UK brother duo Disclosure, or Guy and Howard Lawrence as they are known individually, are one of my favourite acts to surface recently on the electronic music scene. First grabbing my attention back in 2012 with their killer tune Control, they’re back now with the release of their music video for White Noise, featuring AlunaGeorge. […]
Didn’t seem that long ago that we were talking about professional mourners in Taiwan. Now there’s also the UK-based Rent A Mourner, which promises to send ‘professional, discreet people… to increase visitor numbers or introduce new faces’ at your funeral.

British Sea Power’s new music video for their song Machinery Of Joy is everything I want right now as spring fever begins to hit where I live.

This is amazingly wonderful and bizarre jewelry by the multi-talented British artist, Miles Glyn, whom I met years ago in London while we were both still working in film. The pieces are only available online at the moment, so get on it and start wearing some unique fresh art around your neck.
Bridgman is a London-based luxury garden furniture supplier which came up with a great idea: why not build an actual piece of garden furniture? Literally. A garden that can be used as furniture sounds crazy, but they did it with this chair. It looks pretty good and can be used as a chair, although it’s […]

Every weekend on the Hackney Marshes in London, UK, hundreds of people participate in football matches as part of the Hackney and Leyton Sunday League. This mini-series is about the home-made thrown together referee attire, the individuality and personality to a bloke that’s always seen as the bad guy…maybe it is about that £30 for the 90 minutes […]

The Eden Project is essentially the largest greenhouse on the planet. Imagine a huge glass domed area that can hold the Tower of London inside. Cornwall’s monstrously huge RainForest enclosed environment, or Biome, was built on the remains of an exhausted china clay quarry. Today the bubble shaped structure is home to over 1 million […]
