This is London, not Antartica, so why don't the tubes run all night,
You are my Girlfriend, not Molly Ringwald, so why won't you stay here tonight,
This is sixth form poetry not Keats or Yeats, and now we find the part that we both hate.

We love the city because it lets us down, We love the city NOT the suburbs that surround.
We love all the dirty things, that lead us to think, that maybe true love could be found.
We love the city because its how we live, We love the city cause it never loves us back.
We love it all because sometimes, even though they're hard to find, it contains all the virtues we lack.

(Hefner "We Love The City")

Cool. Tate Modern gets a bit much for me quite quickly, but I always love the Turbine Hall exhibits.

i thought it was bollocks, personally. like, quite a lot of effort went in and all that, no doubt. but really, casts of a load of boxes. bollocks. i hope it's recyclable.

I have to agree with Aidan, it's rubbish. A big pile of boxes means nothing to me, it doesn't evoke any feeling or emotion, it doesn't inform me or make me think. But who am I to try to define art.

well, I quite enjoyed the scale of it. And i think the cast came from a cardboard box from her mother's house and I can't even really begin to explain why that did mean something to me, perhaps coincidentally, but having just cleared twenty seven years worth of mine and my mum's life out of one house, it did evoke some emotion. And even if you didn't have an emotional reaction from that, the sheer size of things in the Turbine Hall always makes me react in some way.
