Let’s get WASTED again!

April 4th, 2007 · posted by Chris Lever · marked as: Columns

Hi there. My name’s Chris, I’m twenty-three and I have a confession to make. Whilst it might be a slight faux pas on my account to own up to this in front of all you streetwise professors, I went to Morecambe in the summer of 2004 for the first time in my life. It was great…

A Sight Seeing Trip

April 4th, 2007 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Columns

I spent a week at the end of the summer on a holiday for people who are visually impaired. My role, apart from to have loads of fun, was to act as the ‘eyes’ for a different person each day. I didn’t have any experience working with blind people, or anyone with any kind of disability, so to say I felt like I was thrown in the deep end would be a real understatement.

I rode the Tate

April 4th, 2007 · posted by natalie · marked as: Columns

Over its tender years the Tate has embraced a number of installations ranging from tall, spindly spiders, Rachel Whiteread’s sugar cubes and a ’sun’, reflected above in a mirrored ceiling, prompting visitors to lie down and wave their arms and legs about. These are all installations which feature as part of the Unilever series. Quite what a major multinational brand has got to do with sponsoring art shows is beyond me but I guess that’s all fairly irrelevant. Nevertheless it’s always interesting to see what will be there next….

Last Hours Indeed (part 2)

April 4th, 2007 · posted by isy · marked as: Columns

The last few days, we’ve been hanging around our garden in T-shirts. I’ve seen ladybirds and butterflies, and the trees are leafy and lovely and all that sounds great – but it’s fucken November!! Doesn’t anyone else think something really weird is going on?

The Dawning Of A New Era

April 4th, 2007 · posted by Itch · marked as: Columns

When the folk inside Parliament claim that young people aren’t interested in politics, they could do themselves a favour and peek out the window to see a direct action demonstration largely attended by young people not bored with politics but bored with the abysmal policies of Tony Blair. Sack Parliament opened the door for a new movement. If the mainstream news were to be believed, the only youths in hoody’s were throwing petrol bombs at Muslims in Windsor. The ‘unreported’ hoody’s however, have united in Parliament Square to take the heroic action of civil disobedience by attempting to lie down in the middle of the road, thus stopping MP’s from entering the Houses of Parliament. One day without them in there will save a lot of destruction.

Photography rampage!

October 11th, 2006 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Columns

Sorry if my archive is a bit confusing! I don’t have any back issues here to know which issues things went in so I have to guess. I hope you like this old rant about photography.

Media Minefield column

February 11th, 2006 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Columns

I study broadcast journalism at the University of Leeds. A lot of people, not least myself sometimes, have a problem with the idea of the mass media, a body that chooses the stories it deems worthy of reporting, discarding others that may be important but are not thought to be ‘in the public interest’.

An old column about being pissed off…

November 11th, 2004 · posted by chris 12-o-5 · marked as: Columns

I read some of these old columns and they seem stupid and childish, but I guess I meant what I wrote at the time and that’s what an archive is for, so here you go.
