The Clash helps some of their fans to sneak in before a concert.

this is how you do music right.

I love this so much. Like how stoked would you be if a band you loved helped you sneak into a big show of theirs?

I’ve heard this story before and love that they did this. Stop me if you heard this other one:
The Ramones were playing in England and before the show they were hanging out in the dressing room when someone tossed a stone at the window. They looked out to see some young punks who wanted to get into the show but didn’t have money for tickets. The Ramones reached down and pulled the guys up and got them in. Those young punks without tickets were to become The Clash.
Good to hear they kept it going.

I can never just scroll past this without reblogging

Alejandro Guijarro - Momentum (2010-)

"The artist travels to the great quantum mechanics institutions of the world and, using a large-format camera, photographs blackboards as he finds them. 

Momentum displays the photographs in life-size. 

Before he walks into a lecture hall Guijarro has no idea what he might find. He begins by recording a blackboard with the minimum of interference. No detail of the lecture hall is included, the blackboard frame is removed and we are left with a surface charged with abstract equations. 

Effectively these are documents. Yet once removed from their institutional beginnings the meaning evolves. The viewer begins to appreciate the equations for their line and form. Color comes into play and the waves created by the blackboard eraser suggest a vast landscape or galactic setting. The formulas appear to illustrate the worlds of Quantum Mechanics. What began as a precise lecture, a description of the physicist’s thought process, is transformed into a canvas open to any number of possibilities.”

"When The Beatles were depressed, thinking, the group is going nowhere, and this is a shitty deal, and we’re in a shitty dressing room…I’d say, 'Where are we going, fellas?' They’d go, 'To the top, Johnny!' And I’d say, 'Where's that, fellas?' and they’d say, 'To the toppermost of the poppermost!' and I’d say, 'Right!' Then we’d all cheer up.” - John Lennon

Why do my college essay plans always lead to such things?

I played (Mick my solo) album, but he talked all the way through it. The only time I got any insight from him was when I went to take a pee. I come out of the john and he’s dancing around the room. For a minute I watch him, and he’s just enjoying it. So I went back into the john and slammed the door and walked out again, and he’s just sitting on the couch. But that’s Mick. I know the bloke. I guess I saw him liking it when he didn’t know I was looking. So that’s cool.
