PostSecret #

<rave>Every now and again in the existence of this earth there come a perfect synergy betwixt humanity and technology. PostSecret is such a form, a beautiful web-site (blog) where a human can anonymously “post” it's secrets for the world to see (very interesting reading). A simple idea that seems to get right to the inside of what it’s like to be human.

Created by bad-boy artist Frank Warren as an art project to begin with, he got such a response, he set up PostSecret. Not always a look into the dark side. some of them are very funny.

Here be the observer article.

I like the way it’s not a e-mail project and you have to send actual post-cards, makes it all the more human somehow. I sent:

Turkish #

I was eating a Turkish Delight sitting on the toilet, in the bathroom of my bed-sit, in the MARR on Camden Street in Camden Town in the Borough of Camden in London in the Thames Valley in the south of England in Great Britain in Europe in the Northern Hemisphere of the Earth in a Solar System of The Milky Way Galaxy in the Universe in... and I had a thought....... this is a silly place to eat a Turkish Delight.

brolly envy #

I’ve observed a new class system, BIG BROLLY, little brolly. I’ve found a few posh brolly’s in London. The one that does is the most is a nice blue and white “Peter Harris Ltd” one, it’s the Mercedes-Benz logo that do it. I really do see men’s eyes look down when they see it (*psss* it’s not even very good quality). You know what they say about Big brolly’s ---- little willy’s… LOL

Do I get it, course I do, When see a double wired, triple stitched, muti-spocked number… oooooh yeah!!

Do you know I love going brollying, all the fools off the streets, feeling nice and cosy under your brolly (better if it’s not to cold). Anyway got to go, it’s raining now, got to show them “who’s the man”. (:
