Déjà-vu? Look again…

20110123 Cool Smoking Dude 150x150 Déjà vu? Look again...It’s been a week since I last posted on here, but fear not: I am still here and there are plenty of new pictures waiting to be uploaded. As you can see I have been busy updating the site, creating a new look front page, which is more eye-catching now. Déjà vu? Seen it already? Look again… The eagle-eyed would have noticed the new feature as well: Lolphaces. To be fair, you couldn’t miss it, as there is a massive Foxtrot Oscar banner on the front page as well! A Twitter feed has been added to the bottom of the page and if you want more regular updates about this site, do join the conversation!

On the subject of déjà vus, this latest face was spotted whilst out for some drinks with a few friends about a week ago. It bears an uncanny resemblance to a cigarette bin I spotted previously and wrote about in “Smoking: a cool image?” but it is a slightly different model with rounded corners. It is probably a health & safety version for busy town centres, to prevent drunken revellers from accidentally poking their eyes out on sharp corners when they crash into it… or something. Still, you’d bruise yourself if did fall… and it would ‘kin hurt!

I remember the first time I had a deja vu. They are strange things. I must have been a four or five-year-old lad, sitting on the sofa at home somewhere in Leicestershire. As I was sitting there perched between my parents, watching TV I had a strange sensation that I had somehow “seen this before”, or “been here before”. At the time I tried to describe to my parents what I was feeling, but my dad didn’t understand. “Well, of course you’ve seen this before; we sit on the sofa pretty much every night,” came the response. Well, true, but that didn’t adequately address the point, which I – as a five-year-old – probably hadn’t made very well in the first place. This experience stayed with me for a long time, as it was something so bizarre that no-one had ever offered me an explanation for. It wasn’t until much later in life that I realised there was a word for what I had experienced.
