Nothing Lasts Forever: a low budget parody about a struggling artist

"Writer–director Schiller is best known for his short films from the early days of SNL and in 1984, together with producer Lorne Michaels, concocted this imaginative fantasy–comedy about true love, bad art, magical hobos, Carnegie Hall and space travel. Sweet, absurd and crammed with an incredible cast and countless hilarious moments of inspired brilliance, it was never released and never found the cult–audience it so rightfully deserved."

Archigram: experimental architecture

"Long before high tech was a recognisable movement, six English lads concocted visions of an architecture influenced by space travel, cartoons, and underground culture.In 1963, Archigram––a collaboration of Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, Ron Herron, David Greene, and Mike Webb––coalesced and began an inventive run that in many ways paralleled that of the Beatles, including the ultimate (and, in their case, amicable) split and the continuation of a number of solo careers. Like the Beatles, Archigram wasn't founded on clarion principles but came together almost casually, six lads with a childhood in common and the urge to jam. And, like the Beatles, Archigram reconnected with a squandered tradition, reinvestigating a number of sites mainstream architecture had written off––machines in the garden, the joys of consumption, the family of the object, the carnival of new ideas."
