Doll-ald Rumsfeld

One of my main reasons for starting this site, aside from vainglory and having too much time at my disposal, was to have a repository for the various items I’ve made over the past few years. I tend to give away almost all of my pictures and handmade objects, so this is my opportunity to remind myself of things past.

Today’s Thing I made in early 2008. It was commissioned to appear in this, but I don’t think it made the final cut, so this is the official world debut of…

…the Donald Rumsfeld doll!

Remember him?

Here’s the doll sitting on a scale replica of what Donald Rumsfeld himself used to recline upon in the Pentagon.

noises on: AMT192 and the Big Show

The new series of Answer Me This! begins today, featuring royal towns, the Yellow Brick Road, and Jewish French Toast. It can be found here.

In other noisy news, Olly and I popped up on Steve Wright in the Afternoon yesterday, around the 1hr 38min mark. We speak of this week’s Blackberry outage, the Jeremy Clarkson satnav that has since been banned, and this boyband who seem to be less real than characters in computer games. Listen to them at your peril.
