23 v 08

Mersey Bar Pilot Boat

We spent last Friday trying to kick some life into our ‘Figures of 08’ project. We put the project live in December but didn’t have the time to give it a proper publicity push. Marc wrote about ‘Figures of 08’ previously, it’s a capital of culture themed project that asks you to send us photographs of unintentional ’08’s that you come across. There’s a slideshow and a google map of the photographs submitted so far.

Discussing how to kickstart our project, Marc showed me a trailer for the new Jim Carrey film ‘The Number 23‘ on Friday. The film seems to be about a man who sees negative patterns in his life that always point to the number 23. I spent a pretty fruitless afternoon on Saturday looking for new ’08’s, it was annoying to walk out of the Maritime Museum and be confronted with what I now presume to be our nemesis number adorning the side of the pilot boat docked alongside.
