Smashing photography from Ireland at the Irish Times website. Exposure 1999. Catch photographer Matt Kavanagh ripping off Anton Corbijn’s world famous shot of Miles Davis, in this portrayal of Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. And this wonderful thang.
Talking about Anton Corbijn… apparently in February 2000 his own site will be up at www.corbijn.co.uk. Rejoice! I’ve been fortunate to meet Anton on a few occasions here in Holland and abroad, and eventhough he is one of those stick insects – see below – , I think he’s a super bloke (Quote from the interview: “Have you ever photographed people who aren’t famous? ‘Yes,” Corbijn answers with a knowing smile, “but every time I do, they become famous.”). Of course it helped that he granted me the use of some of his work in my book for free. [ Right, that’s just about enough namedropping there, thank you. ]
This is great (for people like me who used to read ‘the history of the English language’ for fun). BBC 4’s ‘The routes of English‘ looks at the origins of accents and dialects in English. With real audio examples.
Stick insects, that’s what they are. Prol’s only 5’1”.
FREE internet was the buzzword in ’99. And then they liberate it. ‘to surf and protest’
An OS, a full windowing system, an HTML 3.2 browser, an embedded web server, an Internet dialer, TCP/IP, and more onto a
SINGLE 1.44M floppy. It’s fabulous. But what can I do with it?
