A Short Break

Just got back from a short break in North Devon. Went to see my friend Mr Douglas E Powell.
Drunk some funny old beers and had a very nice time with the Powells. Myself Mrs Seatman and small wee Seatman went to Saunton Sands. Lots of exploring and Kite flying. Some lovely old Beach Huts there. On the way back to East Fuddlewitch we stopped of at Glastonbury Tor and did the long old walk to the top. For more Beach Huts go to my Flickr Page

Orbit Offsite 28th October

I was very excited to find out about this event on the Isle of Wight. But alas I can not go. So I thought best give it a mention. Quay Arts 2010 Open Winner; Katayoun Dowlatshahi investigates the hidden story of the rocket testing site in West High Down, Isle of Wight. 'Orbit' is a site specific response to the artist’s exploration of the Island and this work will be on show in the West Gallery at Quay Arts from the 22nd October - 3rd December 2011. The West Gallery, Quay Arts, Sea Street, Newport Harbour, Isle of Wight PO30 5BD
For the first time since the closure of the site in 1971, the event will see the return of working pulse jet rockets to the site by 11 apprentices from Astrium* in Portsmouth and Stevenage. The launch of a scale model of Black Arrow; three eminent speakers covering topics ranging from a historical, scientific and business perspective; a memory wall for those associated with the British Space Programme to contribute to either in the form of memories or artifacts; interactive activities for all ages, finally leading to a lantern launch at dusk. THE EVENT IS FREE

Musical Oddness that I like

I quite like the Musical Oddness. And here are some fine examples of musical oddness that I like at the moment. I am not a huge fan of Alex Harvey but The Sensational Alex Harvey Band performing Jacques Brel's Next on the Old Grey Whistle Test works very well for me. Next up Mr Ivor Cutler playing his little ditty I'm Happy, and you just can't not feel happy watching it. This is followed by the wonderful Cardiacs with their promo vid for the song Tarred and Feathered.  Sadly Alex Harvey passed away in 1982, Ivor Cutler passed away in 2006. Poor old Tim Smith of the Cardiacs suffered a stroke and heart attack in 2008, and it is unlikely that we will hear from the Cardiacs in the forseeable future. Which is a bloody shame.
