must dash you know

this new heineken ad has reminded me of how much time i have for handlebar mustaches or les moustaches, which makes them sound sexier.

it got me thinking about the mustache parties we had at uni and of a couple of pieces of tash related design that make me smile:

wednesday driver


a great idea, beautifully made. i drove to a cemetery near oxford today and this captures the essence even without the colour (or the mercedes convertible).

thank moo

yesterday i received my 50 printed business cards from who were offering a great promotion where all you pay is the £2.50 postage. bargain. of course they wanted to write their name on them as well as mine.

i currently have a lot of time on my hands for mundane tasks and procrastinating so when my cards arrived i took straight to my cutting mat with my straight edge and scalpel and took the thin band off the bottom of each card (having forseen their game and planned my layout accordingly). i then made a collage with these strips in the shape of their logo, wrote the note "thank moo but i didn't need these bits, yours et cetera, em" and sent it back to them, with a thinner than your average business card of course.

unfortunately the scan looks better than the finished item as the little neil buchanan that lives on my right-hand shoulder told me to douse it in pva glue to cover up the little gluey bits. bugger.

dog person

what tolerant pooches. i can't wait to be in a position where i can have a dog, it just wouldn't be fair at the moment. my pet naming policy has always been to give them real names but names that you wouldn't call your children. i had monty and boris the hamsters and bertie and graham the guinea pigs. they were my boys.
