London Town Collection

Sometime in the very near future I'm going to be uploading my first photography collection which I've called 'London Town' because, surprise surprise, I took the photos in London. I've edited quite a few of the pictures already but I've still got some more to edit. This photo is going to be the cover (?) for the collection, hope you like it!

Amy Winehouse Statue and Exhibition Announced

A statue of singer Amy Winehouse has been given the go ahead to be built in Camden, North London. The statue will stand on the balcony of the Roundhouse, a music centre. It is hoped that fans will visit the statue, rather than the Camden home where the 27 year old died after accidently drinking too much. The statue will show Amy in a short dress with her typical voluminous beehive. This is what the statue, designed by Scott Eaton, will look like:
It's also been revealed that an exhibition of Amy Winehouse's life is to open in July at London's Jewish Museum  The exhibition will include previously unseen family photos of Amy, some of her outfits, her first guitar and some of her record collection.

Stood next to Paloma Faith for a photo Kylie is dressed in a wrong kind of quirky way.

Mike Brodie

Scrolling through I came across this page: about photographer Mike Brodie. His pictures show the beautiful, yet terrifying world in which we live. Indeed, just searching his name on Google Images provides you with row after row of fasinating, bizzare, awe and fear inspiring pictures. Some of his pictures I find plain weird but some strangely beautiful. After a good half hour of scrolling this has to be my favourite:

I've not posted anything in ages and I will admit it, I feel slightly guilty. Sorry. It's not like I've not been online-in fact I've been on tumblr almost everyday! I've just been a really busy bee lately! This weekend I went on my DofE practice walk and somehow managed to get sun-burnt, something which I'm secretly pleased about, because that means that the sun has, at last, decided to put in an appearance! Still, I've found a few songs which I am ashamed to say I'd not heard before-they are, in my opinion at least, fabulous! To save you some effort I've put the music videos in throughout this post, so you can listen and read.

The video is not so good, but if you close your eyes....
Los Angeles is Burning, Bad Religion

I was going to say next month but then I reliased its actually this month, my final GCSE exams start! [Insert rude word for poo]. So that means I have to revise.... which is a shame because I really haven't got the work ethic. Still, I will simply have to force myself to revise. After all, it's not like I'm the only person with important exams soon which I can't be bothered to revise for...

Teenage Icons, The Vaccines

Being the time of year that it is it means that the auditions for crappy Saturday night shows such as The Voice and BGT are almost over. Thank goodness! Still, last years X-Factor contestants Little Mix seem to have done well for themselves, three popular songs by them I can remember being unfortunate to hear played repeatedly on the radio. But ah well,  I guess everyone has to make a living somehow! And they can sing.....

Blue Song, Mint Royale

Last thing, whilst trunddling my way through the mass of the internet I came across this website, With a supply of up-to-date cultural coolness I suggest you take a peek.

Things you didn't know until you read this... For example... Oranges are berries....

Cara Delevinge 'Mystery'

Supermodel Cara Delevinge, whose last name I still struggle to spell, has been spotted with what reports are calling a 'mysterious' plastic package, containing white powder. Hmmm... Beautiful  rich, supermodel, party girl.... wonder what that white powder is?? Not to hard to hazard a fairly accurate guess, is it? 
A similarity to another British supermodel, Kate Moss to be precise, is becoming even clearer.
