21st Century Dodos
Hello everyone (which is probably just one or two people but hello nonetheless!)
This blog, as you may have noticed, has been dormant for some time. There is a (sort of) good reason for that. I have been working on a follow-up to It Is Just You, Everything's Not Shit and it is published at the end of the month.
21st Century Dodos is a collection of endangered inanimate objects. And other stuff.
Essentially I have compiled a list of stuff that is on the verge of extinction, or are already no more, and tried to come up with a fitting tribute. A fond farewell.
So we have typewriters, Texan bars, VHS tapes, Woolworths, Smarties tubes, usherettes, rotary dial telephones, white dog poo... oh, you get the idea.
It is a bit of a nostalgia-fest. I hope you enjoy it.
21st Century Dodos: A Collection of Endangered Objects (and Other Stuff) is published on September 29th. If you are in London on October 6th you'd be very welcome to come along to the launch. Details are here and also on Facebook.
Perhaps I'll see you there?
