Cultural Blog to explore...

Via BLDGBLOG which is a great place to browse, came across the Polar Inertia blog, which describes itself as a "journal of nomadic and popular culture" , with a US leaning due to its location, but with a varied mix of geographical content ranging from Singapore to Japan to Italy and beyond... Check out this great image of a 99 cent store, which fits in nicely with work we do on consumption. What are our UK based equivalents of these ? Where in the town or city would you find them ? Why would they be located there ? Can their pattern be mapped ? How ephemeral are they ?
