The Mankey Monkey Generalissimo and his Wag wife come into the "Studio" and they did the impossible they made Ian and I speechless. They also appear to have thrown a big banana at my recording equipment. David and Eirin Hallangen Lake have started this campaign to raise money for the Imagine appeal at Alder Hey Childrens Hospital - and good luck to them and their alter ego's - mad though they are. www.mankeymonkey.com
Back to reality - Now that the final episode of the BBC2 Design For Life with Philippe Starck has finished and we know that Liverpool designer and college lecturer Ilsa Parry won (Congratulations Ilsa – a really cool design) its worth a reminder that you can meet her and the other finalist Michael Cloke at the Liverpool Design Festival.
Visitors to the Eco Design Show (30 Oct – 1 Nov 2009) in The Crypt can meet Ilsa who will be selling her clever Kaspa lamps that glow in the dark long after the bulb is switched off and Michael who takes waste items and turns them into useful household objects.
And a reminder too that there is an exclusive 2 for 1 ticket offer for ArtInLiverpool readers
