yesterday had a couple of teaching sessions at NUA which went well - here are the links https://www.slideshare.net/l.bicknell/to-quit-or-not-to-quit - mainly trying to talk about giving in - it's that time of year within the academic world - so support is much needed - it's all about planning. https://www.slideshare.net/l.bicknell/label-work-why talking about the why, how and what of labelling - it's all about storytelling. and then some films - Wiener-Dog http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4144190/?ref_=nv_sr_5oddball is a term created for this film - any starting point that has a 'sausage dog' at its point has to be a good thing. 3 idiots http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1187043/ a fun yet politically conscious film that has so many knowing moments. The underlying themes are wholesome. and then there have been the 2 series of lovesick http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4051832/ - it's worth getting to season two to start to love Luke! the back story is always the key - just very sad but glorious writing. meanwhile a great sign to be found near me on the coast that helpfully explains how wonderful nature is in pictures whilst simultaneously messing it up - because you need a photograph of the space where you are standing in the actual space to help you really enjoy the space.
