Congratulations to the Xx for winning the Mercury Music awards, an album that sounds new but reminds us of early 80s shoe-gazing Brit electronica. However, this is our favourite track so far from 2010 an epic triumph that whirls and climbs and insists... The Foals.

jónsi tour trailer from Jónsi on Vimeo.
We stood on the floor of Brighton Dome and were swept up in the euphoric tornado of music and imagery. Our great friends brought along their 4 month old son, Nova. He seemed to love it all as well, despite his big green ear muffs. Thanks for babysitting Rosie we know you had your hands full! And Paul (the greatest as yet unknown author) would like to apologise to the man he had a wee next to in the toilets, but the trough-type sink did look like a urinal! A truly exceptional evening. Thanks to all our friends for putting it together. Do not miss this tour...

"eBay just launched a new set of reusable boxes as part of a pilot program to make shipping a little greener. Starting in October, the company is giving away 100,000 shipping boxes to eBay sellers, and encouraging reuse. According to eBay, if each box gets used five times, the program could protect nearly 4,000 trees, save 2.4 million gallons of water, and conserve enough electricity to power 49 homes for a year."
"Designed by San Francisco-based Office, the boxes engage sellers by emphasizing potential benefits to the planet with friendly illustrations and copy. Tips for greener packing include finding "a new calling for old phone books." A happy little bird asks, "Where to next?" And to track each box's journey, there's space to write a note so the next person to receive it can see just how far its come.
Each eBay Box is made with 100 percent recycled content, printed with water-based inks, and designed to require minimal tape. And once it reaches the end of its useful shipping life, it's fully recyclable. From the box's fine print: "Don't worry, it will come back as something nice, like a birthday card or movie theater popcorn bag."

Day Birger et Mikkelsen beautifully captures the spirit of the stark Danish winter. The images are bathed in the bright nordic-silver winter sun that makes you want to light some candles, draw the fire and get cosy. A fantastic range of clothing as well
