eXTReMe Tracker
Monday, August 14, 2006
The BBC's new interiors show, Home, has turned out to be hugely disappointing. Trailed by an intriguing series of clips, it promised a Martin Parr-esque insight into what people felt about their homes, presented in a straightforward, calm way (check the Signs of the Times gallery on Parr's flash website for an idea of how this might work; the TV series that accompanied these images, directed by Nicholas Barker, was fabulous and has never been equalled) / The Measures Taken ponders The Sex Appeal of the Inorganic: is true Modernism nothing more than a fevered, half-remembered dream?

Crashing back down to earth with a wail: the Gina Ford debate will never die / the clock museum is extensive. Related, Clock Watching in Prague / we first visited Endangered Machinery about 2 years ago. It's still there, and still wonderful, a (vast) collection of original Industrial and Industrial Heritage Photography / Astronautix is a space weblog, very opinionated: 'If government regulators had insisted that air travel be as safe in 1930 as safe as it is today, ocean liners would still be the only form of intercontinental transportation. And it is government's insistence, on behalf of potential passengers who will never get any say in the matter, that spaceflight be so safe that it will never be implemented.'

The Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is reputed to contain the remains of a hapless man, walled up alive during construction in the thirteenth century; a means of protecting the structure for ever more. I remember as a child reading with horror the tale of a riveter accidentally sealed into the The Great Eastern, a great ship with a troubled history. According to that lengthy account, no skeletons were ever found once the ship was broken up, but the legend persists, as they do with many major projects that are felt to be 'cursed' in any way. An under construction photograph and painting of the ship being built on the banks of the Thames.

Yale's Manuscripts and Archives collection has a useful image database / fine Moomin-filled post / first went here in 2003: an illustrated speculative timeline of future technology and social change. Admirably enthusiastic. Tomorrow's World did a similar thing back in the 70s / a lovely description of P.G.Wodehouse's working methods / a large video illustrating a CGI unmanned Mars mission / more CGI: see yourself slimmer, a terrible, terrible idea.

Ryan Terry's Portrait machine / George Hardie's Rules, an exhibition at Vitsoe (who also produce mouth-watering image selections of their famous Dieter Rams' designed shelving system) / that giant scale map in China attracts some press interest. Everyone is still clueless, though / the fabulous Alfa 90 had a briefcase integrated in the dashboard / worth revisiting: the Graphical User Interface gallery.

Walking the Circle Line, a London journey / the same river, a weblog / Andy Piper's weblog / depressing; why you shouldn't walk in America / a history of wrecking trucks / there's a blogger upgrade on the way: try the beta / remember all that leaked AOL search data? Someone has mined it for 'amusement purposes'. A lot of this is terribly nsfw, and not at all PC, but it seems that many people communicate with search engines as if they're having a one-sided conversation with some unseen deity. To be honest, the pages after this one get a bit grim.

Bands' on-stage setups / The Cramps - Live at Napa State Mental Hospital. They're actually playing London right this second, so there's synchronicity for you / The classic Rendezvous, now with Google Maps guidance, via Autoblog / 60s and 70s Eyecandy, kids books from days gone by (via PCL Linkdump) / Imagining the 10th dimension, via Sachs.
