Marmalade the Cat Demonstrates Why It’s So Difficult to Enjoy a Meal With a Begging Feline Around

Whatever you have I want some!

With that in mind, Chris thoughtfully provided a list of which human foods are not good for cats.


SwimFin, A Shark Fin-Shaped Swimming Aid for Kids

swimfin boy and pool

The SwimFin is a swimming aid that straps onto a child’s back to provide buoyancy and encouragement. Its shark fin shape not only looks cool, but also allows for a full range of arm movement so little swimmers can practice all kinds of strokes unimpeded. SwimFin is available in seven different colors and can be purchased at their website.

It should be worn high on the back, above the centre of gravity. This way it will ‘suspend’ the child in the water – it will not tip a child forward if worn correctly, as can be seen in the photos. A SwimFin should never be used with a baby that cannot control their body yet, and it must NEVER be worn on the front of the body.

The Grand Jellyfish Chandeliers and Other Aquatic Light Sculptures of the 2015 Vivid Sydney Lights Festival


Vivid Sydney, an annual spectacular of lights and music, recently released photos from a sneak peak into the festival, including the wonderfully grand “Jellyfish Chandeliers” created by Ample Projects at the Chatswood Mall. Also adding to the wonderful underwater theme are beautiful cuttlefish lights that change colors and a projection of a school of fish onto the floor.

Stepping off the train at Chatswood Interchange, you’ll enter an evocative underwater fantasy with floating water creatures and pulsing colours. From here, Chatswood Mall becomes an immersive, light-filled ‘river’ where glowing creatures are brought to life with lighting (by 32 Hundred Lighting), and projections. LED technology will create cascading waves of colour before an animated aquarium appears in front of you. Further along, at The Concourse – Chatswood’s cultural centre – an environmental fantasy titled The Nautilus and the Sea (by Ample Projects and TDC)reveals itself across the sails of the building.

The event takes place May 22 through June 8, 2015 with different light projects and events taking place all over Sydney.

Artist Paints the Deck of a Roosevelt Island Pool in a Beautiful Array of Colors Reminiscent of the Setting Sun

Design firms K&Co and Pliskin Architecture recently commissioned yarn artist Hot Tea (previously) to put his talents towards a pop-up pool installation and renovation for Manhattan Park, an apartment development on Roosevelt Island. Calling the project Asylum, the artist used a beautiful array of bright paint around the deck of the pool in colors that are reminiscent of the setting summer sun. Hot Tea spoke with Brooklyn Street Art about his process for this project.

This piece is inspired by my color field installations that take up both private and public spaces. I love introducing color to spaces that seem neglected or forgotten. …I entitled this piece “Asylum” because the act of creating it pushed my mental and physical endurance so far that I wasn’t sure I could complete the task. When people experience my installations I hope that they will remember the experience far after the moment is gone. My goal for people who are viewing my work is to evoke subconscious feelings one may have forgotten.
