This fairly awful mural has been on this wall along Railway Rd, Subiaco (near Daglish Station) for a heap of years now. A few years back a car hit the corner of the building, they bricked up the damage but never repaired the mural. That all changed last week. Heston, I love ya style man.
I'm a pretty big fan of online shopping. More variety, better service and you don't have to bother with finding a car park space. So I figured that seeing as I come across a fair few things I should share some of them with you. I know, what a nice thing to do right, it's just how I roll. Maybe it'll help you with your gift buying this Christmas. Or at least you'll see what I like and work out what you should buy me - see what I'm doing here? Wink*.
Riedel Decanter Cleaner Beads - perfect for cleaning out that decanter after christmas lunch. I mean those suckers can be hellish to clean, amiright? - $19.95 from Devlins
American Optical Flight Gear Original Pilot Sunglasses - same as those worn by the Apollo 11 crew (that's the one that landed on the moon - and yep they still make them) - $38.87 over at Amazon
Okay, whilst we're talking all things space, how about the original astronaut pen that writes upside down. Still manufactured by the original maker - The Fisher Space Pen $15.22 also from Amazon
Like a bit of photography do ya? Then these will help you out, esp if you like to phone cam. There's cheaper versions out there but these look to be a better quality than most. - $49.00 for the basic kit or $20.00 a lens special on at the moment over at Photojojo.
I thought this was pretty cool and would look awesome when used with a plain paper wrapping - London Skyline Decorative Sticky Tape, $30.00 from Fancy.
Um, seriously, does it get any cooler than this? - Doctor Who Ice Cube Tray $12.99 from Think Geek who are throwing in free international shipping at the mo. While you're there have a look around, it's an awesome website.
Possibly one of the coolest items I've found in a while. They have a water-activated seed capsule in the tip and the pencil tip also acts as a useful labelled plant marker - £19.99 via Firebox. Be warned, once you enter Firebox you may never leave, holy crap they have some stuff.
Consider the Tea Towel. Excellent stocking filler and some cool designs over at Design My World for £8.50. Check out the drop down menus for heaps of other funky gear.
Rightio that just about does it for this time round, if I collect a bunch more I'll post again. Happy shopping.
*it's cool, I've already bought most of these for myself
Okay the Bound 2 video by Kanye West is without doubt the worst video and worst song I have seen and heard in a long time. This version filmed shot for shot by James Franco and Seth Rogen makes everything good again...
There being the Dinosaur Footprint Wall in Sucre, Bolivia, called Cal Orko. It's a massive limestone slab which has 460 dinosaur tracks from at least 8 different types of Dinosaur. This adds up to 5,050 actual dinosaur footprints. (I've also read that it's over 5,000 tracks of 294 species of dinosaurs), either way it's a whole lot of tracks and footprints of a bunch of Dinosaurs.
Tectonic upheaval shifted the ground up to an inclination of approx 70 degrees and now it looks like this...
