Hiding Places

Awesome architecture from Jules, aka RueFive
We met Jules a bunch of times when Emma was working at the Changing Room Gallery. He loves Stirling and we are trying to coax him through to Glasgow, long distance. Go check out his window and mural at Analogue books, Edinburgh.

Problem Solvers

New Paper Rad Cartoon Series "Problem Solvers", on YouTube!


Another excellent boombox therapy mix by Shex over at
download link


Another free mp3, this time Gay Against You's Remix of Glasgow Pop Band "We are the Physics".
This was originally featured as a download with their One Records single, "Less than Three".



Something I'm fascinated with, as someone who travels regularly by public transport in the UK and abroad, is the awesome pattern designs they employ on buses, trains and trams - From the weird purple, sky blue and maroon khaki design of the Berlin U Bahn subway, to the cartoonish Irish Setter repeat patterns on the Irish Bus √Čireann.
I guess its partly because a lot of the stuff is mostly ignored by the commuters and hardened travellers who use the services regularly but mainly its because I think it must be an amazing job - I can imagine a factory floor where the designers are continually coaxed to produce ever more eye wateringly complicated and jarring designs in the hope that they enliven the public's journey or at least break through the stupor of the early morning / late night slog to and from work. Here's to 'em!

I had to kick our bathroom door down yesterday, from the inside. I've never had to do that before. lach suggested I should take some photos but I was so scared about what the landlords would say, I didn't dare! Here's a photo of my busted up hands instead.
