Congratulations to Adam Goodes who notches up his 350th game tonight!
Forest Hill Station, Forest Hill
I’ve always felt the Forest Hill Station is the most New-York-Subway-looking of MUNI stations.
SOMEONE GO WITH ME TO THIS WHEN I’M IN LA PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
'Skateboarders Win', states the headline of the report in the Guardian today. The redevelopment of the undercroft at London’s Southbank Centre has been stopped and the space can be preserved for skateboarders.
The agreement, which involves both sides withdrawing various legal actions, resolves a battle that has been going on for nearly 18 months, since the centre announced plans for a spectacular £120m redevelopment which could only be funded, it said, by moving the skateboarders further along the Thames.
This success is also a triumph for participatory politics and further recognition of skateboard culture. Here we see a community determined to preserve not only a specific space, but a narrative of their own cultural history. It goes without saying that Southbank is recognised beyond the London skateboard scene and is one of a legion of skateboard spots globally famous.
The Long Live Southbank campaign which has even garnered support from London Mayor Boris Johnson can celebrate with their numerous supporters in this victory.
I just spent the last 2 days writing a reallly long post for Diversity in YA, so here’s Ellen Page looking moody and dapper in a suit.
