Right, back on Sunday for a few. Tonight, I'm going to have a few myself.

The first 12 have been chosen, and are ready for you to explore… And now we want you to decide what else our portrait should include. So what’s your favourite?"

No mention of Burberry caps and soapbar, then

Hush Hush Magazine Covers




















A scandal mag from the 50s and 60s. Amazing that so little has changed.

Amsterdam Lollipops

"Hydro-Chronic Lollipops, there is nothing like it. Every lick is like licking some Chronic. "

Bollox - more shameless marketing targeting the very group who are most likely to get hurt by the real thing.

Endeavour Botanical Illustrations




















These are superb.

"The voyage of HMS Endeavour (1768-1771) was the first devoted exclusively to scientific discovery. This site presents most of the botanical drawings and engravings prepared by artist Sydney Parkinson before his untimely death at sea, and by other artists back in England working from Parkinson's initial sketches."

Make Your Own Fairy Wings

"(Sad-but-true disclaimer: fairy wings do not enable the wearer to actually fly, at least as such action is defined within the realm of Newtonian physics. Flights of fancy are excepted from this disclaimer whether they adhere to Newtonian or quantum physics but we eschew any and all responsibility for any physical consequences of such flights--or physick required to remedy said consequences.)"

Cocaine Corner

A coke user's blog.

"In all honesty, I can't remember the last weekend when I didn't waste an entire day attempting to recover from the night before. And over the last few months, I've noticed that my ability to recover has been in sharp decline."

Could be interesting, might be shite. Cocaine and healthy lifestyles do not usually mix but each to his/her own.

"It is produced by casting polyester resins in highly-detailed silicone molds from a real pig. The pig, we are told, lost its life from natural causes and allen will donate $10 from each sale to the Humane Society to prevent cruelty to animals everywhere. These banks are not toys, they are fragile and should be handled with care. Available in fuzzy yellow, gypsum white and boyish blue."

Seems things are back to normal, hopefully.

Blogger Woes - Again

It took at least ten minutes to post the last entry due to Blogger software being knackered once again. I'm not sure if this will post or not (it tells you it's "waiting for Blogger" but doesn't seem to get a response, or if it does it's intermittent.) I'll do my posts later, although this will probably mean fewer than normal. Sorry - it's beyond my control.
