Richly deserved

Pallant House wins Gulbenkian Award. I’ve long admired Pallant House, but the extension is truly splendid and makes it one of the finest galleries I know anywhere. Well worth visiting if you’re in the area.

Wallpaper* 100

Happy 100th issue to Wallpaper* magazine! The new issue flopped onto our doormat this morning and, once read, will be added to the not-quite-like-the-picture-on-the-cover-because-they-are-mostly-in-boxes-in-the-attic pile of back issues that I possess. My collection is sadly incomplete – I’ve every issue from number 9 onwards (including all the recent limited-edition-cover issues) and just about anyone could become my friend (at least until next week) if they were to assist me in obtaining issues 1 to 8 (and it’s my birthday on Saturday, so it would make a great present. Of course, if you’re struggling for present ideas, then there is always my very handy Amazon wishlist, which can be found by going here. Alternatively, just send beer. And cash.).

I told you I’d shoot, but you didn’t believe me

Happy Happy Joy Joy by Stinky Whizzle-Teats (video).

Found via John Kricfalusi’s blog, which includes an interesting look at how the cartoon that featured this song, Stimpy’s Invention, came to be made. I’d like a Cheese O’Phone for my birthday, please.
