Kikstyo Online Now


Kikstyo are our newest brand, we were going to stock them before Xmas but it didn't happen, 70% of the product has sold out already and dont think there is much more due in.





We will be mainly stocking only the t/shirts as everything else is wayyyyyyyyy to expensive, the T/shirts aren't the cheapest but we have kept the price low.

Star Wars Funked Up

Photograper Cedric Delsaux has an amazing series of pictures of Star Wars characters in modern-day urban settings.

These photos are startling in the fact that they are original to the extreme, never seen anything executed as well as these (well not this year anyway). Goto Cedrics site and check out some of his other work, all good and i will be posting the other 5 photos next week





I hope you have enjoyed these photos as much as i have, a lot of people hace critiqued them, all good though, if i was going to be buying an original photo think id contact Cedric and slip him a bag of chips, bottle of Irn-Bru and bobs your uncle.

Zombie Dunny



Argentinean illustrator, Patricio Oliver, brings us a ghoul of a Dunny. Zombie Pet is kinda cute, if it wasn't for all the flesh eating.

How much is that zombie in the window?

Flood Damage, clear-up commences

About 2 weeks ago we got a whole shit-load of water from the frigging cafe upstairs, the dafties had a plastic compression fitting that wasn't properly fitted, gravity is a bitch and the water poured into fat buddha, all cleaned up now BUT.

We need to close for 4 weeks, to bring the ceilings down, dry out the joists and stick the ceiling back up again.
You will ofcourse be able to shop online at http://www.fatbuddhastore.com/, so, look forward to see you instore when we re-open and hope you like the subtle changes we will be making during hte closure.

Banner82 attack

Well, this week has seen us become victim to a nefarious SQL injection attack, those pesky folk hacking websites, brought our site down.

My web guy asked me had i pissed anyone off or had any enemies that would want to bring the site down. Well, it was easier to work out who my friends were rather than enemies.

So site is back, re-coded it, changed data input, stuck on some padlocks for good measure and we are back in action.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/ , this is one heck of a site, the knowledge level here is pretty high and provided us with a starting point to fixing the site, but to be fair Brian at http://www.brianwatson.co.uk/ came up with his own take on hte matter and fixed the thing
