    I like it too, when we first moved in, the front of the shed was really sun bleached, it gets the sun from dawn till 4pm, i didn't want to alter the way it looks but i did want to protect it from the elements somewhat so i painted it with this oil... .. the sides of the shed which are in the shade still look brand new so i thought i would leave them be.

    Only thing ive done today is make some trellis for my shed out of a couple of bits o' 1/4ply... nailed 2 strips together, drilled some holes through them and shaped the top. Im training this clematis to climb up the handrail and over the shed ..bent a couple of coppice branches while they were still green to span the gap ..meanwhile the cat brought me a nest followed by 3 recently hatched chicks .

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    It is interesting but makes little difference to me, i usually wash every 6mths or so and a pair of my jeans rarely lives much past the 2yr mark so they would only see 4, maybe 5 washes in their lifetime..

    I had a similar blast a couple of years ago.. my (then) 9yr old was banging out the soundtrack to Floor Kids.. i was like wtf this has to be Kid Koala...and lo and behold T'was Big Dada put out a lot of good shiz back then... around this time a group of my friends used to run a small club night called 'Phonetics' which was a guest list for me if i could be arsed to go out... it was a dj set, usually hip-hop followed by (oddly) based up Samba/Chiliean followed by some crew they hired, Task Force, Ty, Peanut Butter Wolf, Mark B and Blade, The Infesticons, 4Hero, Birdy Nam Nam...ect, then D&B till morning...

    Have you checked DelBombers @Punch ? There has been a bit of Gleem chat over the years, personally i would keep an eye on Yahoo for their older models, they used to look more like 501's Gleem 201's taken from the WH thread ..worn

    My nan used to throw a pinch of salt over her shoulder 'into the face of the devil' if she ever spilled salt.. I don't know anything about Begin but they do look like a bunch of cool-cat Okinawan's

    Thanks Mike, nailing this down is like the good old days most of the blog posts state 'I don't care for BEGIN, i only care for the rainbow fabric' They also reference 'Hotei salt' which would support what you're saying "Hotei, in Japanese mythology, one of the Shichi-fuku-jin (“Seven Gods of Luck”). This popular figure is depicted frequently in contemporary crafts as a cheerful, contented Buddhist monk with a large exposed belly, often accompanied by children. Tradition relates him to a Chinese monk called Pu-tai, who because of his benevolent nature came to be regarded as an incarnation of the bodhisattva (the future Buddha) Maitreya (Miroku in Japanese) but whose large protruding stomach led to his being caricatured as the “Laughing Buddha.” ...and the Shamisen loop translates to 'hanging keep' so it probably is for carrying the instrument, i assume the neck would be down by the leg and the body would sit at the waist. ..any Shamisen players in the house?

    I think they look pretty damn good @julian-wolf considering you knowingly bought the wrong size, ive seen much worse fits around the forum where folks have 'sized correctly'

    which translates to 'rice bag' this is 'salt pouch' ? it might not be anything to do with tradition it could relate to a Begin song.. ..i found an old Ameba blog post where he goes on to explain some of the details but 'forgets' what the clerk in the store told him about the salt, which makes me think it's Begin related.. Any Begin fans in the house?

    Ive 'refreshed' my memory, it's a pouch of salt not rice and it does seem to be bartack sealed, it does symbolise something..i just haven't quite figured out what The loop on the left is something to do with supporting a shamisen or sanshin, the traditional 3 stringed instrument of Okinawa, they do seem to be played on the hip, i would be interested to know more??... i assume looped over the peg on the bottom? or maybe it's just for carrying the instrument around. It looks like they're played with a large plectrum (bachi) i bet that goes in the small hip pocket. This example is adorned with the same native python skin as the Okinawa patch They also came with a Begin cloth, i always thought that it was like a bandana to shove in the small pocket when ive seen it folded up but its more like a towel, Oh! and you get a Begin tote Begin provided the music for a Sugarcane advertising campaign hence the link/denim.. ..I'll keep digging
