Low (fuzzy) on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Last night Mark Kozelek kept asking someone in the audience, who was taking photos with a camera that had some red light on the front, to stop, because it was distracting him. Eventually he launched into a (half joking) little rant about people who have to capture the event instead of just being there, so they can put it on their MySpace page and “get it out there man!”

Luckily I’d already decided that I wouldn’t bother trying to take any pictures, so hadn’t got my camera out for once. I didn’t see many people taking pictures after that!

I was going to say I saw one not so long ago in Holborn tube, but it appears “not so long ago” was 2004: www.flickr.com/photos/philgyford/1088149/

Don’t know if it’s still there.

I’m loving the podcasts, but any chance of tracklistings for them? It’d make life just that little bit easier and more lovely. Ta!

Meish dot org » I see famous people. Everywhere.

Weird; I just thought I saw an elderly, white-haired David Caruso carrying shopping bags from Barbican Waitrose.

This week I’ve also seen Alan Rickman (shopping on Marylebone High St) and Aaron Eckhart (in Charlotte St Hotel).

Meish dot org » Things my new commute has taught me #1: not all seats are equal

It also depends on what you expect the future pattern of tube usage to be. I get on at Barbican travelling west and know that if all the seats are taken (as is usual) that two stops later at King’s Cross, some seats will always become free.

Knowing that I won’t have to stand for long, I’d go for 7 and 8 or the 6 between the two sets of seats — NOT the 6 at the end of the carriage which only leaves me within reach of half as many seats.

Also, which of those areas I get on at depends on how many competitors there are already stationed there. I’d happily give up a possibility of getting seat 1 or 2 if I knew it was pretty certain I’d get a normal seat by standing at position 6.

Why is my head full of this!?

Barbican Flats on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

These are part of the Golden Lane Estate, rather than the Barbican Estate. By the same architects, but before the Barbican development.
