The Year 12,020

It’s hanging on the wall and I can’t wait for year 12,020 to begin. 

I’ve wanted to get the Kurzgesagt calendar for the longest time, but they always sold out before I could grab one. Finally it is adorning our walls.

Looks like they have now sold out on the US store, but the calendars are still available on the EU store.

I’d be happy if they print the cover inverted next year, so while it’s waiting on the wall to be opened it will appear the right way up! 🧐 I mean, just look at it, the cover, with its lovely foiling is gorgeous, but it’s upside down. πŸ™ƒ

If you don’t know Kurzgesagt you’re missing out. Our friend Anthony put me onto their YouTube channel a few years ago and impatiently wait between their videos being released. They have covered topics from the space in between atoms, universal basic income, overpopulation, black holes and other space phenomena, consciousness, the ins and outs of the human body, time… I could go on, but hopefully you get the point that they have covered a lot of topics via their rather in-depth videos. Check out Kurzgesagt on YouTube.

I also have a couple of their posters waiting to be framed, I’m hoping if we ever get into our office they will be on our walls there.

Cardi Kills It

If you’re going to wear an outfit… wear it like Cardi B! #nextLevel

Cardi arrived at the divinely themed Gala in a gem-encrusted Moschino gown fit for a queen, showing off her baby bump in the process.

…

Made from tulle and silk organza and filled with down, the hand-embroidered dress is also decorated with 30,000 burned and dyed coque feathers. It took 35 people more than 2,000 hours to create, and it’s finished off with a bugle-bead headpiece that Browne made in collaboration with Stephen Jones.

I’m not sure how she sat down to dinner in that creation, but she sure did kill it on the red carpet of the Met Gala 2019.

Who gives a crap… I do!

A couple of years ago, for a work function we went to a restaurant in Melbourne that had a no waste policy. They bought all their produce without packaging, and everything in the place was recycled/reused. If you brought your own bottles in for BYO, you had to take your bottles away with you as they didn’t accept the waste.

Well in the bathroom there, they had toilet paper so good that more than a few folks commented on it upon making a visit to the loo. Strange conversation over a Christmas lunch, but that’s how good the stuff was.

The brand of toilet paper was “Who Give A Crap” and I have FINALLY gotten around to ordering some for home. This great organisation partners with charities that assist in bringing sanitation services to countries that don’t have it so good. And it’s not expensive for you to help out.

The answer to Who Gives A Crap is really, everyone… we all gotta do it, so why not help out a good cause while you’re at it. Better to wipe your bum with something that will give back rather than just adding to the coffers of another big business whose aim is usually to exploit those worse off every change they get.

Use the link below and get $10 off your first order. This is one case where it doesn’t cost much to do a good thing, in fact the price per 100 sheets is almost on par with the big names in the game. The more money Who Gives A Crap make, the more they can give away.

How Cool Is This?

The Nestrest is awesome. I want one. But I guess I really first need a nice big tree or something to hang it from. And probably a bucket load of cash to afford them.
