Abe Lincoln is a United fan [ok ok ok…FC United went a little crazy with their bar scarves in town, but YEAH LINCOLN FOR THE CAUSE. or something.]
Going to York next weekend, so i’m sure i will have some more important and more interesting content to share with the masses as i have been trying my best to stay under my rock and avoid the Parklife shitehawkery of the weekend.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
[Stan Chow’s excellent ram done for Lunar New Year as projected onto St Anne’s Church, St Anne’s Square, Manchester. view more of his work here. and buy a print or six.]
I’m kind of obsessed. no filter, just adjusted the white balance. Blackberry z10 while walking home from the bus. not bad. can’t complain. life is good.
The BBC Studios, Media City. Salford, UK. 30 October 2014.
I went on an adventure to Media City yesterday. ITV, BBC, an ice skating rink, and a TARDIS. There’s something so…lovely about glass buildings. Lovely seems so boring, but i don’t really know how else to describe it? glass buildings make me happy in general. -insert something about glass and the fragility of life- it’s nice for me, at least, to get out of the normal neighbourhoods that i see every single day and go to other places in the city…it’s funny that once you’re out and about that you realise how close everything is. Media City isn’t really that far from the city centre and right across the street from Old Trafford which is a little walk to the Tafford Centre. it kind of reminds me of Manhattan where everything seems so far apart on a map, but once you get stuck in and walking around, things are really closer than what you think they are.
Plus…we went across the way to the Lowry and bought chocolate bars as big as our faces at the Cadbury outlet because there’s a Cadbury outlet and because why not?
Back in April, I posted a picture of the Great Wheel of Manchester and I said that I couldn’t talk about it. Well…I can talk about it now because I live here. That’s right. The cat’s out of the bag. The big secret’s out. I’ve packed my bags and moved to Manchester and it’s wonderful. This is the view from my study / reading spot and honestly…who is going to complain? After all…based on this photo, I’ve clearly only moved to England for the weather 😀
Back in October i posted that picture, not knowing too much about this métro stop and it’s decorations, only that i was enamoured by it. this morning, one of the instagram accounts that i follow, loftgallery, posted the same stop this morning with the following description:
Kiosque des Noctambules by JEAN-MICHEL OTHONIEL In 2000, a century after Hector Guimard, Jean-Michel Othoniel transformed the Palais Royal-Musée du Louvre into the Kiosque des Noctambules: two crowns made of glass and aluminum conceal a bench designed for chance encounters in the sleepy city. #jeanmichelothoniel #frenchartist #france #louvre #palace #sleepycity #KiosquedesNoctambules

This is my puppy…Angel aka My Fluffy. She has been keeping me company during my recuperation from major knee surgery. She’s a Border Collie – Chow mix, and I love her to death.
Taken with my Blackberry Z10, which I love infinitely more than my iPhone 4s.
