Super Music Monday

13 Jun

So it’s Monday. What can I say? Sometimes Sundays just run away from me.

1. I spent much of last week plugged into the Desert Island Discs archive while I worked. LOVE IT. You learn some incredibly random things about people, such as Joe Simpson, mountaineer, being really into trance music.

2. Quick yay for the funding news! Superest thing of the week. image via weheartit

3. Read some brill books recently – Bossypants by Tina Fey, and The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. Do it.

4. Saw lots of friends and family this week. Good food and good chats.

 

5. I went to the Slutwalk London rally on Saturday and it was AMAZING. I could hear the march coming before I could see them flood into Trafalgar Square, thousands of women singing “There will be a revolution when we fight for women’s rights” to the tune of When the Saints Go Marching In! Earlier today my friend Tamsin Omond put into words exactly how I felt, “i had my reservations about slutwalk. they were blown sky high by the massively inspiring, inclusive and complete day that it was. from women to trans to gay men to immigrants to sex workers to black women – all were invited to stand together fierce against this fear and the victim-blaming that surrounds this threat.” Great blog post here as well that deals with some of Slutwalk’s critics.

6. Living with Chronic Bitchface. Hilarious. I FEEL YOU Kris Atomic.

7. UN climate negotiations are happening right now in Bonn. Follow the super Adopt a Negotiator project to keep up to date on progress (or not, as the case may be).

4 Simple Goals – mega updates no. 3 & 4

9 Dec

Oh-kaay. Here are my last updates on the progress of my 4 Simple Goals! I have already updated on the lipstick-wearing and crafting, and my other two goals were to learn how to use my camera and to make a nice nest for myself in Brighton. So I thought I’d combine the two for this post and take some photos of my flat! I also used the photo editing tool for Mac here – ToyCamera AnalogColor. I hope you like the pics, I’ve tried to make it look homely and cute, and I’m pretty pleased with it!

This was the view from my bedroom window last week – amazing, huh?

Downtown from behind

12 Nov

LOVE love love this NY photography project, Downtownfrombehind, which captures people riding their bike on every street, avenue and lane below 14th. From behind, like it says. The folks at DFB are into design, sustainability and nice bums from the looks of things. WHAT’S NOT TO LIKE?

Giddy up!

Good god I want one of these! “Horsey” by Eungi Kim from Korea is one of the shortlisted design entries in the Seoul cycle design competition. Kim says, ‘Horsey’ is an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one’s bicycle look horsey! The ‘horsey’ package includes wooden ornaments (horsey shape body), metal parts, and screws. The manual is very simple so that anyone can easily arrange it according to one’s needs. Through this ‘horsey’ project, I wanted to give a special look to bicycles so that people would care about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet.”

I would like to care about transportation as a lovely pet.
