Airportag makes pillows of luggage tags with IATA codes (the three-letter codes that the International Air Transport Association uses to represent different airports around the world).
Frankly I’m disappointed there isn’t one for HLZ or RAG.
No doubt at the time this didn’t seem ominous, but a letter from Big Brother now would be rather disquieting. This letter to a little girl announced her enrollment in New Idea magazine’s children’s club, and accompanied her first membership badge. They’re now held in the State Library of Victoria archives. Ida Browne received the letter in the late 1930s - George Orwell’s novel ‘1984’ with its portrayal of the sinister, all-seeing, state-controlled ‘Big Brother’ was first published in 1949. These days, any confluence between ‘New Idea’ and ‘Big Brother’ is likely to involve a preposterous and fatuous story about people you never want to hear of again as long as you live.
‘Divine’ by Sébastien Tellier
Frenchman Sebastien Tellier is about a month older than me. In May 2008 I was working in morning television in Wellington, whereas Monsieur Tellier was representing his country in Eurovision with the lush, loved-up and deliciously weird “Divine”. Possibly the only Eurovision song to involve helium being inhaled on stage. I want him to be my beardy French boyfriend.
‘P.I.M.P.’ by 50 Cent
I was reminiscing about 2003 which led me to this video. I laughed when Fiddy is seen at the beginning of the video caressing a ye olde iPod, but then I remembered that I got one of those very ones for my birthday that year and it was dope and liberating. It didn’t make me P.I.M.P, though. D.O.R.K. 4 lyf.
