Last Tuesday I moved back to Manchester, I got into the swing of things and on Thursday and Friday was working at Indy Man Beer Con (hosted at Victoria Baths, the chimney pictured above). On Sunday I got along to The Moss Cider Project to drop off around 50kg of apples, before spending the evening cooking.
- Moving back, I finally picked up my 12 Dozen Egg Cups, I’m waiting for a sunny day to photograph them, and I may even ask if there’s any unsold.
- I bought a few zines with the remaining deposit money, #gilmoreboyz, No Visitors, Werewolf Jones & Sons, and Hypnotic Midday Movie by Simon Hanselmann and htmlflowers. I’ve been following their work for years and it always improves, it’s a real pleasure when I see a manila envelope on the floor.
- Mould Map 4 was also waiting for me, Eurozone spezial responds to the recent and coming crises within Europe, of the EU, Schengen, and TTIP.
- It was Good Press’ 4th Birthday! I bumped into them at the ICA a few weeks back, and since then I’ve been paid…
- I’m currently filling my calendar up with literary events in Manchester, courtesy of Kate Feld.
- Amongst the many reasons for being sad about temporarily leaving London, I’m missing out on a load of oysters, surprisingly, Autumn - not summer - is the season for them!
- I found it somewhat gratifying that the criminally neglected Red Road estate in Glasgow didn’t entirely give up, but rather left a precariously balanced turd for the developers to clean up. Chris Leslie writes on experiencing the end of the estate, with fantastic photography.
- It was particularly enlightening to read this article on the Westernisation of the Middle East via Cowboys, while thinking about Theeb, the film that a few weeks ago I wouldn’t shut up about.
- Is there a tendency to compare 90s Berlin to ‘20s Weimar?
- My new favourite Twitter account, The Cat Reviewer
