去披頭四博物館在central station拿到的報紙,報導liverpool當地樂團活動或是藝術活動訊息
裡面的編排很乾淨,並不像一般的報紙打開來一堆文字硬是要讓你知道發生什麼事情,一頁就只說一件事情,真可惜不住在liverpool,不然就可以每個星期拿了








 這些黑白照片在報紙的中間版
 可能是利物浦人參加活動被拍下來的側照
  一種屬於liverpool的獨特城市氛圍
















最後我覺得有一篇很有趣的是教你怎麼做一個文藝少年
標題是:a beginners guide to being indie

indie; an obscure form of rock which you only learn about from someone slightly more hip
than yourself. (Urban Dictionary) 註:Urban Dictionary 是非正規用語字典








開始正文:
1.Clothes are very important, but you have to be good looking,
   if you're not, don't bother reading
   this article; Become a Skater or a Goth.

   The best clothes come from Vintage shops, where do vintage shops get their
   clothes from? Cool People. Where do cool people get their clothes from? Topman. 
   FUCK the charity shops, go to the source. Anything goes in Topman, except the following.
  -Clothes with luminous bits on them.
  -Clothes with paint splatter on them.
  -Clothes with a band who broke up before you were born.
   Whenever I buy clothes from Topman. I usually give them to a charity shop and then
   buy them back.

 2.T-shirts should always be V-neck and either black, white or grey. B-necks are in,
    no matter what anyone says. Chris Martin wears them. The only way you can get away
    with wearing a round neck t-shirt is if it has stripes. Stripes must be black and white.
    Stripes are very cool.

3.Wear scarves as often as you can. The smaller and least useful, the better.

4. American Apparel hoodies are good-but only if you wear them open and tie the
    drawstrings in a bow. This is very indie.

5. Jeans should be black. Skinny. Nothing else. Use the small pocket for your mephedrone.

6. Converse can be worn, but must be dirty, clean shoes are no good. Boat shoes are ok,
    but socksmust NOT be worn and jeans will need to be rolled up at the bottom- you
    don't want to look like an idiot.

7. I try to use the plain jeans and plain t-shirt as a foundation, and then use the
   shoes and the jacket to be creative. White shoes are good. If someone laughs
   and say you look like a twat, they are just jealous.
   The jackets you wear should be blazers, velvet ones are good, they get attention,
   I get lots of attention.
   Hats? I have great hair, so I tend to stay away from hats.
   Yours will not be as good, so pick yourself
   up a black trilby. The libertines wear trilby's.
   The libertines are indie.

8.The music you listen to is important. The kings of Leon's are generally
   considered to be the best. So listen to their stuff. we know the best acts
   are the most popular ones, but you need to be able to
   remember at least five band names that no one else will know.
   NME is good for getting this kind of information.
   Sure the Hard-Fi's of this world will always be known as
   the best but if you show some musical knowledge girls will love this. Girls love me.

9. You should smoke. Try and smoke something less common.
   I smoke Lucky Strike Lights. Like me,
   they are very cool and not very strong so they don't hurt my throat.
   Girls always ask for cigarettes,
   you pull out a lucky strike and that girl is yours. Fact.
   Don't feel the need to finish your cigarettes,
   or even inhale, the fact you have it in your hand makes you indie.
   Well there you have it, a quick guide to being indie.
   Not many people would be in a position to write such an article.

  Could anyone else write an article like this? No...
