    Run actors’ showcases at Soho Theatre twice a year.

  2. A Typographic Survey of the City of London on Vimeo

    Lovely little video about the typography used in public throughout the City. Only criticism: sound recording is very poor quality. Otherwise, fab. (via Blech)

  3. Twee as Fuck

    Fanzine, monthly London club night, record label. Looks great. (Warning: the naughty page plays music when it loads.)

  4. Home ‎(Barbican restaurants‎)

    Wiki for restaurants local to the Barbican.

  5. West End Whingers

    I’m enjoying this blog’s theatre reviews. Intelligent but down to earth and nothing too obscure.

  6. Remember to breathe: Catching up a bit

    I’m loving Eric’s account of being at LISPA. Nicely written and very reflective. He’s the father of someone I was there with until July, and is now doing the course himself!

  7. Photographic collection homepage from London transport museum

    More than 16,000 historical photos of London, nicely browsable. You can even add comments to each one. Would be nice if they enlarged bigger, but otherwise fab.

  8. The School Of Life - Homepage

    “A new cultural enterprise based in central London offering intelligent instruction on how to lead a fulfilled life.” A religion without religion? Intriguing. (via Kottke)

  9. HS_LicensedVenueList.pdf (application/pdf Object)

    City of London venues licensed for weddings.

  10. JPMorgan plans Europe HQ in Canary Wharf - International Herald Tribune

    Yay, they’ve ditched plans for their massive HQ on London Wall, which would have destroyed some of the public highwalks. (Three weeks old.)

  11. BBC News | England | London | Smithfield market plans refused

    A couple of weeks old. Phew. I’m not against redevelopment if it’s not going to be more glass offices and same-old shops.

  12. Last Call, Bohemia: Entertainment & Culture: vanityfair.com

    Christopher Hitchens on gentrification, New York’s West Village, London’s Soho, etc. (via Kottke, yes I’m catching up on a lot of Kottke)

  13. LRB · Iain Sinclair: The Olympics Scam

    Very good long article on the 2012 London Olympics and its effect on East London. I was getting won over by the Olympics until this reminded me how I really feel.

  14. Frobisher Crescent : Coming Soon

    Work has started on 69 new studio, 1, 2 and 3 bed flats in the Barbican. Pointless un-informative Flash site.

    Idea for public art project: Brass markings on roads, pavements, buildings, etc. that mark the path of the rivers that are now hidden. (via Ted Mills)

    A thing from Arup that would be directly up the street of me eight years ago. And maybe sometime in the future. (via City of Sound)

  17. Corporation of London - Development & planning - Planning applications

    Proposal to create a brand new flat at the bottom of one of the Barbican towers, in a “void space”. See the PLANNING REPORT for some pics.

  18. CR Blog » Blog Archive » The Disappearing World of Soho’s Independent Record Shops

    I was on Berwick St the other day, but didn’t go down far enough to see the demolition opposite Somerfield. I so hope they hang on, but then I buy MP3s over CDs whenever I can, so… (via Alan Connor)

  19. Vote Match

    Help to decide who to vote for in the London elections. For me it says: Paddick, Livingstone, Left List, Greens… Still hard to decide. (via Haddock)

  20. Your London - Living

    “This website lets you search for food businesses across London to find out the hygiene rating they achieved from their last food hygiene inspection.” Am I Being Poisoned Or Not? (via Haddock)

  21. BSA Actor Training

    Part-time courses in London from somewhere I haven’t heard of. (I keep meaning to collate such places in a post. One day.)

  22. We Are The Lambeth Boys

    Really, really lovely 1959 documentary by Karel Reisz about young men and women at a London youth club. Fascinating for both similarities and differences to now. Do watch. 49 mins.

  23. Cityofsound: Robin Hood Gardens is not the same as a digital model of Robin Hood Gardens

    Dan Hill’s excellent summary of the protest going on over plans to demolish the London housing estate. I hope they renovate rather than destroy.

  24. GeeKyoto2008 - 17 May 2008

    Just booked my ticket. Clever people getting together at the Conway Hall “to discuss the future and how we’ll live in it.”

  25. MySociety » Travel-time maps

    Very, very tasty interactive London maps looking at travel times and house prices. (via Haddock)

    I’ve been meaning to look up the story behind the letters I cycle past every day, and a photo by Alice prompted me to do so.

  27. Demonstration at St Pancras International, 14 - 11- 2007 — Camden Cycling Campaign

    One of the downsides of the new station: stupid little bike racks (obviously designed years ago by someone who never used a bike) a long way from anywhere useful.

  28. YouTube - Today’s Special 1 - Tea Rooms

    Lovely, too-short film about a now-closed caff in London. See also part 2 (New Piccadilly) and 3 (Eldon Street). Criminal that these places are all disappearing. (via Haddock)

  29. Moving Target: Cyclist-killing lorry driver fined £300

    Yes, the lorry driver must feel awful, but he wasn’t looking where he was going while steering an HGV round a corner. Only a 300 quid fine for killing someone!? Motorists get away with so much while driving dangerous machines.

  30. London Print Studio - courses

    Would love to do this if I found more hours in the day. Was thinking more of lino/wood cuts though. (via Rodcorp)

  31. Kultureflash - Headlines from London

    Nice looking online mag of interesting things to do in London. Not that I’ll get round to many of them. (via Haddock)

  32. Wahaca - Mexican market eating

    New Mexican place on Chandos Place in Covent Garden. Haven’t been. Yet.

  33. Memoryshare

    The Time When, which I built as an prototype for the BBC, has now been re-done internally as Memoryshare.

  34. Mucho Mas: the finest hand-rolled burritos - new Mexican restaurant in Islington, London

    Yay, opening on Upper Street in August. I also need to check out the Mexican place on Exmouth Market.

  35. Coudal Partners - The 2012 Olympic Logo: A Rant: London Broil

    I hate the ‘London’ text, and I’m *slightly* nervous about it overall, but generally I agree with every point here. By 2012 the logo will be a familiar friend and few people will hate it. Certainly better than the usual naff Olympic logos. (via Haddock)

  36. Skoob Homepage

    Skoob Books (good second hand bookshop) is back at the Brunswick Centre at last.

  37. London’s lack of Mexican (Phil Gyford: Writing)

    Someone is looking to get involved in “the next big growth market” of Mexican/Latin American food with “funding/strategic development” help.

    Thoroughly scathing review by the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment of the now rejected plans for the Barbican’s Milton Court.

    Acting school in London that a friend is currently at.

    Excellent — the proposed plan to redevelop the Barbican’s Milton Court has been “sent back” by the planning committee.

  41. All Discussions - London Fixed Gear & Single Speed

    Bicycles. Mostly seem to know each other from real life. Uses Vanilla.

  42. Hide & Seek

    Pervasive gaming weekend based on the South Bank this weekend. Sounds a lot of fun; I’d go if I was in town. (via Haddock)

  43. BBC On This Day | 24 | 1956: Plans unveiled for homes in Barbican

    Wonderful video from 1956 showing the site now occupied by the Barbican, and a gentleman demonstrating an incomprehensible perspex model of an early plan.

  44. Building - 4861 - Milton Court - London

    Current plan: destroy unique building (even if its beauty is debatable) and replace with dull glass tower. At least it’s residential and Guildhall School rooms, but still, it hugely annoys me.

  45. This time, only world class will do - Building Design

    “If Milton Court on the Barbican Estate must go, its replacement has to be much, much better.” Current plans are very dull and, worse, destroy the current walkway link to the Barbican and surrounding buildings.

  46. Good dim sum in London? | Ask MetaFilter

    Lots of places I’ve never heard of (which isn’t surprising). (via ChrisDodo)
