Made the most of the sunny Sunday and visited the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow and made summer plans with friends. Today I’m back in the library working on the dissertation, and hoping that the rain stops soon.
- “I spent the last few months working on a film score, then I got fired. No hard feelings.”
- Shout out to the ICA. In this article Sumitra Upham talks to Selectism about the upcoming show on pirate radio stations, something I’m getting more and more interested in.

- “We’re all hallucinating, in a landscape that has become more surreal and more authoritaruan in equal measure. The physical landscape has become infantilised, we are spoken to in baby voices by cereal packets and drinks cartons and are subjected to the ubiquitous sight of cartoon characters looming down from billboards offering us energy tariffs and payday loans. And yet life in this country has never seemed more coercive. More consumer choices than ever before, ‘have it your way’, but always within the narrowest set of parameters,,the moment you step out of line and express your anger the weight of the law comes crashing down, four years for nicking a bottle of water, the 2011 riots loom large in the suburban pysche.”
