gold makes everything better

gold-pot

i’ve been saving this idea in the back of my internet memory bank for a while now, meaning to find a suitable bowl or pot that i can use it on, but in the meantime – you should do it too!

michael caine is a cool cad

i watched yes man a couple of days ago and the highly amusing new zealand actor rhys darby (of flight of the conchords) reminded me so much of michael caine, i think i mentioned it every time he was on screen. then i saw this awesome playboy pictorial featuring caine from back in the day, but beware – it has lots of boobs in it (nice boobs, though – much better than the fakies in playboy now a days)

alan aubry

i was searching for pics of Orania on flickr when i came across Alan Aubry‘s photography. he has an entire set of Orania photos, and another set of rad self portraits taken at various spots in the Cape. initially i assumed he was south african, but he is actually french. and again i am ashamed to think that a foreigner has seen more of SA than I have (specifically, Orania – a trip needs to be planned!). if you don’t know what Orania is all about, read up.

i don’t have a mac, but if i did…

It’s self-made. I found the artwork via google image search. She was part of the DVD-cover of Disneys Snow White. A litte Illustrator here and a little Photoshop there and then i finally printed it at my local copyshop on a adhesive foil.
