This wonderful website allows you to create your own books using it’s own online software to design and create exactly how you want your art and text to look. It is very reasonably priced too and I plan on using it very soon. I will update on it’s usefulness as soon as I have used it 🙂

Cat In A Bin

This story came out a few days ago, after CCTV footage caught this grey haired (I’m gonna call her old as well because she’s mean) lady stopping on a street to pet a friendly little kitten that had ambled up to her. It playfully jumped up onto the wall next to her for some attention, which she provided before callously grabbing it by the scruff and dumping it into the nearby wheelie-bin. The story was broadcast on the national news after RSPCA officials mounted a hunt for the devil woman. She was found and gave some stupid reasoning as to why she felt compelled to do what she did. Full story below. Needless to say she is a very strange individual and the kitten dislikes her very much!

Footage HERE

and full aftermath story HERE. She is facing criminal charges for cruelty to animals and rightly so!

Hello Bunny

Only in Japan! I’ve heard of Hello Kitty, but this is taking the carrott coloured pith. A coffee shop in Japan has opened with a rabbit theme. Apparently with strict animal ownership rules in Japan, a hole in the market has been found with this idea to be able to dine whilst getting to cuddle your favourite bunny. For a small fee, you can order rabbit themed dishes and then go for a cuddle with the shops domesticated bunnies out the back (away from the kitchen!)

To be clear there are NO rabbit dishes on the menu, just rabbit themed (e.g. in the shape of a rabbit) dishes. Sounds like a cute idea, although I hope these little Bugs aren’t being exploited. They have lives too y’know and I hope people aren’t constantly pestering them. I had two rabbits growing up: one grumpy and one insanely hyperactive and quirky. God bless Snowy and Humbug. Snowy was the grumpy one and Humbug used to do somersaults and lick your face. I have much respect for these animals, they’re very intelligent and awesome pets when looked after appropriately! More on this soon… ‘Cat in a Wheelie Bin Woman’, I’m coming after you next!

I’m Enjoying This Song

I’m generally a fan of The Killers and am pleased for Brandon Flowers that his first solo single is, well pretty great. The video is cool too, featuring an appearance from Charlize Theron as a Kill Bill-esque femme fatale saving Brandon’s ass every couple of minutes. The track is very Killers themed but as I read recently, the new stuff was intended to be released as a Killers album but the rest of the band wanted some down-time, enter a solo Flowers. Good luck to him but I hope the band don’t go their separate ways.

This is toe tappingly good 🙂 and I look forward to Brandon’s new album Flamingo released 6th September in the UK.

Another timelapse video for you. I found this a long time back but still find myself viewing it every now and then to relax me. 599 Productions manage to scrape away the grittiness of the urban environment and show the overall exterior without the human mess. Great job, such talent!

Timelapse by Mike Flores

 

Found this amazing timelapse footage by Mike Flores on Vimeo today. I’m always intrigued by timelapse work as I think it shows a fascinating look at the stuff we see all around us everyday but don’t have the time to truly see. Great work Mike, I hope you don’t mind me linking to you Vimeo page, I think the more people that see you talented work the better.
