It’s Almeria, (that’s Spain, to the likes of you and me), but wait – they’re still in the 1990s. Oh, blessed days, when Manchester was ‘Mad’ (and Salford was merely angry). How things have changed. Progress? I’ll take a soupcon of salt, thank you very muchly.
I don’t believe in UFO’s. Well, at least, I didn’t, until this strange object appeared in the sky and followed me around, from pillar to post and gateway to attic. Haunted? I should be so lucky. If I’m ever haunted it won’t be by someone I know. It will be the Taxman
Salford University? I suppose you could call it my Alma Mater. (One of them.)
I graduated from here in 2002 with an M Phil degree and I’ve never looked back.
(Of course, if I had looked back, in the photo above, I would have seen the Salford Museum and Art Gallery, one of Salford’s great places for a cup of frothy coffee.)
It says ‘BHS’ but that doesn’t mean it’s a handout from the late, great ‘British Home Stores’. No, the letters stand for ‘Brow House Spirit’. More of that later.
Jane and Mike are At Home today. They are having an interesting chat. Jane isn’t happy. Look at Jane. Jane is shouting. She feels like she’s drowning
(A video? Yippee, I luv toons! Right, well, be sensible. All you have to do is click the first bit of the blue line and away you go. Awayyyyy – actually you get linked to Vimeo.com, where Mike has a table top full of short films. Check out the Oscars! (Well, not Oscar but Mike once had a dog called Buzz and a goldfish called Archie. Oscar? Archie? So close!)
Ouch, Mike’s getting philosophical.
The thing is this: we live in a modern world, and have access to the greatest store of facts ever made available to humankind. So, we all know everything, right?
Mike says No. He brings up a simple point to get started, and yes, his argument makes sense. It’s a video, shot in the upstairs room of Ordsall Community Cafe. But you already knew that, right? No? Well maybe Mike is right in what he says. You try it and see. Click on the link and away you go. It’s Philosophy Major down there in Ordsall.
Okay, guys. Click away
This is good advice, from a man who knows what he’s talking about. I’d trust him to tell me what the weather is going to be like tomorrow, (and you can’t say that about Radio 4)
Uh, he’s not Mike. That is, not Little Mike. He’s Big Mike, and that makes his words bigger (and a little bit louder, as you will see)
“Over and Under” is a song from the skies (or beneath the ground). Either way, it’s probably new to you. Give it a try (from your seat, or from that hole in the ground you are in the process of digging for yourself).
