A new piece of stencil art, expressing socio-political commentary with panache, has appeared on the side of the Poundland building on Whymark Avenue in London. While still unconfirmed, there is strong suspicion that the piece is by Banksy, using the uncoming Queen's 60th Jubilee as a stage to comment on child labor laws within the UK. The street art clearly shows a string of Union Jack flags — traditionally used as decoration for celebrations involving the Queen — being sewn together by an underage child.

    Everybody loves shiny stuff, and now you can customize your platform toys with shiny paint from Montana. In my own experience, Montana has the best range of colors and best application of all the spray brands I've tried.
