Heres another little something.

UCL has little fantastic museums.

We are collecting the set.

See! We dont just glibly go on about modern art and being sad and penniless.

Oo thats a good link.

At the UCL Art Gallery there was a cabinet on our favourite George Orwell.

Down and Out in Paris and London.

It had old books. Like a British Library exhibition but shorter and freer.

We think thats always better.

It had some other interesting cabinets and a display all about londontown from contemporary artists.

Fascinating skyscrapers based on the three little pigs.

There is also a japaneseish garden for sunning. We like japan and sun and peace.

Today me and the boy wonder drifted through our fine capital on a tidal wave of cruxifying depression.

First we drifted to books for free.

Books are normally calming. Free is normally calming.

We needed more calming.

On the way home our cruxifying depression wave came to rest at the shores (this metaphore has no future) of the Haunch of Venison.

It used to be in that wondrous place off regent st but now its a bit less glam on New Bond St.

But still wondrous for the soul.

The boy wonder basically likes big colourful shapes and that is what he got.

Listen to this! Its interesting… You know fontana guides? To artists, philosophers and what not… Well… Some were not published and Jamie Shovlin has created covers for them using a possibly spurious system based on facts such as word counts and… Whether they were a nobel prize winner.

Im sometimes not the best at describing how wondrous things are.

We love art related to human being attempts to create order in the cruxifyingly depressing randomness of life.

We love colour wheels and keys and eavesdropping on art conversations.

See goetherocks.blogspot.co.uk

Anyway It reminded us of Boetti @Tate and his random categorising ofvthe uncategorisable.

Anyway big brightly coloured book covers…. Go.

Its free.
