wouldn’t it be nice

nice postcards are nice

There is just so much negativity all around us these days, have you noticed? It’s infesting the internet, it’s taking over the big screen, it’s cutting you off, it’s showing up on your bank statement, it’s staining your new shirt, it’s breathing down your neck, it’s not giving you a vacation, it’s talking behind your back, it’s stuffing you in a locker, it’s cheating on you, it’s charging you more, it’s giving you less, and it’s making you miserable! It’s making us miserable! I don’t think I know of a single person who couldn’t use some encouragement, so here it is!

i would love to receive one of these in the post. or anything in the post, really. found here (hey, you can buy them! they ship to RSA! and if you don’t live in south africa and you can buy stuff online all the time anyway, then screw you! in a positive way.)

hello, lovely clothes.

it could be because of the stifling heat that i am longing for winter, but it’s also the clothes.

my childhood was basically made up of enid blyton and roald dahl. the BFG, matilda, twits, witches… then i found two collections of his adult short stories (switch bitch and kiss kiss – exactly like in the pic above) in the bookcase at home and read them over and over again, until the pages started falling out. i thought the psychedelic sex scene at the end of ‘bitch’ was especially amusing. if you find them, buy them! ps: how great are penguin & pelican book covers? my illustration lecturer used to cream his pants over them.

take 100’s of pictures of one thing, and you have a book

this dude took hundreds of pics of doorbells in florence, and now it’s going to be a book. PRETTAY cool. so, i guess, go to some rad euro city (or any other place!) and start taking pictures, folks.
