http://rcasecret.blogspot.com/
“Over 1,000 artists donated 2,800 works to RCA Secret 2010, including
Tracey Emin, Grayson Perry, Yoko Ono, Jake Chapman, Olafur Eliasson,
Yinka Shonibare, Sir Peter Blake, plus current postgraduate students

STREET ARTISTS: The Artists’ Artist

SAVE THE WENLOCK ARMS: Saved
http://www.wenlock-arms.co.uk
Clearly my punchy slogan worked: down with bland homogenisation, up
with nice beer.  “Hackney Council, having had regard to the nature of
the application, the relevant planning policies and all of the
comments received from interested parties, has decided to refuse
planning permission.”

ASTEROID Yu55
http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/nov/06/asteroid-yu55-course-close-earth
“The asteroid, which is about a quarter of a mile wide, will pass
inside the moon’s orbit and come within 198,000 miles of Earth. This
is the closest a tracked object this size has come to the planet.”

Keep it Unplanned.
