This post is dedicated to Ashley Lily Scarlett from Syncopated Eyeball, for kind words and encouragement. And because I love her blogs.

And to Roy Marchant, wherever you are.

These were both taken in Central London, UK last week.

Instead of talking about a man and a woman, I’m going to tell you about something else.

According to John Pierson (in his 1995 book, Spike, Mike, Slackers & Dykes – A Guided Tour across a Decade of Independent American Cinema), Wim Wenders and Jim Jarmusch were at the 1984 Telluride Film Festival. And, apparently, there was a Stranger Than Paradise versus Paris, Texas softball game.

He writes: “I pitched for Wim’s team for old time’s sake and we prevailed with the help of a diving catch by Werner Herzog and lively cheerleading by festival tribute subject, Janet Leigh. Jeff Lipsky’s super competitiveness, which serves him well in distribution, struck out this time when he tagged  Ry Cooder’s nine-year-old son too hard at third base. Both sides booed.”

Quite a game.

The first picture was taken outside the London Transport Museum shop and the second at Dulwich Park, London, UK. I think they belong together.


Also: I have a very small book work in an exhibition, inside a wallet somewhere in Deptford Park, 25th May, 2012. If you want to come along, I guess you have to look out for a group of artists waving bottles of cheap hooch, passing a wallet around. Good luck.
