January Carboot Sale postponed one week

The Toejam January Carboot Sale has been postponed for one week, from January 16th to the new date of Saturday January 23rd.

This was in response to lots of emails we got about it.  People looking for a bit more breathing space after Christmas and of course people who’d prefer not to stand outside in -7.

So, we postponed it for one week to allow for a bit of a thaw and let people get geared back up after the December Crazee.

If you have already applied for the January 16th Carboot Sale then your grand, your application still stands.  If you havnt applied and would like to, then just go along here and follow the link to the application form.


Media whore

Happy Christmas to all Toejammers out there.  Here’s a little gift of a video of GBS launching a new plane back in the 30’s, dropping a few one liners and generally just being a media whore.

The Chinese…a great bunch of lads

Spose this is the official Toejam Christmas bash, a day late but nonetheless, a dame fine party if last year is anything to go by.  Tanked up revellers on the happiest day of the year, full of slow booze and leftover food.  Good times ahoy.

Fight fire with fire and use the internet to top yourself online.  That is, kill all your online Facebook/MySpace/LinkedIn etc profiles and go back to the simple life.

Yaay for the environment

Chevy unveils their new futuristic Volt car to the world.  A car powered with, wait for it…batteries.

This dance is so entirely irrelevant and almost mocking of the car (imagine you were the crew who worked on this project and this is how your bosses presented it) that you wonder whether they are subtly trying to undermime the car and its sales so they can go ‘told ya so’ and g back to the business of making 10L jet turbine SUV’s for real men (and mom).  Either that or they have stumbled on a viral masterpiece.
