… you’re getting me excited Miss Jackson!
Roll on Thursday! Cannot wait to go to the Royal Albert Hall ))
The stand out act at this years Glastonbury festival has to be Janelle Monae. And you may not know she nearly didn’t make it as they had to evacuate her tour bus as it caught fire on the drive down on Saturday.
Archandroid has shot into the UK top ten on iTunes and Amazon reflecting a sales boost of 4,298%. How’d the other has beens do?
In case you missed it…
A small documentary film illustrating the progress of the London 2012 Olympic Park in Stratford.
Go Team GB!
I have been reading “Next Time We’re Flying Somewhere Sunny” and must confess its the first Kindle book I have failed to finish.
This is a cheap e-book and it shows.
The story follows the author and his girlfriend as they hire a VW camper van and drive through Europe.
The premise of the book was rather romantic and it sounded like a fun read. How wrong I was.
75% of the way through and the author is so depressed and down I couldn’t care less if they made it home or not. They hate the van, the countries they visit, the weather, the food – in fact everything.
This is not so much a book as a diary of someone who needs to appreciate life for what it is instead of whining about it and charging us all the privilege for reading such a pile of crap.
Next time I will buy another book!
Talking of which – can any of you suggest which book I should read next? I have downloaded numerous samples and nothing has grabbed me so far…
I am a fan of design and interior blogs and magazines (especially since starting to buy a house) and it dawned on me that I could achieve the close shot, arty photography that graces all those sites, especially since we now have a smart new house to show off.
So here, in a collection of simple, focussed photographs I present 186.
I am completely, utterly, wholly, wonderfully amazed and surprised (and pleased and chuffed) that Plymouth Gin has got itself a feature on one of my all time favourite web sites – Cool Hunting.
I am from Plymouth, I grew up just down the road from this place and as all my friends will testify I have long since been championing Plymouth Gin as THE BEST GIN in the world!
I am absolutely stoked that The Distillery on the Barbican has had such a great feature on such a prominent site and wish Plymouth Gin all the very best with their future success.
If you ever find yourself in Plymouth you must take the tour and try out this wonderful product.
