This has made my Sunday – hilarious piece about the Jellymongers Occult Jam, the one made with Princess Diana’s hair, had a full page 3 in today’s Express (nice to know they are a week behind my blog with them ‘being the first on news’ and all that). It’s worth a read – I have never been more proud of my friends. Read it here.
Best of all I have Lily & Violet staying with me all week (a friends awesome twins) as they are going to Jellymongers for work experience this week – here they are revising!
My lovely friends the Jellymongers are totally fucking awesome in general but have nailed it this time for me: I shall be buying my mother the jam with a hair from ‘Princess Diana’ in it for Christmas.
Since the dawn of time man has struggled to unlock the secrets of eternal life. Occult Jam is a small triumph over mortality. Base ingredients are preserved through their transformation into jam and enhanced with powerful artifacts. The Jellymongers Occult Jam launches at The Surreal House exhibition (more posts on that soon) at Barbican Art Gallery on 24th June. The jams include the best flavours EVER:
Milk Jam infused with a speck of Princess Diana’s hair
Absinthe and pineapple with sand from the Great Pyramids
Plum and Oak with wood from Nelson’s ship The Victory
Occult jam will be available to purchase from the Barbican Art Gallery Shop – BRING IT ON!!!!
Super cute pothole gardens from Pete Dungey – I spent last summer filling in holes in my road with jelly (as the local council were clowns) so I must try to dig some pictures out. I was ‘hoping’ for one deep enough for a trifle but alas it was never to be.
UPDATE: OMG I had forgotten about posting this ages ago – is there a more perfect accessory to the Cakehead photoshoot than a cherry ball gag. Hell no, this is amazing!!!
Have totally fallen for the SS10 collection from Piers Atkinson entitled Sex On The Brain – the ‘pearl’ splashed balaclava and veil are a particular unique touch, and OF COURSE the cherry ball gag (above) is particularly awesome!!!
Look 24 is really funny too – clearly channeling spunk-tivitis (come on we all know what I mean)!!! At this point might also be worth mentioning that Piers Atkinson also has a diffusion range at Topshop – but to be honest no way near as screwed up = no way near as good!
This is an awesome idea from Felt Mistress (who I am hopefully going to be working with very soon).
A friend asked her to make a tweed cover for a Stratocaster. They are in a bluegrass band and normally play a banjo but he also wanted to play his electric guitar occasionally… …feeling it was a bit too rock ‘n’ roll he asked for it to be made a bit more “geography teacher” = one Tweedocaster.
I don’t need to say anything – just check out the lions indifference when this poor little chap fell from his nest:
LOVE these geeks so much! The team at JESS3 have created a Black Oil Firefox Plugin, which coats BP’s online presence with a thick heaping of black, goey gobb – much how BP have coated our oceans and with oil.
We made this plugin turn any image tagged with BP to black and white, and then under the photo, it has oil drips. If you go to any official BP site, like their Twitter, it turns everything black and the text is a dark grey. Also, any text that says oil will have underline drips.

Few videos of The Futureheads live at Scala – such a happy making night. To be honest the best way to spend election night, like ever.
Universal has been hyping the upcoming ride, King Kong 360 3-D, by staging Kong’s footprints and destruction in real life locations around Los Angeles, including Dodger Stadium and the beach at the Santa Monica Pier (via Notcot).
