(The Original) Journey To Avebury

Have been off work for a few days after a short spell in hospital, and boredom has led me to trawl the web looking for nuggets to fill the time. I stumbled across this great little film by Derek Jarman 'A Journey To Avebury' that I hadn't seen in quite some time. Shot in 16mm film with a gorgeous yellow filter, which adds a beautiful, painterly and other-worldly feel to the pictures that sums up what is lacking in a visit to this special place today.

Take a 10 minute time travel into the past. You'll not see the daytime monument so empty these days.

Soulwax - Homage to Bowie

With all the noise and commotion around the re-emergence of pop's chameleon king, via the soon to be released LP 'The Next Day',  Soulwax (2Many DJ's) have produced a great little fan video of all things Bowie.
It showcases the better moments in the Thin White Dukes career, highlighting those kooky 'Bowie' characters and exploring the man's genius at self reinvention and re-interpretation.
If your a Bowie fan, have a watch, and if your not, have a watch anyway. There are some wonderful ideas and images cobbled together from Bowie's extraordinary career.
