Carousel — Week Ending 1st August 2008

Wow, it’s August already! How bizarre is that?!

This is another little Carousel — but I’m going for a quality over quantity thing here!

I love 5ives. Five more terrible fake reality TV shows, Five rejected names for “Cooter” on The Dukes of Hazzard, Five terrible fake astronomical pickup lines, Five “Web 2.0″ ways to break up with your boyfriend, Five rejected names for a single-serving meal product & Five things that should be issued to every American on his or her 14th birthday.

Bedposted is one of the most interesting things I’ve seen in a long time. It’s a web 2.0 application designed to give you insight into your sex life… Any takers?

“Simply log in after every time you have sex and fill out a few simple fields. Before long, you’ll have a rolling history of your sex life on which to reflect.”

Joy sent me this link to Yeondoo Jung’s photography where he recreated children’s illustrations. So dreamy & surreal, I love it!

A lovely piece from my future wife… Ask Nubby #9: Rocking your Style with Confidence!

I love this outfit on The Sartorialist. I know not everyone will agree, but I think it is 100% fabulous. The exceptionally high quality photograph doesn’t hurt either, though…

A collection of queen-themed photos. I like! Whee!

Alright sweet-pea; enjoy your weekend!
