I'm not a huge fan of Gervais – and in places he's merely quoting Dawkins back to himself – but I'm with them both on the whole "G" issue.
A few of us at Pirata recently went to see Chris Cunningham’s live audio and video show at the Roundhouse. For the most part it was predictably challenging and entertainingly unsettling, and all in all a brilliant show.
However the highlight for me was the above video / remix of the late Gil Scott Heron’s New York Is Killing Me which was (like the rest of the show) projected across three screens and formed the intro to the show. Don't watch it here, pop over to YouTube and watch it full screen in HD.
Well I'm 'fresh' from what was undoubtedly my busiest month ever, so the lack of posts on this blog of late is perhaps more excusable than before.
But I thought it worthy of five minutes of my time to share the above video which was created by a friend and ex-colleague Gavin Leisfield, who is apparently even more talented than I had previously realised, and evidently more than willing to burn the midnight oil (as I know how long these things can take).
I'd recommend you visit its YouTube page, click the HD button and watch the animation full screen.
