    Along with a set of custom ear plugs which I;m waiting on after having lug 'ole impression made at the weekend....

    Some slips ons, fancy a bit of extra bark but nothing anti social, well not until I move to a house with no neighbours or don't have to leave for work @ 06:00;

    A tuner;

    Indicators, what for getting rid of them all in one jobbies that look like they've come off a 1970's Honda;

    Winged this up on the wall in the kitchen on Friday.

    I've been really impressed with the "Not a TV, honest guv" aspect of it when it's "off", but also very critical of it as well - i.e. is that the right white balance, brightness, mount style and so on, adjusting here and there and questioning if it really blends as a piece of artwork as opposed to a big TV displaying a picture, as clearly I'm aware it's a TV in disguise.

    A friend stopped by on Sunday, comes into the kitchen and stops in her tracks, the essence of the chitchat that follows is something like...

    Her - Oh that's new, ins't it
    Me - Sure is, just went up
    Her - I really like it
    Me - Yeah thanks, me too
    Her - It's definitely a statement
    Me <realises she's talking about the print it's displaying, and doesn't realise it's a TV, gets giddy>
    Me <wakes up TV>
    Her <has a visible short-circuit as she tries to figure out what just happened>

    Vindicated... and no longer obsessively tweaking and second-guessing the art-mode settings.

    Also I think putting up some... "questionable" art, or perhaps something "tastefully explicit" for visitors might be my new favourite game, while it lasts anyway.

    Oh man that would be perfect... sadly I don't think it's possible. Changing it is a matter of scrolling through a catalogue and picking something.

    There are some preset buttons on the remote that I might be able to associate with different images to facilitate a quick-change. Also smartphone integration... the SmartThings app is needed to load any of your own stuff but not something I've played around with yet, so maybe that's an avenue to do something tricksy.

    It's plumbed into a pair of Bluesound Pulse2s as well... if I could sync it to a similarly instantaneous blip of sound...

    I'm mildly concerned you've not had a lid all this time..

    But then I am one of those "weirdos" that insists on the correct safety equipment when the general public are involved.

    I do dude.

    I've got a high end Bontrager for my big bike and that's fine, but you look like a belm with one of those on a BMX.

    I've got a BMX helmet but it's a bit small and I had to remove the comfort pads so it's way uncomfortable.

    That's why I didn't wear one.

    What's odd is that I rode in the road bognor side but something told me not to do that at mum's end. Which is weird 'cause when I took it home from here last week I took the road.

    Luck and fate I suppose. Just wasn't my time. Thankfully.

    I've got one like that for my BMX lmao. I also have this.

    [​IMG]

    As well as another lock I won't go into. It's all covered with this.

    [​IMG]

    Which also locks lol. Autie over kill Cheesecake. It's not "un stealable" but it's damn bloody close. Close enough to make them take one that's easier.

    I also got this. Only tiny (15l) but enough to carry a tube, spanner and pump. I bought a cheap one last year only for it to disintegrate at a show ffs. I had a bog roll and everything in there it was so embarrassing :D
