The Ghosts of Oxford Street: Malcolm McLaren's 1991 musical interpretation of London's famous shopping street

"From humble country road to the the most fashionable street in Europe, Oxford Street has been home to such colourful characters as highwayman Jack Wild, writer and opium addict Thomas de Quincy and shopping impresario Gordon Selfridge.

The Happy Mondays, Rebel MC, Tom Jones and Sinead O'Connor join in a unique and eclectic musical celebration of this retail mecca and its history."

(Channel 4)

Senses of Cinema: Australian-based online film journal

"Senses of Cinema is an online journal devoted to the serious and eclectic discussion of cinema. We believe cinema is an art that can take many forms, from the industrially–produced blockbuster to the hand–crafted experimental work; we also aim to encourage awareness of the histories of such diverse forms. As an Australian–based journal, we have a special commitment to the regular, wide–ranging analysis and critique of Australian cinema, past and present.

Senses of Cinema is primarily concerned with ideas about particular films or bodies of work, but also with the regimes (ideological, economic and so forth) under which films are produced and viewed, and with the more abstract theoretical and philosophical issues raised by film study. As well, we believe that a cinephilic understanding of the moving image provides the necessary basis for a radical critique of other media and of the global 'image culture'."

Tim Razo's Blog of Miscellaneous Pictures

"The collective unconscious has manifested itself in the material world thru what we call the "world wide web". Massive collections of profound & compelling imagery are now readily available to us the human race, all at arms length.

I have assembled a huge assortment of random images collected thru incidental search engine excavations, which cannot be placed into any specific image folder such as landscapes, architecture, people, textures, etc. Therefore, these orphans of momentary conceptual definition must be placed into a folder labelled 'misc'.

This blog has been created in recognition of this phenomena & simultaneously of the marvel of complex information systems dedicated to data manipulation & storage. Propelling us ever exponentially further thru our evolution to a final destination. Wherever and whomever that might be.

Join me Tim Razo, in my quest for inspiration and visual stimuli in our vast ocean of thought. A social commentary (or visual playlist; and unrepentant stolen image diary if you will), with only idealistic positivity as a goal, is what we shall find."

Cabinet of Curiosities Blog

"'Sharp, quirky, and occasionally nettlesome', Walking the Berkshires is my personal blog, an eclectic weaving of human narrative, natural history, and conservation science with the Berkshire and Litchfield Hills as both its backdrop and point of departure. I am interested in how land and people, past and present manifest in the broader landscape and social fabric of our communities. The opinions I express here are mine alone."
