Another Alley in London

Another Alley, originally uploaded by NiteMayr.

Thus far London has been a treasure trove of things to look at, alleys and buildings and trees and ponds and and and….

I’m looking forward to having more time to explore the city when Jen and I are more liquid, instead of hiding monk-like in the house when we have no cash.

Take this alley for example, I’d have loved to get on with more images of this alley (or at least took more time on the shot)

This alley was full of neat lines and colors, I think one could pull a few really iconic images just from a couple shots of it.

Yes, I think I’m happy here in London.

It's Commander Rick!

Some judicious Google video searches led me to some Prisoners of Gravity episodes online:

For the uninitiated, the young, the vain or the American; Prisoners of Gravity was THE genre fiction discussion program from the 80s to early 90s (it followed me through High School guaranteeing that I would never be “cool” at my rural high school). If you were a fan of any kind of Genre ficiton of any sort, with comics and sci-fi as a preference then Prisoners of Gravity was your mecca. I remember being excited when Commander Rick would interview the Cyberpunk luminaries like William Gibson and Bruce Sterling (The Difference Engine) and authors like Alan Moore (Judge Dredd) or Neil Gaiman (Black Lotus).

I strongly encourage you (if you are a fan) to check out “Prisoners of Gravity” online at google video and enjoy what us kids in the know (and not americans) were able to enjoy way back when.

I know those were their less famous works, which is why I chose them.
