Courtauld Gallery, London

I was supposed to go see a Toulouse-Lautrec & Jane Avril exhibition (apart from some St Vitus Dance pictures from the Salpêtrière, it wasn't worth it) but ended up staring at the gorgeous ceilings and floors of the Courtauld. Magnificent and esoteric.

Japanese Divers

The amazingly talented and ever inspiring Amrei Hofstätter of Verticospuppets posted this on my Facebook wall the other day. Watch it - it's like Leni Riefenstahl only wetter and portrays human robotics at its finest.

Miners' Hymns

A few months ago, Sir Substrom was kind enough to share Jóhann Jóhannson/Bill Morrison's The Cause of Labour is the Hope of the World with me which visualises everything summarised by the term "epic" and I'm glad to say that the commentary-less documentary it serves as a trailer to, The Miners' Hymns, is now available on DVD from the BFI.

Take that, neofolk!

    Danke für den Verweis auf den Film von Bill Morrison. Ich bin im Umfeld der Bergbauregion aufgewachsen und finde die Montage der alten Aufnahmen ganz, ganz großartig.
