Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant filled with odd little waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don’t always like.
Dilston Grove by Ackroyd & Harvey
Dilston Grove (formerly known as Clare College Mission Church) located on the edge of Southwark Park in Bermondsey, London was transformed into a green chamber of living grass in collaboration with sound artist and composer Graeme Miller, Ackroyd & Harvey. This church was originally designed in early Italian style with an austere exterior which gave way to the dramatic difference created by the liveliness of the fabrics of growing grass. The clay, germinating grass seeds, water and natural light presented the sharp contrast between growth and decay, reverie and renewal. Through the interplay of light, sound and growth, this project brought resurrection to this old, inert and nonfunctional building, bringing back spiritual memories for local residence over a three week period.
It’s like “Twilight,” except with vampires.
Having re-watched “Bram Stoker’s Dracula,” I am forcibly reminded that Francis Ford Coppola blew his cinematic wad l-o-n-g before 1992.
Has your cat ever walked across your keyboard? Well, it’s not a new problem. Medieval book historian Erik Kwakkel recently Tweeted this photo of a 15th century book with… you guessed it… cat paw prints in ink on the pages! We’re part of a long and glorious historical movement, friends. (Source: Dr. Marty Becker)
Ah this is the best thing! Those medieval cats!

I am in Cardiff-by-the-Sea. Which is weird, because the Cardiff of my youth, in the UK is also by the sea, and not in some landlocked desert, as this name suggests. That Cardiff, however, is a lot wetter, colder, and Welsh-ier than this one. This Cardiff by the Sea also has Mexican restaurants, which were light on the ground in the Welsh Cardiff. More castpes than here, though, so I guess it’s a trade off. Anyway, Cardiff by the Sea, CA seems like a nice spot for surfing, sea gazing, and non-Welsh speaking, if you’re into that.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to see if there is a Torchwood Institute lying about.
