Guy left Kilkenny (Coon) for Britain when he was 18, worked as a trapeze artist then as a stand-in in movies and TV shows (met Kevin Costner and Richard Burton and was a detective in Minder). He’s a collector of military memorabilia and admires Hitler’s army (among others).



More as we get it.

The music video for Never Again by Australian musician Tommy Spender, who sez:

I made this film clip with a great photographer friend of mine and it took two takes. That means I had to eat TWO CAKES. I ended up eating so much confetti and glitter that I had a glittery poo the next day. But it was all worth it as backwards eating really can end up looking quite beautiful. Thankfully the clip was not about the glittery poo.


Two ice cream cakes created by London designers Doshi Levien for Häagen-Dazs.

Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien say they were inspired by Georges Méliès’ 1902 silent film Le Voyage dans la Lune, Armenian surrealist Léon Tutundjian’s relief work of 1929, a childhood Bollywood song and the near-spherical shapes of early ice cream bombes. The white moon consists of a pistachio biscuit base, layers of macadamia nut ice cream and meringue and a coating of raspberry ice cream. The orange moon has crunchy chocolate at the bottom, layers of nutty ice cream and salted caramel and a coating of vanilla ice cream.
