Drunk jongens chanting

The clubs have reopened, and must shut at midnight. The streets are deserted, the train is packed.

Magic lanterns

Time travel already exists. Visit the right place, in the right conditions, leave your phone at the door, and you can get an idea of how it was. Unjaded and genuine enthusiasm, that's what we want.  

You should know that

this website is a bit all over the place. I think that’s the only way a website can be. You either tame it or you let it go, let it be what it turns out to be. Let flux flow, let excruciating experiments run their course. On what it was. It doesn’t know.

B3 27 by David Wills

Has begun.

Records thrown from a window now on a pavement

Thuds and crashes, and whispering in the wind. There was always something going on in ‘lockdown’. Post-it notes appeared, rubbish disappeared. The world rotated on a billionaire’s finger, on a gazillionaire’s little pinky. Careering into view, a car manouvered by the top of someone’s wrist; or perhaps the bottom of someone’s palm? Blended days, impressive interactions through windows and an appreciation of the logistics, the effort, the dedication of others.
