‘not a but a’ – Paul Conneally 2014

upcycled image of Gavin Wade’s handwriting on poster for 100 verses for 3 Estates

NOTA = None Of The Above – a voting option in some countries elections

We don’t have that option here in the UK ‘but a’ way to show disapproval of all candidates in an election is to spoil your ballot – I encourage people to do so rather than not make their mark at all.

All spoiled ballots in the UK are counted but have no influence on the result.

DP 67 - Paul Conneally 2014

Latitude 52 deg 45′ 55.17″ N Longitude 1 deg 12′ 21.87″ W

DP 67 is number one in the Telegraph Texts series by Paul Conneally.

Wooden telegraph poles once lined all Britain’s streets but are now disappearing, replaced by underground cable systems. Conneally captures images of official identifying letters, numbers and codes used to identify the telegraph poles along with other unofficial texts, marks and signs.

The images are mapped and published with their GPS coordinates.

Sugar Baby Love by The Zen Bruiser

"People
take my advice
if you love someone
don’t think twice”

SUGAR BABY LOVE by THE ZEN BRUISER

http://t.co/omjUMKEBaU The Zen Bruiser twists The Rubettes’ classic 70s glam trash track Sugar Baby Love into something entirely different - a reverb drenched electronic homage to Phil Spector. Written by Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington performed and produced by The Zen Bruiser

He stands, backed by the wall; — he abates not his din 
His hat gives him vigour, with boons dropping in, 
From the old and the young, from the poorest; and there! 
The one — pennied Boy has his penny to spare.

the old girl
not even glancing at Big Ben
silence of snow

a black and white cat
hangs around the cafe bins
just about midnight
she sings a song of lost love
where the chicken bones meet fish

how his dinner plate shrunk
after 80 years
Dad still hates peas

a row of carrots
between onions and beans
white dahlia blooms
cakes cooked by the ‘young wives’
on a long trestle table

two epitaphs in stone
she died of nothing he died alone
