Check out this years Round House Poetry Slam Winner

Our very PJ poetess Clarissa Pabi won it the year before, so it's only right to see what this years talent had on offer, and I think she's pretty good. I definitely agree though, it's hard being a girl who's funny.

So what did you do this weekend???...Ummm I slept lol

Yeah rediscovering my pillow felt bloody good however my bed got me thinking maybe i would have more interesting dreams, if I had more interesting beds, so with a little research, here are the most inspiring beds I found so far.

Viva la sleep.

Ohm Transformable Bed
Ohm is a bed that can be transformed into two individual beds or used as a bench

Geometric Bed
Ness faceted geometric bed by Jakob+MacFarlane.

The Embrace Lounge
Creative lounge by Lost Angeles based designer Tanya AguiƱiga

One of my personal favourites, seems so romantic to me Tree Bed
Creative $15,000 Tree bed by Shawn Lovell.

Sleeping Tube
Futuristic two metre “sleeping tube”.

and last but not least I thought this was really cute

Private Cloud Rocking Bed
The Private Cloud is a patented rocking bed by German designer Manuel Kloker

Imagine getting it on in that

Love the Janes

Vice Photo Exhibition 2009

I remember reading ages ago in a paper or something that although photography used to be considered a lesser form of art, it was most certainly coming into it's own as a respected form this decade and damn right it should be too.

So to celebrate the beauty that is photography, why not check out Vice Magazine's First Photography exhibition opening this thursday on the 13th August 2009 and running for two weeks, monday - friday 9am - 7pm at the Print Space in East London,

After the heat that gets created everytime they drop their annual photography edition of the mag, should be good to see what they've got lined up for their exhibition.

R.I.P Baatin from slum village...

This news broke my heart, he passed away on the 31st July.

Slum village have to be one of the greatest hip hop groups of all time.

Here's my favourite track by them. The lyrics in the last verse just articulated how real they were.
