The 'Library'

When Grapejuice left the house he told me he was going to the library.... I found him here...

The Long Now in San Francisco

One of the highlights of my recent time in California this autumn was a visit to the Long Now foundation.

These are the chimes of the 10,000 year clock; a clock which should be able to keep an accurate time for the next 10,000 years. It should be maintainable with bronze-age technology, possible to determine operational principles of the clock by close inspection and improvable with time. A real example of long term thinking.

ATP New York Sep 2009


Finally getting around to posting pics from our recent trip to North Amerikey. Grapejuice was part of the incredible Caribou Vibration Ensemble playing at ATP festival in New York.
So to the ATP Round Up that corresponds to the images: We stayed in a cabin, watched some bands, dressed as yetis (then got told off for dressing as yetis), admired the venues' decor and spent 10 hours in a van...

For more pictures see the picasa album.

Down by harbour front whilst this buddha statue is sat meditating, the docks are busy loading and unloading container ships with these cranes that look like lego dogs.

On the bus

red run.. red run...

walk to the library

A couple of snaps I took during our walk to the library in Bugis. I love that so many of the buildings here are painted bright colours. The 'Keep Out' sign is also a really familiar sight here on all the construction sites, it is written in all 4 of the national languages; English, Malay, Tamil and Mandarin.
