Once again, I found myself perusing ffffound. I can't begin to imagine how much inspiration* I've got from that site (*stealing ideas)... Now, until recently, I've never really been that into motorbikes. I know nothing about them, and always assumed they were uncomfortable, windy death traps... A few years ago I had a change of heart, and I fell in love with the Vespa. (I'd like a red one please). Anyone could look cool on one of these, even without a greasey pony tail and unbottoned shirt.

Then I wanted a Black Bomber. I can't remember where I first saw one, but I wanted it immediately. They look so sturdy and almost compact. No silly bits of body work hanging off, or rediculous handle bars two feet above your eyebrows.

Anyway, back to ffffound. Was just looking through, and came across this! Dear god, that's sexy.

Check out the designers website, it's not what I was expecting.

Was killing some time in the ol library the other day, flicking through some design magazines. Found something I definitely need more of in my life - t-shirts covered in Helvetica! This one is pretty quirky.

Really cool idea. People seem to be going nuts at the moment over what's in their food. Nutrients, fat, salt, is it organic, how many e-numbers. All that nonsense. Do you think all those health freaks know there's a certain amount of Arsenic inside their little pedantic bodies??? I didn't. Buy yours here. Only twenty quid I think. Bargain. More from the same designer here.

Running with that theme. I was recently in Iceland (very cool place), and wanted a souvenir.

It says 'I don't speak Icelandic'. It's one of the few places I've been where people don't automatically assume you're a tourist and speak to you in English. Mine's in red!
