Alasdair, a lobster fisherman from the Isle of Lewis, believes he witnesses a suicide from the coastal cliffs, however when he rushes to where the man fell in there is no trace of anyone to save. On land in his close-knit community there is no record of anyone missing, no body is found and doubt begins to form in those around him. The sea is where Alasdair finds quietude and purpose, however a harsh winter has crippled the supply of lobster and as he struggles to provide for his wife and young son, the suicide experience haunts him and his profound relationship with the sea begins to sour. A looming wind farm project also promises to transform the land around him, which has always been, like the sea, a comforting constant in his life. Uncertain of the future of the Hebridean man he begins to withdraw from his family questioning the role he has in their lives. He is drawn to the cliffs and develops a fascination with the man he believes he saw die and begins to question his own mortality and the value of his own life, in a world where a man can vanish into the sea and not be missed.

Tricky: Evolution Revolution Love feat. Ed Kowalczyk and Hawkman (2001)

Egészen döbbenetes korszak volt az ezredforduló környéke, gyakorlatilag mindent beszoptam, amit a csodálatos Viva Zwei adott, többek közt ezt a számot is, amit az akkor már szinte magatehetetlen Tricky - akit aztán jóval később, a legendás szigetes koncertjén még magatehetetlenebbnek láttam -, a Live legszánalmasabb korszakának végén járó Ed Kowalczyk és ez a Hawkman, akiről fogalmam sincs, hozott össze. És tudjátok, mi a vicces az egészben? Hogy kétezertizenegy nyarán mindenhol, de tényleg mindenhol, padláson, pincében, a vadkerti tó partján, a bajai utcákon, a szobámban a gép előtt, a házunk melletti fűben fekve folyamatosan ezt a refrént dúdoltam, aztán eltelt tizenhárom év, és most megint ezt dúdolom. Nincs magyarázat.

U-Boat 110

These images are taken from an album of photographs found in the Swan Hunter shipbuilders collection at Tyne & Wear Archives. The album is from 1918 and documents the U.B. 110 before she was scrapped on the dry docks of Swan Hunter Wigham Richardson Ltd, Wallsend.

The twin-screw German submarine U.B. 110 was built by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg.

On the 19th July 1918, when attacking a convoy of merchant ships near Hartlepool, she herself was attacked by H.M. Motor-Launch No. 263 and suffered from depth charges. Coming to the surface she was rammed by H.M.S. Garry, a torpedo boat destroyer, and sunk.

In September she was salvaged and placed in the admiralty dock off Jarrow slake. She was then berthed at Swan Hunter’s dry docks department with an order to restore her as a fighting unit.

The Armistice on 11th November 1918 caused work on her to be stopped. She was towed on the 19th December 1918 from Wallsend to the Northumberland Dock at Howdon and was subsequently sold as scrap.

The album of photographs, taken by Frank & Sons of South Shields, documents the U.B. 110 in extensive detail. The photographs provide a rare glimpse into the mechanics and atmosphere of the raised German submarine.

Rust is Beautiful: A Tour Through Seven of Europe’s Awe-Inspiring Industrial Sites

There’s no doubt that the industrialization of Europe radically changed the landscape through massive brick factories and smokestacks churning into the skies. And when that industry moved on, it left behind relics with abandoned sprawling structures and rusting machines. The European Route of Industrial Heritage is aimed at celebrating the history, and even the beauty, of these monuments to the man-made.

The route includes sites in Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, and Sweden, with themes organized around things like salt, water, mining, and iron and steel.
