Selectism | Around The Web

01. The makers of S.E.H Kelly

“As a self confessed factory fetishist, I like nothing more than traveling the length and breadth of these Isles and beyond to get my next fix. However, it just isn’t possible to practice craft voyeurism as much as I’d like to. Thankfully, S.E.H. Kelly’s captivating website offers a welcome glimpse in to their network of makers. Every aspect of every garment is made with the domestic clothing industry, with steadfast adherence to quality and the sturdiness of British make and makers celebrates them.” (Style Salvage)

02. Stepping Sideways: Preview And Prediction For Saul Alvarez Vs. Kermit Cintron

“Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is either the future of the boxing or a spoiled child, depending on who you ask. It’s unlikely that the argument is going to be solved by his junior middleweight fight this weekend with Kermit Cintron in Mexico City. Not unless Cintron pulls the upset and defeats Canelo, which is an unlikely prospect.” (Queensbury Rules)

03. Bonnie Greer: why I turned my Question Time appearance with Nick Griffin into an opera

“I still haven’t seen the edition of Question Time broadcast on 22 October 2009, and I probably never will. For me, it was the culmination of two weeks of total tumult, simply because I said yes. The politicians on the panel – Jack Straw, Baroness Warsi, Chris Huhne and Nick Griffin – had minders; some of them even had coaches to help them through. I had nothing: nothing to prevent journalists from ringing me 24/7, nothing to prevent the media speculating as to whether I was up to it or not. I was given advice in cabs, on the tube, in shops. Half my friends were violently against me doing it.” (Guardian)

04. The sudden death of film

“Who would have dreamed film would die so quickly? The victory of video was quick and merciless. Was it only a few years ago that I was patiently explaining how video would never win over the ancient and familiar method of light projected through celluloid? And now Eastman Kodak, which seemed invulnerable, is in financial difficulties.” (Chicago Sun-Times)
