Collected Ephemera #08
– Nice to see a small piece in the Guardian about the School Of Life’s M1 ‘Trip Up The M1’. I hope they keep up with these because all three of the ‘holidays’ they’ve offered so far have been a deal more interesting than most – the trip to the Isle of Wight with Martin Parr being a particular highlight.
– When Arindam Rej’s article on the success of Hull City went to print the story was actually a case of ‘London 0 – Hull 3’ so it was a risky use of The Houesmartin’s “London 0 – Hull 4′ album, albeit a fairly reasonable risk to take – so he must have been rather pleasinged about Hull’s 1-0 win over West Ham which completed the square.
– I haven’t visited Hastings for many many years however the fact that Tony Kelly in The Times tags it as ‘Hastings: home of crazy golf’ means it’s back on the (increasingly sizey) list of places to visit from here on in.
– Westminster Council it seems are no longer enjoying the work of a certain Robin Banks. However as a writer responds in The Times “The world is a happier, smarter and more sane place for Banksy’s presence, the same cannot be said for CCTVs or Westminster council”.
– I know very little about Emroy Douglas but what little I’ve seen in recent weeks ahead of his show ‘Black Panther: Emory Douglas and the Art of Revolution’ has been very good indeed.
– And finally it’s good to see the family name cleared at last.
