Keep up to date with all that is Origin of Cool:
Origin of Cool: UK
We have just launched the Origin of Cool YouTube channel with one of our own remixes- Fenton the Dog (OBEY-v-Jesus Christ remix). Would love to know what you think in the comments below or on YouTube.
Also check out our previous post: Fenton the Dog mashup
Origin of Cool: Everywhere
We have launched our Facebook Page and the community is growing fast! Like our page and discuss which moustair is the coolest, whether you would buy a real life Mario Kart, and why on earth Benton (or was it Fenton?!) the dog chased those poor deer around Richmond Park?!
Below are some of the coolest people we know and we wanted to say a quick thank you to them for all of their support so far. Click on the image below to join them:
Origin of Cool: UK
Last week was the 55exhibition at Tony’s Gallery launched by 55pages. It was produced, directed, curated by 55employees and featured artists SICKBOY, BERT and Exhibit A.
Origin of Cool were invited to attend by crochet artist Olek and editor David J Lowe had the privilege of being asked to wear one of Olek’s creations - a crochet suit!
Here are some of the photos from a very interesting night:

Wristwatch-Shaped Post-It Notes
Say goodbye to writing things on your hand and maybe possibly getting ink-poisoning! These cute little watch-shaped Post-It notes are gummed at one end of the “strap” so you can wrap them around your wrist with reminders written on them.
If there was a link here that took you to a checkout so you could buy these Post-It watches through Origin of Cool, is this something you would consider? If so, please add “YES” in the comments or tweet/share the link using #OriginofCoolRules.
If we get enough, we’ll open an online shop for you!!
