Best thing about lockdown has been, not tripping over the vomit and piss outside the nightclub in the ally by the Squires building almost daily.

Worth a watch, such great design and skill by H&B.

As I walked past the site yesterday morning, I looked up at the blue sky above our market and remembered this with dread. Think again @lambeth_council and come on councillors reply to his letter.

Making animation in my shed is helping me survive lock-down. I’m so lucky. Great program too.

Looking back this really is a completely extraordinary watch. @BBCQuestionTime infront of a live studio audience on the 12th March?! @Johnrashton47 – the only public health expert on the panel – everything he said has come true. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000g781/question-time-2020-12032020

Hey shit I forgot it was on! Going to get my laptop

Hey @KateJessopfilm are you interested? Just saw this and thought of you.

I think we made it in 1993!
