I like the photos of London.

The 'robot meets lighthouse' clip is cute. It could be made into a stand-alone short.

The St Germain track makes me want to drive round town at night.

Are you thinking about buying the cave? :)

David

Much as I approve of cave ownership, it’s not much use as a secret lair. What with it being on eBay and all. And I can’t see anywhere to tether the Guild of Evil airship.

Temple Bar hasn't gone, it's just been moved. It's adjacent to St Pauls where it forms the entrance to Paternoster Square.

When I worked in Saudi, I noticed the lingerie shops. They were similar to what dirty bookshops used to be like in the 1980s. Solo men couldn't enter them though as they were deemed family space. (cf restaurants are divided into men only and family). I didn't know men worked in them though. I knew that woman were virtually unknown in the workforce but somehow I assumed that the small number of women would include those at lingerie outlets.

"Because physical contact between unmarried men and women in Saudi Arabia is forbidden under strict segregation laws, women can also not be properly measured for their underwear. Worse still, the kingdom's religious police forbid lingerie shops even to have fitting rooms. So if a customer wants to try an item on, she first has to pay for it, and then traipse to a public toilet to see if it fits."

The shops could always employ gay men. Oh wait…

St. Germain eez very nice.

It’s ideal for people who smoke Gitanes. Or whatever.

There’s a short version with a video:

For some reason I was drawn to the shot of Kim Jong-Il fondling gumballs.

It seemed oddly symbolic.

Steve in San Diego

Where would Supreme Leader encounter a tub of gumballs? It does not seem very N. Korean, and he doesn't get get out of the country much.

David

Steve,

Those are superior socialist gumballs, as manufactured by the Pyongyang Gum Factory, Thongil Street, Pyongyang. They are, clearly, a vast improvement on the evil capitalist gumballs that rot the teeth of Westeners.
