saturday 08122007


the pages are from "SUPER STORY BOOK FOR BOYS"

the opening story of which is "The Soccer Tramp" by Thomas Kemp

"Jed Logan was just a tiny, middle-aged unknown tramp who had never played a game of football in his life. When he leaped a six foot high hedge straight into the path of an oncoming car, he also jumped into the ranks of Elkston United, Britain's top soccer club. Dave Sandford, player-manager of Elkston, took a big chance when he signed on Jed. Would the gamble pay off? For Jed was incurably lazy."

Wow 500 posts! 400 for me tomorrow. How did you get so many views in the last couple of days, Russell?
russell higgs: don't know.

there's a popular link to me out there somewhere saying either "I love this man" or "check out this wanker."
The burnt newspaper is a great idea here, Russell. First I'm a mover and shaker today then you are top of the pile. What is going on?
russell higgs: Sarah Sze inspired me to try experimenting with burnt paper. Her burnt paper sculptures are stunningly beautiful.
