Stuff Office Cat's Diary – 13/08/12
Blinkbox gets HBO series
HBO has inked a deal with online movie service Blinkbox – making it the only place (for the time being) where you can download quality telly like Game of Thrones season two and Boardwalk Empire season two. Perfect for Office Cat, who is a feline of refined tastes (though he also likes to sneak in the odd episode of HBO's saucy vampire drama True Blood).
Stick a snake in your ear with Audio Art headphones
Want to look like you've got a snake sticking out of your head? Then these are the headphones for you. Quarkie's Audio Art in-ear headphones feature designs including the aforementioned serpent heads, rusting bolts and (Office Cat is particularly keen on these) cat's eyes. Of course, Office Cat rocks his Meowingtons cans when he's not listening to opera on his B&O system.
Office Cat went on a weekend excursion to Eastbourne's Airbourne air show to watch those magnificent men in their flying machines whizzing about above the seafront. Sadly, no F-14 Tomcats were in evidence.
Bling up your camera
If you think your camera's looking a little dowdy, artist Jay Tsujimura has the solution. He's come up with some ornamental additions for your snapper – in "premium floral" and "premium lizard" designs – that fit onto its hot shoe and soft release components (plus a special one designed for the Leica hot shoe). Completely redundant? Yes. But Office Cat wonders if camera bling could be the next big thing on the catwalk.
