The Pall Mall Collective
Seeing as the whole mime scene seems to be kicking off big style in the London pigeon community, I thought I’d go out and about to see it in action. I checked in with Wilf beforehand to get his spin on the top locations, and it looks like statues are in.
These dudes are known as the ‘Pall Mall Collective’, so called due to their nearness to a street of the same name:
Here they are giving it large with the ‘staying still for as long as you can’ routine. Respect.
‘Worhsipping the Boot’ they called it.
For those of you not yet up on the mime, which is fair enough as it’s really an emerging art form, Duncan, the one on the left boot, is apparently ‘shying away from the act of war’ whilst Eliza on the right looks on in adoration demonstrating undying love.
This shape, based on the same theme, is simply called ‘Oh, no’:
Everywhere you look the mime movement is staying still across all areas of London in silent protest to all sorts of shit like war, the closing of allotments and the pitying of sparrows. More importantly, Wilf’s School of Mime for Disadvantaged Pigeons has had them queueing round the block.
It’s big, and it’s getting bigger. Pigeons everywhere are learning the mime, and I reckon it won’t be long before ‘people’ join in. It’s peaceful, and it works, and I’m not talking about those fucking freaks who paint themselves gold and pretend to be something they’re not. That’s just weird. This is true mime. Mime as an art form.
I say, “Mime rocks”. Bring it on.
I’ll be out and about in London looking for more great examples of the pigeon in mime. In the meantime, if any of you spot any, email them to me and I’ll post them. This movement needs our support.
