107 photos. Elgin Marbles were one of those bands who’d more come out of the Pub scene than the Indie, with the Punk influence naturally suiting their New Wave attack, but because the music... More > press naturally began to favour the development of Indie they wouldn’t have been seen as ‘cool’ enough, which was a great shame as they were a really good band. We find 50 live photos here of them performing at the Clapham 101 Club 1980, where some are a bit rough but I felt it right to include everything, 30 live photos from the Moonlight in West Hampstead 1981, as well as more 27 informal shots at a band rehearsal.< Less
Consciousness and Marbles By R. A. Elschlager

Digs into relation between consciousness and the material world, a relation vexing human grasp. Uses several foundational ideas from science and mathematical logic - the idea of “photographs of... More > consciousness,” and the idea of two languages to look at the same aspect of reality. Derives framework and principles in this large topic. Our context is a model of the information system going on in the brain, as it relates to consciousness, “marbles” being a central part. Later, the book moves to general issues. At one point, it tries to prove mathematically that consciousness can contribute nothing to quantum mechanics (QM). However, in trying to prove this, it discovers “a better mathematics,” which is a fascinating, possibly civilizational, change in our relation to experts in general. And likely of value also for QM. The author has a background at UC Berkeley in mathematical logic and at Stanford in artificial intelligence.< Less

This book looks at consciousness from the perspective of an information system that happens to be going on in a brain. By looking repeatedly, deeper and deeper, at a trivial 10-second event (in my... More > life), and using a scientific approach, functional aspects, deeper and deeper, of the consciousness subsystem of the information system are characterized or hypothesized. Senses and feelings (emotions) are included. Some principles suitable for a science are put forward. This is a very mechanical, scientific analysis, and it suggests a purely mechanical character of consciousness. The book has a few brief, non-negative statements about spirituality and religion. The surprising results toward the end, on a better mathematics for human knowledge, having nothing to do with consciousness, are mentioned in greater length in the online description of the paperback version of the book. Some online sites may have a preview of the book. The paperback has page numbers and an index, an eBook cannot.< Less

Lyrical, tender and sexually exhilarating, The Marble Boy is a record of a man's journey through the Mediterranean. Real and imaginary, Edmund tries to come to terms with lost love until, finally, he... More > finds a new opportunity to love again. But, who is Edmund, and why is he running away? “A sensual book of infatuation and longing, it is also a wonderful journey of melancholia and wistfulness. The book allows us to travel, and it sometimes takes our breath away...” David Matthews "Here's a book for every gay man wondering where his life is heading. Its fragile, melancholic mood resonated beautifully with my own middle-age-crisis state of mind. Beautifully written and compelling; I found it uplifting" CJ Anyone who loves Greece will find this assured and finely written novel a nostalgic evocation of that land’s scenery and culture, and it must now deservedly join the different genres of travel as well as romantic literature.” John Chitty< Less
