This Steampunk Teapot was created by Richard Symons a London based artist. It’s available on Etsy for just over £80! It’s also pretty cool…

Thanks to @WantonItalics for sharing it on Twitter.

Richard seems to spcialise in sticking stuff to things to make them look Steampunk, there are some pretty cool masks on his Etsy page…

Underskin Body Map

Artist Sam Loman has created a lovely map of the human body in the style of the London Underground map. Okay it’s strictly not in the style of the London Underground Map because not all the lines are either horizontal, vertical or at 90 degrees, but it does have all the major organs as underground stations and the systems the connect them as train lines. Also it looks cool so we can forgive him. It would be interesting to see how it would turn out if he had to follow the design rules of the London Underground map though.

Dream Journal: Post Nuclear Apocalypse?

It seems I’ve been playing too much Fallout 3 and watching Avarinne play too much Fallout: New Vegas, I had two dreams in a row the past couple of nights about a nuclear apocalypse happening.

The first I don’t remember much about aside from the fact that East Kilbride had been hit by a Nuke and I was running away from the fallout. Society was breaking down and there was panic for food. It’s all a bit sketchy in that way that dreams fade if you don’t try write them down straight away.

The second last  night I dreamt that there had been an nuclear apocalypse 1,000 years ago and somehow I’d slept through it and just woken up. I was holed up with a group of people in a large library in a largely destroyed London and we were fighting to survive.

Apparently no one could read the “Old text” in the books in the library, of course being from 1,000 years in the past I could. So I started looking for books of maps to aid with my foraging.

There was a race of goblin like people that only came out at night, they apparently had a history of raiding the library while everyone was asleep and everyone was scared of them. At one point I caught on of them in the act and it turned out the reason they were raiding the library was because they were obsessed with Disney, and were stealing Disney picture  books. I apparently had my laptop with me and it had survived the 1,000 years I’d been asleep and had a collection of Disney movies on it. I offered to broker a peace treaty with the goblins by giving them copies of the Disney movies so that they could watch them.

I’ve decided I want to go to The Tate again having seen this The Tate have installed a huge set of slides and it looks amazing, thier website has a 3d thing which lets you look at it or you could look at some photo’s on this site which is where I found out about it initially.

Whats more amusing is the below image which shows that whoever set up theImmervision Pure player wasn’t sure what he was doing…
