Flat or gloss? This is the dilemma I face, should I leave it in base coat or put some gloss on it. It's a very dark metallic silver and I had intended to leave it flat but now I'm second guessing myself for resale reasons, however that's just making more work for myself. What do you think?
Here's something for 002 to fuel his wax cotton canvas fettish, Wheelmen & Company have just revealed images of their soon-to-be released Minute man bag. Looks well detailed with padding, leather badges and taped zips. Add it to my ever growing wish list of bags. via Candy Cranks

[yeah, yeah, I hear you asking: "why on earth are you watching that rubbish anyway?" I'm sick, give a guy a break]
My good mate is a fantastic writer but happens to be publicity shy so she shall remain nameless for now. She wrote this, and for some reason I decided it deserved to be formatted [Sorry I messed with your structure].
The last thing I need is another source of procrastination, but of course I'm continually finding more. Here's one of the most recent additions to my reading list: The Whoa: Photography, girls, bikes, and above all, randomness of the highest calibre. I've always loved that song, and like most, I too have always been perplexed by the rabbit in the hat with the bat. One for the fellow grammar nerds
