This is one of the funniest sketches that I have ever seen.

Wilderness downtown (Arcade Fire)

Type in the place were you grew up and watch this interactive music video of Arcade Fire take you there. Really good but since it works with Google map, it works with places that have sufficient info, so I didn’t manage to get it working very well with locations in Iran but it is still a great experience.

Arcade Fire is an indie Rock group based in Montreal. It is a family team of husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, along with Will Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, Jeremy Gara, and Sarah Neufeld. Their music and lyrics are brilliant. For this video they have teamed up with creative Artists and produced the interactive video where you run and watch the video in the neighborhood that you say you grew up.

After you watch the video, you can draw or write a post card that goes to your former self!

Louise Bourgeois (Tate Modern)

Tate Modern for a time was like a second home for me. I worked in the offices around Southwark and visited it most lunchtimes.

A work which was there for a few years was Louise Bourgeois’ Mamon.

She must be an inspiration to many because as wonderful as an Artist that she was, her work only became known in her senior years.

Born in an Artistic environment to a family whose profession was tapestry she depicted her mother’s over protective yet menacing presence in the form of a giant spider protecting it’s eggs. Louise’s experience of her Nanny becoming her father’s mistress and the betrayal of that relationship became her driving Artistic force. She constantly tried to resolve the experience of the betrayal into a fantastic work of Art.
