Fashion: Learn your stripes

We've always loved the motif motivation provided by Patternity, the "pattern consultancy" whose picture blog is a thing of fashion-world renown. And now design duo Anna Murray and Grace Winteringham are forging further connections with Pattern Power, a series of talks and events exploring pattern in all its guises. This year's inaugural jamboree focuses on stripes, and includes everything from science lectures to stripey-jelly-making classes. 6 to 21 April, London Newcastle Project Space, London E2, patternpower.eventbrite.co.uk

2. "Was that you playing drums just now?" "Yes that why it stopped when I came downstairs to answer the door" "Oh"

3. Ear ear. Still the funky left ear is driving me crazy paving.

4. Realizing I pack like an 8 year old that is running away from home

App watch: Smoking TM

Unfortunately we can't vouch for the quality of the Smoking Time Machine app, given that we haven't yet pushed through our fear of it; but basically it will modify smokers' photos to show how their good looks will be ravaged by the effects of fags over time. Look, we only do it socially OK? Free from iTunes and Google Play

Lexpionage: Eggocentrism, n.

The stage in a child's development characterised by lack of awareness that other people's points of view differ from their own, e.g. that not all the Easter eggs discovered on a 'hunt' belong to them

On the radar: Because some things are still worth getting excited about…

Food: Little Social

Given the only drawback of Jason Atherton's Pollen Street Social is the price, we are most excited by the opening of this affordable bistro offshoot, which is generating strong buzz. 5 Pollen Street, London W1, littlesocial.co.uk

Film: Let's All Be Free

Consider the concept of freedom at this new human-rights-oriented festival featuring guests including documentarian Kim Longinotto and a sterling shorts bill. SOAS, London WC1, Friday to Sunday, letsallbefree.com
