Here I share a variety of content. Lately I have been using this site to create a collection, scrapbook or journal of photos I have been taking with my mobile (skies, details from vinyl sleeves from my record collection, also some bookish stuff).
Unless it is indicated otherwise, the photos posted here have been taken by me. I try to post the sky photos in real time. Sometimes other kinds of stuff also appear here.
In the past I have also used this site to share links to interesting open access content by other authors, but now I usually do that elsewhere.
"Here words have presence only in so much as they are (literally) illumined from behind, just as we attain identity only retroactively, through a kind of perpetual process of catching up to ourselves". -Keep, McLaughlin and Parmar, 1993-2000
There can be no doubt that in England the social war is already being waged. Everyone looks after his own interests and fights only for himself against all comers. Whether in doing so he injures those who are his declared enemies is simply a matter of selfish calculation as to whether such action be to his advantage or not. It no longer occurs to anybody to come to a friendly understanding with his neighbours. All differences of opinion are settled by threats, by invoking the courts, or even by taking the law into one’s own hands. In short, everyone sees in his neighbour a rival to be elbowed aside, or at best a victim to be exploited for his own ends.
