Bear Necessities

Bear necessities

Why do they have these Disney toys in their window? Is it to appeal to kids as they walk past “Mummy please can we book a two week break in the Algarve”?… I find the toys a bit creepy, not to mention garish… And what do they have to do with a travel agency? Does Disney need to give permission for their images to be used in a commercial context? Will the toys still be sitting there, staring out at the bus stop, folorn and threadbare on a dusty shelf in a few years time?

Ugh, Comic Sans again…

Go Travel

Now look here… I realise that First Choice Travel was no cultural mecca.  Melvyn Bragg and Mark Lawson were not hot-footing down Tranquil Vale to come and admire it or anything.  But really, Go Travel isn’t doing a lot for taste and subtle design in Blackheath is it?

The photo doesn’t even show it in all its Plasma Screened, garish beauty.  Comic Sans all over the bloody place. Makes The Railway‘s frontage look like the Book of Kells… sort of…

And they’ve covered up the nice little mosaic with cheap blue carpet.  Grrr…
