Kraftwerk - Live 1981 - Photos

You can't be a Robot fanatic and not love Kraftwerk. Thanks to @kidcalmdown who found these photos from Charles Robinson. I wish I was there. Though seeing them at the Big Day Out in 2003 was a very special show.

Robot Coasters

I love my coffee table. Currently it has a stack of (mostly unread) TIME magazines, 4 remote controls, a no smoking sign I tool from an Irish pub in China and a stack of Misfits Coasters. I now know what I am missing. These beautiful Robot Coasters.

These have been created by Julia Davey for her White Elephant range.

Thanks to Rollagirl9 for the tip.

Dressing Up Robot

When I was 6, I made a Robot costume from a cardboard box and tin foil. Now that I am a few decades older, my choice of Robot wear needs to be more sophisticated.

Lucky there are designers like See By Chloe whose Robot Print Dress are much more in tune with my current style.

A great example of online retailing too - as usual - from a US site. Love the fact you can magnify the material.

Robot Photos from @jyesmith

I always smile when someone takes the time to send me a Robot picture they have found in their own travels. I like these Robots. Unusual plastic shapes. Plus I love the fact they are sitting on the same shelf as these weird African dolls. What is the connection?
