Overhyping is a very real danger.

“Oo.” He exclaimed. “Theres an exhibition reimagining churchill at the national portrait gallery.”

It was one picture.

A good picture.

But not worth a whole poster.


From Churchill to Church.

Frederic Church.

We went here before when it wasnt on.

You may or may not recall.


Here is an opinion:

“What lovely landscapes!”

Honestly though it may be one room but thats not overhyping.

Its an understatement.

And its free.

“What artistry in the brushstrokes!”

Shut up Colin.

Sometimes a blog or a day starts out as one thing but turns into another.

So naturally there was a meetup. Knitting. Noone home.

So clearly then there was a cafe and some irritatedness.

So then there was a museum (Cuming… Not, disappointingly about the scottish sometime gay star of 90s BBC xmas flick and Heinink staple 'Bernard and the Genie.')

Worth a look. Old shit. Dickens. Hes everywhere. Like Trinidad and Korea. Free.

But dont go to south london on purpose.

So then there was a gallery. Peter Blake at the Fine Art Society. Good to have a curator for art or life. He knows his onions. Nice to have fine art and modern art together. Great. Free.

He's a bit everywhere too. He's 80 or something.

Yes, there were boobs.

So then an evening activity. Or the first one.

We wanted to go on about 'Laughter Yoga' again.

About the importance of play and how the Southbank looks like a grownups playground with wheels, fairs, arts, bright colours and…talking wooden boxes.

But then we saw a film. 'The Imposter.'

Which twisted and turned all over the place.

Like a day. Like a relationship.

It was short too. We like short.



Theres someone sodcasting #onthistrain. Sub human scum.

I like to think of myself as the new samuel pepys.


Today we took advantage of the courtauld gallery's monday free time 10-2.


We like free.

Also there was a brief talk.

We like talks.

We like brief.

Go when theres a talk its much better.

Lots of old pix and the drawing exhibition is mildly interesting for 15 minutes.

You get your moneys worth anyway.

You can combine it with an awesome rolling stones exhibition too.

Or origami if youre inclined like the boy wonder @albiestar.


Why not,
