With all this social media stuff like twitter, instagram and whatnot going on I almost forgot about about my flickr stream. Still a wonderful way to present photos. And mine comes with images like this one, which I think isn’t too bad:
A BBC Documentary recalling the revolution in British advertising during the 60s and three men who were instrumental in bringing it about. David Puttnam, Alan Parker and Charles Saatchi, who all worked for the same agency (CDP), were among the first to recognise the social changes which were taking place, and the style of advertising needed to appeal to the new breed of customer.
Many thanks to ditto.
Knox, former frontman of the Vibrators, is opening up a Rock ‘n’ Roll Shop in the heart of Camden, 96 Parkway, right next to the Dublin Castle. Donate CDs, DVDs and Instruments or buy CDs, DVDs and Instruments. Proceeds go to local food banks and other charities.

The website is dead too, but apparently Comet’s proprietor Tony James is setting up a new virtual business under the name of Timeless Hobbies.
Last but not least here’s my Flickr set of the cramped inside of the shop.
Here’s Comet Miniatures Last Day, via YouTube:
As usual, over at London Leben.
At least it’s rather colourful.
