hey, it's been a while. i won't apologise for the absence again as it starts to get boring, but let it be known that this site isn't completely forgotten. at the moment i have too much other stuff to tinker with, hence the blog suffering, and won't be able to update that regularly. i'll be working on other things which i shall …

'nose art is a decorative painting or design on the fuselage of a military aircraft, usually located near the nose, and is a form of aircraft graffiti' - wikipediait's not difficult to understand why a pilot would choose, or feel the need, to apply nose art to his or her aircraft prior to entering a warzone. after being stripped of your …

i think i just found a good enough reason to enter a church. on the other hand, if you already think religious buildings are slightly creepy you may not agree. ladies and gentlemen: eglise saint-merri, paris... source yeah, that's the ceiling, and to say this is awesome is an understatement. i would love to know the reasoning behind a) the chairs attached to …

(put your trousers back on little fella. it's not what you think) i'm a big fan of ceilings and it never fails to amaze me how drastically they can change the appearance and atmosphere of a space yet at the same time be completely ignored by most of the room's occupants. it's incredible how some people live their lives looking either straight …

i've been to one cremation in my lifetime and i must admit: it was a boring affair. effective (everyone turned up, extreme heat engulfed the deceased), but boring (solemn faces, no dancing, no pyrotechnics). when i die, assuming i do, i want my loved ones to follow the lead of the balinese and ensure that the burning of my corpse results …

'tis time for another competition. the brief... i have a folder on my desktop called 'huh?'. it's full of photos (hundreds) i've come across over the years whilst surfing the intertubes, photos which all have two things in common - 1. they intrigue me beyond belief, and 2. i have no idea what the subject matter actually is. the reasons for me …

the as-300 carrying a hexagonal canopy raft. it's the world's largest thermal airship.  source approximately 37 million km▓ - or around ╝ of the world's land mass - is covered by natural forest, a habitat which is home to the majority of the planet's wildlife, so it's no surprise that scientists are eager to study as much of the planet's forest canopy …

in terms of size, sedan crater is merely a hair follicle in comparison to the enormous acne scars we call impact craters. however it's still a monster in its own right and is a reminder of the u.s. government's attempts back in the 60s to research the peaceful and constructive non-military use of nuclear explosives. as a result of 'operation plowshare', …

oh dear... source ahh, the beautiful game. you know you've got problems when you have to lock up spectators. i found the hideous photo above by chance whilst looking for pictures of a polish conveyor belt (trust me, it's interesting. you'll see) and decided to post it quickly to brighten up your friday. the cage can be found at the ground of znicz …

i was just putting together an archive page for deputydog (which is here by the way) when it came to my attention that back in april the site hit the 2 year milestone without fanfare. happy birthday. in fact, thinking about it, i missed the first anniversary aswell; i'm a terrible terrible father. it's been a sporadic pleasure building this site up and …

above: carl friedrickson's defiant 'nail house' in up [source] near the start of up (pixar's latest gold-plated effort) we come to learn that carl friedricksen's house, or the land beneath it more specifically, is in demand by hungry developers due to its location amongst a sea of half-built, multistorey building projects, a fact that seems to make him all the more reluctant …

tridges are - maybe unsurprisingly - a rare breed of bridge which are - again unsurprisingly after cleverly dissecting the name - notable by the presence of 3 spans rather than the usual 1. basically they're bridges which are Y-shaped instead of I-shaped and are usually found at confluences where 3 land masses need connecting (example one, the y-bridge in zanesville …

the other morning i walked out into our front garden to find various plastic bags, sweet wrappers and a cigarette packet strewn amongst the flower beds, either thrown from the pavement by a random lazy bastard or blown over the gate from the street by wind. needless to say it really really pissed me off to the point where i was …

i remember reading about the stadium featured in the video above a couple of years back, just after construction had begun. fast forward what seems like a week and whaddya know, it's finished. and stunning. practically every square inch of its dragonesque roof is covered by 8'844 solar panels, ready to supply the enormous record-breaking building with clean power. at the moment …

did everyone just have a weekend stolen from under their noses or am i the only victim? thieving bastards. what do the following pictures have in common? what? who said 'leg over'? incorrect. they've all been drawn using a ballpoint pen. you know, a biro. the one you have trouble writing with smudge-free. that's right, the pens that leak in pockets indiscriminately. i find …

just a quick post as i complete another more substantial one. i wanted to bring these residential high-rise buildings to your attention due to the initially horrific exterior paint job which for some reason, after the shock sinks in, gives them a certain amount of charm. the group of towers are located in paris, were built in 1977 and go by the …
