70’s interiors – when too much shag pile was never enough…

Ah, the 70’s. A mishmash of bright colours, textures and too much of everything. It’s kitsch overload and I love it.

For example – shag pile carpet. On it’s own, is great. But in the 70’s it was cool to stick it EVERYWHERE! I never understood why people would want to cover their bathrooms in it, seems so unsanitary.

Here are a few truly delightful shockers.

Baby poo brown – perfect for your loo!


So many choices!


No-one will notice when you vomit with sheer excitement on this shag pile! (They seem very happy)


Who needs I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, this is just like going to sleep in the jungle! Amaze.

A symphony of brown. And shag. Just be careful not to trip…


‘Flight Of The Conchords’ Videos To Guide You Through The Sea Of Love

All of the yes!



It’s been eight years since Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement’s New Zealand-bred act, Flight of the Conchords, stepped into the mainstream with the debut of their eponymous comedy series on HBO (which is available for streaming on HBO Now). The duo has only grown in notoriety during that time, despite the show’s short lifespan of just two seasons. Why? The cleverness of their material, the immortality bestowed upon their bite-sized musical comedy bits by YouTube, and the ever-relevant nature of their primary topics, love and sex.

Here now is a look at some of their best takes on matters of the heart and the sugar lumps

Getting Noticed: Sugar Lumps

In the show, Jemaine and Bret portrayed themselves as an unsuccessful band who couldn’t get laid and couldn’t get regular gigs. The truth is, however, that the two were low-level comedy sex symbols at the time, so it’s not surprising…

Oddly awesome Japanese thing of the day

Love this! Can’t decide if it’s cool or just a bit creepy though…


I love that the boffins at NASA are so obviously a bunch of geeks. The ‘dark spot’ on Pluto’s greatest moon has been named Mordor!!

Remarkable new details of Pluto's largest moon Charon are revealed in this image from our New Horizons spacecraft taken late on Tuesday from a distance of 289,000 miles (466,000 kilometers). A swath of cliffs and troughs stretches about 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) from left to right, suggesting widespread fracturing of Charon's crust, likely a result of internal processes. At upper right, along the moon's curving edge, is a canyon estimated to be 4 to 6 miles (7 to 9 kilometers) deep. Mission scientists are surprised by the apparent lack of craters on Charon. South of the moon's equator, at the bottom of this image, terrain is lit by the slanting rays of the sun, creating shadows that make it easier to distinguish topography. In Charon's north polar region, a dark marking nicknamed 'Mordor' is prominent in the image. Higher resolution images still to come are expected to shed more light on this enigmatic region. New Horizons traveled more than three billion miles over nine-and-a-half years to reach the Pluto system.
