The Grates are a pretty cool Australian band (they do exist!) who have a new single out this month. Listen to Turn Me On at Hype Machine.
I really enjoyed reading this explanation of the mural painted next to Kilburn station. I had no idea that George Orwell and HG Wells are former Kilburn residents. Ian Dury is still my favourite local though! (via the fabulous West Hampstead Life)
For the 5th year in a row I will be away when Kilburn Festival is taking place. Think I'll have to send the boyfriend to investigate in my place. ( also via West Hampstead Life)
Maybe I am a sick freak, but I think this crochet anatomical heart pillow is totally cool.
I couldn't help but smile when I watched this adorable video of a little boy playing with an otter.
