Wednesday night finds us swallowing Beck's and not photographed. Bollywood painted posters advertising the videos dominance are flashy and bright. Friend asks can you do paintings and videos and why is it ok to show what would just be a fragment of a film you see in the cinema. I easily demonstrate the errors in his premises and reasoning.

This is a show of spectacle, glittery and fun. The films are a little sexy, rubber catsuits, and mostly silly, musical dogs, and not inviting serious thought, their loud music and striking images fine for a while. The smoking shoes in a shed is a nice trick and smells good. Ok it's ok for now.
