i used to be subscribed to many a tumblr, but it was actually so overwhelming in terms of imagery imagery imagery that i stopped. i wanted to discover things i like more organically, rather than scrolling through page after page after page of pictures. that being said, i bookmarked quite a few pics of rad famous peeps during that time. sharing is caring.

fred: things i like right now

things i like right now by fred of toy robot / fiction fred

  1. 1 Million by Paco Rabanne – It’s the best.
  2. Fish Eye – I love this camera, it’s something I raise a toast to.
  3. The Gold watch – for the brave. It’s bling, but not 50-cent. It makes a strong statement and it’s making finally making a comeback after years of sitting on the bench. Get one. Or steal your father’s.
  4. Persol Eyewear, Sun collection - I want them all. Can’t wait for summer…
  5. Designer Track Pants – bring it.
  6. Steph Weiss – Delicate, smooth and creamy. Liquid velvet. This has been my number 1 beer for a while now. Think creamy vanilla.
  7. Plaid Tie – I need one. Not sure why, but I need one. Just a gut feeling.
  8. Weber Q300 – It’s the push button ignition, the stainless steel burners and the 100 square cm cooking area that seals it for me.
  9. Eternal Pursuit – A book published by Ogilvy & Mather about David Ogilvy’s philosophy applied to today’s advertising agency. Focuses on the 8 Habits of Highly Creative Communities. Published internally at Ogilvy & Mather and distributed internally. Unavailable elsewhere. It’s my golden pocketbook. Kinda like my advertising mini-bible. As you can see it is well-read.
  10. YUM YUM Characters – Toy designs have boomed over last few years and I haven’t seen a better crafted collection than this. I WANT them. I love their subtle character nuances. The video is damn funny too.
  11. Hipstamatic – I love this iPhone app right now. It’s vintage and it makes almost anything look stylish. It’s like having a designer in my pocket
  12. The Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2010 – This will be my next car. Not only am I currently driving one, but I’ve been a fan for as long as I can remember.
  13. Fleet Foxes – I am in love with this band. The “drunken Texas sun” shines on my every time I listen to them. It’s winter music, warms the heart. Top songs: Oliver James, White Winter Hymnal & Ragged Wood.
