Today has been a mix of sun-snoozing and reading “a crime classic by the creator of The WireHomicide by David Simon.

So here’s the recent internetty goodies:
Upcoming music from the divine Patrick Wolf. From what I’ve heard, it’s as stunningly melodic as ever with an extra soupcon of hardedge. Love.

The coolest screensaver – spotted courtesy of Nubby Twiglet. Turns your monitor into a modernist clock.

Classic NZ music vids from the New Zealand Film Archive – Ready to Roll

Reasons to be glad NZ Christmas is in summer – holiday sweaters.

My book of the year online – Perfumes: the Guide

Cute onesies from Threadless – plus a nicely literary t.

TV t-shirts from the Holy Moly shop – especially The Wire ones. Where’s the Stringer Bell one?

Like this I Claudius referencing music vid “Direct Hit” by Art Brut

Reason #1 to buy an iPod – this old skool boombox from Rough Trade

I am going back to my old swatches – and helped me identify the ones I have:
Nadia Comaneci
Piero Fornasetti
And finally – some beautiful libraries.
