The Eagleman Stag

Under - Art, Inspiration, Media

The Eagleman Stag is 2011 BAFTA award winning short film by director/writer Mikey Please. It’s mostly made out of some strange white stuff, found in the back of a stress cushion. Mikey worked with his brother Bendict Please who composed the soundtrack and score, as well as the vocal talents of cult actor David Cann who lends his voice.

If you repeat the word ‘fly’ for long enough it sounds like you’re saying ‘life’. This is of no help to Peter. His answers lie in the brain of a beetle.

Nomadism

Under - Art, Inspiration, Literature, Media, Photography, Poetry

Traveller, photographer and cinematographer Marty Mellway compiled this truly inspiring piece of work with clips from his travel videos. The end result is a fascinating fusion of music, poetry and photography – a very intoxicating mix for creative and curious minds!

I use photography and cinema to capture what I see and feel. I live a lifestyle of almost perpetual motion only stopping for short breaks before heading back on the road. I travel as much and as often as I can. My films are a tribute to this incredible world and everything it shares with us. I’m so inspired by the idea of cinema and photography, the very act of capturing light energy and making it mean something is just so incredible and profound – Marty Mellway

… and yes, below is the beautiful poem in this video by Lord Byron (George Gordon) 1788–1824 – narrated by Tom O’bedlam.

SO WE’LL GO NO MORE A ROVING

So, we’ll go no more a roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we’ll go no more a roving
By the light of the moon.

My inbox is my timeline …

Under - My Musings, Technology

While sifting through some old emails I realized that my inbox reflects most of my life – it is indeed my true timeline not what I made-up on Facebook!

I’ve been using Yahoo email since 1998 and Hotmail since 1996 if remember correctly (though I don’t get to use it much now) – both have documented my life ever since. I can see myself growing – my first job interview email, my appointments, meetings, plans, disappointments, happy moments … my conversations with my wife, and family, and friends. What I purchased/sold/owned or talked about over time. What I liked and shared and how I expressed my frustrations on numerous occasions. I can see my life recorded there, it is a real snapshot of my life albeit not that visual.

To Hotmail and Yahoo, you certainly missed something you always had with you!

Banksy’s identity remains unknown, but his work isn’t.

Banksy is a pseudonymous England-based graffiti artist, political activist, film director, and painter.

His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine irreverent dark humour with graffiti done in a distinctive stencilling technique. Such artistic works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world.

Banksy’s work was born of the Bristol underground scene which involved collaborations between artists and musicians. According to author and graphic designer Tristan Manco and the book Home Sweet Home, Banksy “was born in 1974 and raised in Bristol, England. The son of a photocopier technician, he trained as a butcher but became involved in graffiti during the great Bristol aerosol boom of the late 1980s… more
