Newgrange Passage Tomb

Today, I learned there are many many more stone circles than just Stonehenge and Avebury. Including this one, in Ireland. I badly want to see it and go inside! Going inside something cave-like is much more exciting than just a circle....and there are carvings! I never thought about stuff like this existing before. Fascinating.

Beware, beware, be very wary Bear.

I discovered this fun song. Good but not as good as its predecessor :D

Pink elephants on parade!!

Mmm trippy.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Ok so if this isn't genius, what is? P&P spliced with zombie action! With illustrations!? Extreme joy! I need it.

Interiors @ Lyric Hammersmith

A few weeks ago I went to Lyric Hammersmith and saw Interiors. It was eggs. It was set up like you were watching through the windows into a house, and you couldn't hear what the characters were saying, just hints and observations from the narrator, who was another secret watcher. And there were lights/projection over the outside the house to look look like wind and snow and stars :)

Here's the official blurb:

Behind a window, in a cosy room, a group of friends
sit down for a meal. The food is being cooked;
the lamps are on, everyone is happy. Talk begins
and soon stories unfold around the table, stories
about the living and the dead, about missing
necklaces and what happens when people get hungry.

Outside someone is watching.

Vanishing Point return to the Lyric with this major
international collaboration following their sell-out hit
Subway. Utterly hypnotic, Interiors is about sounds,
silence, and the darkness outside the window. This production is inspired by the Nobel prize-winner
Maurice Maeterlinck’s astonishing play, Interior.

Robinsons Bird House

I have slacked posting lately...been so hectic finishing my masters and working in the bookshop...but, i think i'll be posting again now :) Yay to this ad of a bird house. Obvious highlight being the man clock saying hello. Also, the guardian posters on the way, tweet magazine, worm sausages and bird claw boots :D Attention to detail! Oh yes.
