Still for me the best album of the year- Fold outs!!
It might have to be time to think about sofobomo. I quite like the thought of "found things" but I never find cool things like maps of worlds that don't exist just lying on the road. I found a tenner the other day, but I whohooed loudly, and the guy with his daughter in the bike looked up, so I felt I just had to ask him if he had lost it. Turns out he had.
shoulda sofobomoed his ass.
What makes the best photo book do you think? Photos have to be imaginative, evocative, capture a blink of time that tells a whole story or look cool.
This guys blog is called found objects. and he has ghost signs. Now I like those... but do they make good photos? kind of in a geek way but...
see this is a good photo
where do you get them from then?
I might call it "all people are interesting" and then still take portraits of randoms in places in London that I love. Have one photo or a portrait and one of the person in that place.
I could even start it tomorrow.
which is perhaps the most procrastinistic thing I have ever written.

So my friends brought me an amazing present for my birthday.
Stack is some sort of hub that ventures through the printed media of the world, and once a month picks out something they find and sends it to my house.
I mean really- cool mail I do not need to steal. with my name on the front! saying- hey I am not a bill, or a pizza menu- I am something that will make you more interesting if you read me.
So so far the best thing they have sent me is Delayed Gratification that not only chronicles the news of the last quarter in bite size pieces that help you remember all those sundays spent over the observer- but it also gives you the information in an illustrated -what do they call it- infograms... which just make learning easier...

Hi gang. Phew, I was wondering whether I was going to find the best record of the year, but here it is.
Iron & Wine Kiss each other clean
This record is perfect Sunday afternoon music, fave songs include the attached, as well as walking far from home and Rabbit will Run. A very thoughtful lyric mixed with unvonventional and interesting phrasing keeps the songs rattling around your head all day. musical brunch.

I remember (here we go, I feel already your eyes glazing over reaching for the skip button) the days when cassettes ruled, aa batteries mattered and a good way to spend an afternoon was to hunch over the radio and tape songs. Mixed tapes took a good deal of time, and where are they now?
Well, online of course indulgent? Perhaps, but lets give the guy some credit. Come on feel the noise after Eat it? classic eighties.
However if you want to get some mixed tape CD's - Join this facebook group- if the link works, (if not generic search engine is yr friend)
Love is A Mixed Tape I do it, you do not often get what you put in, but I love it.

New Year, New Mirrors.
That's enough from you. You don't write, you don't call, you think a face book status update is enough to sustain this sort of relationship? well its not bucko.
Here we are then, and I will let you into a secret, I am to write in here once a week. There I have put it down in this internet thing here- (interesting things machine) and I am bound to it. If I don't do it then I look like the sort of person who makes resolutions and then disregards them! I will be like a leper. Or a wolf. Yes a lone wolf.
I am making this easy on myself by dedicating this entry to shard watch. Now if you were lucky enough to sit next to me at work, you would know that I am deeply impressed at the changing of the London skyline by the shard. Now London is always changing- cranes and scaffolding cover most of the west end at any given time, but something so startling as this mammoth building does not happen everyday. Now I am not going to bore you with the nuts and bolts about it. But I am going to show you the three pictures I have taken it this last weekend.
There you have it. I will keep you updated with Shard Watch when blog inspiration runs thin.
