  Liverpool One to get decent street names

Thomas Steers, originally uploaded by new folder.

Pleased to see that Liverpool One has avoided the pseudo-aspirational names typical of new city centre developments and come up with some proper street names for the new streets around Paradise Street.

Shame about the cringeworthy Bling Building..

  Walking Birmingham - Vicarage Road to Hall Green

View Larger Map.

Experiment with embedding google map of recent walk, it took a bit too long to put this together to bother with regularly. Here's the same photographs in black using simple viewer and flickr viewer.

  SXSWi podcasts and the wisdom of twittering crowds

SXSW Mark Zuckerberg Keynote - Dancing Erupts, originally uploaded by b_d_solis. (CC) Brian Solis, www.briansolis.com, bub.blicio.us.

Good to see the South by Southwest interactive audio trickling through online. As jealous as I am of everyone from the Midlands who went over (and I am very jealous!), I often think that a conference packed with the likes of these above is the last place on earth I'd want to spend time. Listening to the keynote interview with Mark Zuckerberg they're interrupting, it seems a perfectly reasonable and relatively interesting interview from an interviewer who clearly knows her subject very well.

Richard Wilson on Turning the Place Over

It's great to see Liverpool Biennial starting to put interesting content online this year through their Youtube channel and Flickr account

Really interesting interview, including Wilson's thoughts on the use of mobile phones, digital photography and the internet as a gallery space.

I've always found 'Turning the Place Over' disappointing but that might well be because I had a preconceived idea of what it would be, I'd probably feel diffently if I just came across it one day.

 
  Bluecoat Arts Centre re-opening, Liverpool

Wasn't in Liverpool this weekend for the re-opening of the Bluecoat Arts Centre, but who needs to be when you've got the Moronic Inferno documenting it?

Photographer Rui Guerra's collection of portraits taken recently at Mello Mello in Liverpool (including this portrait of Gregory Scott-Gurner of The Art Organisation).

 
  Birmingham architecture and the B1G idea

Selfridges, Birmingham, originally uploaded by new folder.

Architecture in Birmingham, an episode from the B1G idea podcast. Think I'd prefer it without the background music though (having said that though it is funny when they do things like add a car horn after the mention of traffic problems).

  There is a real energy in the studio
Can't find a way to embed the video, but here's the official transcript of the terrible new Cadbury's Flake advert.

We're in Maida Vale studios.

We see Joss Stone. She doesn't know we're watching, but we can see she is recording her next hit single with her band. There is a real energy in the studio.

We see Joss taking a break in recording and she finds a Flake bar on the side. Half jokingly, she starts singing a tune that is more famous than her - the Flake jingle.

Only the crumbliest, flakiest chocolate…

Her singing is so effortless and pure it makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. As she finishes she unwraps the Flake, has a bite, and smiles to herself.

She then goes back to work.

  Police in London launch photography crackdown

Two conflicting stories this morning, D'log reporting (last paragraph) an MP urging the 'Home Secretary to issue a response following a spate of clashes between police and photographers taking pictures in public places'.

Then Boing Boing has news of the Metropolitan Police's latest campaign, urging the public to report 'odd' photographers to their apparently 'experienced' officers.

  "The Kiss", Rodin, Tate Liverpool

Two great exhibitions in Tate Liverpool at the moment - Niki de Saint Phalle on the top floor and items from the permanent collection in The Twentieth Century: how it looked and how it felt , including Rodin's 'The Kiss'.

 
  Queue for the Beatles Story

Queue for the Beatles Story, originally uploaded by new folder.

Don't think I've ever seen a queue here before, I think Liverpool's going to be heaving in the summer.
