Renault Twin'Z Concept Car - Is This The Next Twingo? | carbuzz.co.uk
LOVE: We were promised the future - flying cars, cities in the sky and intergalactic space travel.
When you see ‘average’ it feels like it holds us back and therefore whilst it doesn’t fly, this concept car from Renault fills me with excitement. It’s a concept, so it will probably never be realised quite in this form but if we get a car with an interior that’s anywhere near this minimal, and some sort of integrated wheel / tire solution I’d be happy. I mean, does this look hot or what?
LOVE: Amazing food yesterday at The Bildeston Crown for Mother’s Day. Apricot donuts FTW! – View on Path.
The new Foals album is totally working for me. Massive on a geological scale.
Totally love the look of these photos from Ward Roberts’ photography book of courts contained within apartment buildings. The book itself sounds a little niche to find a spot on my coffee table but I’m pretty sure I’d have been a fly ball player if only I could have learnt to play on one of these super-fly pastel courts.
Love: Shaky Pete’s Ginger Brew
From barnicklesbitchinblog - tried these at the Hawksmoor recently and they are the shit:
One of the best cocktails I have had in a very long time. So refreshing and delicious!
Served at the Hawksmoor, quite expensive, but worth it, and if you’re up for it you can make it yourself with the below recipe! (recipe to ginger syrup can be found in the article above!)
Enjoy and Happy 2013!
1.5 ounces homemade ginger syrup
1.5 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ounce good gin, such as Beefeater
3 ounces London Pride ale
Amazing click to control gifs. A few nights back I had a dream that I could turn into a wolf and I was skiing down a rainbow coloured snow mountain. Pretty epic.

Haim might just be my brand new favourite band. Love this!
What a coward Michael Gove is. So many in our government seem to be yes men with little ambition but to quarry favour. Few, bar Osbourne perhaps, are worse than Gove.
That a look at this open letter to Michael Gove from an English teacher on a dark day for Education.
Surely examinations should be fair and simply measure ability. Insofar as is possible, should a C grade one year (let alone one half a year) be much the same as a C the next?
LOVE: NSFW Corp
In case you hadn’t realised love a good rant me. I’ve also recently finished ex-Guardian journo / writer / tech startup wannabe Paul Carr’s latest book The Upgrade: A Cautionary of a Life WIthout Reservations. I enjoyed it. I laughed and I was actually sort of moved. I like Paul Carr - he’s a loveable rogue that I’m continuously torn between feeling sorry for and jealous of.
Conveniently these two things have just converged in a new news website called NSFW Corp, started by Carr and named after his old Guardian column, NSFW (because it wasn’t and neither was he).
So what is NSFW Corp? Basically a satirical news website - a lot of humour, a bit of opinion and a fair amount of bile. It’s actually behind a pay wall. I fucking hate paywalls.
Except when I don’t. I kind of respect NSFW’s paywall because:
- It’s so cheap ($3 a month) it basically served no purpose but to put off people who can’t read anyway.
- It hides a load of unique, interesting content. Paywalls around scarce content actually make a lot of sense - I have always said this.
The best thing about NSFW Corp is it feels like the start of something good. Something exciting. People have already likened it to Punch, Private Eye, The Onion (but with truth) and the starting of Rolling Stone. It’s all of these things and inevitably none. I just hope it doesn’t fuck up and close down.

*Just don’t call it a podcast. They don’t like it. I think it makes Paul Carr feel like a knob.
What’s with Rihanna? I, to a degree, get the need for pop music to flirt with promiscuity but Rihanna’s obsession with S&M and her obsession with sex and fetishism seems to be a little too desperate. Her music is also bobbins.
