Reminiscing and talking about history @waterstones cafe.


“The great challenge of looking back… Without being frozen in the process.”

Trying to reach the point where “everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.”

Conflict, time and photography @tate modern.

The Turner Prize @tate

Some words: film, can’t remember, cuts, Berlin, AstroTurf, guards, regret, can’t remember, prints, ok, being rude, film, can’t remember

Opinion: Didn’t like that, that was ok, didn’t like that, didn’t like that


Then you can go on a boat.


Sigmar Polke @tate modern.

Some words: dots, naughtiness, a funnel, splodges, potatoes, dots, Victoriana, dots

Opinion: I like that, I like that, I like that, that’s less interesting

“The main actor.”

The first thing to be said is the audience were rowdy.

Blackta @youngvictheatre.

Well there was a lot going on.

At one point someone took there shirt off and it was like a pantomime.

I definitely detected sexual hollering.

Ok not like a panto.


A good double header is Tate Modern Late Fridays and The Young Vic.

See they’re close.

Maybe some kind of beverage/meal if you have someone else to consider.

Or you can meetup through the almighty meetup.


We are sitting on the tube tapping thinking whether it was good.

It was good.

It was gritty and urban like yours truely.

I think daddy was a bit bewildered.

There was big themes and shit and swearing and shit.

Doggy let me do this too…


Tate modern blackouts, little sun, olafur eliasson, poetry and dream.

Solar powered surrealism.*

I liked it best cos you could chat people up asking for their light.

Almost like smoking cool but without the cancer.

Other people seemed “oo its dark” happy but I dont think other people were enjoying it q as much as me.

I was getting in a pickle trying to take shadow pix.

But loving it.

Theyre on the wondrous instagram which has been a life saver.

Now @thedogwhatblogs holds the purse strings…

Notionally free but u had to buy the little lamp for the equivalent of three trips to Haringey Borough FC.

But it beats taking pix of old men.




I wanted her on the left slightly…

*he asked me to provide more detail. Its like a torch round ur neck right and they turned the lights off in the gallery. Jeesh.

Being there.

This is the joy of art over tv… radio…

Film at the cinema sits in the middle.

Especially @cineworld wood green…

Its interactive… with calling out…

And multi sensory…

With coke showers.

So whether the installation its Hirstian butterflies in the Tate Modern.

Or curiously phallic/orificy stone sculptures http://www.artfirst.co.uk/  (hey we’re sooo over exposed to arty cocks and fannies thats we’re stained with the freudian) …you get to drift around and say you went.

Sometimes you can drift around v quickly.

We eat up gallery clusters.

Today at eastcastle street (ox circus).

Nice COLOUR photos (and the obligatory moody monochrome)…


It was the young people wot done em.


We also read the surrealists drifted around looking for found objects…

This does not mean… @albiestar… drifting around looking for cash points and finding eighties camp comedians in the buff…

Over exposed indeed…






best/cheapest life drawing we’ve found. nice teacher.

we like cheap… we like nice.

In Tate Modern in the big turbine hall there are people who walk up and down.

Now i believe after a while they run around saying things.

We got a bit bored and the shop was ever so close.

Let us kno what they say.


On a return visit what we liked about Damien Hirst is the way the rooms linked up and mishmashed.

Hey, yesterday on Newsnight they said “dippy doo” so we can say mishmashed.

Tell her the butterflies rock.

Let us kno what she says.



Ps south london art map tours are tiring… We'll tell u the story on instagram… A picture tells a 1000 words… Tell his lordship that #hegoeson

Coming soon…

Dog What Blogs Tours…. Ohhhhhhhh yeeeeeaaahhh

she only talked thru the reflection of a mirror OR never mind the pollocks

Think of my blog as nothing less than a guide to life itself.

We have branded the hours 4-6 as 'The Culture Shift.'

Today we were very depressed as its the school holidays…

So we thought: “Pollocks…”

Let's go to a toy museum.

And its was the dogs…

Ram packed with old toy based fun well worth 6 pounds and around 45min of life.

Tea Museums. Take note.


From the ikkle to the huge.

We promised u a biting review of @tate #modern tanks.

I was heard to remark: “A unique space that has a lasting impression.”

Seroiusly… It wasnt disappointing.

It was nice sitting in a cave watching an odd korean lady drawing snakes on another lady's neck. Its was a solid 6/10 feeling.

And then… Walking down Hornsey hotspot turnpike lane we got hit by a 'oo that was actually quite cool' 8/10 feeling.

Maybe pay for a show for 10/10 rather than cheapskate the free bits… A film in one little round room and a soundtrack about old ladies in a tiny round room.

You had to be there.

Fuck newsnight review.

Fuck radio 4.

Fuck time out.*

This is the essential review of Edvard Munch @tate.

First we want to say how much we enjoy just saying his name.

Have a try now.

So what have we got?

Some words: kisses, melty, vampires, many many boobs, staring, bad instagram photos, insanity, arrogance, death, illness, ghosty, starry night, pissed up brawl with a mate, cine films, the averted eye, no cock and compulsion.

I think that covers it.



PS Youve waited all day for that review

*We modelled the opening on Hugh Grant in ‘Four Weddings’ #fyi

“You’ll never see the stars, if you dont go out at night.”

Well this little doggy has. Filling the void with stuff.

Even when sad and confused its important to do something. Anything.

We hauled ourself to Boetti @tate modern and if relaxed us with randomness and childlike playfulness.

Combined with a free 1 on 1 tour of the Arte Povera galleries.

Tate Modern runs free tours of its permanent collections at 11, 12, 2 and 3. Top tip

Also worth treating your eyes to the squid in the Level 2 gallery which is always free and always cool.

We dragged ourself to @mylifestoryuk with sparkly, uplifting lyrics like the above and below…

“And if you took my hand would I still be blind? Cos u dont sparkle. You dont shine.”

We do. Seeking similar.
