If bands could get to No. 1 on the charts for ingenuity rather than record sales, then the amusingly irreverent unsigned trio, The Get Out Clause, would win hands down. The English indie band exploited a legal loophole to make an innovative video for their single “Paper” on the cheap.
“We wanted to produce something that looked good and that wasn’t too expensive to do,” says guitarist Tony Churnside, 29, who met the other band members at The University of Salford in Manchester. Desperate to make a video for their new single Paper, but with no budget to hire a crew, the Manchester guys decided to let the state do the filming instead. The band used footage from some of the the many CCTV surveillance cameras stationed around their home city of Manchester to create their own music video. The Get Out Clause played in front of CCTV cameras at 80 locations (out of the 13 million CCTV “security” cameras currently deployed throughout England), including at Deansgate, on a bus, on a zebra crossing and in the Castlefield Amphitheater. They then approached the companies who owned the cameras and used England’s Freedom of Information Act to obtain the footage.
The images were then pieced together and used as the video for one of the band’s songs, “Paper.” James Thomson of the band said, “You can’t help but go somewhere and not see one of these CCTV cameras, so we just thought we’d regurgitate what was available to us.” Tony Churnside, the band’s guitarist, said: “Legally, you are supposed to be able to get this footage back as it is information that is held about you. The vast majority of these places didn’t respond, so there was only a few we managed to get footage from in the end.” In all, the band had played in front of 80 CCTV cameras, and managed to get a quarter of the tapes back. The video ended up showing the band playing in 20 different locations throughout Manchester.
This piece includes photographs, a documentary short and the music video, “Paper.”

Nat’s Illuminati Sophisticated Secret-Societies Scam is outfucked by Petty Fareast Primitive Swindlers. In the most Corrupt Muslim Country on Planet Earth Rothschild gluttony ain’t workn’ no mo. Rothschild Kissed his $1.3B Indonesian Scam Project Goodbye. Rothschild privileged the Chinese Indonesian Scumbag Samin Tan and Christiandoired him as an Indonesian Billionaire to Chair & Fuck the Bankrupt Palm-Oil Tycoon Aburizal Bakrie outta his 50% stake in Bumi Plc Coal Mines on Rothschild behalf and by proxy. Nat Rothschild eventually owned 11% of Bumi just a price for using Rothschild influence with the Corrupt British Exchequer to list Bumi Plc Coal Mines in London. In Return! Aburizal Bakrie reciprocated big time. He Fucked both the Muthafukahuhs; Nat Rothschild & Samin Tan in their Asses. Aburizal Bakrie siphoned Bumi Liquidity to pay his debts outstanding at Credit-Suisse. Aburizal Bakrie Tumbled-down Bumi fuckn’ share in London to frictions as low as 13% off its market value. Here’s the deal. You won’t like it but take it. Aburizal Bakrie is gonna be the next Indonesian President supported by Megawati Sukarnoputri. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, will not be eligible to run in 2014. Unless one wishes to clone Rothschild Scam elsewhere just for the heck of it and end up in prison. Don’t you bother to read further. You ain’t stomach rest of trash. Your discretion is advised:
Financier Nat Rothschild has resigned from the board of Bumi Plc, the coal mining group he co-founded two years ago, attacking his partners and directors as they consider unraveling the Indonesian venture. Rothschild’s resignation comes as the board of the London-listed firm miner is looking at a $1.38 billion proposal from Indonesia’s influential Bakrie family, who co-founded the venture with Rothschild, to exit their stake and take back the firm’s operating assets. The offer last week followed an announcement by Bumi of allegations of wrongdoing at some of those Indonesian operations — including part-owned Bumi Resources — that sparked an independent investigation and heightened already strained relations between Bumi shareholders. Bumi Plc is looking into potential irregularities in more than $500 million of funds at its Indonesian subsidiaries. Rothschild’s departure follows months of troubled relations between Bumi investors, as they watched their shares tumble to a fraction of the price at which it listed in June last year. Rothschild’s call last year for a “radical clean-up,” in a letter leaked to newspapers, saw him ousted as co-chairman, and tensions had also risen between Tan, who invested $1 billion to bail out the Bakrie family, and the Bakries themselves. “Given the scale of the alleged irregularities, as well as other facts not yet in the public domain, it would be a disgrace to proceed with, or even to entertain, the proposal,” Rothschild said in a letter announcing his resignation from the board to Bumi chairman and major investor Samin Tan. “I believe that this proposal is so obviously not in the interests of minority shareholders that I find it impossible to stay on as a director. I am afraid that I have lost confidence in the ability of the [Bumi] Plc board to stand up for investors.” Rothschild said Tan, who holds a 23.8 percent stake in Bumi through a partnership with the Bakries, was complicit in the oppression of minority shareholders. Rothschild, who himself holds almost 12 percent in Bumi, also accused Tan and the Bakries of damaging Indonesia’s reputation. According to a weekend email seen by Reuters, Tan told the Bumi Plc board he would resign as chairman unless Rothschild was removed. Tan was supported by an independent non-executive director, former British diplomat Robin Renwick, who threatened to step down in a separate email also seen by Reuters. In his email, coal tycoon Tan accused Rothschild of “persistent disruptive” behavior. A spokesman for Rothschild said the comments on Tan were made on the basis of preliminary findings of the independent probe into the alleged irregularities in Indonesia, seen by the board last week. Renwick, for his part, said Rothschild had shown a “complete disregard for the principle of collective responsibility.” “What a disappointment Mr Nat Rothschild has been to us and all shareholders,” said Christopher Fong, Bakrie Group Senior Vice President. “This man has a lot to answer for, and now he has the audacity to say we have disgraced Indonesia.” Fong repeated the Bakries’ call for Rothschild to return all shares and other benefits received as commission for the venture now being taken apart. Tan could not be reached for comment and Renwick did not respond to a telephone call. Minority Shareholders Rothschild said in Monday’s letter that Tan, who borrowed heavily to fund his rescue of the Bakries, was not acting in the interests of minority shareholders in Bumi Plc and would receive more favorable treatment than smaller investors if the plan to dismantle the group went ahead. He said Tan, as a partner of the Bakries, would be reimbursed for his $1 billion, debt-funded investment at 10.91 pounds a share, against 4.30 pounds a share for other investors. The company’s stock is currently trading at 2.45 pounds. Tan said last week he expected to recover the amount initially invested but he did not give specific financial details of the kind mentioned by Rothschild. Bumi said its directors, which have appointed investment bank Rothschilds to do due diligence on the Bakrie proposal, were “unanimous” that a solution should be considered on a separation, after “irreconcilable differences” between the miner’s founders. “But they have not formed a view on value,” Nick von Schirnding, Head of Corporate Affairs at Bumi Plc, said. The probe on potential financial irregularities is due to conclude in the coming weeks. Indonesia’s powerful Bakrie family hit out at British tycoon Nathaniel Rothschild Tuesday after he resigned from the board of Bumi Plc saying he was a “threat to all shareholders” of the mining firm. In the latest saga of a row analysts say has attracted the attention of possible foreign investors in Indonesia, the Bakries said Rothschild should have quit earlier to avoid Bumi Plc’s stock price from plunging. “Mr. Rothschild is a threat to all shareholders who are fighting for the best interests of the company, and ultimately for themselves and the investors they represent,” Bakrie Group spokesman Chris Fong said. “There are no winners in this deal anymore, it’s pure damage control.” Rothschild’s resignation on Monday from Bumi, which he co-founded with the Bakries, came as its board considers a proposal by the Indonesian family to sever their ties with the company and buy its most productive Indonesian mines. The long-running power struggle has seen the London-listed firm’s shares slump more than 70 percent this year.

Take a break from presidential politics for one of the most important stories you'll read this week...
TrapWire is a surveillance system designed by former high-ranking government officials now working for an entity called Abraxas, which utilizes footage from CCTV cameras located all over the country. The video footage is then downloaded to a secure server and analyzed as a means to predict crimes or criminal behavior before they happen. It’s all very Minority Report, and as that film reminded us, altogether dangerous.

North west water company United Utilities is appealing for help after sightings of an unusual-looking animal in the sewer network.
The creature, which one worker described as being 'far too big for a rat, standing upright on strong back legs' has been spotted in sewers in the north west in recent weeks.
The water company has today published CCTV footage of the creature, filmed by sewer engineers during a pipe survey, in the hope that the public can help to provide answers.
All footage can be viewed Here.
Mike Wood, United Utilities regional wastewater network manager said: "Several of our employees have reported sightings of some kind of animal. We've reviewed the CCTV footage, and it certainly doesn't look like a typical sewer rat.
"We are hoping that the public can help us. The animal could possibly be a domestic pet or feasibly, an animal which has escaped from the zoo. It seems to be feeding on fat deposits which have built up on the inside of pipes.
"We're asking the public to look at the footage, and to contact us if they can shed any light on what the creature is, and where it might have come from."

A bungling burglar broke into a bakery, found himself trapped in a locked store room and then struggled to get back out.
As this CCTV footage shows, the youngster had entered the Melbourne building via a skylight but soon discovered he wasn't where he wanted.
After a moment of panic he tried to climb back out by stacking a pile of containers, but they toppled and he fell.
He then tried using some shelves to get out… but again ended up on the floor when they too collapsed.
While he did eventually manage to get out, it wasn't before looking directly into a security camera. After the image was released by police a 19-year-old handed himself in.
