I absolutely fucking love the art-comedy duo Noble And Silver. I have great memories of their six part TV series, 'Noble And Silver: Get Off Me!' which I was sure was going to take off, and a performance I caught in The Hen & Chickens theatre in North London. They take Reeves And Mortimer or Mighty Boosh surreality to the next level. But as Marty McFly once so wisely said: 'I guess you kids aren't ready for that just yet'
Anyway, here's some videos that Noble And Silver have recently uploaded onto YouTube to give you a flavour.

When I first found Flickr I was reminiscing and looking for pictures of spliffs and found this great set of photos by Burny123 and his friend dan garrett.
There's something poignant and beautiful about these young lads' photos which reminded me of my own adolescence, last day of school, social stoning sessions etc. Both lads are funny, if sometimes a bit cruel, and burny123 especially has a talent for abstract photography, evoking a sense of how young life is out of the city - in this case Lincoln in the Midlands. You couldn't fake photos like these - its the real deal. Brilliant.
