  1. It's ok, it was rendered safe by years of self-medication.

    12 Rules For Life - Dr Jordan Peterson

    The main message I get is self-determination and responsibility. Watched the link China posted above, worth a watch with an open mind. Sadly, the interviewer did not.

    12 Rules For Life - Dr Jordan Peterson

    Simply, he enunciates and rationalises what we all feel is the truth. One of his early rules is stand up straight, shoulders back. Sounds simple doesn't it? But the psychology behind it is actually very profound. About half way through reading the book now, and am sure one of the rules will be something along the lines of "if they suck you dry, dont give them the juice".

    Montserrat Caballé dies at 85

    Freddy was a fabulous entertainer and he sought out the more classical in his latter years. I saw Queen at Knebworth in 1986 and was blown away. In truth, I do not think I have ever been to a musical event that has had the lasting memory of that. I went by accident really, I was living in England and a friend asked if he got me a ticket too could he stay at my house so he could go. No problem, ( I had watched the Live Aid concert and loved the Queen set, but still not a consummate fan) and there is quite a story about getting there, but I bumbled around watching Status Quo etc. But when Queen came on it was the best concert I have ever been to. To see thousands of hands shoot up on Radio GaGa was actually emotional. Since then, I have been a Queen devotee and the stuff that Freddy did solo was just amazing, including Barcelona. One of the best albums ever is Made in Heaven, every track has an immense presence and has the most sublime Christmas song; A Winters Tale. This may not be a technically astute review or plaudit but I just know how good Queen and Freddy have made me feel for almost 30 years.

    I think half the point is Banksy demonstrating the stupidity of the 'value' attached to (his) art and then the even greater stupidity of the value attached to the destruction! It is not up his arse, I think it is a very clever stunt to make you think. Much like most of his art, just Google it, he really does satirise very well. In no way am I an art farty type, but his very simple images convey so much commentary. My favourite is the sneaky maid lifting up the plaster on a wall to hide the sweepings. Just other simple stuff like Draw the Raised Bridge in Hull. Clever, humourous and thoughtful and the fact he remains anonymous and puts his work out into the community without 'ownership' confirms his integrity.

    I think they probably have learnt a very valuable lesson - that picture is probably worth a lot more than they paid for it now.

    Your first thought is that it has destroyed the piece, but possibly it has enhanced the value. I do like Banksy.

    Best to be missing a pen than an anus.
  13. Also a charge is not the same as a conviction?

    On the topic of implants, I would try one and if I liked it go for two.
