Unlike other publications, the Style of Sound focuses on insights that have the biggest chance of bettering the sound track to its reader’s lives vs the “promote-as-many-albums-as-possible” approach.

A local Stoke Newington resident, Susan Beattie, has created the wonderful puppet show at the Little Angel Theatre based on interviews with various people who didn’t believe in a God. The show asks their views on what happens, if anything after we die.
Susan is also a puppeteer for the PG Tips Monkey puppet which you may recall features the voicework of comedian Johnny Vegas!
Susan will talk a bit about her work and career with the aid of some slides and film footage. She will also bring a couple of puppet examples for us to look at.
We look forward to seeing you.
£5 for non-members which can be discounted from your yearly membership if you join before March this year.

Visiting Windsor today, where the river banks were spilling over under the shadow of the Royal castle, I came across a great pair of Patrick Cox shoes in a charity shop on Peascod Street. They are a bit 60s I think.
Billboards in themselves are generally a bit boring. Oblong frames on the side of buildings or held up on stilts along highways that house one ad after another. However, IBM and advertising agency Ogilvy teamed up to create some ‘useful’ billboards to engage passersby into using them as practical objects, from rain shelters to stair ramps and the old-fashioned seat. An unusual and effective way to beat the billboard norms.
Wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year!
My recent new hobby will be keeping me busy in the evenings. With a dry January on the horizon, expect many more of these hand-warming mittens to be appearing.
Halfway through a knitting or crochet project and need some tips? Maya B from ‘Knit with Attitude’ will be at our 13th January meeting to give some guidance as well as telling us about the environmental and political aspects of the yarn industry.
