Lucky escape for the Trafalgar Square crowds

September 1st, 2009 · 3 Comments · Life

I received the email today that told me I was not picked for the final tranche of people to take their place on the 4th plinth as part of Antony Gormley’s One & Other.  While I am a little disappointed, that is far outweighed by relief.  I have seen quite a few of the past […]

Zombies in Trafalgar Square

August 3rd, 2009 · 1 Comment · Life

This afternoon I made the short journey up to London to go and see Andrew do his thing in Trafalgar Square as part of Anthony Gormley’s One & Other project. I went for several reasons: to support Andrew, to support a good cause, to get some use out of my cameras, and because…  well I […]

Thirty years on – Spizzenergi in London

August 2nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Thirty years on – Spizzenergi in London · Music

I went online tonight and bought my ticket for the Spizzenergi 30th anniversary gig at the 100 Club.  I decided that it wasn’t worth the risk of just turning up because with all the publicity there is a real chance of it selling out.

A plinth among men!

July 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on A plinth among men! · Life

A little while back I mentioned how Andrew from Wongablog was going to be appearing on the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square as part of Antony Gormley’s One & Other project.  I was a bit jealous about that, especially as he got allocated a prime slot (4pm on a Sunday) but I’m now hoping that […]

Not meeting new friends

July 13th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Politics

On Sunday I went up to London for the day.   The official reason was to meet up with some other Labour activists, bloggers and general good-eggs but I made sure I got there early so I could do some sight-seeing and visiting of old haunts.  I think it is the first time I have been […]

Small world

March 29th, 2009 · Comments Off on Small world · Life

Yesterday’s visit to London showed how it might be a big city but it’s a small world.  We were in London Bridge tube station and I saw a work colleague walking past with his wife.   We had a few words and he mentioned that he had just bumped into another of our colleagues in the […]

The end of the line

March 29th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Music

Just back from seeing Metallica at the O2 Arena.  A late return, courtesy of London Transport who closed the Jubilee line due to “essential engineering works”.  I think the only way they could have annoyed us more would be if they had announced it was closed due to unessential engineering works. The return home was […]

Street Life

March 25th, 2009 · Comments Off on Street Life · Life, Technology

I am really loving Google’s Street View at the moment.   Google’s cameras have not yet penetrated West Sussex so I can’t look at my house, but that doesn’t bother me too much: if I wanted to do that I could just go outside.   What I have been doing is ‘visiting’ old haunts to see if […]
