Erik Visits an American Grave, Part 921

This is the grave of William Shirer. Born in Chicago in 1904, Shirer grew up the son of a lawyer. But his father died when he was a boy and so the family lost their money.

The next James Bond: 10 stars who could take over from Daniel Craig

It’s a long time since we’ve had to speculate in earnest about the identity of the next James Bond. Of the six actors to have played 007 in the official series, nobody’s done it longer than Daniel Craig.

And while Sean Connery and Roger Moore both headlined more movies, the Craig era will go down as one of the finest, with both Casino Royale and Skyfall deserving to be ranked alongside the 59-year-old franchise’s best. Which means that whoever gets the gig as the next James Bond actor has some big shoes to fill.

But Banksy’s painting with a built-in paper shredder isn’t the only one that’s more than a little ephemeral. Consider 2014’s Spy Booth, consisting of three espionage-minded figures on either side of a phone booth in Cheltenham. Given its interaction with the environment around it, its distinctive sense of humor and its criticism of governmental surveillance, the painting quickly clicked with viewers.
