Mr Mappelthorpe

So a few weeks ago, the Mappelthorpe exhibition opened at the Alison Jacques Gallery on Berners St in London. PATTI FUCKING SMITH PLAYED.

The lovely Miss Lennard called me to tell me, I was working, I jumped in a cab. To cut a long story short, I missed it by about 30 seconds.

Anyway, the point being I went back on saturday (also my birthday incidentally, I'm old...)

Its well worth a visit, very beautiful. The exhibition also has a room dedicated entirely to his collage and paintings.

Before visiting the gallery I also went to Bob Bob Ricard for lunch, I HIGHLY reccomend it! Wonderfully camp and kitsch, the waiters all wear pink velvet double breasted tuxedos, and theres a button in each and every booth "press for champagne" also in the very same shade of flamingo! Brilliant!

Jalou J'adore!

Phones, whatever.
Great ad though...

Sort Of Coal

Aren't the Japanese clever? Who else would think to purify nasty London air, water and indeed your fridge with COAL! Coal I tell you! Apparently its white coal, but it looks pretty black to me...

Anyway, some people thought it would be a good idea to sell it in raw form (looks awesome) for ridiculous sums of money. You can even buy coal jewellery (looks like hippy shit), to purify your soul or something. Whatever.

I kinda want this: (I'm a sucker)

Though I am a little sceptical I must admit, this being the nearest to a scientific explaination that they seem to be offering up:

The purifying ability of White Charcoal is a natural phenomenon known and used in Japan for several centuries.The concept of White Charcoal products is both holistic and scientific. Sort of Coal is proud to introduce White Charcoal designed for purifying water, air and the body
- enriching the daily life.

Whatevs. Looks pretty.

If you're retarded like me and actually wanna buy this crap, you can do that here.
