Thank you,

...for linking here today and calling the Republic 'a fine weblog' :

In return, I think yours is pretty good also!

Here's more info:

things magazine was originally founded in 1994 by a group of writers and historians based at the Victoria & Albert Museum/Royal College of Art in the belief that objects can open up new ways of understanding the world.

Now an independent magazine, things has built a reputation as a home for new writing – essays, reviews, short stories and poems – about objects and their meanings. The website contains a weblog, photography galleries, special projects, searchable archives and the occasional on-line only article.

Our printing schedule used to be biannual, but now it's just occasional. This means you can't subscribe any more, but if you'd like to be notified of new issues, drop us a line and we'll keep you up to date.

To order back issues of the magazine (1 through to 17-18, the most recent), visit our archive page, click on 'add to basket' and our friends at PayPal will handle the rest...

I'll be back very soon with a longer blog update. I feel a rant coming on...

To keep you amused, the picture above comes from this website:

Bates Motel?  Big Dick's Halfway Inn?? Amigone Funeral Home???

Another thing... a fab animation in 3D of the National Railway Museum

...and one more thing, an UPDATE from me blog January 4th:

a feature on the Scottish Ballet HQ from Urban Realm:

And finally; don't know if this is things or stuff, but fantastic Jayne, to have your and Rupert's wedding featured on Queens of Vintage!  It was a wonderful day...  (see all four pages...)

I was shocked to see a photo of the Amigone Funeral Home on here- it's a small chain of family-owned funeral homes in and around Buffalo, New York (the area where I grew up). I've been laughing about that name since I was a child and it's quite funny to see it again on the internet.

I did wonder if they saw the funny side too...
