This video better finish rendering soon, I'm running out of cities. Don't use the warp stabiliser effect in PP folks, it takes forever.

Edinburgh, tourist ridden hell hole, the only thing that could draw me there (and have you been to the National Gallery? Fuck me it's bad, even worse than the National Gallery in London) is lunch with Mo or C. SNGOMA is pretty good mind, so good I'd go tomorrow. Fuck I'm an art tart.

To return to Glasgow (if only, S), Kelvingrove is a gothic horror, not quite as offensive as impressionism but an affront to one's eyes..........from the outside. The interior is breathtaking. That its art collection is terrible matters not a jot, breathe in the architectural marvellousness and thank whoever you wish, that you're in Glasgow.

GOMA does it for me too. Only upstairs though, the ground floor doesn't work.

I'd love to add Liverpool to the elite UK cities (London, Glasgow, Manchester and Brum) but even the wonderful Walker Art Gallery can't tip the balance.

I walked past Eric Cantona in St Pancras, that boy had a lucky escape as I could have asked him to record "futility has the better of me" for my video, but I'm too much of a snob to acknowledge celebrities.

London has a distinctly unfair advantage over the other places mentioned in that most of the population live there, most of the money for art and artist is there most of the artworld is situated there, as for Battersea powerstation, beautiful art deco building it may be, but i dont think it can hold a candle to the cranhill water towers, maybe thats just me because i used to see them every day when i lived there though, and art in general is a personal thing imo, the old addage about " i know nowt about art, but i know what i like", is so true.

Sev, thatís wonderful material. If you expanded on what the water tower means to you, illustrate it with stories, memories etc and then maybe bring it up to date again, Iíd love to put it on EC. These are just ideas, you can write about it any way you wish, just write about it, please.

I don't know sev, one can lead you to a pie but one can't force you to eat it. Such a shame.



James, have you not got a favourite tree you could write about, you arboreal, highland rogue?

I'm sorry dude, i dont know what you want me to say, i only compared the two structures and think that the watertower is right up there with the powerstation, though battersea has the advantage of being very famous due to it being in London and album covers etc, im sure the watertower with the same amount of expsure could become as famous and as loved.


P.s. What is EC?

Personal views as to why something seen every day while remaining unthought of to most, but have significance for the individual, are fascinating to me. That as a child the tower signalled you were nearly home and you desired to climb it add colour and personality to the tower. It allows the reader of your thoughts to see the tower through fresh eyes.

Your post indicated that with a bit of persuasion you might flesh out your thoughts. Set the scene with your age at the time, why it interested you, any stories surrounding it, how you now appraise it through adult eyes etc. Donít worry about it though, sev.

Iíve expanded on this idea of the personal take of often seen things and local stories with a few people and hope theyíre going to make some short videos.

EC is where I post my art gallery videos etc.

Liverpool, and all the others including SuperLeeds are fantastic cities. But as you mention the Walker in Liverpool:



The Witch of Larbert
Painting by John Millais
'The Martyr of the Solway'
1871
Oil on canvas
60.3 x 56.5 cm (27 3/4 x 22 1/4 in)
Walker Art Gallery, Merseyside
