FETEY

A little app, a lot of london.

*****

Today Instagram reminded me of the Horniman Museum.

It was doing a fetey thing where there were all the feathers and fancy of carnival.

But 1st I had to go to the beautiful aquarium which I love.

It’s only small but it has…

Some words…

Starfish, poisonous frogs, butterflies (I know… Cheating), four eyed fish, seahorses, jellyfish, crabs and anemones.

Lovely,

Cheers,

“HE IS TOOO FINE”

“The main actor.”

The first thing to be said is the audience were rowdy.

Blackta @youngvictheatre.

Well there was a lot going on.

At one point someone took there shirt off and it was like a pantomime.

I definitely detected sexual hollering.

Ok not like a panto.

******

A good double header is Tate Modern Late Fridays and The Young Vic.

See they’re close.

Maybe some kind of beverage/meal if you have someone else to consider.

Or you can meetup through the almighty meetup.

*****

We are sitting on the tube tapping thinking whether it was good.

It was good.

It was gritty and urban like yours truely.

I think daddy was a bit bewildered.

There was big themes and shit and swearing and shit.

love,

GET IDEAS

How to summarise a lost weekend of spoken word, sadness and nick clegg…

Unrelated.

Like this

A) guildhall lates are lovely lates. Get ideas from meetup and float round antisocially on your own. Theres an amphitheatre dontcha know.

B) tv recording of 'the agenda' good, free and theres no need to be lonely with the internet. Find other lonely people to do stuff with.

Im a dog of few words.

Like Ezra Pound with worms.

Look it up.

Theres no excuse to be uncultured with the internet.

Love,

Harleyxx

THE GAMES PEOPLE PLAY 002: PLAN B

You need a Plan B.

If Plan A goes wrong or you are bored of it.

We love Scrabble as much as the next man.

But you can have too much of a good thing.

So we’ve taken up Chess.

Yes, meetup.

Though the thing is… all these things you can do online but particularly with chess and to an extent with scrabble the face to face gives value to games.

We just wanted to make that point.

Then spend your life on your iwhatever,

See you later,

Love,

Harleyxx

YOU’RE SPENT IN 25 MINUTES…

Saville Row.

Stylish Staffy about town.

Two galleries.

7min from Oxford Circus.

1) Hauser and Wirth. Gallermo Kuitca.
We thought “Oo they look like maps.”
And lo and behold in the little leaflet it says they’re from maps.
Maps are great art.
Yes, yes, yes the tube map.
Some words: tubey, mountainy, no cock, vast, ducks, no fanny, dissolving into abstraction, no boobs.

Hop over the road…

this is 5 minute art…

If you were going to writing after or something you could fit it in…

2) Ordovas. Calder.
some words: mobiles, no boobs, playful, no cock, shadows, no fanny, jingle jangle, primary colours.

25 min and you are back on the tube all imaged up with a place to go…

Il let you know how crap he was in the quiz.

Its a league… you know… I told you.

love,

Harleyxx

and god we loved her

SPEED FRIENDING

Ok kids… Speed friending.

2 pounds.

We were fascinated by the phrase.

In some ways its better than the concept of speed dating and in some ways not.

(Not that we’ve ever been speed dating… We were loved).

So the good things are… U move round… Ala speed dating… And its groups of 4ish so less pressured.

However we met a fair variety of interesting people and the kinda question we had was… Well what happens next… It should have taken a record of who u liked basically.

The event was part of a social group from meetup so essentially i suppose ur meant to go to another (paid) event.

I think it could work well as a discrete thing but unfortunately even in the vast ocean of meetup meetups this is the only one.

Half a mind to start one.

3 Colin Stars,

Love,

Harleyxx

THEIR LOSS

The @BritishLibrary.

Fuck iv got a lot of books to read.

And im still struggling with my “Who’s who in the archers.”

Chilled coffeey wifiiiy free laptop parking space.

With similar if you sit with a Write Together @meetup.

Theyre everywhere… Like dr dre headphones or collapsing european economies…

Then, should you fancy, potter down to the ‘Writing Britain’ exhibition.

They say: “Novels, poetry and plays can shape our perceptions and transform our places through imagination.”

Time out says: “…” Similar.

We @thedogwhatblogs say: “A tenner is a lot for an excuse for them to get their dusty books out.” It is interesting and there are headphones and videos. Go if your a concession…

I tried to pretend I was a guide dog declaring: “The boy wonder @albiestar is blind to all reason” but they weren’t impressed.

Their loss.

Love,

Harleyxx

25% MORE THRILLING

Hello there.

Today i am telling you about bookcrossing.

Remember when I told you about free book shops and you couldnt control your excitement?

Well its like that only about 25% more thrilling.

Mildly tediously you register finished books on tinternet and then “set them free” as if they were wild animals or children. This means a) leaving them somewhere b) giving them to someone c) bringing them to a meetup.

Our old friend meetup.com again.

You also then register the ones u acquire.

Im not really selling it.

Bookswapping really but following their journey.

Im going off the idea describing it.

Its cool. Honest.

Love,

Harleyxx

LOOK AT ME

Look at me blogging again!

Today me and the boy wonder went on a photo walk.

It was almost so unbelievably exciting that we exploded.

Because it combined photography with art galleries.

Which could be any day.

But its good to have an excuse.

STEP ONE… Instagram…

Now available on Android as well as Apple.

http://instagr.am/

If we detach our photosnobcircuits there’s a lot that can be achieved with this little app and an iphone and even more with a few more little apps.

We like…

http://www.fxphotostudioapp.com/

and…

http://picfx.co/

No ones paying us! They should… i need to move off basics dog food… its soul destroying.

STEP 2…

There are lovely people like you who are very fond of taking pix with their phones.

http://www.meetup.com/Instagram/London-GB/

STEP 3 IS…

LONDON

There are 1000s of galleries in this city providing incredible eye food for free.

Today we went on a tour with this…

South London Art Map

 

 

 

South London Art Map

But we love East London too.

They reasonably suggest a donation for a bit of extra insight and convenience but really…

Art Galleries in London… Time Out London

Fly my prettys!
