Phonogram is a brilliant six-part mini-series developed by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie and released by Image Comics in September ’06. With covers paying homage to some of the great britpop albums of the 90s ( Definitely Maybe, It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah, Suede, Elastica) , they’ve proven to be quite successful, with the first two issues selling out immediately (currently on their second printing). The premise of the story is as follows:
“PHONOGRAM traces the misadventures of Phonomancer David Kohl as he hunts for whoever is interfering with his old patron, the long-dead Goddess of Britpop, Britannia. If he fails, history itself will be rewritten – with him entirely out of it. ”
Wodcast.org is a “podcast project about the future of design.” In the first installment from The Lighthouse in Glasgow, Scotland, interviewer Neil McGuire has cornered Peter Saville for 18 minutes of grandiose statements about branding, marketing, adidas, Factory Records and his concerns about “people in their mid-life who are still fascinated by typefaces and layout.” Essential.
Giraffe Manor is located about 15 miles outside of Nairobi and sits on 140 acres of it’s own parkland on the lovely continent of Africa. What’s best about this english style manor built in 1932, is that giraffes and other wild animals roam the grounds freely. Almost a hotel/petting zoo, giraffes will join you for breakfast and once satiated will move on to bask in the African sun and bat their huge eyelashes at those big African flies. A small hotel, only 5 rooms, the human to giraffe ratio is about 2 to 1.

This is the worlds best ever autistic man with a amazing talent….
“Stephen Wiltshire was born in London to West Indian parents on 24th April, 1974. His mother, Geneva Wiltshire had come from St Lucia and his father, Colvin, from Barbados. Colvin was killed in a motorcycle accident when Stephen was three years of age. His sister, Annette, is two years older than her brother. He lives with his mother in West London.
As a child, Stephen was mute and did not relate to other human beings. Aged three, he was diagnosed as autistic. He had no language, uncontrolled tantrums and lived entirely in his own world.
At the age of five, Stephen was sent to Queensmill School in London, a school for children with special needs, where it was noticed that the only pastime he enjoyed was drawing. It soon became apparent he communicated with the world through the language of drawing; first animals, then London buses, and finally buildings. These drawings show a masterful perspective, a whimsical line and reveal a natural innate artistry.”
