Last Cat On Mars Presents: Your Mobile Psycatrist #3 – You Need Special Specs to see this Spectre

Whether you see them or not, they may be there. Whether you believe or not, it doesn’t matter.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: The Help Desk Chronicles – Have You Tried Self-Help?

Imagine how many millions, perhaps billions, of self-help texts there must be in the world. No, do not do that, you will become extremely depressed and need a self-help text to help you, which it won’t, obviously. I mean, look at the state of the world.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: Shelves and Colours for Everyone

Ettore Sottsass was a very interesting designer who made a lot of unusual stuff, including this wacky item, yes, wacky, that’s a word in the English language, unfortunately. This wacky bookcase/divider/dresser, the Carlton, as it is known, is one of Ettore’s creations. What a lovely scratching post it offers to the discerning ‘hyper-carnivore’ (to quote Abigail Tucker, that writer of wonderful books about cats) that is the mid-century modernista feline.

Last Cat On Mars Presents: The Help Desk Chronicles – Holidays Can Be Helpful, Too

You don’t need the Help Desk to tell you a break is a good thing, right? Or, maybe you do, in which case, break now and enjoy a fine whine, or perhaps simply a little whinge to your friends before you clock back on.

At the Help Desk, they're on holidays and you'll be on hold for 3 weeks until they come back.
