Fucking Nora!

I apologise for the vulgar nature of my titular ejaculation, but the excuse is that I've been invited to perform my latest performance art malarkey in... Brussels! Fare, accomodation, and a fee. "Please let me know as soon as possible."

Shelly performing her

My former collaborator in Glasgow emails me, (that's her above, performing her video performance piece "Slow Furniture Love"), apologising for the short notice, and asking if I'd like to do my thing as part of her show there next month. (Minimalist image-free website here.)

Fucking hellerama, what an opportunity.

If that picture is any indication of what I can expect from the show, then I will certainly try and make it to Brussels.

I don’t know what she’ll be doing but it will be riveting. She’s really talented.

And that would be great! Let me know who you are and I’ll get you a drink (and that should be some drink, it being Brussels).

[Edit: er, from Shanghai? Jeez, don’t come that far. I’ll get performance anxiety].

I shall try to divert the GF from boring old Switzerland. A friendly eurocrat has a castle in the suburbs for his mistress, who might well take a fancy to you.

Ooer, it’s getting better every minute!

Brussels in the summertime! You can’t say no to that! Is your malarkey art on YouTube anywhere?

No, there isn’t, and I need to sort my internet presence out. I can hardly tout myself around the cultural capitals of Europe without a good digital calling card.

I’ve got some stills from our last show in Glasgow but they’re a long way short of publishable quality as my basic holidaymaker camera can’t cope with low light and movement. I’m hoping that Shelley can film this one properly so that we’ll have something to show people.

That’s interesting, a fantasy which depends for its power on its not being realised. Not far off the way that me and Shelley interact sometimes.

I’ve got a really soft spot for the bi-lingual country that brought us rasberry flavoured beer and Enzo Schifo… and it’s just got a bit softer. The country as you may have noticed hosts more than its fair share of expat British bloggers of quality (Belgian Waffle is a particular favourite)which has also to be a good sign (in fact I may as of today and purely on the strength of this observation adopt a policy of judging countries solely by the calibre of English people who choose to live in them). All things considered a riproaring show is in the offing I would wager.

Now, I’ve had a very good start to the day with a bit of late 90s progressive house from Enzo Scifo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-ID9xC5dig

and I’m now going to watch a couple of clips of Enzo Schifo, who apparently, “is legend of Belgian football midfielder!!” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8DDNQIw898

And the connection between the two is compounded with the delicious serendipity that the house track features on a compilation by Dave Seaman!

M / 56 / Bristol, "the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England" -- John Betjeman [1961, source eludes me].

WLTM literate woman, 40-65. Must have nice tits, a PhD, and an mdma factory in the shed, although the first on its own will do in the short term.


There are plenty of bastards who drink moderately. Of course, I don't consider them to be people. They are not our comrades.

The more democratised art becomes, the more we recognise in it our own mediocrity.
James Meek

Tell me, why is it that even when we are enjoying music, for instance, or a beautiful evening, or a conversation in agreeable company, it all seems no more than a hint of some infinite felicity existing apart somewhere, rather than actual happiness – such, I mean, as we ourselves can really possess?
Turgenev, Fathers and Sons

I hate the iPod; I hate the idea that music is such a personal thing that you can just stick some earplugs in your ears and have an experience with music. Music is a social phenomenon.
Jeremy Wagner

La vie poetique has its pleasures, and readings--ideally a long way from home--are one of them. I can pretend to be George Szirtes.

Using words well is a social virtue. Use 'fortuitous' once more to mean 'fortunate' and you move an English word another step towards the dustbin. If your mistake took hold, no-one who valued clarity would be able to use the word again.
John Whale

One good thing about being a Marxist is that you don't have to pretend to like work.

The working man is a fucking loser.
