Tonight at the tap room in margate #libertines #rustyjames #etc A post shared by Carl Bârat (@carlbarat78) on May 24, 2018 at 6:11pm PDT On Wednesday, the band also performed to a crowd of just 80 people at Margate’s Tom Thumb Theatre. Earlier this year, The Libertines confirmed plans to open a hotel/studio in the Kent town. Frontman Pete Doherty first teased the plans in 2016, saying: “We’re gonna open a Libertines hotel. With a studio, nightclub, a bar,” adding that it would be “open to anyone who’ll pay the bills”. It’s now been revealed that the five storey, 10-room property will go by the name The Albion Rooms, with an opening date and launch party to be announced in due course. A press release states: “Inspired by the celluloid co-habitation antics of the Beatles and the Monkees, Carl, Gary, John and Peter had been looking for a creative home: a living art space, a Warholian factory, with guest rooms, a bar and studio.”
thetechedvocate.orgKids code their own 3D creations with new blocks-based design programSpread the love This article was written by Chris Berdik On a recent Saturday at Einstein’s Workshop, a maker space outside Boston, boisterous kids were busy with Legos, mini motors and gears, magnetic tiles, pipe cleaners, posterboard, markers and tape. In a side room, about a dozen elementary and middle school students were learning computer-aided design (CAD) for 3D printers. Their instructors shut the door, but couldn’t completely keep out the creative chaos. Nor did they want to.

tv.avclub.comThe Expanse changes gears... in space!Every week while the season is airing, I log onto a website and click on a link for the latest episode of The Expanse; and every week, I breathe a sigh of relief at the running time. Out of every drama I’ve covered in the past three or four years (or more), this is the only one that consistently sticks to the 43 minute mark, week in and week out. And that is a wonderful thing, partly because it makes my job a little bit easier, but mostly because it means that the show rarely gets bogged down by pacing issues. Yes, there are occasional missteps—no matter how important she is to the series as a whole, I’m not sure the first season ever entirely justified having Avasarala around—but you never have to worry that a scene is going to drag on longer than it should, just because it could.
avclub.comImagination fuels backyard adventure in this Cardboard Kingdom exclusiveSo much of entertainment comes via screens nowadays, but when you’re a kid, there are few things as thrilling as getting together with a group of friends and going on an adventure built by your imaginations. The Cardboard Kingdom, a new children’s graphic novel from Knopf Books, has cartoonist Chad Sell working with 10 different writers to explore this idea with a young group of neighborhood kids who create magical worlds and characters out of cardboard. It’s an inclusive collection of short stories that explores different aspects of childhood and growing up with compassion, humor, and playfulness, and Sell ties all these narratives together with vibrant, expressive artwork. Sell is a friend of The A.V. Club—he drew a short comic for 2014’s Comics Week—and while he’s best known for his stunning portraits of RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants, The Cardboard Kingdom showcases how well his animated art style works for stories geared toward a younger audience.
