{     Banksy VS. Bristol Museum     }    

BanksyVSBristol.jpg

Beg, borrow or steal whichever ticket you need to get to Bristol. For the museum itself you will not need a ticket at all. However, the entrance is not free: it comes at the expensive price of about 4 hours of queuing, like it happened to me last Tuesday. The wait was insane, but well worth.

You are authorized to think whatever you want about Banksy: that he is a sell-out, a British copy of his mentor Blek Le Rat, that he has made millions on the hype... but until you have seen this exhibition, hold on on commenting on the art itself (or perhaps you are really jealous??). Forget technique for a moment (isn't actual skill gone out of fashion with Warhol anyway? And here there is a lot of arguing to do about that as well). If art is meant to speak to the public, Bansky's work is the most readable and punchier in the realm of social commentary. His ironic, scornful attitude to prejudice, taboos, welfare and everything that we consider proper, acceptable, normal, standard, is unmatchable and these are the reasons behind his success.

{     Giro Flak cycling helmet and cousins     }

You wonder if they exist. And they do. Differently from the Minotaur, Avalon and Hell, for what we know, there is such a thing as a magnificently glorious cycling helmet. I am not sure your hood has been swept by the bike crazy, but in mine you can even book bike classes for free in order to get as many commuters on bikes as possible. Hard to believe, but London is being turned into China! Plus helmets.

{     Chester 5000 XYV by Jess Fink     }

I'm at a loss for words. Not that words matter. Or are even necessary...

I really wish I could put into words what exactly Chester 5000 XYV by Jess Fink exactly is about and why you should care, but I can't. It's just that good.

Okay. I'll try...
