Went to The Astoria last night to see SeaSick Steve, the place was sold out but managed to get a spot behind the sound deck good view and a bar just behind us, Seasick came on to a marching drum and launched straight into some amazing, low down, hobo, stringless, muddy guitar blues... music that could only come from a street living, traveling, story telling, train jumping, apple picking guitar thrashing, dungaree wearing, bearded genius...

I just love this idea of street art, tiny instalations all around us, a world beyond big.
"Basically the perpetrators pinch posters, cut them up into smaller pieces
and then rearrange them on a billboard to make fresh images"

Passing through Shoreditch it's good keep your eyes open for a Banksy or a touchdown of the French artist Space Invader this Sunday I looked up to find this face growling down at me from the corners of curtain road and Old Street.

Antony Gormley's work has been seen all over london of late with 31 statues displayed on buildings around London
this is permanent and is just around the corner to me on Euston road and is called Reflection
"Reflection comprises a familiar rust-coloured Gormley figure looking at both its reflection in a window and a twin sculpture on the other side of the pane at the entrance of the offices at 350 Euston Road, London, the augmented reflection shimmering almost like a holographic image."
i do like it.................

This is absolutely brilliant! O2 have set up a group on Facebook called ‘The Battle for the UK’s Favourite University’. This ties in perfectly with their ‘Favourite Place’ campaign and instead of going on about how great O2 is, it is encouraging people to get together and chat about how fantastic their university is, why it’s more fun than others, what’s cool etc. The more Facebook activity a uni has, the more points it earns. The uni with the most points at the end of it will win a £50k party. Currently there are 75,814 members, with 1,203 discussion topics and 2,651 wall posts. You need to have a facebook profile to look at it but if you have one, check it out here. So simple, yet so clever. Come on Exeter!!
