Fashion 1. Safety 1. Hmm...


Danish brand Yakkay's makes these super safe and fashion forward bike helmets that resemble flatcaps and bonnets rather than the dowdy headgear that is usually worn by cyclists. I may start biking outside of the gym now.

Anti-Canvas Painting. Hmm...























 






These must have been so much fun for Jørund Aase Falkenberg to paint!

Not by James Jarvis. Hmm...

















Well, it's pure Jarvis under the hood. Outside, the Winston Churchill toy is a one-of-a-kind creation from the mind of another James, JamesYeah?, who took a James Jarvis Lars vinyl toy and reworked it into Britain's greatest ever Prime Minister for the latest UK elections. Pretty rad. Pretty sad too... it's already been sold!

St Vincent, 2 idiots and a bookstore. Hmm...

 
Shame. She's quite sweet and obviously too talented to be messed around by these two idiots. Guess she's got a great sense of humour too. Come to South Africa dammit!!!

Ice cream Land. Hmm...

Those Blackpudlians (is that what one calls people from Blackpool?) have all the yummy fun. Then again they do live in Blackpool.

Engines hum and better dreams grow, heart locked In a Gran Torino. Hmm...

Some lyrics from the theme song of Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood's masterpiece from a few years back. I caught the film on TV last night. I know. Amazing that there was something awesome on TV for once. It's undoubtedly one of the finest films ever made but the best part of it all wasn't Eastwood's directing or acting but rather, the few lines he sang at the very beginning of the theme song. It's haunting and beautiful and makes one wonder that if he'd just stayed away from Invictus, Clint Eastwood would have done no wrong in his carreer. 






Hmm... of the day.

















Or is it the hmm... of the future?

That one little nagging thing? Hmm...


























































 

It's called I LOVE YOU, BUT... and it's not to be confused with the site I LOVE YOUR BUTT... which doesn't exist but totally should!

Anyway, it's just a really simple and honest glance into those little annoyances that drive us crazy about the ones we love. 

You can even send in a photo of your loved one and your "I love you, but..." message and they'll sketch a little portrait and add it to their site. 

Thank you notes, to everything? Hmm...



































 
According to her site, Leah Dieterich's mother always told her to write thank you notes. So she does. Some are actually quite funny. Have a look: http://thxthxthx.com

Meowmania. Hmm...











It's like bubble wrap for cat lovers: http://meowmania.jqln.org/
