  1. Has the world been waiting for a sharpened stake to be shoved up its arse too?

  2. Makes me think of Barbara Campbell's 1001 nights cast project & also the Serpentine's Long Relay

    But I'd rather have written Stephen's comment.

  3. As part of my Spread the Hangover program, I hereby invite all and especially sundry to my flat in Buenos Aires for a 24 hour wine-making challenge. I have 10 bunches of malbec grapes, five tubes of hygenic gel in alcohol, some oak bark and a radiator. The reasoning being that whilst I am an avid wine drinker, the length of time it took to make a really good vintage has always somehow interfered with my enjoyment.
