…from me and Caravaggio!
…from me and Caravaggio!
I wouldn’t be so trite as to suggest that a hoarding could be as impressive as a painting by one of the great masters, but this one outside the National Gallery in London is very impressive.
I spent an hour walking around the new exhibition, Beyond Caravaggio, and am planning to go back for another hour as soon as I get the chance.
In Finland, kids are going crazy for Hevisaurus, a dinosaur heavy metal band!
Get ’em while they’re young!
“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.”
People are dragging this scene from Billy Madison up practically every time Donald Trump makes an appearance on TV. But, I reckon that it’s worth memorising for any situation in which you have to listen to an ill-considered opinion!
“Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
The writer and director of Bitter Lake has a new film that looks even more interesting and disturbing in equal measures:
“HyperNormalisation tells the extraordinary story of how we got to this strange time of great uncertainty and confusion – where those who are supposed to be in power are paralysed – and have no idea what to do. And, where events keep happening that seem inexplicable and out of control – from Donald Trump to Brexit, the War in Syria, the endless migrant crisis, and random bomb attacks. It explains not only why these chaotic events are happening – but also why we, and our politicians, cannot understand them.”
