The city of Bristol, will be the first topic, in this section of the blog. Bristol is the sixth biggest city in England with a population of about 1,000,000.Historically, a port city with a lot of links to the early slave trade.
Culture is generally the biggest claim to fame of the city of Bristol a finalist in the European city of culture, which was somehow in a moment of madness I'm sure give to Liverpool.
such as dub and trip-hop, being the hometown for artist's such
as Portishead, Massive Attack. More Notably they were home
to some good DJ's such as the infamous DJ Derek, who at 69
pumps out the beats in the most noteworthy of ways.
In regards to Art, I'm sure Bristol has populated the world with countless play-rights, poets, and generic artists, however here,
Special mention must be made to the world renowned Graffiti artist: Banksy.
Banksy has received popular acclaim for his politically incorrect, pieces all over the world, but mostly in Bristol his hometown. On the right is one of his most famous piece which is on the bottom of a very busy street.
Sadly nowerdays, celebrities and big business men, find that it somehow acceptable to buy pieces of Banksy. Which, completely defeats the entire object of his pieces, and should be a crime against art. Bastards.. It has also leant to the complete comercialistion of graffiti in general creating a market out of free speech.
Lastly sport, Bristol does have a Rugby and American Football Team,
Among other thing's, interestingly my father used to play Quarter Back for
Bristolian American Football team, sadly in America this may of been a
great achievement, and worth getting excited over, here it just meant he
could throw and didn't mind getting the most. However, the most important
aspect of sport in Bristol, is considered to be the football team.
Bristol City Football Club, will be the subject of the next blog, try and contain your excitement.
