With your misfit nuts & bolts

 You will find the screwdriver is missing

And the wrench departed without a word

Cast aside rusty nails and a few

Warped boards are all that remains

In the house of the Wee…

How quickly the house caved in

When the Hammer met the Saw




So INCREDIBLE. Les Machines de l’ile de Nantes are massive mechanical animals on exhibition in Nantes, France. Designed by François Delarozière and Pierre Oreficee, the fantastic creatures in the menagerie include an elephant, squid, Manta ray, and more.

Thanks to Dark Roasted Blend for leading me to this extraordinary event!



4 years ago in the summer I experienced an affinity with the Bee.

They followed me, they landed on my arms and legs, they tickled my face.

They were present, offering me affection from morning until late afternoon…for 3 days.

I have never been stung. I have always wondered if they were trying to say goodbye.

This memory will never leave me, but the silence left by their absence will echo throughout all eternity.

“now thats a name I’m gonna watch out for in the fashion scene. His award winning collection for ITS#5 design compeition just blew me away. The collection is inspired by a a story of a Hindu boy being killed by a group of football holigans in a racist attack. The show starts out with traditional streetwear styles and garments and slowly transforms into pieces fusing with images from Hindu mythology.”
