Post Boxing Day


Today has been a mix of sun-snoozing and reading "a crime classic by the creator of The Wire" Homicide by David Simon.

So here's the recent internetty goodies:
Upcoming music from the divine Patrick Wolf. From what I've heard, it's as stunningly melodic as ever with an extra soupcon of hardedge. Love.

The coolest screensaver - spotted courtesy of Nubby Twiglet. Turns your monitor into a modernist clock.

Classic NZ music vids from the New Zealand Film Archive - Ready to Roll

Reasons to be glad NZ Christmas is in summer - holiday sweaters.

My book of the year online - Perfumes: the Guide

Cute onesies from Threadless - plus a nicely literary t.

TV t-shirts from the Holy Moly shop - especially The Wire ones. Where's the Stringer Bell one?

Like this I Claudius referencing music vid "Direct Hit" by Art Brut


Reason #1 to buy an iPod - this old skool boombox from Rough Trade

I am going back to my old swatches - and squiggly.com helped me identify the ones I have:
Che
Nadia Comaneci
Piero Fornasetti
And finally - some beautiful libraries.

So... how's the David Simon book anyway?

Brilliant and as bittersweet as you'd expect with the subject matter. One of the cases left unsolved is the murder of a young girl and the amount of effort and emotion poured into the case by one of the detectives is the core of the book really.

I was really surprised to find that the names of the people involved were their real names too.

Thank you - the very testimonial I needed to include this in my Amazon wishlist.

I'm off to save money now.
