    @phl "Every computer chip cycle counts" on this four year journey…

    'Supercar Superbuild': They only have four years to make an iteration of the Ford Mustang!! The car industry is weird.

    @phl I am tempted by that…

    @phl This is EVEN MORE DRAMATIC!

    The archive ('60s?) doc clips are quite refreshing: somber, patrician tones rather than jaunty music and over-EMPHASISED manufactured DRAMA.

    Watching C4 doc about making new Jaguar E-types. I'd never have guessed there would be a make-or-break near-crisis every 15 minutes!

    @tominsam @whoisdanw I thought you meant you’re surrounded by international treaties and I wondered what exciting thing you were working on.

    @benburry I couldn’t possibly comment.

    @dracos Nope. I probably used to when I actually did sketches in them. Now they’re more like scrapbooks, which makes me a bit sad.

    @russelldavies They probably had a little man for that.

    @tomcoates Yeah. Also things like Guy Fawkes & April Fools which obviously aren’t holidays… but at least most people pay attention to those.

    I’ve kept every cinema and gig ticket from the past 25 years and stuck them in sketchbooks that now have few sketches stop staring at me.

    Why does Apple’s “UK Holidays” calendar have an entry for Trooping the Colours?

    @blech @iamdanw I had to google and now I assume Dan uses hair straighteners.
