Populist: 15-22 June

Populist brings you a bite sized round up of the best of Londonist this week. Catch up on the coolest, quirkiest, most recommended and talked about stories and find out what's hot and what's happening for the week ahead.


In the news:

  • Your Olympic round up for this week: Bozza & Becks will jazz it up at Beijing, there were doubts about free swimming by 2012 and Boris was keeping an eye on costs yet also not getting round to reading key public documents.
  • We tried not to be interested in Big Brother 9 Euro 2008 got hectic round Green Lanes, with Turkey making the semis in spectacular style (and honking their hooters, way into the night)
  • And Film4 want to give you a home cinema system. Yes.
  • What's hot:

  • London got naked on bikes
  • Londonist had a ball at Meltdown iTunes Festival line up announced.

    Check out Music Choice and Arts Ahead for more.


    Over at Kudocities, we asked where do you get back to nature? Have you got a good idea for a non-sock puppet Olympic mascot? Will the Olympic handover party rock your world and is Auntie Beeb too Londoncentric?

    Why not join the conversation?

    Images L-R clockwise: Central St Martin's Degree Show, Naked Bike Ride, Bush Protest & Spaceape at Meltdown. You can keep track of our most popular posts by checking out Favourites or using the Populist tag.

    Many thanks to David Topping at Torontoist for inspiration!
