss designer Martin Meier. The collection, called 'In Loving Memory - The Lamborghini Countach' is currently on display at the Appel Design Gallery in Berlin. Martin has applied the Lamborghini lines to other design classics - including the Verner Panton chair, which looks awesome. I wonder if Martin has a Peugeot with Lamborghini door hinges - I love that! Found via Daily tonic.

Music Charts

The geek in me loves charts, so therefore I love this print by Jez Burrows featuring a graphical interpretation of Destroyer's 2006 album 'Destroyer's Rubies'. It's available as a limited edition of 200 from the wonderful Analogue Books. I love their shop (in Edinburgh) where I saw this earlier in the year, but I only just realised that you can buy it online - hooray!

Baby Cats! Yeah!

I'm a massive fan of Adam Green, but add in a sultry female French singer and the mention of baby cats and I think I might possibly have found the best thing ever seen\heard on the internet! The above picture is of Soko (or St├ęphanie Sokolinski), a French singer\actress who appears to have quit music to go back to acting. But before she did, she performed a song with Adam Green while on tour - and you can find it on YouTube here. Amazing! To add to the excitement, it seems that Adam is going on tour, and will be in Oxford in September! Hooray for the internet! Yus! This is what a weekend of web surfing gets you! Not bad, I'm sure you'll agree.

Sesame Sweet!

I saw this recently and it brought memories flooding back - this is a collection of Sesame Street shorts collectively known as Pinball Number Count. It's a funky segment first shown in 1976 - with vocals by The Pointer Sisters. I just think it is amazing. Do you remember it?
