After the success of the Unicycle auction last week, which raised £70 for the Haiti disaster, Emma has brought in a banjo which she has had cluttering her loft for a while.

It is surplus to requirements, so Emma thought she might as well let us auction it off as well. Again all proceeds will go to Haiti.

This is a brand new, never used banjo, and it's quite a good one. Bidding starts at £100.

Here are some more details (if you want any other photos or details, let us know)-

Stagg 5-string Bluegrass deluxe banjo.

  • 5-string Bluegrass Banjo Deluxe w/ metal pot
  • Resonator: Mahogany
  • Pot: all-cast metal alloy
  • Bracket hooks: 30 (flat type)
  • Top head: 11" REMO(tm) White Coated
  • Bridge: 5-string Maple + Ebony
  • Tailpiece: Nickel-plated Brass
  • Machine heads: 4 x Open-gear on headstock + High Gear ratio 5th peg on neck, w/ pearloid knobs
  • Armrest: nickel-plated Brass
  • Neck: Nato set neck, 660 mm (26 in.)
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood, 22 frets
  • Position markers: Pearloid "clover" inlays
  • Resonator & Neck binding: Ivoroid cream
  • Finish: Highgloss.

Someone out there must want this! If not you, maybe you know someone?

Let bidding commence!

I just found the Running from Camera blog

The rules are simple... set your camera timer to 2 seconds then get as far away from it as you can.

Watching the skate video Jeff just posted up, reminded me of a skateboarding video from Element- this.is.my.element

Nyjah Huston


The soundtrack was an awesome collaboration with musician Odd Nosdam.  He made each track after watching the video, making music to accompany each skater's riding style.

Enjoy :)

Our good friend Fredrik Götesson who we spent much of our time with in Sweden last spring just released this sweet edit of his summer.

Super Nice.

San Zhi and a Green man

Sanzhi is the location of an abandoned vacation resort on the northern coast of Taiwan. It was built in early 1981, but construction of the futuristic resort ceased after a series of fatal accidents.

Even though it never opened as a vacation resort, the UFO houses can still be toured. The strange pod-like buildings act as a tourist attraction.

On a more christmas type of tip i could not resist this pic. Total commitment from the green man. I need a hat like that.

howies "out of focus" photo comp

  • Posted by tim
  • 5 January 2010

If you are into film photography and handy with a shooter then we are running a photo comp and gallery exhibition in conjunction with a series of ads in the legendary DIG magazine. The idea is simple, we have six ads coming out on the back cover of DIG this year. Our favorite photographers are providing the first five shots and  the photograph we use for the final ad will be chosen from submissions that are sent to us throughout the year. Our favorite shots, along with all our ads will be exhibited at our Carnaby Street store and also in our Bristol shop at the end of the competition.  If you are a photographer who would like to get your work seen please send us any out of focus bike riding pics you have and we'll let you know if your soul stealer has been chosen to be our last ad. Dont worry if not though, you could end up in the gallery and we'll be having some runner up prizes too. Please send hi res scanned versions of your pics to jon at howies dot co dot uk.

The closing date for the comp is June the 21st.

Good Luck
