Gotta love Unicode

Love this decodeunicode video on Vimeo. Basically it's all the Unicode characters, at a rate of some per second, and it's transfixing. And two and a half hours long. Nice soundtrack too if you like minimalist electronica (and I do).


Now that’s Crème Brûlée ice cream

You may recall my utter disgruntlement with Carte D’Or Crème Brûlée ice cream recently (I described it as “basically just foam”). But now, hot on its heels comes Häagen-Dazs’ version, from their Secret Sensations range (name: 0/10).



Yum. It’s suitably creamy and ... mm ... ooh, nice crunchy “crème-brûlée-caramelised-top” bits, and there are pools of gooey melty caramelly sugary stuff, and, well, you get the picture. That’s how you do Crème Brûlée ice cream, people.
