present + correct

sometimes i wonder what it would be like if we could go back to school as our adult selves, without all the worries that plagued us as teenagers. man, we were idiots! oh you think you weren’t but you actually were, sorry to break it to you.

i would for one thing have had better stationery. no more space cases with shit drawn all over them. i would have been a proper person with rad stationery. these are by present + correct (also at etsy)

i realised after i’d written this post that space cases might already be irrelevant, or probably don’t make sense to anyone outside south africa. well, they were the pencil boxes to have in my day. i remember when i was 12 years old space cases suddenly hit the scene – people went bananas for them. and they were actually big enough to fit bananas in.

it’s fun in the sun

these images are part of john van noate‘s collection, a very interesting guy on flickr who posts entire stories within his photo sets. like this one, parts of which made me laugh. and this one which is about his time at woodstock.

this particular set  is part of ‘the florida sex stories’ – but you have to be listed as a friend of mr. van noate to read them. if you’re curious and he decides you’re not some kind of pervert, he’ll let you.

going on the pics alone i’d say it makes for some interesting reading. yes that is bettie page.

in my fantasies i have more than one house

may i introduce you to my new winter… and summer homes? they are in norway. at least i’m pretty sure they’re in norway, as the architect’s website is in norwegian (i’m guessing) and my google translate won’t activate.

my winter home is pretty rad because it has reindeer antlers on the pitch of the roof (i put them there)

my summer home is awesome because of all the windows, so i can let the light in until 10pm. or whenever it sets in norway. does the sun even set in norway in summer? i’ll soon find out.

you can come visit, i’ll try to find some scandanavian style pull out couches.
