Looking down a speciality.
Teazleicious Diva-cat photos for the lazy at heart.
Now with added kitten.
will lookgood though!
thats gonna look cool! does it have lights in the end? or is that just me! thats what they look like!
They are lights, yes. Can't quite picture what they're going to look like though.
maybe each end will light up and it couild be like an up lighter along the spine? looking forward to seeing what i will look like now!
Yeah me too. The time it has taken to redevelop this major throughfare and the mess pedestrians have had to pick through has coloured my appreciation of it. But it should be quite impressive.
be good to see it when completed.
how was your performance on Saturday night, btw OJ?
Mmmm, performance on Saturday was mixed Nige.
Absolutely brilliantly talented physical performers from Slovakia, but the piece itself was difficult to follow because it was structured around (subverted??) Slovak folk songs which are a bit inaccessible to English speakers. So it came over as a bunch of very brilliantly done tableaus rather than a coherent narrative about an emigrant worker, which was how it was tantalisingly billed.
It was called Sclavi btw.
Great accordian playing stompalong Slavic singing in the bar at Riverside studios afterwards tho...
that's a shame. RS looks a great space, mind; i can't say that i've been there before.
Don't get me wrong. It was still very, very well done. Eastern Europe does physical performance in a way very few UK companies can match (if at all). Just didn't quite live up to the utter brilliance of some of the other stuff I've seen...and arguably this review:
hehe. i read that review after your last comment. i put a great deal of credence in their reviewers. interesting what they had to say.
Def wanna see this when it's all lit up.
Wonder how much social housing the budget for that thing could have provided...
Am sick to back teeth of vacuous municipal conversation pieces & branding exercises.
I'll support art in public places so long as it's actually good.
No philistine myself, but think priorities in Sheff have been way off for a long time. Roughly since Blunkett was in charge & lumbered the city with that huge bill for the Student Games, straight after the local economy had lost both coal & steel industries...
