HOODWINKED

I’ve always been amused and annoyed in equal measure that some major art galleries, some of the public and many ‘investors’ have the wool pulled over their eyes by some very famous artists.

I’m hoping that Grayson Perry, the Perry Mason of the art world, who is delivering the first of the Reith lectures on Radio [...]

ARE WE VICTIMS OF OUR UPBRINGING?

To a limited degree Peabrains can multitask. By this I mean they usually remember to breath while doing something else.
I was enjoying my bowl of cereal the other morning (and managing to breath at the same time) when Lo, she is a terrible Goddess started spouting some pearls of wisdom from the kitchen just as [...]

A HA’P’ORTH WORTH OF TAR

Lo, she is a terrible Goddess and I went to see this sculpture in Bexhill …

… which is hanging onto the roof of the De La Warr Pavilion. It’s by Richard Wilson and is called “Hang On A Minute Lads, I’ve Got A Great Idea …” and is based on the final scenes of the [...]

EIGHT FOOT SQUARE

Hang on … that’s 12 square feet!
AN ODE
What would you do in an eight foot square?
Wear top hat and tails? – trés debonair
Or wobble about and get bad mal de mer?
Or perhaps cut your hair in a large barber’s chair?
There might be the sight of a huge grizzly bear
Or a model in gold of a [...]

IT’S IN THE BAG

I’m organised. Everything is ready. Roll on Saturday! [that reminds me – buy some deodorant]

Healing Magic Hands made a comment the other day that has made me go bananas and buy the bestest gingernuts in the world … [actually they were on offer… somebody’s God is smiling down on me].
As I’ve often heard it [...]

SECRET REVEALED!

This coming Saturday is the day that the contents of my brain will be displayed in an area Eight Foot Square.

For one afternoon only I will be stripped naked for all to see on the Stade in Hastings. I hope it isn’t going to be chilly.
As an added incentive I will be revealing my [...]

TRIAL RUN

I’ve been having a trial run for my ‘Shed Load of Stuff’ that will be showing on the Stade at Hastings, England on the 18th of August.

This has taken place in bedroom five at the Cliff Top Residence.
Lo, she is a terrible Goddess isn’t that chuffed … apparently I’ve restricted access to her drawers. I [...]

CUPBOARD LOVE

There is a cupboard in the bathroom I should have built 3 years ago … or rather there isn’t.
Yesterday Lo, she is a terrible Goddess decided to take matters into her own hands.
She bundled me out of the front door and shackled me to the roof rack and drove to the nearest DIY store and [...]

CAR STORY – Part 5

Conclusion
Lo, she is a terrible Goddess woke up in an efficient mood.
“This is ridiculous. Telephone the breakers, tell them to pick up the Volvo, and then take the hire car back. We’re going to buy either the Hyundai, I can use a cushion, or the car at the local dealers. Whoever comes up with the [...]
