Babe artwork: The plumbing

Monday 20 July 2015, 12.01am HKT


8.55pm local time, AC on so it’s 19°C (66°F)

JUST a few potato shots of how I crank out my ‘art’ (and things that pretend to be Art).

‘Crank’ being the operative word — ‘mixed media’ would be the preferred artistically pretentious description, but a helluva lot of in-between shortcuts and cheating might be a more realistic one. ‘Crap’ is perhaps more honest.

THIS will make no sense to any of you out there because I’m giving no context.

It’s just for the benefit of someone to have a contourised picture of a sheep.

Time of My Life: School in the Disco Era

Sunday 17 May 2015, 12.01am HKT

6.33am local time, Fri 15 May 2015, air conditioner on (20°C, 68°F)

LET’S go into the Time Tunnel for a bit today.

At the Temple of Apollo (actually northwest London), we replied in our good old English tongue merely to convince ourselves that none of us could understand each other; but I noticed that when I smiled slightly on concluding, others did likewise. This fact, and the similar occurrences of our lives, made us unable to resist the temptation to leave. The crisp, freshly polluted air of the town air outside the cave acted as an immediate tonic, and I felt a new life and new courage coursing through me.

BECAUSE of a subsystem error routine in my right shoulder, I’ve not updated the background image for last month and only now getting round to the November one.

Carpet and walnut side table, by me, taken sometime in November 2014.

It’s not the best of wallpapers, but you get the idea…
