Move on up


Jag har flyttat till Islington och är
supernöjd!

Önskar bara att de andra i huset var lite mer sociala men det råder en god husfrid. Trots att det är sniglar och andra djur ibland på bottenplanet...

Jag försöker läsa mycket tidningar just nu men det är överväldigande att försöka hänga med i alla ens intressen. Det är spännande likväl för jag upplever att det är i tidningar man får en uppfattning om vilka olika ideologier och uppfattningar som finns i samhället.

Nationella politiken känns så nerslipad, för att vinna popularitetstävlingar och inte trampa någon på tårna.

Fast hur många av de som köper håller med om åsikter som t.ex Daily Mail's rubrik i veckan som skyltade " CHRISTIANITY UNDER ATTACK".
Det var efter ett förbud som införts: kommunalrådsmöten ska inte längre inkludera kristna böner i dagordningen.

Jag har även börjat göra lite amatörish posters för Pipeline, vilket är kul. Inte mitt foto dock.

Sp & Co in Tradeshow


The bags have hit a Trade Show in London this week to strut their stuff, and so have some of my pictures.


Now let's keep our fingers crossed and beg for those big orders to come marching in...

Yayoi Kusama at Tate Modern

BBC did a nice report on Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama today, as she just launched a retrospectives at Tate Modern.

Her exhibition is called "Love Arrives at the Earth Carrying with it a Tale of the Cosmos."

The 82-year-old artist who lives voluntarily in a psychiatric institution in Japan, flew to London for the premiere.

"Talk to the hand!" The 5 min clip from BBC.

Smalltalk

Left picture from HERE

Posting some photos makes me feel less like a bore for being in all Friday night, reading for my History of British Media essay. At least the life of John Reith is a plethora of scandals; pedophilia, power struggles, adultery, homosexuality, religion, politics, etc. If you're struggling with the plot of your next feature film, his life is a no-brainer box office home run. Though, you might still have to appoint Michael Fassbender to play the lead.

Tomorrow London's Japanese fetishists are flooding work which is very exciting. I'm hoping to see the very best of manga-styled Harajuku girls and boys. It's also a mingling opportunity and 15 seconds of fame as The Associate Press are coming down to film the event. They're doing a documentary on Japanese culture for Sky.

I'm going to sleep now as I can feel a creeping fit of Photoshop Paranoia tampering with my nerves. A trade show is coming up next week for SP&Co. It would be great to have some larger prints on display then. The photos are improving gradually but I'm not really happy yet.


I'm also still chasing down rooms which is probably my own fault because I end up spending too much time talking to weirdos. Entertaining, unfortunately, but not very productive. Likes such as a 40 year old man from the Caribbean who likes to smoke and play video games. Before that I was bestowed the life story of an Ugandan who enjoys dancing naked in the rain and has a longing for kettle and goats.

This week I have been thinking a bit about honesty. This interview with Johnny Rotten was so funny. Why are we not honest with each other more often? When does a white lie become a watered down, boring compromise? And obviously, the uptightness of the interviewer and the rigid way she sticks to her questions is hilarious.
