MPWA

Ooooooh, came across My Parents Were Awesome a few days ago and meant to blog it – essentially a lovely little photoblog with user-submitted pictures of their parents, back in the day, looking…AWESOME!

A quick fix of nice links

trashy pin-up cups

Due to my busy-ness, here are a couple of links that I liked the look of this week…

  1. Trashy Pin-Up Art gallery over at Trendhunter
  2. Ironically amusing collection of hints & tips from trashy womens mags at the Hero of Switzerland blog
  3. Random sandwiches at insanewiches.com
  4. Nice tilt-shift time-lapse animation of a beach
  5. flickr gallery of hand drawn-on cups

Lovely!


More Post-it Note Love

Post-it Note Stories

Stella Was A Diver loves Post-it Notes and here is the latest Post-it innovation, Post-it Note Stories, a blog of stories created entirely on Post-it notes.

How many more times can I use the name ‘Post-it Notes’ in this post…?

Weird and wonderful.

Stumbled across passiveaggressivenotes.com this morn and I LOVE it.

A collaborative blog where people send in post-its and other notes they find, mostly with a passive-aggressive flavour.

Happy reading!


Overheard in New York

Overheard in New York

Just came across Overheard in New York, a blog dedicated solely to listening in on what people say…just like my Random snippets of conversation posts.

Love it.

Firstly, apologies for the origins of the link… but how cute, the ladies of Mersham Afternoon Club in Kent have knitted their entire village!

Tons of images at the aforementioned link here…

Today’s two favourite posts…

…over at the Cakehead Loves Evil blog are as follows (click on the chicken in a can one for more grotesque imagery of said chicken leaving said can):

birds nest hair

chicken in a can

That is all.

Cakehead Loves Evil lives here.


texts from last night

Just come across this site. The idea is to submit texts from ‘the night before’, the funnier the better.

In a way, it’s a bit like my Random snippets of conversation posts. Oh yes it is.

Some examples:

  • “just witnessed a squirrel raping another squirrel. i couldn’t look away”
  • “literally had 100 drinks last night.”
  • “Vomit. Vomit. Whatever. You wear a tiara in public.”

1930’s dog drama

Really creepy, really odd:


Lost your luggage?

lost luggage

What a nice concept:

  1. Go to a ‘lost luggage’ auction (these do actually exist – in Tooting, I think)
  2. Purchase someone’s missing suitcase
  3. Take photographs of the contents
  4. Post it online and try to find the owner

Take a look at the isthisyourluggage.com project and see for yourself…


Loved To Death

New Blog Alert: Loved To Death: Taxidermy Memento Mori & Antiques

I am currently loving Loved To Death, a lovely little blog dedicated to the weird and wonderful world of taxidermy art.

I especially love the taxidermy ‘Chop Shop’. Cute and weird in equal measures…

That is a whole lot of love, right there.


Look at this fucking hipster

New Website Alert: Look at this fucking hipster

Tres amusing.

Composing New York

taking pictures

Came across the photographic work of Peter Funch yesterday, who takes daily photos of the same place in the same spot for 2 weeks, then fuses them together to one image. Nice work.

More of his lovely pics here…


Horsing around

Yesterday it was dogs in dresses, today it is horses with hairstyles. Loving this alliteration…what’s next? Cats in corsets? Rabbits who row?

Advertising photographer Julian Wolkenstein has teamed up with hairstylist Acacio da Silva to coiff some ponies. See the trio bigger here.

Thank you morning Metro.


Designer Dogs

Last month I was mostly interested in ‘creative’ dog grooming.

This month, I am all about the designer dog dresses.

What a website. So so creepy.
