New & MPfree: Shades – Hard Fall

Video: Alphabet Backwards – Elton John

Sick to death of the Royal Wedding? Here’s a few minutes of joyous indie pop to help replace the hours of tedium experienced today.

Style: Concept Camera – The WVIL

The award winning design team ‘Artefact’s’ have created one of the most exciting cameras I have seen in a long time. My friend Sam was talking about a concept camera that had detachable lenses, which could keep shooting once detached.  I’ve been searching the Internet for a while and now I have found it. The […]
