I really would not like to meet this guy. They should put him on television dance programmes. Here's a link to the real one.

What a great costume that would be for Halloween...

And here's harp guitar...

High as a Kite

The head Mafioso builder of the town is constructing three houses close to the back of my modest abode. I wasn't too worried because silly me actually believed him when he said they would not be overlooking anybody's property. One of my foibles being that I always believe people are nice when in fact they are pathological imbeciles.

Between yesterday and today they have built two soaring towers so my garden is no longer a secret garden but a private theatre for the French people that are going to live there. I won't even be able to sit inside the miniature willow tree anymore...or maybe I just will. I mean fer Gud's sake it's the biggest building in town. People are staring at it and going "coño..." (no translation needed).

Erik, the German, my neighbour has four windows looking into his temple. He is selling up. He hopes a builder will tear his place down and build fifty apartments.

If anyone has the right qualifications out there please come and rescue me.

Meanwhile, here's Frederic Mesnier making it all sound so easy.

And here is a spectacular piece of fire and water made by a friend over at Renderosity. I bet he did the music too.

Wild Restaurant

You know these makeover shows on the telly where they do up houses and everybody is smiling and going "Oooh" and "Wow" and "I didn't think it was possible?"

Well, it's not. It is ghastly. You eat off plastic plates. There are only sandwiches. I have lost absolutely everything...including a small box of pen nibs from the antique market. I have broken three carefully honed fingernails but....

There is a new fridge in the empty kitchen. I have never owned a NEW fridge. It is amazing. I think I'll move in...
