If you don’t like city life, why choose city living?

Here’s a great little film made by ‘Project X‘ about some of the issues faced by landlords/licensees in Digbeth and Moseley regarding complaints about noise in their venues…

I remember when the complaint against the Spotted Dog was made someone (who I don’t remember off hand) made the point that it was like buying a canalside apartment and then complaining about the water being a hazard…

Choose city living cause you like City life?! (purleease!!) –
and as Mr T might say… shuddupfool!

scissors, paper, rock…

I saw this on ffffound. It made me laugh, so I thought I’d share…

Perhaps best not to teach this classic game to the young ‘uns with this theory applied… ;)

Tree Drawings

This interesting series of images hands drawing power to trees in the wind.

Artist Tim Knowles – explains

A series of drawings produced using drawing implements attached to the tips of tree branches, the wind’s effects on the tree, recorded on paper. Like signatures each drawing reveals the different qualities and characteristics of each tree.

I really like this as a series of work, and the ‘work in progress’ images are brilliant too.

More of this and other interesting stuff (including Balloon drawings and Vehicle Motion drawings) on Tims website.

Spotted via the excellent Build blog.
