I went to the Cup North coffee festival over the weekend and picked up a Workshop Gitesi and a Horsham Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Gutiti. These powered me through today as I tidied up my bedroom for the first time in 15 years. Reminded me of Anne Darboven who I saw in Edinburgh, and who’s flier I actually found.

It’s far preferable to trying to remove things one by one. I had previously heard of the KonMari method clothes, so I decided I’d something similar myself.
- ShowStudio have a series on the North, featuring fav photographers Jamie Hawkesworth and Adam Murray.
- The Skyliner’s Alternative Guides to Manchester are well worth reading, even if you think you know the city well. They’ve just published part 3, with part 4 on its way.
- Four Tet and Giles Peterson
- Heems talks food, race, politics and new work on Munchies.
I get pissed off about people in power talking so condescendingly about issues they don’t understand. All of these dickheads are on the other side of the river too
- Shia Labeouf entered the same group as Daniel Craig and Robert Pattinson of former male actors who turn out to be actually quite alright once they quit the shitty acting.
Let’s accept that magazines will close, that no magazine has a right to exist and that the loss of some will be offset by the creation of others. In fact let’s go further. Maybe some magazines that are starting to wane could be killed off by their makers.
