Lively Legacy of Lombard Street

In Part 1 we looked at the murals that grace many of the buildings in our neighbourhood. In Part 2 we looked at public sculpture that commemorates historical events and people. In this post, Part 3, we look at sculpture in and around the neighbourhood that doesn’t neatly fit into any category and where you, […]

A Mixed Review

A few years ago, I set out to watch every Best Picture winner dating back to The Godfather (1972). For some odd reason, after completing that monumental and occasionally boring task, I felt the need to become a true Oscar historian and watch them all. Forty-four movies later, I can say that I have. Essentially, I watched The Greatest Show on Earth so you wouldn’t have to. Without further ado:

Nyah, I seen better. The LIFE IN HOLLYWOOD featurettes offer a lot of useful views of the film community in the twenties, and a lot of heavily staged vignettes of movie celebrities going about their business. The [TOP DIRECTOR/ACTOR] FORGETS HIS STUDIO PASS routine seems to have been a popular trope. Maurice Tourneur and Lloyd […]

Real prince Harry and real Meghan Markle do not match at all. I am sorry. Meghan Markle did a level of plastic surgery that should be illegal: these women marry too high for their natural value; Plastic Meghan she doesn’t behave like a beautiful girl, she behaves for what she is naturally, sorry to say […]

The Duchess of Sussex has shown her support for a campaign by black academics and students to "decolonize" university programs in the UK.

Being Boomer - A Writer's Journal

What makes someone a writer? My university creative writing lecturer (and successful author), Susan Mitchell, says a writer writes always. I guess I have written always, though only creatively in spurts and dashes. Most of my output has been generated in the many and varied jobs that I’ve put my hand to, so I thought […]
