Romain Laurent

Love looking at the slighly surreal photography of Romain Laurent.

Folk Archive

I’ve been admiring this book for a while now and thought it was about time I shared it with you. The Folk Archive, by Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane, brings us the drawings, paintings, costumes and sculptures of the Great British public. The book encourages you to laugh with these accidental artists as opposed to patronising them, as previous books on the subject have done. All in all, it’s a book that will make you smile. The interactive website contains lots of the book’s content.

The month of January is usually the start of many detoxes and re(new)ed gym memberships, and fittingly, London based Chinese designer Daizi Zheng has created a series of healthy snacks packaged to look like your everyday vices to temp your January blues towards a more healthy lifestyle.

Newton Virus

Featured on Human Resources back in August 2008, the Newton Virus is named after the father of modern mechanics. The virus introduces the concept of gravity causing your desktop to behave exactly as it would in the real physical environment. Desktop icons become susceptible to Newton’s invisible force and fall, roll and tumble in whatever direction gravity pulls them delivering a little bit of reality to your virtual environment. It is now freshly available for download and your amusement.

Dead of the Living Night

Amazing 3 minute compilation of classic 80′s fantasy horror, Dead of the Living Night. I hate to say but they just don’t make movies like these anymore.

Greece Is For Lovers

Some fun Greek, mythological inspired products and commissions from Athens (where else?) Greece Is For Lovers.

Men Versus Women

This ingenious Oldstar Beer advertisement basically tells you all the gruesome, rude, obnoxious truth in contrasts between men & women.
