Topping stuff

Analogue watch that looks digital - that is MUY EXCELLENTE. It's made from fancy shit - gold, platinum, titanium and carbon fibre. I don't even know who it's by but I bet it costs shitloads.  

An Analog Watch That Looks Like a Digital Watch


I hope you are all well out there, I am mildly hungover and recovering from my taxi ride last night. After 10 minutes in a traffic jam I noticed a very home-made looking ad that the driver had stuck up on the glass behind his head. It was for Toppers BSDM Swingers club, dress code: PVC, leather, all black. It had photos of two Readers Wives looking women in top hats and some creepy leather shiz. How curious - that's quite a big statement from a taxi driver. It wasn't like an official Spearmint Rhino* ad on the seat which he'd been paid to put in, it looked like something he'd made at home with his swinging wife. Creepy. 

P.s. I have just looked up Toppers on the internet. http://www.toppersclub.co.uk/. Sexy times it ain't. 

*There is a Spearmint Rhino wagon parked in a street by my office which gets me every time - I think they use it to pick up and deliver punters to the club on Tottenham Court Road. It has photos of big-titted blondes all over it and I can only imagine how much I'd laugh being picked up in it. Also, it's a Chrysler - HA! Shame pile up or what.

War HUH. What is it good for?

Inspiring rugs apparently.

http://www.warrug.com sells these extraordinary Afghan rugs depicting rocket launchers, fighter jets, scenes from the Iraq war and the destruction of the twin towers. Kevin Sudieth - the War Rug rug dealer provides fascinating history behind many of the scenes depicted and notes that the prices have doubled since September 11th.

Who knew? Shits on Ikea.

Effortless-ish

I re-watched Brycreem's Effortless ad from yonder-ago. Effortless indeed - Sam Veale won a competition on MySpace to star in the ad. He had months of physical, mental and skills training to get the tricksy shot done in one take - take a look at the 'making of' video to get a feel for the pressure he must have been under. Good skills.

Oli and Alex a W+K creative team came up with the ad - check out their other stuff. Link

Whatevs Furbies

God, I always feel so bloody apathetic about posting anything on a Monday morning. I guess I can't feel apathetic about Laurie Hogan's mutant hamsters though. They deserve more than that. If we gave celebrity hairstylist James Brown some green and blue dye and a functional Barbie Hairdryer (they exist, I spent most of my childhood being furious about not having one) and set him on an albino hamster, do you think he could 'create' that middle one? We can only hope.

Down the plug'ole

Update: this post's vitriol is sponsored by Drunk Blogging. Take it away last night's me:

I'm watching Four Weddings and a Funeral while typing this post. "Is it raining? I hadn't noticed." PUUUUUUUUUKE. Andie McDowell is a rotter. 

More importantly - let's shove Andie McDowell down this insanely dangerous-looking lake-plug hole. See what your L'oreal contract thinks of the algae stuck to your face after this unlikely but horrific scenario.

Double update: I now have a rabid Andie McDowell fan hating me on Twitter.

Emperkening

My darling extremely formidable grandmother passed away yesterday. She was amazing - when I was little she told me that holding your breath closes the pores on your skin so stinging nettles can't sting you (not true), that brushing your teeth with soot makes them whiter (only in comparison to your black gums) and she slapped me the only time I called her 'Granny' (she thought it was common - she also thought Christmas trees were common and instead fashioned a winter ice-skating scene on a silver tray which we were allowed to look at for approx 90 seconds on Christmas morning). I have a feeling that after cooling her heels in purgatory for what could be described as her ruthlessly old-fashioned views she will mostly be upbraiding St Peter about letting undesirables into heaven. She will be sorely missed.

So here's a quick post of things which have cheered me up today - all of which Betsy probably would have hated. 





Perfectly Timed Photos  - a great site.

 - "Bitch, I want my Frisbee." - Little Jimmy regretted wearing his red cap that da

 - Svetlana is largely regarded as a perfect wife.


I heart this kid. We have a similar misguided non-sense of rhythm.

Kevin Bacon loves (Kevin) Bacon

SNAZZ! Kevin Bacon plays Ivan Cobenk, Kevin Bacon's biggest fan in this ad for Logitech Revue with Google telly.

As the video of Ivan's superfan interview about Kevin plays you can click on outlined items throughout to find out more about them and or buy them - see Ivan Cobenk's Twitter link (He named his cat Kevin Bacon, after the actor, Kevin Bacon), buy the prop wieners from Apollo 13, bid for an oil painting of Ivan and Kevin by Ivan on Ebay and plenty more.

Only watch this if you have time to spare / click. It's good.

If you have another child I'll run away and never talk to you again.

These posters for the magazine Covet Visi speak directly to me as an only child. I think my top tantrum was aged three when I took all my clothes off and banged my head repeatedly on the ground on a cliff in Cornwall, screaming all the while in order to get my parents to carry me on their shoulders but they were laughing so much they couldn't even pretend to lift me. I got my mother back some years later when I trailed her around the supermarket with an exaggerated limp while she yelled at me over her shoulder to hurry up and stop dawdling - unaware that it looked like she was yelling at her child for being crippled. The exchanged glances of horror and "social services?" from the other shoppers was priceless and mum had no idea until I told her ten years later. Meh hehehehe. Cackle cackle. Sorry mum.

On the Razzle Dazzle


This blows battleship grey out of the water - Jack Dyson explains further:
"In the early 1900s, round the time that artists started playing with cubism and form, military tacticians started looking at camouflage. Dazzle or Razzle Dazzle was a style of painting invented by Brit Norman Wilkinson. He  used intersecting geometric shapes to break the silhouette of a ship on a horizon. It doesn’t make it invisible, but it does make it harder to see which way it’s going and how fast (which in turn makes it harder to hit)."

Chip Chop!

Sweet stuff from Melbourne label Chip Chop. Aussie labels and designers really seem to be at the top of the pile for stylish creatures at the moment. During my time in Sydney at Christmas, I definitely noticed a freshness that's lacking in London.
