A Withington architecture wander 3


When I saw that the scaffolding had started to go up around the White Lion I decided I should get some pictures of it before it went the way of Cine City.

As I was out, I figured I’d take a few more pictures around Withington. Mostly I shot decorative bits and pieces-

I know it’s not architecture, but I was impressed with this tree.


And finally, a few institutions.

These are amongst my first attempts to use my camera’s raw format and edit them in Photoshop Elements. Hopefuly I shall improve as I take more. I’ll also be wandering further afield.

Who the fuck is Nick Griffin?

A third of people asked by the website MyVoucherCodes said a picture of the BNP leader showed Peter Griffin. The makers of Family Guy haven’t commented on their character’s sideline as the leader of a bunch of racist arseholes.

In the same survey more people recognised a non-entity who’s best known for marrying a reality TV star than did the Prime Minister. It’s possible that Brown prefers it that way. And, if I’m honest, I’d have a hard time naming Nick Clegg if you showed me a picture of him.

Trailer Time

King Crab Attack. I’m not sure this is a real film. If it is it’s a torrent-and-watch-after-a-couple-of-beers movie. (via io9)

Clash of the Titans. Release the Kraken!

Universal Soldier: Regeneration. Straight to dvd goodness from JCVD.

Ong Bak 3. Which reminds me, I haven’t seen Ong Bak – The Beginning yet.

I’ve removed the Kick Ass trailer because it started automatically every time the page opened, which was annoying. I may search out a version that’s better behaved.

Harlan: In the shadow of Jew Suss. Powerful stuff. Not an Orange Wednesday film, that’s for sure.

The Scenesters.

Cop Out. Directed by Kevin Smith, of whom I’m a fan. The previous trailer made it look dire. This one had me swinging between, “Yeah, it could be fun.” and “Oh dear, it’s going to be dire.”
