              A video produced way back when for RedBull as one of their first forays into skateboarding in the UK. Using the camera skills of Dan Magee, Foxy and Stu Bently it was all shot in just one week featuring some pretty young faces on the then Blueprint team. Some wild spots were hit up including a shipyard and the road tunnel in Glasgow which we shut down for a bottle of whisky.

              • In Memory of Neil Smith - "Neil Reads USA Today: The Flip Side of the Weather is the News" 1984


                from Paper Tiger TV Added 3,463 4 0

                It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the loss of Neil Smith, Marxist geographer and comrade in arms. Here's something from the archives to remember him by. Neil passed away in the early morning hours of September 29th, 2012. Neil was a brilliant theoretician and an inspiration to so many. His absence will be deeply felt by communities of leftist political resistance and his brilliant ideas will influence our lives and work for many years to come. He was loved by so many. Neil Smith was a Professor of Anthropology and Geography and the Director of the Center for Place, Culture and Politics at the Graduate Center department of the City University of New York. In 1984, Neil collaborates with Paper Tiger and reads USA Today, America's only national newspaper and the one with the largest circulation. The newspaper's agenda of fostering national unity and consciousness through the dissemination of endless and useless trivia is analyzed. Finding the lowest common cultural denominator erases all tensions within American society and forwards the idea that the only difference between Americans are geographical anecdotes and the local non-happenings that fill up the newspaper's pages.

                    from Brian Pace Added 139 0 0

                    Music has been of a reflection of political, pop, and social norms set to all forms of music genres. As music changes with the times so has jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut. His unique and authentic soulful and gospel oriented playing has heads bobbing to packed audiences around the world. Also, he’s not ashamed to bring black culture in the limelight, something that’s been missing in mainstream culture. I caught up recently with pianist Cyrus Chestnut at the Jazz Standard where he played a week of dates. Chestnut, not one for staying musically in one place for too long, just released his latest disc “Journeys.” This disc isn’t the traditional piano recording, but is a trio disc. It features Dezron Douglas on bass and Neil Smith on drums. Although he was raised in the church in Baltimore, Maryland, he explains it was the music of his childhood and upbringing that he continues to embrace along with his rich African legacy. Chestnut started playing piano at nine and was studying classical at an early age. He attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Upon graduation, Cyrus played with the late Betty Carter, Jon Hendricks, Wynton Marsalis, and Terence Blanchard. As a soloist he’s been able bridge both jazz and gospel to the masses.

                    • Doggerland Part 1


                      from Neil Smith Added 220 0 0

                      'There was once a deep green paradise full of animals and birds and trees dripping with fruit. And it was called Doggerland. Then the waters came. Now the waters are rising again.' A town ravaged by time and decline on the south east coast of England clings to memories of days gone by. Three generations of women exist alone in an empty bed and breakfast: guarding secrets, washing, watching, and biding their time. On the eve of a full moon the youngest brings home a hunted man. CAST Jonny: Scott Hinds Nan: Jean Apps Rosie: Sophie Walton Bet: Georgina Sowerby DOGGERLAND is a darkly comic fable with a modern twist on the classic fairytales and their archetypes. It is written by Debbie Kent and has been specially selected to be staged at the New Diorama (http://www.newdiorama.com/Finding-New-Diorama.aspx) as part of SCENEPOOL's three-week 'Creative Producers Collective' (http://www.scenepool.co.uk/node/4). The broad feel of the play is a pinch of Pinter, an itch of Beckett and massaged by Caryl Churchill, but a dark heart all of its own. www.doggerlandtheplay.com During its premiere run at Barons Court Theatre (21st July-1st August 2010) it received great acclaim: Chris Deal (manager of Barons Court) called it: "An extremely entertaining play, full of shocks and surprises. The black humour is cleverly done, but constant scary twists pierce the humour like an icy knife and send shivers through you for minutes on end. Strongly recommended!" UKtheatre.net described it as 'Fascinating...a comic tragedy...impressive...claustrophobic and unsettling'. An audience member referred to it as 'The Domestic Witches of Margate' and 'a breath of fresh air for new writing on the fringe'. This is the premiere production of CRUCIAL THEATRE, a new theatre company that aims to uncover and share hidden myths (classic and modern).
