Wacky wallpaper

Apologies for the rubbish quality of this photo. It's a snap of a bit of wallpaper designed by Scottish duo Timorous Beasties. I'm not really into wallpaper per se (it dates, I doubt I could hang it straight, I might get sick of the design, I'd feel bad about paying someone else to strip it off because I'm too lazy to do it myself etc etc) but if I'd had a boy then I'm pretty sure this would be going up in their bedroom.

It's a great urban scene featuring a skateboarder, BMX riders, TV antennae, road barriers, CCTV, a lamp post, and more. It's familiarity is kind of soothing and pleasant to look at. I'd feel nauseous having to live with a pastoral scene or somesuch, but this I could tolerate.
