Two blogs about a whole lot of nothing

Death Drive

Hold the phone! A post! 

Are you over the shock? Me too. Just about. I've quit Facebook for April because it's just depressing, and instead I hope to blog more. I'm also getting reacquainted with Twitter. 

Anyway, Death Drive by Dean Rogers is a mesmerising photographic study of spots where celebrities met their grisly fate. Travelling through Europe and the US, he visited the exact spot at the exact time of impact, recording the last thing people such as Helmut Newton, James Dean, and Jackson Pollack would have seen. Eerie stuff.
