    Stuff that I really like...

    I really like BALTIC. I was there last month and the building itself has a great view from the very top where you can just chill out and read.

    Those exhibitions look really interesting but it's a shame the spiel that accompanies the images of the shows is so unenlightening and contrived. I'd rather read what the artist has to say about her own work, whatever form that might take, than trying to animate the resident copywriter's recycled drivel.

    i'm not sure there's a particular medium people use nowadays - anything goes and that's a good thing in my book. i'm not keen on the seemingly fashionable return to impenetrable 'conceptual' object-making though.

    also, would totally agree with seth on the stewart lee front.

    Have either of you been watching his comedy vehicle? Would you recommend it as I do like some of the older stuff of his that I've seen.

  11. i haven't seen a lot of the new series but was a big fan of the last and what i saw him do as stand up at west yorkshire playhouse a year ago or so. his newer stuff is even more self aware and self-refelexive which i think can feel like it lacks generosity towards the audience but in a weird way that makes it funnier.

    I find myself being more interested in the art process rather than the final outcome these days. This is a nice video.
