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 […]

Consumed the week of 2 September, 2019

This famous photo of two people wrapped up in a duvet in the middle of Woodstock was taken by the amazingly-named Burk Uzzle. Longreads interviewed him about his life, his work and that particular image. I will read anything about Charles Schulz, so this article that asks Did Schulz Really Write ‘Peanuts’ for Kids? made […]

Consumed the week of 26 August, 2019

I’m still not reading a lot at the moment. Been a few weeks now where I’ve spent more time listening to music and watching films than I have reading articles or books. I did finish The Lost Man, by Jane Harper who also wrote another Australian outback thriller The Dry (which I read last year). […]

Consumed the weeks of 12 and 19 August, 2019

I’ve watched quite a few old films recently. Nina was away in New York with work for a week, but before she went we had a cinema date to go and see Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, at the Everyman in Crystal Palace. Definitely not Tarantino’s best (as I’ve heard a few people say) […]

Consumed the month of July (and a bit of August), 2019

I didn’t really mean to, but a trip up to Manchester for a friend’s 40th, plus a trip to Spain to […]

Consumed the week of 8 July, 2019

Loads to get through this week so let’s dive right in… That video above is from the YouTube channel Veratisium and it goes into brilliant detail about how YouTube works. Fascinating stuff. Coincidentally, the sam day I watched that, I also listened to the most recent episode of Reply All, which also looks at YouTube’s […]

Consumed the week of 1 July, 2019

Very short update this week, mainly because for half of the week I was residing in the ‘shepherd’s hut’ pictured above, in the middle of the Surrey Hills. I rode the 30 or so miles to get there on my bike, and spent my time walking around the area, eating bread and cheese and drinking […]

Consumed the week of 24 June, 2019

Above, the trailer for Jay Myself, a documentary about the photographer Jay Maisel and specifically his move out of his 35,000 square-foot, 100-year-old landmark building in Manhattan. I will eat this up with a giant spoon. My recommended long read this week is the same long read everyone else has been linking to this week: […]

Consumed the week of 17 June, 2019

I read two books this week, thank mainly to one of those books being very short. As well as being very short, The Parakeeting of London is very entertaining and fun. In it gonzo ornithologists Nick Hunt and Tim Mitchell “track the progress of the parakeets from park to cemetery to riverbank, meeting Londoners from […]
