This afternoon I attended a music workshop organised by NAS West Norfolk. The title of piece of this post, acompanied by many photographs, is about this workshop.
Having established to my own satisfaction the location of Scout Hut 12, Beulah Street I walked out of town along Bawsey Drain as far as Lynn Sport before heading across the open grassland to the scout hut (my direction finding was up to its usual standard, so no hiccups). Although I was under some time constraint I got a few photos on the way…
AT THE SCOUT HUT
First up, “hut” is something of a misnomer – it is quite a substantial building. There were many things worthy of photographing there…
After a brief meet and greet upstairs it was downstairs again to the room where the action was taking place. Fortunately, the music making was being done largely by computer – I would not have inflicted myself playing an actual instrument on anyone (there were some real instruments there but I was careful not to be assigned any of them). In the first session which was group playing I had first stringed instruments and then a couple of keyboard instruments (in computer program form)…
The second session involved recording ourselves making percussion type sounds from non-instruments – the results were not nearly as appalling as you might expect.
I have a few more pics from the building to display…
For the walk home I headed down to King Edward the Seventh Academy, along to Tennyson Road and through to Seven Sisters, finishing up by heading along the riverbank. Here are the pics from that section of the day…
Not so many links as as I sometimes have, but still enough to split into sections.
THE LABOUR LEADERSHIP ELECTION
Two links in this section:
- Mark Steel has produced a typically amusing ironic piece in the Independent by way of responding to the decision to refuse his application to register as a supporter.
- Vox Political on another Blairite grandee who has proven unable to resist sticking his oar in, on this occasion the ignoble Lord Mandelson
I am including in this section a petition calling on the government for a full assessment of the impact of welfare cuts on disabled people. My other two links are to an online publication called The ASD Times. They have been kind enough to include some of my stuff, so here a couple of links the other way:
Two links in this section…
- A call to keep the pressure on South African Airlines to do the right thing and refuse to carry hunting “trophies”.
- Mark Avery tackles a by-product of driven grouse shooting – traps.
Two links and an infographic here…
