The Lego store in Leicester Square (‘i’ newspaper 26/12/16):
“Street corner telephone parlour”
Bender’s description of a phone box in the year 2000 (Futurama).
Adam Curtis has released a new documentary called ‘HyperNormalisation‘. I highly recommend it. Here is a screen shot of a phone box in Russia – not in working order but I love the architecture around it.
A couple of other shows we’ve finished watching:
I really do watch too much tv…
Here are a couple from the classic ‘Twin Peaks’ :
A recent show set back in the 1960s – ‘11.22.63‘. Here we see the phone box seconds before it gets demolished in a car crash…
And yet another from ‘Person of Interest’ . This show has been great in presenting new ways to use the phone. This one gets bricked up behind a wall and still manages to work years later…
I listen to a podcast called ‘99% Invisible’. It’s an American series I have been onto for a couple of years – although I only listen in spasmodically. Podcast no. 202 is title ‘Mojave Phone Booth’ . Cool.
This goes a long way to proving that I am not alone in my fascination for phone boxes.
