This week’s roundup comes from outer space, prison gangs and some good London folk music. Upworthy pointed me in the direction of some strange things that are happening to Astronauts upon returning to earth. Also a collection of Californian prison polaroids have just been put on sale for a staggering $45,000 and FACT have done a sweet roundup of Bandcamp releases so you don’t have to, one of which comes from Various Productions Ian Carter’s curve ball folk release “Stick In The Wheel” it is ace!
Marfa Journal # 1 is a new printed publication based in London, inspired by Marfa, TX and made by artists for artists.

Follow The Goodhood Store on Instagram for more info..if any.
If you have had the chance to visit The Goodhood Life Store over the last month or so you will have noticed that we have a variety of plants occupying our selection of pots and vases. We have been inundated with requests for the plants so have decided to make them available to buy when you purchases any of the pots or vases at The Goodhood Life Store.
