Some pictures from Gourmet of Yesterday – a collection images taken from food archive reels, and one way British Pathe tries to encourage people to explore it’s online archive. I think it works brilliantly and see myself becoming addicted to this site pretty darn quickly.
Moving in 10 days (whoop) to an amazing 70′s retro-tastic live / work space which I am trying to design it at the moment. As a result I am discovering some amazing 70′s interiors I just had to share. Needless to say I am totally in love with the idea of a conversation pit!
Ah so this is where I have been going wrong – 74 years on I think it would still be wise to follow these tips (especially the clothes one).
Collecting 70′s cook books has become a bit of an obsession with me, fuelled by my adoration for retro food styling. In my local charity shop today I found this astonishing 70′s fondue & table top cookery book. Now I LOVE cheese but some of these recipes would make any sane person go bleargh and I wont be trying them anytime soon. If you are braver than me then please do tell me how your liver / scampi / anchovy fondue experimentation goes…
Bloody love this song – why not listen to it whilst you read about the cupcakes this song inspired!
We are going to be selling these “Flash, bang, wallop what a cupcake” at Will & Cake – Maiden are already selling them as badges and have kindly given us the images so we can make edible versions too.
Box sets can be ordered in advance (£15 for all 5) – please contact us via Facebook if you are interested as they are going to sell out very quickly!
This has to be the best collection of images ever, and a great piece of social history documentation. People submit images of themselves – from 1977-1985 – with Star Wars; this being a costume, a toy, their childhood drawings or even curtains. Here are some of the best. Hot tip is that the backgrounds are as interested as the photographs.
Another FRIDAY CLASSIC (via Nerdcore) – clearly the song & dance routines in the new Clinic video are based very heavily on this! OK so that is bullshit but these people are RAD!
Amazing synth design porn here – Australian designer Dan McPharlin creates these miniature retro synthesizer models from paper and cardboard. He also did the cover for Jean Jaques Perry and Luke Viberts collaborative LP (thanks @themonsterist) – you can buy it here.
Oh I really really want one! Check out the minature papaer synthesizer stream over on Flickr.
