“You’re going to love this.”
“I love this.”

Except she didn’t really love it.
She virtually loved it.
Or really loved the virtual.


What’s this staffy blithering on about?
Art, innit.
#Dreamkubrick @somersethouse.
There was a virtual reality bit to answer your question.
I think it was from ‘2001-A Space Odyssey’ but I could find a guidebook.


Still it was very, very good…
Look at this!

And this!

Profound too, innit.

Some words:

Kissing on the lips

My whole life depends on you now


The agony of waiting

Don’t lean back that way you might fall

My fathers death


I was going to ask her to marry me

Happiness means being close to the one you love that’s all

A scooter

A croissant

A police car

A parrot

A high heeled shoe


Let me explain.


The Museum of Innocence @somersethouse is a series of labelled cabinets containing objects relating to a fictional story of a fictional relationship.


When I put it like that.


“If the line that joins moments together creates time then the line that joins objects creates stories.”

They put it like that.

It’s really good.

It was quite a lot to take in.

#bigbangdata @somersethouse.

90% of the data in the world today was created in the last two years alone


It was quite a lot to tweet.

It was quite a lot to Instagram.

It was quite a lot to Audioboom.

“I tried to capture my laughs which was really hard and got in the
way of enjoying life.” Giorgia Lupu and Stephanie Posavec.

At that point we gave up.


Perhaps the most interesting bit was former National Surveillance Agency employee William Binney and his concerns about our apathy towards government surveillance.

“We haven’t had anything to say so far.”

As programmes he’d designed to report on enemy foreign states were

“Turned inward.”

Best exhibition of the year,

“Oo we get to go underground’!”

Words to that effect.


Its basically the bum of Somerset House and its got some pots in.

Big pots, mind.

But still just pots.

It was cool being underground tho.

Oh coffins too.


Upstairs is a war painter thats actually good and then theres Isabella Blow who’s name makes me laugh for some reason but costs 12 pounds so we @thedogwhatblogs couldn’t be bothered.

Somerset House.


Tim Walker. Some words: Fantasy, fairytales, beetles, monty python, sand. There was one bum.

Cartier Bresson. Some words: Black and White, colour, no bums.

Imaginary view. Some words: polystyrene, nice invigilator, black and white


Thats called a contemporary arts review.

You cant be both interesting and funny all the time, kids.

London 2012 is so passe. The cool kids are already thinking about Rio 2016.

Theyve gone and done an exhibition.

Theyve gone and done it at somerset house.

And theyve gone and done it v well.

Some fab art and shit.

No boobs but where there were boobs and much more besides was in the unlikely setting of the National Gallery. Metamorphosis.

And not just the creamy goddess boobs of the Titian masterpieces…

Oh no, son.

There is caged woman.

Inspired by the creamy boobed goddesses.

Shes in a box and u get to peep.

Or stare (see @albiestar).

I eventually dragged him (hey… Hes had a rough time…) to see the pretty colours of Chris Ofili's trinidadian tributes.

Hey… Aliteration.

Hey… Trinidad is everywhere.

Theyve gone and done it in Kilburn. Tricycle Theatre.

Some fab spoken word and shit. “Attitudinal Metamorphosis” #apparently.

Its all free.

We like free.

It was not short.

But we hotfooted it halfway to squeeze in 'offender' at cineworld wood green.

The film, not the lifestyle choice.

'Visceral' would be a good word.

Lets have visceral then.

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,
