Interesting way to light up bed time

Brighton Fresh loves gadgets, multi-function gadgets are even better. So when i came across this dildo last night (hmmm maybe i should change the wording on that sentence!) I thought that it needed sharing. This bedsite lamp created by Italian designer Matteo Clibic gives inventors hope that not everything in this post- modern age, has already been done!

Cherchbi - Very British Accessories

For those of you in the know, Cherchbi is a relatively new accessories company coming direct from the UK. The leather bags are extremely well crafted and hard wearing. This is quality of the highest order and would look perfect carried around by that true English gentleman, topped off with a sharp suit and umbrella, well in my mind anyway. In reality these bags and other accessories are about timeless design and would compliment any outfit. This may be Cherchbi's first collection under his own identity but it comes after a long history of accessory design within the industry from Fenchurch to Nike. After mass producing products out in Asia for large commercial companies, Cherchbi had the urge to go against the trend of throw away fashion and create objects of timelessness, worth, function and reliability. All products are produced in the UK and utilise natural, sustainable and recyclable materials.

Glitch Music

Glitch is an electronic musical form in which imperfections, digital distortion and general matrix-style glitchyness are used to replace instruments to make up the beat or the rhythm of the music. The resulting sound is slightly awkward but when done well can create beautiful interestingly crafted tracks. Although the art form has been around for a while, in the last few years there have been some notably great albums dropping. Probably the leader of the new wave of Glitch or Glitch-Hop would have to be edIT from the Glitch Mob, His albums Crying Over pros for no Reason and Certified Air Raid Material are both landmark albums in the genre. But glitch is not just a musical form it has also become popular as an art form. It works by using 'interference' which breaks up the image, kind of like when your TV freezes, or your printer inks start running out, or you are stuck on a page which is half loaded. Sometimes its those unique beautiful imperfections in life that make things so perfect.

Two-Thousand-Ten or Twenty-Ten?

Retro Futuristic
Two-thousand X is just around the corner.“I have seen the future, and it’s very much like the present, only longer” Woody Allen. In this blog i wanted to show you the future as viewed from the past.

Aurthur C Clarke, the visionary, well known for his 2001 A Space Odyssey, which was beautifully adapted to the screen by Stanley Kubrick, was followed up in 1982 with Clarkes second book in the series 2010 A Space Odyssey Two. With the film adaptation following in 1984, unfortunately not directed by Kubrick. But we were still left with some great retro images of the future.

Moving on in a similar vein. Capcom who have notably been having gamers salivating in 2009 with the most anticipated releases to hit the shelves including Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5, hit us with their own vision of the future. Back in 1990 Capcom released Street Fighter 2010 for the NES, they could see exactly where the Street Fighter franchise would take them! Personally i love the whole pixelated computer graphics. For anyone who remembers the days when arcade machines such as Space Invaders and Donkey Kong made celebrities out of puberty stricken geeks, make sure you check out the genius documentary film 'Chasing Ghosts'

And to finish off my 2010 the retro years, did anyone actually catch Knight Rider 2010 back in the early 90's? I'm glad to say that i didnt but at least it leaves us with one good vision for 2010, no David Hasselhof!!

Discarded Technology

I found this Playstation in my local park which has made me want to do a piece on discarded technology. What happens to all those gadgets and all that high tech wizardry that no longer cuts it in todays fast paced world? If you have any interesting pics or articles relating to this, maybe you spotted a VHS-C palmcorder on your trip to the New Forest, or you have a Sega Mega-CD keeping your shed door open or possibly CD drinks coasters in your local pub. Please post your pics here and it might stop me having random thoughts about random electrical objects.

Travel Tees - Speaking without words

A pic of me with one of my new travel tshirts which you can buy here. If you have purchased one of my products, or you purchase one in the future, it would be great to get an upload of it being worn, preferably in a far more exotic location than my back garden ;-)
