Hello, everyone. How are you all?
Little to report at the moment, as everyone’s away on their holidays. Here’s a selection of titbits:
A post‐Lakanal House inspection of other buildings on the Sceaux estate has found a series of hazards. It’s good that actions are being taken to prevent this happening in the future, but there’s an unmistakable feeling that the stable door is being bolted a little too late.
Comedian James Sherwood makes a joke about Noodels City in his stage show. It’s a rich vein of comedy gold to mine.
Camberwell’s very own Florence (with or without her Machine) is up for a Mercury award tonight. I quite like her album, but she’s not hotly tipped to win it. Update: She didn’t. South London still represented, though.
Now onto more prosaic matters: I’m looking for someone to take over this blog for a while; at the very least for the next two weeks, as I’m off on my annual jaunt around the Med, but probably for a little longer too. I’ve been writing the blog for over five years and if it isn’t getting a little stale for you, it is for me. I’ve got plans for more stuff I’d like to do with it, but time is sparse right now, so I need someone to take over the reins for a bit.
Ideally I’d prefer to have a few different people, to get some variety in the voice of this site. If you’re interested in writing — from a single post to a regular gig — leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
