Cat’s Cradle At The Courtyard Theatre

Cat’s Cradle is a delightful adaptation of Curt Vonnergut novel, Cat’s Cradle (go figure)… I had never read the book, but a good friend of mine who i went to see the production with had and he was very curious as to how this wacky plot would translate onto a stage. Well, it did, i really recommend this play to every one! The set was amazing and simple, the actors were great, the story was hilarious and all in all it made me piddle in my little pants. Here’s the link to the Courtyard theatre with the blurb about the pice and the ticket sails and what not about the whole shinaniganz.

Easter egg hunt today at 3.00 come along!

I know it’s raining today and it’s very grm and no one want to be out. But There’s going to be a really fun easter egg hunt today starting at three at Haggerston Park by the hackney road entrance. Every one come along and bring some painted eggs, sweetes, booze or what ever gets you through your usual Easter weekend.

this is so bizarre


this film looks deep

It’s a documentary set in the future about climate change and the effects its had on the world. So weird to see the millenium dome under water. Dont dismiss this film as “another one of those end of the world films” because watch the trailer it looks dark. I dont think its going to be out in big cinemas but all those independant ones are already showing it ^_^

“The originator of this symbolic image goes by the name of Alberto Diaz Gutierrez aka Alberto Korda, which at the time was Fidel Castro’s photographer. The photographer captured the image during a mass funeral on March 5th, 1960, a day after a French cargo ship loaded with arsenals had exploded in the city’s harbor causing the death of 80 Cubans.

The picture seen above entitled,”Guerrillero Heroico”, by Korda himself, is the original picture of Che (with a man anterior to him and a palm tree in the background), which was later cropped isolating and focusing on Che. Without any publication for a year, the image hung outside of Korda’s studio visible to only the by passers until it met the eyes of the Leftist and intellectual named Giangiacomo Feltrinelli. Korda allowed him to republish it while giving him two 8 x 10 cm prints more as a gift.

Unfortunately, Che happened to die a few months after in 1967 and around that time was when Feltrinelli started distributing copies throughout Italy as well as using it for the cover of his “Diario Del Che In Bolivia” book.

Despite the rapid popularity it gained throughout Europe, Korda gained no royalties for the use of his image and received little kudos due to Feltrinelli’s failure to credit Alberto. Korda died in 2001 leaving this world happy to know his image was used as a revolutionary banner.”

A roadblock through Notting Hill usually means it’s Carnival time again. Last Wednesday however, it meant that the streets were flooded with what looked deatheaters (see Harry Potter) from afar. On closer inspection, it was people gathered from all the middle Eastern countries marching for world peace. In particular, peace in the middle east, yo.

I’m all for protesting for peace (is that an oxymoron?) but maybe before you go around carrying signs with phrases like “human rights” you shouldn’t have the women taking part in the protest seperated by police escorts and a rope. Just a thought.
