Etam Cru. High Class street art. Graffiti just doesn’t do it justice. A strong, slightly surreal, narrative element. Loving it.

This is the kind of urban art that authorities should welcome/encourage [with resident’s permission of course] as what is more boring than a blank gable end?

Bridges

I found this puzzle last week in a newspaper. Similar to traditional plank puzzles. Looks interesting. You have to read the instructions carefully, as not obvious that you may have ‘more than one’ bridge between pairs of islands [but not more than two]. In some ways a higher maths dot-to-dot.

heavy elements

I had forgotten how ‘creepy’ these were! Shame there were so few. I know there were some radio plays about a decade back but you’d think that the set up would be perfect for live theatre? Very minimal special effects would be needed to convey the presence of time/spirits/otherworldly entities. Great ghost story/whodunnit type narratives with plenty of character development possible over the 90 minutes of a play.

1999

Watched this afternoon. Had forgotten how good it was for the time. Treating the space stuff as fairly serious [apart from the initial Moon escaping Earth orbit conceit]. The ‘design’ all seems very Kubrik 2001 workmanlike/believable. One of the ‘classic’ British TV series that you wonder why it never went big screen cinema?  Along with Blake’s Seven, UFO, etc
