Camera Lens Coffee Mug

Look what Santa bought me:

An awesome new camera lens mug – this looks just like the real thing. It’s beautifully made with a stainless steel inner mug surrounded by a plastic and rubber shell. The perfect gift for any camera lover, I ordered mine from PhotoJoJo.

Twisted graffiti by ROA

Street artist ROA has a rather unique, sinister style which I rather like. Click the pic for more examples…

Merry Christmas Everybody

Just a quick post to say that I’ve just uploaded a set of Christmassy pictures to my Flickr account. Merry Christmas everybody – have a great holiday and be good to each other…

Leatherman Skeletool

Apart from having a really cool name and looking great, the Leatherman Skeletool is probably the most useful little tool I’ve ever owned.

Now, I’m not an outdoors kind of a guy and I’m not big on DIY either, so I don’t have a large collection of tools and to be honest what really attracted me to this thing was the fact that it looked so cool. So I bought one while on holiday in the US (much cheaper) and sensibly, didn’t try to get it on to the plane in my hand luggage.

My job dictates that I’m pretty deskbound so won’t even pretend that I’ve taken it out of the house since I got it but it’s still proven itself useful numerous times. Opening packages, prising stuck batteries out of mice, opening the odd bottle of beer – you name it, the Skeletool has been there to help. Plus the novelty of of transforming it from one tool to another has never worn off…


Grum – Heartbeats

A great little gem of an album – very 80s.

As we get to the end of 2010 I thought I’d have a look back at some of my favourite albums of the year (in no particular order…)

I first came across Grum via some of his remixes of other acts so I was eagerly awaiting his first album and it didn’t disappoint. From the opening track ‘Through the Night‘ to the closer ‘Someday We’ll Be Together‘ there’s not a single bad track.

Turn it Up sounds like some rare unreleased Madonna single from her early days (and that’s a good thing). Well worth checking out if you’re partial to a bit of melodic dance music with plenty of synths and singalong choruses.
