According to wikipedia, authors use footnotes "to escape the limitations imposed on the word count of various academic and legal texts which do not take into account footnotes. Aggressive use of this strategy can lead the text to be seen as affected by what some people call "footnote disease".

footnote disease...hmmmmm, that's a bit weird.


Drawn a total blank

on how to write a conclusion right now. I'm all of a dither so that's not particularly helpful. Went to the printers who said they couldn't print on my paper (even though they most probably could) and that CS4 won't work for them so i have to go BACK later in the week to print all my shiz and i have loads of stuffs left to dooooooo. It's as if they know i have a deadline and just want to make it really hard for me.

On a brighter note, we made jelly with lemonade as the rowntree's advert said. It had better be good. Bombass and Parr are genii with jelly, making them into architectural delights and events like an architectural punchbowl and a scratch and sniff cinema. brilliant.

ohhh links links links. back to work i go...


why oh why...

...does my cv and pdf combo look so baaaaaaaaaaaad. Actually no, I quite like it but i think i shouldn't because every page looks different.

I am, however, yielding to my penchant for bad taste and all things tack for my zine for the London Zine Symposium. Many bits flying around my head but hopefully i'll set them down tomorrow. Here's a cheeky teaser...


Sexy People

I don't care if it's old news! I hadn't been on the Sexy People blog in a while and the few minutes of renewed joy it gave me, as im so so nearly at the end of my essay but really not, were invaluable.
i want to paste my walls with these beauties


Less than two weeks until the deadline and end of my first year at Camberwell...and we've got builders in. nice one guys, nice one. although, to be fair, he's just been hanging out in his van reading the sun for an hour or so.



NICK CLEGG... don't do it. Conservatives won't love you like you want them to.

on a brighter note, my mac should be arriving tomorrow. huzzah!


Faber & Faber

I've got my eye on a delightful hardback set of 6 poetry classics Faber & Faber have released for their 80th birthday, including Sylvia Plath and John Betjeman, each with a cover and end-paper created by a different printmaker; Paul Catherall, Peter Lawrence, Joe McLaren, Clare Curtis, Heaney Nick Morley and Mark Hearld.

They're all absoloutly gorgeous and i love that F&F are promoting works by these amazing artists. Nicely enough, i've found an article covering this on the creative review website with individual close ups of some of the books and their end-papers to whet your appetites.
