Andy Pryke blogs about the new Birmingham-based Eccentric City magazine, which I have duly PayPal’d a couple of quid for. Soon I shall know how to navigate in fog, collect sticks, and electroplate the dead. Ah yes; you may have thought genuine eccentricity (rather than faux BritArt-style buffoonery) was on its last legs in the British Isles. You may be wrong. Perhaps it’s just become so mainstream that the media no longer notices it much.
