"The Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept consolidates superlatives as one of the most precise, one of the most spartan, and certainly the darkest moon phase watch on the market today. Presented in two versions – one in red gold with a signature Moser fumé dial and another in steel with a pitch-black dial – the steel model is the talking piece."

"£11,500 is a lot of money. It'll get you a brand new ceramic Daytona and change. It's enough for a lightly used Royal Oak Offshore. With some haggling, it'll just about see you into a gold Patek Philippe Calatrava. So, why would you spend it all on a three-hander from a brand you've never even heard of?"

The literary turn in American corporate mythology.

Under this latest managerial dispensation, the worker is no longer simply treated as a Taylorite input of production but a person with hopes and dreams—with the challenge for management being the careful modulation of those aspirations in the company’s preferred image. Thus is the worker’s affective private life gradually annexed to the company’s song of itself.

Stopping by the ruins

"A bleak landscape stretches out in all directions, broken only by wind-hewed formations of sandstone. A lone traveller wanders this hostile, waterless place, looking for shelter. And then on the horizon, a line of ruined walls appears to him like an apparition. In the heat haze, they seem to hover above the ground. As he gets closer, memories of this place come back to him. Broken tents and pegs, abandoned fire pits, the signs of a camp long-since abandoned: this is the place where he once met the love of his life, now lost forever. As he wanders the ruins, he sees deer and goats grazing where he once walked with his beloved. He sees the plants of the desert bursting up through the tent where they once lay together. As the memories of this place rush back to him, the horizon flashes with thunder and the rain finally comes to the land.

"This scene is a famous one. For centuries, it appeared and reappeared throughout Arabic poetry, and became one of the primary poetic tropes of the Pre-Islamic period and the early days of Islam. It is known as wuquf 'ala al-atlal, or ‘stopping by the ruins’, and today, it has found new life in the work of a generation of artists reacting to the loss of war and state violence across the Middle East."

"If you can’t believe these words I say,
Step in, Wild Horse, and clear the way.
In comes D ick and all his men,
He’s come to see you once again.
He was once alive but now he’s dead,
He’s nothing but a poor old horse’s head."

Origins of the Da Vinci Code (2005)

"Back in 2005 - at the hight of 'Da Vinci Code' mania - I was commissioned by a publisher in New York to make a film about the background to Dan Brown's novel. Why me? Well, I had been working with and was friends with the grandaddy of the whole 'alternative history' phenomenon, co-author of "Holy Blood, Holy Grail', Henry Lincoln. Henry was concerned that there was an awful lot of nonsense being published at the time about him and the whole story behind the Da Vinci Code, so he leapt at the chance to put the record straight - and to add in what he believes is the 'true' mystery behind the hype. 'Origins of the Da Vinci Code' was born."
