(CR001) Cord Roll
1300UTC, Camden Town - Northern Line
“The first child. Born on the tube in London. I’d spend a few days a month there, shuttling up and back to Europe through either of the 3 greatest Asian cities on earth - Hong Kong, Singa’s or Bangkok. It was always good landing in London, my home away from home. Cold and dark but it always promised a surprise, fun nights out in cocktail bars and long days strolling through galleries. A lot of my mates had moved there after high school, so I had no shortage of tour guides. The tube is what connects it all - the blood vessels of the city. I’ve always found the tube amazing. You descend at some point in the city only to pop up somewhere across town, to me it’s like a time machine. Music enhances every experience for me so, like everyone else on the tube, I’d pass the time between stops with headphones in, listening to the Killers and Kings of Leon. My phone would often run short of battery, which made using maps a bit tough. That made finding the next bar even tougher. Carrying the cords was a pain. They’d get tangled, or I’d forget them. I found myself thinking, “What would Albert do?” That’s easy. He’d fix it"
