Sheffield (Sarah)

I was trundling along the other day, lost in thoughts of shopping and work, when I came across this. It's a gigantic poem called 'What if', that has been installed on to the side of Sheffield Hallam University. It's been written by the Poet Laureate Andrew Motion.
I love it, for raising my eyes to the sky and giving me a flash of inspiration in an otherwise dull day. I love what it's saying - that our thoughts and actions impact the environment that we live in - and that we can be whoever we want to be.
But most of all I love the way it sets Sheffield up, as a city of possibilities.
I think it should be compulsory for all ugly buildings to have inspirational art stuck to their sides.
(You never know - you might see some of my lyrics up in lights one day)
This photo sums up why I love Sheffield.

Slight Rant & News

I'm not one for moaning about other artists especially those that have sold more albums that I could ever dream about selling BUT The new Kylie song and video "2 Hearts" is just boring.

Not that Kylie has ever been an innovator but like Madonna she has stayed current and fresh, I get the feeling the background for this song was. "I want to sound like Goldfrapp, but don't make it too electronic as that would be obvious." - the video also has the look of "Ooh La La" which came out two years ago. Sorry Kylie but you're "Loosing your edge"

Anyway we are recording the vocals for our Christmas Song on Friday after going to see the lovely Marsheaux who are performing live at the Hoxton Sq, Bar and Grill tomorrow night. They are coming all the way from Athens so hopefully there will be a good crowd.
