banksy is a scamp

I was thinking about Banksy just this morning -- about how his art is like love-letters between the environment and our thoughts. Must have been something in the air, as he's been a busy boy again: bring us back a nice story from Palestine, Banksy.

Incidentally, Alan Cumming is also a scamp. Not really suitable for work unless your work is full of mischeivous types with a thing for handsome young men and a relaxed attitude to nudity and innuendo.

re: AC
And they have The High Life out on DVD too these days.

I prefer him when
he's playing villains.

I wish people would stop forcing me to watch that, it makes me feel all peculiar.

now now
no-one's forcing you. Although I must confess that I nearly fell off my chair.

Arf, I always liked Banksy. He used to do stencils in the alley accross from the stage door. I never actually saw HIM...Or Mr Cumming's moviette, for that matter. He refused to perform for me. He always reminds me of Pee Wee Herman, anyway. Why is he so heavily lusted after by so many?

shame you didn't see the ad
as removing almost all his clothes gave me a good hint as to why.

Re: shame you didn't see the ad
And there was me thinking it was the dimples ;)

dimples = bah!
Nice eyelashes, though.

Eeeek! That film made me feel all funny!
6th Aug, 2005 18:47 (UTC)
well, I certainly laughed a lot ...

Wow. Just...wow. I'm glad I didn't watch that while I was websurfing at the gym, but I'm glad I watched it later. Ahh, Alan. It's the eyes, I think...the intensity, the mischief, the crinkles at the corners. I could care less about the butt.

ah, but
the arse isn't bad, either }:D

Bah! No sound card on my home computer, but heck, he does have pretty eyes. :-)

I'm suffering from brushpen envy, I don't suppose you could tell me the make and model of the brushpen I saw you using in the pub? Cos... cos... now I want one too!
Oh, and do you have the website address for that publish to order place? I might look into it, even if only to get a single copy of my own comic or summat.

my one was grey
... the stranger colours often go on sale. Want me to see if Brush and Compass still has 'em? The product: http://www.pentel.co.uk/gfl_infopage.asp

That'll be Lulu, I think: http://www.lulu.com/about/whatislulu.php Have fun!

Re: my one was grey
I was very taken with the grey, (I already have a black, but black alone is very intimidating for sketching.)
I've rung all the art shops in Liverpool but no joy, though one shop says they could probably order them if I don't mind waiting 3 weeks or so.
I'd be most chuffed if you did find any in Brush and Compass, and I could arrange to send monies and postage for it and stuff.

too late for lunch-hour today
But I'll check it out tomorrow

eeeeeeviiiiiiil temptresss
well, well well. I picked you up a grey. They also have -- dark blue, light blue, green (olive-ish), brown (sepia), orange, yellow, pink (lurid), leaf green and navy. Purple and red appear to have sold out, I'm afraid. Want any more, or shall I just send it on as is? Your unit price is (choke!) £4.99

Re: eeeeeeviiiiiiil temptresss
The grey will do me, (alas, no purple!) I'll post you a fiver and some stamps/envelope gubbins tomorrow.
Cheers for grabbing it for me, I am most chuffed.
I am going to make an effort on this sketching thing! Dammit, the 16 year old work experience girl sketches better than me, I'm utterly mortified!

all a matter of perspective, I suspect ....
