There is a time and a place. It wasn’t today.
(gespiegelt von London Leben)
Well, almost. Rest of the story is here.
Many years ago, I was in Il Fornaio, one of Palo Alto’s priciest restaurants, when there was the sound of smashing plates and shouting in the back of the dining room.
One of my favourite bands from the 70s has reformed: Penetration. And they have a new album out.
IP addresses of Bots trying to hack into my weblog. Every once a month there seems to be a surge. No, the username surely isn’t “admin” to get into my site. Idiots.
“Lives made much easier”
The Bishop I mean.
Anyone who knows me also knows that I’m a big fan of 1960’s television. I’ve always liked the typography of titles, the logotypes, the washed-out greyscale, the test screens.
Over the past few days I painstakingly recreated a few TV logos of 1960’s German television in Adobe Illustrator to use them as wallpapers on my iMac. So far there are 5 of them – I’m not sure if I can be bothered creating even more of those, because it’s a lot of work really. The Testbild almost drove me mad.
So, here’s a little present for you: all 5 wallpapers are here in one massive zip file to download. They come in various screens sizes and resolutions – 4:3 as well as widescreen and they’re all in jpg format.
The Cartoonist’s photos @Picfair. Buy and license. Apart from the rather cheap and unnecessary plug, Picfair is a fabulous stock photo website. In fact I think it’s the best stock photo site ever, set up by former Guardian journalist, Benj Lanyado.
Upload your pics. Choose your price. Change it whenever you want.
An open-to-all image market, controlled by you… if someone wants to use your pic… you get paid.
Keep all copyright, and get what you ask for. If your pic costs £5, that’s what you’ll receive.
It’s new, it’s fresh, it’s fantastic and I can only recommend it to anyone who thinks their photos are good enough to be worth a bob or two.
