The Numskulls

Painted the cross members of the overhead lighting gantry  - and the supporting rosettes.

Originally in white.
Chose a murky, dark, rusty coloured mixture of acrylic paints. And from all angles it looks a total mess!!!

Will tidy things up tomorrow.

Currently listening to:

Downloaded 2 old Eels albums from iTunes:

From 2003

From 2001

Both are excellent.

Eels are appearing in Glasgow on Tuesday night as part of the "No Mean City" festival which celebrates Glasgow's connection with American culture or as the blurb puts it, with "Americana".

Some Glaswegians are very proud of Glasgow's reputation as a tough city; I'm not so keen.

Last night's dinner:

Forgot to take photograph of the spaghetti bolognaise but it was greatly enriched by using dried mushrooms. I'll use these on a more frequent basis - vastly superior to fresh supermarket mushrooms.

Currently reading:


I think that when Gilbert Ryle refers (with abuse, I might add) to The Ghost in the Machine, he has in mind what used to be the concept behind the Numskulls, a regular feature in the Beano comic.
