Instagram Camera

There have been whispers of an Instagram camera for a while now. Looks like Polaroid may be bringing it to life, fingers crossed! I would definitely be interested in one of these wee bad boys.

Printing Clothes: The Future?

According to Joshua Harris and his Clothing Printer Concept, we’ll be cutting out retailers by 2050. No more horrid dressing room lighting with that curtain that just won’t quite close properly.

You can print any clothing you like, in any colour, then when you’ve finished you can reinsert it into the printer to break it down and use it all over again for a new garment. Sounds great!

Since my wardrobe is 99% grey and black, I’ve got a feeling I’ll save a fair bit of money!

Greyscale all the way!

Film Review: Drinking Buddies

At the weekend I watched Drinking Buddies, a film starting Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson and Anna Kendrick.

It was an ‘indie’ film.

As a general rule I don’t mind ‘indie’ films. However, calling a film ‘indie’ these days is no longer about a good movie making it against the odds. It’s now a blanket word that marketing departments attach to a film to excuse rambling dialogue and a vague plot. It’s meant to be seen as a quirky piece, but just comes across as unplanned and a bit shit.

I spent most of the film thinking things like “it would be amazing if the lead guy contracted tetanus and died right now”, or “maybe there will be a gas leak explosion and all the main characters will die”! Neither of those things happened.

In fact, nothing happened. Every now and again they drank unidentified beer out of plastic cups, but that’s about the extent of the excitement.

This was definitely a modern day ‘indie’ film. A boring, flatline plot with messy dialogue and characters I wouldn’t put out if they were on fire.

I want my 90 minutes back.

Baby Busking

Have you ever read something so completely unexpected that you sit silently staring at the screen? That just happened to me reading this news story from a few days ago: Woman gives birth outside Birmingham Primark.

Giving birth outside isn’t that shocking, and I’m not exactly surprised it happened near a Primark. It was the statement from an ‘eye witness’ that had me stunned.

“Everyone was crowding the woman and after about five minutes everyone was clapping,” she said. “Everyone was throwing money at her. She got about £300 to £400.”

Just… what? People were throwing money at a woman who just gave birth on a pavement? What?! It’s not like the pavement screamed sanitary in the first place. Let’s throw some well handled money in there!

And since when did flashing a placenta equate to busking?! Unless she strummed the opening bars to Wonderwall with it, there’s no reason to throw money at her. It’s all a bit bizarre.

The Perfect Etsy Gift

Looking for the perfect birthday gift for someone who’s into their ‘vintage finds’? Etsy has you covered with this, eh, rather interesting antique necklace:

It’s a beauty, yes? By beauty, I mean ‘creepy, creepy, creepy weird thing that would cause me to freak out knowing it was in or anywhere near my house’.

Just look at the detail. Look at it.

I’m not going to lie – I’m a little worried I’ve even looked at the pictures. That necklace is definitely the start of a real life horror movie.
