Week 15: Viva Las Vegas Baby!

We weren’t intending on visiting Vegas on our America Unplugged road trip. Our intention on  this trip is to go beyond the main tourist destinations that everyone knows, and strangely, wants to visit. But, since we were close by, and our Australian readers insist on incorporating Vegas into their travel plans, we decided why not? I wasn’t expecting to have a great time – I mean how long can you spend looking at casinos before you get bored? But, I arrived intending to have a great time and see V...

Huge, Hello Kitty-related urban art

Due to its very nature, urban art isn’t destined to last. Demolition, wilful damage or simply time all too often eradicate what once entertained. A few of my favourite pieces in Tokyo were this tiny Audrey Hepburn stencil, and these kimono and seppuku inspired works. All of which are now sadly long gone. That said, the odd one or two do manage to survive. Astro Boy continues to blast off in Shibuya, and this huge, Hello Kitty-related street painting remains intact to resolutely stare back. ...

When Ignorance Is Not Bliss (Annals of Automobilia) (OT)

This is off topic, but it's funny. Consider: The base model of Land Rover's top-of-the-line Range Rover SUV costs $89,500. The base model of Toyota's RAV4 SUV costs $24,500. However, the RAV4 comes standard with far more features than the 3.6X more expensive Range Rover. To get the features of the Range Rover up to the standard of a RAV4, you have to spend half the price of a base RAV4 just on options. So just to spell this out, after already spending ninety grand on a car, people who buy Range ...

How Birmingham fans are hailing Paul Mitchell after Aston Villa

Birmingham vs Aston Villa Today is a week since the appalling scenes during the Birmingham vs Aston Villa derby. Lats Sunday a Birmingham City supporter shamed his club in a cowardly assault on Jack Grealish. As Grealish’s back was turned, the Birmingham supporter ran onto the St Andrews pitch to whack the Villa star around the head with a cheap shot from behind. Some Birmingham fans cheered and applauded the assault during the second city derby. To Grealish’s credit, he didn’t react to the pun...

Instagram has avoided Facebook's trust problem, beating its parent as app of choice for Generation Z

In the twelve months since the Cambridge Analytica scandal broke in March 2018, Facebook has experienced some major upheavals. According to a survey commissioned by Business Insider the social network has lost favour with users aged 18-25, who prefer Instagram. Some cited privacy concerns as a reason, but for the many the platform has simply become boring. Luckily for Facebook, it owns Instagram.   Exactly a year ago, the news broke that Facebook had enabled the mass, possibly illegal, collec...
