We use idioms to pepper our speech and writing, often without even realising we’re doing it. These odd little phrases are used to express a sentiment other than their literal meaning. It doesn’t really rain cats and dogs, as the world and his wife knows.
I’ve always been fascinated by foreign idioms; they give us a unique insight into the culture that uses them. Did you know that in German you can say “to live like a maggot in bacon” instead of “to live the life of luxury”? Idioms can tell us a lot about what matters to a nation. They’re a window to the soul.
London based Blast Skates recently released three limited edition skateboards under the name Chronological Series One. There are only 20 pieces of each board design and all three have their own unique shape! Marcus Oakley created an artwork for one of the boards on the theme Dinosaurs. Get your own board now!
Ps. All boards are handmade in England.
Cut the crap! Throw away your old plastic cutting board – The Marcus Oakley wooden cutting boards are now available in new motives with two legendary bands. Choose between The Beach Boys and Fleetwood Mac, or be wild and crazy and get them both!
