“‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker! ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace!”
This giant sculpture of a distcintly dead parrot has been installed by UKTV channel Gold in London’s Potter’s Field Park to celebrate the upcoming TV broadcast of the Monty Python’s final performance of their “Monty Python Live (mostly)” farewell show. The 49-foot-long fiberglass version of the “Norwegian Blue” from Monty Python’s beloved “Dead Parrot Sketch" was created over a two month period by a team of three sculptors led by artist Iain Prendergast.
"If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the perch ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s off the twig! "
Mister Polly Parrot will soon be installed outside the 02 Arena where the performance of “Monty Python Live (mostly)” is set to take place on Sunday July 20th, 2014. So you’d better start preparing your silliest walk straight away.
'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!”
Fantastic, a stirring tribute.

When Darya first told me about her adventures on Tumblr, I ranted about how it was a 21st century Myspace for assholes who were too young to use the original Myspace. It still kinda is, but you guys have helped me find some great new things and get in touch with many of the people I am now working with. We wanted to give you a little something in return. Thank you, from the both of us.

If you happen to find yourself about six miles east of Seoul, South Korea, be on the lookout for this awesome roadside attraction. Called The Dreamy Camera, it’s a two-story building designed to look like a gigantic Rolleiflex Camera. It’s a fully-funtional coffee shop and camera museum. We don’t think this enormous walk-in camera takes photos, but we love the idea of simply standing inside, looking out the lens window and taking a photo from the perspective of the giant camera.
1850 : The Impulsoria
“The Impulsoria was a locomotive constructed in 1850 that was powered by horses on a treadmill following a design by Clemente Masserano. The locomotive undertook trials in London in 1850 and was exhibited at The Great Exhibition in 1851.”
