Cute video: Ultimate Dog Tease

It's Thursday. Not just any Thursday though. It's the Thursday after a generous sprinkling of bank holidays. Which means it's the longest Thursday EVER. Admit it, this week has seemed unreasonably long, right?


Let's make today a little more bearable, with a cute video of a dog talking.

Feel better now?

Video: Slow Loris and his tiny umbrella

Remember the first Slow Loris we shared with you last month? Now there's a follow up, with Slow Loris showing off his latest accessory. A teeny tiny umbrella.

I particularly enjoyed the moment where he/she impersonates Kung Fu Panda.

Video: Playable Angry Birds Cake.

Remember when your parents told you to stop playing with your food? It's rubbish. All the best food doubles up as a toy.

Case in point: The Playable Angry Birds Cake.

Coolest. Parents. Ever.

It's not the first Angry Birds cake around, but it's easily one of the best. And you can eat one of the smug little piggies once you've knocked them off the cake.

Are you an Angry Birds fan?

Friday funny: Slow Loris being tickled

Before this video, I'd never heard of a Slow Loris. Now, I literally cannot think of anything more awesome than owning one. I'm pretty sure the makers of Furby based their design on these little guys.

"One must lie to girls, or else they get mad."

Well, quite. Lie to girls or we'll get angry. That little boy is clever.

Confessions of a paper-based romantic


Anyone who spends any amount of time with me will know that there is a little space in my heart that will always be reserved for a good notebook.

Perhaps it is because I'm an old romantic at heart, or perhaps it's because me and Microsoft Word have a...strained relationship at best, but I've always found that I manage to put down all the stuff and nonsense I carry around in my head best when I have pen and paper to hand.

I'm not particularly fussy, either. I love the glittery spiral-bound notebook I bought at a car boot sale when I was twelve just as much as the fancy-pants Moleskine journal I cart around nowadays. And don't even get me started on typewriters. My Dad had to ban me from buying the things from junk shops and jumble sales when I was a Jack Kerouac-obsessed teenager because I kept messing up my bedroom carpet with the ink from the ribbons.

So, its not all that surprising that I've fallen in love with the rather wonderful blog Strikethru.

Paean to the Polaroid & its Austrian Saviour

Me and My cool CamAnyone who knows me will be familiar with the larger than average bags I carry around principally for the purposes of carrying a massively clunky plastic PINK polaroid camera.. It has been bashed, had whiskey spilt on it, facepaint dripped on it, and taken up obscene amounts of luggage space travelling to, amongst other less exotic destinations, Sydney, Melbourne, San Francisco, Philly, and New York. I've illustrated this entry with some of my favourite polasnaps of recent times. My room is also a shrine to these little world windows.

I have had a special place in my heart for the polaroid since I was first shown this pola1.jpglivejournal community, Postmarks, which centres around the exchange of artfully-taken polaroid pictures with cryptic descriptions, sent in the post across America between a couple - you don't find out their relationship but they get pretty deep - then lovingly scanned for the world to see.There is no dialogue on the blog apart from these images, which is perhaps what makes it so captivating.

Me on the Bus, NYE 2007In 2003 I bought the above camera, from eBay, of course, which came free with a pair of pink sunglasses that predated last summer's Ray Ban revival substantially. I lost those glasses but touch wood, as yet I've kept a hold of the pink beast. Of course we were all despondent not so long ago when it was announced that Polaroid would no longer be making film, I still managed to find the stuff in my local branch of Boots. How long would stocks last, though?

In the meantime, the Young Future People use apps like the rather cute although infuratingly mac only (mac only.. pfftshh) to 'polafy' their digital snaps. Cool, yes, but you can't stick those on your walls for shit!

Minus IQ plump for Kings of Neon

n635925188_1826784_6266.jpgMinus IQ are the latest band to be spotted with personalised trainers. It seems everyone nowadays wants to be a bit different and highlight their indiviuality by customising their clothes or products. We had a dig around here at Jack HQ and found a great way to jump onto the customising band wagon without getting your fingers stuck together with glue or having to find a fairy liquid bottle! Kings of Neon.
Kings of Neon can put any logo or design onto a vast array of different trainer designs including run of the mill plimsolls, DCs and vans straight through to Doc Martins! We were pretty excited about this and sent off to get some Jack ones done, we are now eagerly awaiting the results and will report back as soon as they arrive! Since finding the site we have also spotted them on a number of trend conscious journalists including Luke Blackall of the London Paper and Zoe Griffin of the Sunday Mirror!

Hello !


I m Lu. I ll be posting on Dollymix for the next few days. I am the editor of Who's Jack Magazine and one half of Raw Material ( the other half being Firgas Esack ).
Who's Jack is essentially a style magazine that looks at fashion, art, theatre, film, events, new clubs and restaurants, social comment and anything else going on in London that we think will of interest to our readers.

I can't wait to get blogging away and sharing with you all the great stuff that comes through to our eager ears and eyes on a daily basis.

Here is a little pick of bits that we have been loving so far this week.

- We got sent a great pair of customised trainers from Kings of Neonthese guys take almost any plimsolls and put whatever design you like on them. Perfect for personalized gifts

- This Vodka called Pinky is in the most beautiful bottle and should almost be left on your dressing table rather than in your drinks cabinet

- Fish Hoek, Pinotage Rose - a great pink treat for nights when white wine is too cold and red wine puts you to sleep

- Dangerous Dating - a great new dating site yet to launch but has been hotly tipped- hopefully more on this soon!

- Stuart Semple's collection of artist customized, limited edition T-shirts image001.jpg

That's all for now, over and out.
