In Holland there are beer pumps for Heineken Zero Degrees that are actually clad in ice. I went round the back of this particular bar to see how it worked but the barman didn't really explain it very well. But believe me, it was clad in ice. Icy. Real ice.
For those who couldn't afford £600 to go to the Applied Green conference the other day, here's something from the people at Thoughtful.
We recently attended the Applied Green conference organised by Haymarket. Everyone at Thoughtful would have liked to have attended such an important event, with such notable speakers, but the ticket price meant we had to draw straws – James won.
So everyone didn't miss out, James took with him a small camera and an ipod to record some of the speakers just for everyone back at the studio.
And, being Thoughtful we'd thought it was a good idea to share these talks with other people who couldn't attend.
Of course, we wouldn't do this without the permission of the speakers themselves – and we're pleased to say, everyone thinks it's a great idea, and is very happy to have their talk blogged.
There's plenty of coughing and hissing on these recordings (the hissing is down to our basic kit, not an angry audience), so we'd suggest plugging in a set of headphones to listen to them. And, if you want to read a transcript of these talks, several of the speakers have already posted them on their own blogs.
I know that you're not supposed to copy stuff out of newspapers and put it online, but this Sunday there was a little book given away with The Observer, called The Observer Book Of Rock & Pop. And I guess that those that have it already have it, and those that don't don't. So I'm not harming sales, because it's not Sunday anymore.
Anyway, the funny thing were these song titles and lyrics. That's what I wanted to share.
