New viewing

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 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…

Mojave Phone Booth

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.

It has led me to a movie I didn’t know about ‘Mojave Phone Booth’ (2006) and the Wikipedia page on the artefact itself – you guessed it, a phone box in the Mojave desert.

This goes a long way to proving that I am not alone in my fascination for phone boxes.
