Oh how I love it when an unexpected package arrives. And when it's got a Pentagram address in the corner the pulse rate quickens. I feel very privileged. Signs is the 39th edition of the Pentagram Papers, this time conceived and designed by DJ Stout. You can read all about it on the Pentablog.
If you didn't know already, David's going to walk about a bit for charity. And all you need
to do is pop over here and make a small donation. I mean, he's doing all the hard work,
you don't even have to leave your seat.
OK, so there appears to have been a technical problem over on David's donation mechanism so if you've already tried - of course you have! - and been unsuccessful, please try again. Actually, try right now - I've just been over there to check and it seems to be fixed now but if it still doesn't work, don't give up. You can guarantee David won't be giving, he's got 20km to do and all the blisters and arse chaffing that goes with that. Put it in your diary, "Must give lots of money to David" and mark it as "Most extremely urgent".

Self-proclaimed anti-homogenists, The Bureau is Belfast's finest purveyor of gentleman's apparel. It's a splendid place selling attire well out of my humble pocket but doubtless worth every penny. No 44 Wellington Street is the little shop next door that they'd had lovingly restored from a sad and shabby news agent back to it's beautiful former glory - a 1920's tobacconists. Now, the lease is up and they're not keeping it on. Check out more pics on their blog.
