Ed Parsons refers to this, silly idea, its a bit like the dutch boy putting his thumb in the dyke, to prevent a tsunami coming his way at 500mph. Bad law, it will fail. Nice video on this:

If you're interested, you can visit the Barbican.

Saw a couple of documentaries about Detroit over the weekend, Requiem for Detroit and Martin Freeman goes to Motown. Note: these videos are only available for a limited period, and in the UK only. They also replayed Motor City is Burning, which I've seen before. Anyway, reminded me of this:





Also if you are interested in Beards, have a look at this lot!

Monday Blues cure

Double header today - firstly an animation I saw a while back, and wanted to find again. Called blind spot, found it by googling 'blind spot animation':




Blind spot - Animation Gobelins from tiry_73 on Vimeo.



Also some music, had this going through my mind over the weekend for some reason - 'the wind cries mary hendrix':





Very - reflective.
