Repair Cafés

"By repairing an object, you enhance your relationship and add something to it, creating a story between you and the object. It is also a learning process, and a way to gain a little control over technology"

Interesting article by Inês Revés at Domus about the Repair Café Foundation.

Warm Sweater Day - Posted on

Not that we can read any Dutch, but the idea is simple: Wear a warm sweater, turn the heat slightly lower, save energy and reduce C02 emissions. Warm Sweater Day is an initiative of the Climate Alliance Association of The Netherlands and it is held annually around February 16, the day when in 2005 de Kyoto Protocol came into force.

Very proud that Bennett will be the owner of one of our bags this Xmas...
Change the World lyrics

M to the R-S-P-A-N-N

Get in where ya fit in cuz I ain't your friend

I'm your teacher not your preacher so just save your Amen

And let me kick the rhyme off from where it begin

[16 bars, 4 stanzas of 4 lines each ]

These are times that try men's souls

All the madness of the world starting to take its toll

People start breaking the rules, they end up breaking the mold

Do anything at all just to get that gold

Feel like we been calling God but she put us on hold

Earth goes from scorching hot to freezing cold

Seems like every single bank is just waiting to fold

A million houses for sale and not one of 'em sold

There's bleak weather ahead and it calls for more storming

It's about time that we heeded the warning

With each day that passes more obstacles forming

From economic crisis to global warming

The world is poised with anticipation

From the ATL to across the nation

So turn on your mind and turn off your playstation

And come be a part of the new sensation


This ain't a great depression, it's a great opportunity

So get on your feet and show the world what you can be

It’s about time we stop passing the blame

Like Michael Jackson said, you can make that change


I ain’t so sure about the melting pot we proclaim to foster

I ain’t never no Indians chillin at Red Lobster

I don’t see signs in English on the Buford Highway

Speak English to my wife but she don’t understand what I say

Bush left New Orleans low after Katrina

Look at the whack response from Fema

Poor blacks without homes left to die

Sounds like the 1800s to me, ya’ll I ain’t gonna lie

Look at Halliburton and the Blackbriar scandal

No wonder pumps don’t work Yo, the vandals took the handles

War in Iraq cuz of gas in our Hondas

While we ignore genocide in Darfur and Rwanda

John Edwards, Mark Sanford, Elliot Spitzer

Their wives weren’t enough so they up and dismissed her

Don’t forget about Monica and Bill Clinton

He was getting some from her even if he wasn’t hittin’

Plaxico Burress shoots himself in the leg,

Ex Tennessee Titan Steve McNair been shot dead

MLB sluggers pump themselves full of lead,

They got more dope in their veins than brain cells in their head


With all of these problems how we gonna solve ‘em

It’s your world, you got to lead and not foll’a

You youngins out there have got to pimp the game

Just like Michael Jackson said you can make that change


“But Mr. Spann, I’m just a little kid

I don’t Mark Sanford or the things he did

I just want to know how I can make a change

How can I break off the world, how can I pimp the game?”

Well, you can eat lunch with a student who just doesn’t fit in

You can read A People’s History by Howard Zinn

You can learn about your grandparents before their lives end

You can break up a skirmish before riots begin

You can work a real job without lying or stealing

You can write your English papers with passion and feeling

You can study all night until your mind begins reeling

You can volunteer for those who need help and need healing

You can give your family’s leftovers to bums in the street

You can bust a freestyle just need words and a beat

You can set your goals high, take on each challenge you meet

You can jump and touch the sky knowing you’ll land on your feet

You can protect animals like Polar Bears and Baboons

You can learn a new instrument like flute or bassoon

You can turn off the light when you leave the room

Or you can be like Shane Kimbrough and go to the moon

The change can be big or the change can be small

But whatever you do, be yourself and stand tall

The world is our oyster and you all are its pearl

So go head and go Ya’ll, change the world . . . .

I know that Mr. Peebles is gonna change the world

I know Dr. Dunkel gonna change the world

I know that Heidi Gray is change the world

I know that Angela Mitchell’s gonna change the world

Elliot McCarthy gonna change the world

And Jennifer Choi is gonna change the world

And Chloe Johnson is gonna change the world

And Joan Freihofer’s gonna change the world

I said Hunter Rich is gonna change the world

And Jeremy Trombetta’s gonna change the world

Peter Diaz is gonna change the world

And Amina Khan is gonna change the world

Sam Bailey is gonna change the world

9th Graders are gonna change the world

10 th graders are gonna change the world

11th graders are gonna change the world

All a ya’ll Seniors gonna change the world

I said the Lovett Lions are gonna change the world

Atlanta, GA is gonna change the world

The USA gonna change the world

The whole world is gonna change the world

I said The whole world is gonna change the world

I said The whole world is gonna change the world

I said The whole world is gonna change the world
