Happy New Year!

I probably won't end up like him tonight, but I hope some of you do. Happy New Year to the lot of you.

Here's a few pics I found while trawling the interweb.

Jaclyn Swedberg on Twitter: Chirp

Playboy playmate Jaclyn Swedberg knows how to use her Twitter account. What's that they say about pictures speaking a thousand words?

Heritage Research spring summer 2012: for brighter days

Winter never really arrived but you can bet that the day you get a bit of this Heritage Research through the post from End will be the day we get 6' of snow.

All the same, it's shaping up to be a fine collection, and the day will come when it's just right to slip on that windcheater.

The Dark Knight Rises: A clue

I've been wondering when we would start getting clues as to the last in the Dark Knight trilogy of Batman films, and lo and behold, we have a trailer. And you know what? After all this waiting, I'm still none the wiser.

Lucy McLauchan: drawing on rubbish

Beat13 / Lucy McLauchlan "Tacit" from Beat13 on Vimeo.
We have some of Lucy's pieces at home and I was on the lookout for something new when I stumbled across this. Which has given me a great idea for some of the old shit I've got lying around at home.

Transformers Fall of Cybertron: clunk, click

This, as far as I can tell, is the trailer for a video game which is being released at the end of 2012, which means there's no sign of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or any other living person, or even, for that matter, earth.

Doesn't alter the fact that it's a good trailer though, and I love the soundtrack.

Aston Martin Cygnet: Little blighter

Let's make no bones about it - the Aston Martin Cygnet is nothing more than a rebadged Toyota IQ. If you look at the opening shot of this video you can even see the arse end of one that they have yet to start work on.

But Aston Martin is at pains to point out that this is an IQ which has essentially been pimped by them. It has been given the Aston paint job, grills, mean look and a badge.

When this was first announced, the word was that the Cygnet would be available only to current Aston Martin customers. I don't know if that policy has changed, but an ugly car will always be an ugly car, regardless of the badge it is wearing.

Wtaps B-3 sheepskin: shear warmth

You can't beat a shearling this winter but if you want something a little different to the brown and beige that you would normally get, take a look at WTaps' B-3. They've taken the classic B-3 and dipped in some indigo dye. It probably wasn't quite that simple, but you get the idea.

And in case I didn't show the M-51s they just released, or you missed them, I've added them down below.

Banksy: sign of the times

 So up pops another Banksy where you least expect it, expanding on the long-running vermin theme.

I can't be sure but that looks a bit like Spitalfields, or maybe Hoxton, and that there is a road sign just begging to be removed.

Let's see how long it stays up.

Uniform Experiment x Alpha N3-B parka: toasty

Now we're getting weather along the lines of what we should be getting at this time of year, thoughts turn to ever-warmer garments. The US military's N3B parka should do the trick in terms of keeping the chills out, especially with that hood trim, and with the Uniform Experiment treatment you get an added sartorial twist.

Girls Friday: Here's Rosie!

I think this Rosie Huntington-Whiteley shoot was in the UK GQ the other month, but now it's in the Russian one, which is as good a reason as any to feature it here.
