Well, it was something that occurred to me as I walked round the exhibition and I went back to look more closely and then consulted an artist friend who agreed with my conclusion.
The ground floor restaurant isn't bad either.

ObAUE: Wasn't the sunlight thing an intervention rather than an installation? Or is that no longer current jargon? In the ... whatever was an important part of the experience (I think) whereas installations were more or less self-contained whatevers (I think).

I associate interventions with surgery rather than art.

It's very boring and trite to attack contemporary art but it *is* largely paid for with public money and ... yawn. One must be careful not to express outrage, though. The daring little Establishmentistas thrive on outrage.

Spit on ***, young sir! Spit on ***, I say!

Ah, yes. Dear old Eric & Ernie. Where would we be without them? (Don't answer that.)
But perhaps all is not lost. Great consternation has been caused yet again by the shortlist for the Turner Prize. This time out, one of the artists who doesn't even have a proper English artist's name like Sven Wu or Siobhan Singh has had the temerity to do detailed representational paintings (yes, in oil, with brushes, on canvas the whole bloody kaboodle) of wait for this vases of flowers! ***.

Don't worry too much: I'm sure it's post-apres-nach-ironic.

I do hope so. Perhaps the frames are made from the same wood used for seal-cullers' clubs or something. Or maybe the flowers are ones she nicked from the gates of Kensington Palace while the vases commemorative Diana urns made in China.
There must be more to it. There must be.

I haven't been to the Tate Modern recently. I went ... little office rooms. Are they using the space better now?

Didn't you think that the three towers by Louise Bourgeois were a stunning use of the space? I did, although ... and miss since but I was very sorry to miss the sunlight installation. Laura (emulate St. George for email)

Sorry, couldn't help myself: "hit and miss"?

We had that experience too. Was it Marlborough?

I don't remember where it was. It was a good coach ride from Guildford, where I was then at school, and Marlborough would fit. There were a lot of trees around.

(Wakes up) Bradfield. (ZZ)

Wasn't it Radley? I'm sure we met them for rowing, and al fresco Greek plays in their very own amphitheatre.

(Slightly less confident now - can there really be so many Greek theatres in English public schools?) Bradfield.
What's amphi- about an amphitheatre, anyway? It seems more of a hemitheatre to me. A homage to one of Aristophanes' lighter works? I know it *** down with rain when I saw MacScottish Play at Bradfield, which washed out the interval picnic with Pavlova, but I still didn't feel a proper tadpole.

I think you may be indanger of getting caught intheweb there. Try to relax, breathe gently, and it should just goaway. Think about what the COLONEL would say: his honest homespun counsel is all ways a great comfort to me in adVERSUty.

Oddly, "hit and miss" is an alternative to "hit or miss", and means the same.
