Great Umbrella Design

Now this is one for the Christmas wishlist...keep both dry and 'safe' with this knuckle duster/umbrella combo designed by Tobiah Adam.


Paludariums Are Cool

I have finally found a hobby that can incorporate my love for fishtanks and my mrs.' love for gardening...Paludariums! A paludarium is a type of vivarium that incorporates both terrestrial and aquatic elements. Paludaria usually consist of an enclosed container in which organisms specific to the biome being simulated are kept. Half-land, half-water; perfect!!

RIP Leslie Nielsen

Nielsen, who has died from pneumonia at the age of 84, was a serious actor until he struck comedy gold at 54 as the hapless doctor in "Airplane!"
"Surely you can't be serious," an airline passenger says to Nielsen's character in the 1980 hit disaster movie send-up.
"I am serious - and don't call me Shirley," came the deadpan reply.....you will be missed Leslie.

The Melbourne Connection

The VZT has relocated to Melbourne and will be bringing you a taste of what's going on in this city, at least for the next few months. There is masses of graff up around here, so I'm gonna try to put up a selection of graff that I've found every week, as well as listing what shows/exhibitions are happening in the city.

Carnovsky RGB Wallpaper

These animal designs were created by Carnovsky for the Milan shop of Janelli & Volpi, a noted Italian wallpaper brand. Each features overlapping illustrations, different elements of which are revealed depending on whether a blue, green or red light is shone upon them.....nice idea.

"...I was as talented as the people I know, I'd be riding high - not looking up from below."

The winter has set in here in London and it is really hard to leave the house to do anything productive. Plus I'm broke and it's that month where I add another year onto my life and reflecting on what has been going on since the last time I did it. This time around (since I've not really done much to speak of at all) I have noticed that many of the people I know in the big smoke have really done some great things in the last 12 months. For this reason I am dedicating this post to the achievements of my compadres that are moving past the realms of 'alright' and into the realms of 'really quite fucking amazing'. Some of them you will recognise, some I feel deserve the recognition (so go to their links!!!)

Well done chums, may your success continue long into the future!
