Warsaw walky-talky

I used to do travelogue podcasts fairly regularly. They're collected here, but there hasn't been a new one since January 2007, because the recorder I used to use stopped working. But in Warsaw I made a nice big juicy long one in which I rave about the city's Stalinist architecture, interview my fellow artistes at the Song Is You festival, look at some art, throw some bouncy balls down a street, get a headache, eat cold herring in apple sauce, and run into members of design group Åbäke.



Warsaw Podcast (mp3 file, 67 mins 22 secs, 33MB)



Above you see some of the details referred to in the walky-talk -- a decorated communist-era building (now a Pizza Hut) near the Central Square, some funerary patisserie (that's what the window looked like to me, anyway). Below you see the forecurl style I was sporting as a tribute to Kantor (excellent video of The Dead Class under that link), and a local Victorian-style dandy.



And finally some of the pretty, Disneyfied architecture of the old town, and Kajsa and Benjamin from Åbäke.

Hmm, you're right, the server hosting it does seem to be temporarily unavailable. Try again later, please!

disneyfied architecture

funny how we see this folk baroque style through the lens of Disney, a copy of a copy, in this case, as you probably know the entire old town of Warzaw was reconstructed after 1944 when the Nazis blew it to bits after the uprising ...

Thanks for the podcast,
and yeah Kantor is amazing, how he organised underground theatre performances during Nazi curfew. Return of Odysseus.
I sort of have a post on him here
