What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll

John Stoddart’s ‘It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll’ exhibition in Whitstable

 

On Friday 7th October John Stoddart hosted a private view of an exhibition titled It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll at The Fish Slab Gallery in Whitstable, Kent.

 

 

Amongst the twenty-two photographs on display – all captured in the days when musicians weren’t surrounded by minders and PRs and all available as limited editions of five – are images of Nick Cave, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Michael Hutchene, Iggy Pop and Paul Weller. They are remarkable in their rawness and as a group truly represent a decade when musicians lived to excess.

 

Attended by guests from as far away as London, Warwickshire and West Sussex, the evening was a bit of a happening. Amongst those present were characters from all walks of life and as well as lawyers, models and businessmen were a gypsy, a judge and a radio presenter. A great time was had by all and many complimented Stoddart’s unusual presentation of the photographs with the use of bulldog clips and a lovely singer named Kat Parker of Carmen and The Devil. Twelve images were sold on the night and a further series of sales followed on Saturday morning.

 

It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll runs until Tuesday 11th October at The Fish Slab Gallery, 11 Oxford Street, Whitstable, Kent, CT5 1DB. Prices range from £250 to £350 and enquiries should be directed to John Stoddart at info@johnstoddart.co.uk
