Wow, thanks for photos and information.
I'm glad that art galleries still allow pretentious dressers.
No problem. It was pretty overwhelming, sifting through all the artwork that was on display. I took frequent breaks so my judgment wouldn't go wonky.
You know what, I didn't see a single person wearing a beret, which I thought was criminal. Marco's going to Paris next week, so hopefully he will have a chance to get me a beret. I can wear one now that I no longer have a Giant Head.
I remember the furore over 'God is Great' and was disappointed that they never showed the piece when talking about it. I think it has the potential to be a very important piece, if only people would stop being sectarian, and look at the opportunity the work could inspire. Half full people, half full.
Sorry, censorship (on religious grounds) always makes me angry. Feel free to delete this comment.
Yeah, I thought it was pretty ridiculous. Certainly the work is provocative and deliberately so, but I hardly think it's hateful.
I won't be deleting your comment. It's not like you came to my journal and said anonymously, "YUR NOT XTIAN BURN IN HELL AHTEIST SKUM."

Naked, no problem. Green I can handle - but man, is she tall!
PS - Spaced is on its way back home. 100% Fried Gold.
There was a miniature version of her at the art fair: See here.
I almost died of the cute.
Lovely, thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I hope that you perhaps took the opportunity to make a back-up copy. ;-)
I think it's probably going to have to make a second journey fairly soon, to another LJ friend.
I love the photos you post - these are great. I always sit here and think "I love the photos you just posted" but I never seem to end up saying it, I'm not sure why. I wish my computer would just post the comments that I think because I have a terrible habit of commenting in my head and then thinking I did actually comment.
Ok that made sense. I'm assuming that I am actually commenting this time :P
I understand, I think. I comment in my head all the time, but sometimes I don't have the energy or time to organize my thoughts well enough to actually type things out.
Also, thank you!
Jason Martin's piece looks like obsidian. I wanna touch it too.
Received the DVDs today. Thank you very much! I totally owe you a package of Cool Stuff.
Yay! Anything gay and/or English and/or chocolate will do!
Haha, I know exactly what to get for you. *rubs hands together gleefully*
Hi, you can delete this reply, but I just wanted to tell you that i 'stole' some of your posts and linked them on my LJ. It's a few from when you first got to London. I thought about doing some myself, but yours are very good, so I just stole them. If you want, I can take them off.
Hey, no problem. They're all public entries, and I'm flattered that you thought they were useful enough to link. You know, I thought I had you on my default view (which means I would have seen the post right away) but when I went to Edit Custom Friends Groups, I discovered that, uh, you weren't on my list. OOPS. That's fixed now.
Yes, I do think you are great a writing. Thanks for letting me link to the posts. :)
You gotta pay Latham his dues; mid-eighties and still 'stickin it to the man'. I wonder if he could
gum his way through eat a Tate Guide?
Talking of arty stuff (your photo's are wonderful by the way) did anyone catch the repeat of Banksy's gallery opening on 'The culture show' Beeb2 tonight? I wondered if you were there in the crowd.
