Tom Brosseau

I saw Tom play support for Cat Power last night and thought he was worth a mention. I can’t say he rocked, he kind of folk’d, or maybe kind of country folk blues’d. He know his roots. If you don’t listen to anything else, listen to ‘rock island line’. If it does nothin’ for you then you have no soul, no really, you have no soul.

Bobby Baker

‘Performance artist Bobby Baker explores issues through art and performance which radically affect our daily lives. Subject matter ranges through health, shopping and motherhood, seemingly mundane subjects which are explored in an idiosyncratic and innovative performance style. The work is performed in a wide range of spaces from theatres to kitchens.’ artsadmin

Check out the How to Live videos, excellent.

Early warning sound mirrors

A forerunner of Radar, acoustic mirrors were built on the south and northeast coasts of England between about 1916 and the 1930s. The ‘listening ears’ were intended to provide early warning of incoming enemy aeroplanes and airships about to attack coastal towns. With the development of faster aircraft the sound mirrors became less useful, as an aircraft would be within sight by the time it had been located, and radar finally rendered the mirrors obsolete.

The listening ears at Denge near Dungeness in Kent are probably the best known of the various examples built.

Elisabeth Frink

Andew, this is an example of the 'Frink heads' I was talking about earlier today.

Sol LeWitt, a Master Of the Art of the Idea

You can feast on Sol LeWitt. The drawings he produced are mentally delicious. What makes them so delicious, so pleasing to the mind, is that he didn’t have to draw them. That’s because the artist, who died at age 78 on Sunday, employed what one might call the conceptual cookbook method. The Washington Post
