DANCE FLOOR CRISIS

A couple of nights ago Mark and I watched two of Pablo Larrain’s films both set in the 1970s at the time of the military coup and after in Chile. Both ‘Tony Manero’ (yep, Saturday Night Fever) and ‘Post Mortem’ are impressive interpretations on what it is to have no respect for human life. In Tony Manero there is a scene where the protaganist makes a dance floor which can be lit from beneath thus enabling him to be John Travolta/Tony Manero and this reminds me of that scene. If you haven’t seen them then do – brilliant works.

LITTLE TIN(Y) SOLDIERS (AFTER THE SMALL FACES)

Sign of the Times-102This scene is currently on a building, from around the 1930s, on the A1 north of Peterborough. The building is to be demolished and nine homes built on the land it currently occupies. It is obviously a haven for graffiti artists and bored youngsters so I have taken quite a few pictures to keep as it will soon disappear from the radar and will not be missed by many but missed by us.
