A Few Things

One- Bristol Radical History Group has posted mp3s of the talks from Down With Fences. So far I've only listened to Peter Linebaugh's talk about his most recent book Magna Carta Manifesto: Liberty and Commons for All (which I've just finished reading, it's good), and George Caffentzis talking about an older book, Clipped Coins: John Locke's Philosophy of Money (which I haven't read, but maybe I will now). The rest of the talks seem equally good. They've also published three pamphlets: Cry Freedom, Cry Seven Stars: Thomas Clarkson In Bristol, 1787 by Mark Steeds, We Come For Our Own And We Shall Have It - Smuggling In Poole And Dorset by Kevin Davis, and A Brief History Of Corporations - Where Did They Come From? By Dan Bennett & Andy Singer. I haven't seen any of them yet, but they seem awesome.

Two- Our friends at Breviary stuff have taken the time amidst posts about anti-enclosure riots, Elizabethan Rogues and Vagabonds and awesome books (seriously, please check out the current books list) to post about No Quarter #3.

Three- I've just seen Anja Kirchner's new film Trail of the Spider. So Awesome! "Trail of the Spider is a 55 minute Western that collides the suppressed multi-racial history of the American frontier with the conflicts breaking up East London today." Couldn't have said it better myself.
