Things I have learnt or loved on late

First pictures of the stunning Church of Santa Monica in Madrid by Vicens & Ramos Architects (right) / Björk sings No Limits by 2Unlimited / Japan plans to build a space elevator: 22,000 miles into space / A whole new meaning to the office treadmill / The extraordinary heroism of Witold Pilecki, the man who deliberately got himself arrested and sent to Auschwitz (via) / Nick Cave to write the score for the movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. But does The Road need a score? Silence would seem a more appropriate accompanyment to the end of the world / That the Bristol Sound is back. And Mark Stewart with it / That highbrow magazines are putting on sales despite the gloom
