“‘A dream,’ says Alex Trebek. ‘I have this dream where I’m sitting in a chair on a little hill in the middle of a field. The field, which is verdant and clovered, is covered with rabbits. They sit and look at me. There must be a million rabbits in that field. They all sit and look at me. Some of them lower their little heads to eat clover. But their eyes never leave me. They sit there and look at me, a million bunny rabbits, and I look back.’”
—David Foster Wallace, “Animals”

Massive Attack's 3D on Jean-Michel Basquiat
Great piece by 3D on our man Basquiat, yes him again.
3D admits “so the game was up for me with graffiti, because the police knew who I was.” Reminds us of the ‘friend of a friend’ who recently had the same problem, perhaps tagging law enforcement vehicles was leaving the clues a bit too close to home.
Good inspiring read about The Wild Bunch, collectives and art mixing with music and innovation…
Tagging the inside of the vehicle was how it ended up

Usman Haque : Messiness will inevitably arise in spite of smart cities
In the smart-city equivalent — “Grub City” — I see citizens mocking the homogenising of static urban data infrastructures and rejecting their bids to handle cities’ “super wicked” messes through reductivist approaches to data. What we decide to measure, how we decide to measure, and why we decide to measure — these questions are vital for Grub City citizens, who craft and perform data “badly” and “messily”, because that enables invention unanticipated by planners.

By popular request, here is Nex Tempo (we are assured that this is the title to the album version using a sample from Next To You). Once again best viewed by clicking Vimeo and HD.
I think Tempo has sampled the vocal loop from Next To You but under that is the sample from Beware The Changing Of The Wind by The Sleepwalker Brothers which was originally sampled by Seven and Five, if you get the picture.
For those of you who wanted visuals from the Tempo Solace night (please click Vimeo and select HD to get the full effect) - thanks to all and especially to Tempo Solace for letting us be involved.
looked great on every wall, especially the ceiling, still not sure how that works, can you also put up Next Tempo?
It was genuinely moving and intimidating at times when you were trying to work out which way was up!
