_I stumbled across this 'Magazine for Architectural Entertainment' on one of my many walks home from work in NYC this summer. Published out of Brooklyn and now available in only a few UK outlets, its just so beautiful, and I love the idea, kind of an up to date RayGun with the Carson aesthetic still in tact.
So nice. It makes me happy, inside.

_Adopting all the attitude of hip hop posturing, Dash Snow’s 'Fuck the Police' presents a prized collection of newspaper headlines emblazoned with instances cop corruption. Each salacious story is splattered with cum and framed and mounted as a trophy. Wittily combining protest with hard-core bravado, Snow’s installation draws upon fictional connotations to conjure sociopathic images of gangsta persona. In his ballsy statement of counter-culture vehemence, Snow merges Warhol reference with Tarantino sensationalism in humorously pathological display.
F.Y.I - Dash is hot.

_Done alot of listening to this album at the moment aswell, and it was only upon spotting the CD in my pile that I remembered the incredible covers (see, this is the downfall of iTunes and music downloading).
Created by M/M Paris, its just amazing. Most of Bjork's album covers are, but this is a personal favourite, Flawless.

_Firstly, The only way you'd get me near any form of construction - bring in Chanel cones.
Secondly, The only way you'd get me anywhere near playing such non interesting sports - replace the equipment with Chanel branded Equipment.
Finally, All the above images are boring, someone buy me the mirri-gold wallet?

_Invites to my 23rd Birthday in October last year, featuring an amazing illustration by artist Anna Higgie (Higgie blog to follow). the invites themselves arrived in mirrored chrome envelopes, with 8395 lazer cut into them (23years in days), if i remember i'll blog some images of the envelopes aswell. The night itself was an amazing cheese and wine night with 22 friends (I was on a 23 theme) with a dress code of 100%Grey - everyone looked ace, got massively drunk, and had loads of cheese induced dreams.

_Czech designer Maxim Velcovsky has redesigned the interior of a church in Eastern Bohemia, using customised design classics, rugs and chandeliers.
Working with designer Jakub Berdych under the Qubus Studio banner, the interior features Verner Panton chairs customised with a punched crucifix, Persian rugs and chandeliers of rough-cut crystal.
Very strange, but I genuinely think it works.

_The OFFI Mag Table by San Francisco based Eric Pfeiffer is one of my favorite examples of the simple, beautiful utility of bent ply. It has been suggested I use it as a side table between chairs, but it can also makes the perfect TV stand for the TV-less: when it’s time to watch a DVD flip the Mag on its side and set your Powerbook on top. The Mag’s shape allows it to hover over the coffee table, putting the laptop at the perfect height and distance for small-screen viewing from the sofa.
