things that I like and look at ..........

Stuff to share, stuff I like, things that make me happy, things that bring joy
and lots of other things as well. It might make no sense, infact if its here, it very likely is a load of stuff & no sense

Wolfgang Tillman

 Plus you can check out the pavilion whilst you are there. 

Mountain Man - Animal Tracks by Partisan Records

Mountain Man - Animal Tracks by Partisan Records

Great music, go get listening
These girls can sing and then some........

A good night out

Alessi's Ark,  Lone Wolf, Mountain Man and John Grant performed a very special intimate summer concert at Union Chapel the other night. 
Mountain Man were particularly uplifting, their deceptively simple approach and low key unadorned and unamplified voices sounded especially celestial like in the chapel setting

Cos again

Crates ahoy

Crates are cool, crates are great. Combine crates with clamps and you have a multitude of things you can make. 
Here are some rather fabulous ideas. 
These guys have neat and nifty clamps 

The glory of some Grenson brogues

I wore them to death, I wore them all summer and winter and much as I loved them, I can't remember what happened to them except I was sad at their ending. 
Ever since I have silently longed for a replacement.
Then I found these, or maybe they found me.... 
Let the good brogue times roll

Cardboard city, looking kinda pretty

Incase you didn't know, it is the 2010 London Festival of Architecture (19th June to 4th July).

So these guys, House of John and aberrant architecture are staging a joint two-week ‘pop-up residency’ in Selfridges' Wonder Room Windows.
Building a city live in front of your (and anyone else that is looking) eyes over a 2 week period. 

This city will be built around things people tell them about their own personal London, what they love in their city now, or what they want their city to be.

So come and see it - drop by anytime from 16th June to partake, get involved, chat with the guys or just stare stare and stare 
These pics are from day two, so if you think it looks fab now, keep an eye on it, it will just keep getting better and betterer

need a new rug?

Look at these gorgeous jewel like colours, all layered together. 
This is the now, this is the future, this is how all rugs should be, worn and loved and layered together. 
Moroso make these, they must be well chuffed with themselves. I would be if I'd made them.

Michael Clark is a god

love love love his moves, love his costumes, love he used to work with Bodymap and Leigh Bowery and he still woerks with Stevie Stewart, you just gotta love everything he does, the man is gifted. 
Go see Come, Been and Gone at the Barbican and experience that giftedness first hand, it is palpable. 
His dancers move with mesmerizing grace and precision in and out of contortionist like poses, using and filling the space on stage in a way that makes you want to laugh out loud with the audacity of it all. 
The man is a gifted god

Watch the birdie

now this is dead clever.
It was on at the Barbican.... sadly over now
Trained as a musician and composer, French artist CĂ©leste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways. His installation for The Curve will take the form of a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other instruments and objects. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape.


pretty prada, how pretty are there mannequins, how pretty are their pretty new heads and glasses. 
It is pretty perfection.

those clever folk at Liberties do it again

Nicholas Kirkwood for Liberty

Summer 2010 sees Flower Power blossom in the heart of London as Liberty celebrates its famous florals with a year-long programme of activity and events championing creativity, rebellion and love. Resplendent in this Flower Power is an exclusive, limited edition capsule collection by Nicholas Kirkwood using Liberty fabric.

From the Liberty archives Kirkwood selected Bounty - a print of exotic parrot tulips and Santa Maria - a tea dress print from the early 90s.

Dreamy windows from Liberty to celebrate their birthday. 
A lovely run of jewellery windows, very cleverly done by those clever folks at Liberties.
