BOHEMIAN INTERIORS BLOG
Hey y’all - check out my other blog Bo-Home for bohemian interiors inspiration!! :)
Glastonbury.. just wow.
Popped down to Gods Own Junkyard in Walthamstow London today where Chris Bracey and his crazy crew create the stuff of electric dreams. Show-stopping and down right heart-stopping signage for film sets, shows and the odd knocking shop in downtown Soho! All I could say on walking in there was ‘Oh. My. God!’ about five or six times. A wall to wall, floor to ceiling, neon homage to sex, drugs and rock’n’roll.
I’m not the only devotee - he has a long list of A-list clientele. Yet this little gem of a junkyard is just a hop, skip and a jump down the road from us in little old Walthamstow.
For now anyway.
Waltham Forest council have served notice on the Junkyard and it’s likely, after more than 40 years, they’ll be evicted from their premises to make room for ‘development’ of the area.
Seriously. Are these council officials on drugs? How on earth can building another set of flimsy battery farm flats and a tacky Tesco Metro equate to development?
I fear the rampant homogenisation of our wild urban areas, draining the creative lifeblood, and channelling wealth out of local communities, straight into the pockets of a few big corporations.
Let the battle begin!!
I’d love to create a little happening in Epping Forest to celebrate the beauty of our forests, to show how they support biodiversity, to raise awareness of the worrying decline in wildlife and to inspire everyone of the need to fight harder than ever to protect it.
I’m thinking a little rock’n’roll picnic with tents! Right now it’s just an idea.. I’d really love to do it though. Maybe next summer. Time to get my planning hat on I think! :)
Great article in the latest issue of the E&T magazine. Green technology is the future! So good to see that the professional engineering community feels the same. Proud to be a CEng with the IET!
Rock In Peace Ray Manzarek. We have lost yet another true legend. You were an inspiration to many and continue to be so. We are so very blessed to have your music. Thank you.
For anyone who loves the Doors, Wonderland Avenue is a great read. A first hand account of the band amongst other LA bands of that era. Throughout it, Ray’s beautiful personality really shines through.. ;)
Summer has finally arrived in our garden! :-)
