I’ve just released a Chicago themed design available as a tote, throw pillow and comforter! 

The design weaves together engineering drawings from major Chicago landmarks including The Chicago Theatre and historic Loop bridges.

…They’re so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up here.

Self defence sprays that are legal to carry and use in the United Kingdom

Image 1: Farbgel
Image 2: StoppaRed

I’ve seen a lot of people (mostly women, for reasons which may be obvious) speaking about being worried when going out, be it alone or even with friends, both in the day and at night. I know that a lot of female friends of mine carry around a can of antiperspirant or a pot of pepper to use if they’re ever attacked. What I know a lot of people don’t realise is that there are products out there which work in a violent situation and help in catching the assailant for the best part of a week afterwards.

Known as ‘criminal identifiers’, these sprays are brightly coloured dyes which can be sprayed in the face of an attacker. Unlike things such as CS or Pepper sprays, criminal identifier sprays are legal in the UK.

There’s a few available on the market, with farbgel and Mace’s Stoppared being the mostly highly recommended.

What these sprays do is release a sticky, brightly coloured dye. It’s difficult to wipe away and stains the skin a bright red colour. No matter how hard an attacker might try to remove it from their skin and clothing, the staining typically lasts for around a week and doesn’t even start to fade until after a few days have passed.

Unlike CS and Pepper sprays (which, again, aren’t legal in the UK) criminal identifier sprays don’t cause irritation or pain to an attacker. Instead, they expand and clog up the area sprayed with a kind of sticky foam that’s difficult to wipe away. It should give you enough time to escape and report someone whose face resembles a baboon’s arse to the police.

Each can of the sprays costs around £10 each, though it may be cheaper when buying multiple canisters and if you shop around.

I haven’t always been fat. But I’ve been fat for probably the last eight years or something, which is really fun and really great. I love eating food and drinking beer and having fun with my life. But I was also was kind of depressed a little bit when I was fat. And I think there’s probably people out there who can agree and understand what that feels like. And I tell ‘em: Hey! If you just like bust your ass and get after it, all it takes is like six months, really. Six months flies by, whether you are working out every day, whether you’re not. So if you feel compelled to do something about it, take some action and get in shape… Do it! You could, you really could.

TODAY IN THEATRE HISTORY: In 1981, following an 11 month national tour, a revival of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison re-creating his Tony and Oscar Award winning performance as Henry Higgins, opens on Broadway at the Uris Theatre. Although Harrison fought with Actors Equity to have British actress Cheryl Kennedy as his Eliza Doolittle, vocal damage forces her to drop out of the production after the first Broadway preview, and she is replaced by her American-born understudy Nancy Ringham.

For more on the 1981 revival of My Fair Lady, including a look inside the opening night Playbill, visit PlaybillVault.com.
