The LEGO Movie.
Whilst I like the idea of a LEGO film in theory, this just looks awful.
Fuck Buttons - The Red Wing
The new Fuck Buttons single gets the bonkers and sinister video treatment it deserves.
With a lack of grandiose annoucement the entire Pink Floyd back catalogue has cropped up on Spotify. How marvellous. He’s one of the best ones.

Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, his follow-up to the peerless District 9, continues to look like it will land on that line between amazing and mental.
No Age - C’mon Stimmung

A collection of monuments in the Former Yugoslavia commissioned by Tito in the 1970s and 80s at the sites of WWII battles, or sites of concentration camps. Designed by some of the country’s finest sculptors and architects they once attracted millions of visitors a year. Now they mostly sit in a dilapidated state. Their futuristic design coupled with their brutalist construction renders them haunting.
If you’re interested in these, I can’t recommend the book CCCP: Cosmic Communist Constructions Photographed highly enough. It features many massively weird concrete constructions various Soviet states and their allies created during the Cold War.
A postcard from 1904 illustrates my manor. If you’re familiar with Glasgow this is looking down Dumbarton Road from the railway bridge towards Crow Road. Certainly looks more pleasant than it does now.
