Consumed the week of 9 September, 2019

Above, Sam Gainsborough makes William Blake’s paintings come alive over London buildings to mark the opening of the new Tate exhibition.

Also from Vimeo: this brilliant little documentary on New York Sanitation worker, Nelson Molina who has collected over 45,000 items from the stuff that’s thrown away on his route in East Harlem and catalogued and organised them all on the second floor of the M11 garage.

Last week I was clearing out the hard drives of an old Macbook and found my old iTunes library. So much great stuff, so many memories, so much money and time invested.. and now it’s effectively redundant. A few day later I came across A Decade of Music Is Lost on Your iPod. These Are The Deleted Years. Now Let Us Praise Them on Esquire.

As a forty-something year old man in the UK, I really shouldn’t be as interested in The Story of Caroline Calloway & Her Ghostwriter Natalie, but I really am.

Watched this week: The Honeymoon Killers from 1970 (thanks mainly to Danny Peary’s Cult Movies book which I picked up second hand last week).

Finaly got round to watching John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum which was great fun and help up really well until the last 20 minutes when it lost its way a little.

I alos watched Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood for the second time. This time at the Prince Charles cinema in 35mm. I enjoyed it even more the second time around.

Music-wise this week, how about a huge playlist celebrating the legendary Lovefingers blog?
