The Stone

by tim bradford on November 9, 2004

As I was flicking through the Stoke Newington OS map from 1868 (it’s a gripping read) I noticed that, north of the avenue and embankment that was once the New River, was a stone. No other explanation. Just “stone”. Was it a milestone, like the one on the bend of the New River near St Mary’s church? Maybe this is the same stone and it was moved into an enclosed area for safe keeping. Or was the “stone” something else, something older still? Like a neolithic marker which, though long gone, still gives off a strange magnetic pull that attracts summertime frisbee throwers and the Turkish football team (it’s near the spot where they do their windsprints).

There must be a historian around who knows these things, some Professor of Invisible Ancient Stones of North London at University College.Stone2

I loved “Is Shane McGowan Still Alive” and I can’t wait to read your new book!
I took ISMSA with me when I went to Dublin for vacation a few years back. I fondly remember trying not to laugh aloud while reading it as I ate lunch alone in the Kylemore Cafe.

Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

Today I see all that from a slightly different angle. Graffiti writers are selfish. Bombing and tagging add chaos to a city. Graffiti writers cause fear. They remind people that not everything, and definitely not their childrens generation, is perfect. Graffiti means: I dont respect you (and your values). I do what I want to do, now.
