Carousel — Week Ending 16th May 2008

Alice in Wonderland statue!

Shortest Carousel ever! Literally! May I attempt to placate you with a photo of myself sitting in Alice’s lap? (This statue is in Central Park & is a must-see if you’re ever in the city.)

Yummy pictures: Edita Vilkeviciute by Solve Sunsbo (dots & stripes & patterns with light!); Olga Sherer is beautiful (NSFW); a lovely cyborg-esque girl by Ruven Afanador; Karen Elson & Steven Meisel in a circus-themed shoot for Vogue Italia, & Clemence Poesy by Ellen Von Unwerth for Lula.

Oh do you know the Fifi Lapin, the Fifi Lapin, the Fifi Lapin? Oh do you know the Fifi Lapin, who lives on Drury Lane? (To be sung to the tune of Do You Know The Muffin Man, of course!) A bunny in the latest designer duds? Count me in!

Guy Kawasaki shares his favourite things from the Maker Faire in San Mateo.

Tina Su is fantastic. She recently left the United States for India, where she was trialing out Tim Ferriss’ “mini-retirement” idea. However, the reality was not all that she dreamed it would be. The Mini-Retirement Misconception is an absolute must-read for anyone who feels like all they want to do is travel! I promise!
