Death by Sushi’ Fish can kill me. When I was very small (maybe 3 or 4 years old) my grandfather, who lost the sight of one eye from a bullet fired by a German sniper (fortunately not a very good one) during the Battle of the Somme in World War 1, wiped my face with the corner of his apron, an apron he had used to wipe his filleting knife on. He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
A misogynist is a person who hates or doesn’t trust women
Misogynist is from Greek misogyn?s, from the prefix miso- “hatred” plus gyn? “a woman.” The English suffix -ist means “person who does something.” Can also mean entrenched prejudices against women.
Original sin: Ancestral sin, is the Christian doctrine of humanity’s state of sin resulting from the fall of man, stemming from Adam’s rebellion in the Garden of Eden. This condition has been characterized in many ways, ranging from something as insignificant as a slight deficiency, or a tendency toward sin yet without collective guilt, referred to as a “sin nature”, to something as drastic as total depravity or automatic guilt of all humans through collective guilt. Guilt is a pointless emotion, we all steal (I’ll steal any creative idea if I want to make it mine) lust (I adore your arse) and indirectly murder – I don’t give a shit about sin (maybe?) so fucking sue me.

On Sunday I went to the premier of Garry Smout’s video of ‘Trees Dance Naked’. I have a small cameo role in this Gothic (?) tale of unrequited love and murder. Not sure I will be collecting a supporting actor Oscar in the near future…
I found this broken marble angel’s head in a bin in Birmingham.
Recycling is processing used materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for “conventional” waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to virgin production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” waste hierarchy.

Soft pink landscapes (1980) Richard Hamilton A landscape of soft focus and toilet paper – a turgid landscape. Collotype and Screenprint – text and image. A remembered exhibition.
Rediscoveringthe printing process after nearly 40 years has been an interesting process – disappointingly modern inks are not as rich in colour (earthy colours are very plastic like) and modern waterbased inks don’t become part of the surface, they sit on it, which is incredibly frustrating – the reason I took up printing in the first place was because of the absorbed flatness of the pigments.
I have also had the urge to do a series of paintings based around the title ‘In God We Trust’ but that will have to wait.
The act of being creative is a love hate thing – The Beauty and The Beast someone fetch a priest (ref. David Bowie)
Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la Bête) is a traditional fairy tale. The first published version of the fairy tale was a rendition by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, published in La jeune américaine, et les contes marins in 1740. The best-known written version was an abridgement of her work published in 1756 by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, in Magasin des enfants, ou dialogues entre une sage gouvernante et plusieurs de ses élèves; an English translation appeared in 1757. The tale has perhaps been made most recently famous by the retelling in the 1991 Disney film.

Last November I had some simple answers to a few simple questions I’d asked Lidwine returned – I was forwarded this YouTube video a few days ago and decided to give it a polite nonchalant glance (I’d had a few beers and was a bit bored and thought ‘Entertain Me‘!) – I began to listen and guess what it was charming (a pretty naff word to use) I was captured. The interview…
