Random quote: "Merrr," it went, as if a herd of unhappy cows had been led into the stands. You kept expecting a second syllable, presuming this must be a precursor to the full-on Millwall cry of "Merrr-warr". But it never arrived, no matter how long the noise went on. And it went on for ages. Manchester United even scored their third goal in the middle of it and were not able to disturb its monosyllabic momentum. This was the football chant reduced to its most basic, a primal scream of loyalty, a growl of determination that no matter what happened, nothing would stop the underdog having its day out. It was the most defiant noise that can ever have been heard at a Cup final. Just a shame the players in blue couldn't live up to it.

Yeah, load of bullocks.
Had reason to go to Herne Hill earlier this week and had a few hours to kill so me and the missus thought we'd drive in to DulwichVillage.
Thought it would be nice to have a look around the picture gallery and get a cuppa in the cafe there.Soon changed our minds, nearly £15 to go in,a pound cheaper for us seniors.
Should be Art for the more well off people.
14 quid to look at a few pictures?? worlds gone mad.

Paul, of course I didn't. Although I'm not poor I just refuse to pay inflated prices for anything.We also skipped the tea and coffee, again ridiculous money for what costs pennies to make.

Cheaper to see Picasso's works in Barcelona and very worth it too. If you're already there...

I still don't understand why Banksy is called an artist, is it short for piss artist?

Everyone's a critic.

The Turner Gallery is like Steptoe's yard but less interesting, anyone visiting Margate should visit the local Whelk stall instead.
I cannot believe so many wealthy patrons have seen fit to donate, the most interesting thing I see on the wall was a light switch.

I'm a big fan of Bansky.

He takes the normal, everyday and turns it into thought-provoking artworks.

He is NOT a graffiti artist. The stencils he uses take hours to design and assemble.

Graffiti is the miles of 'Name Tags' you see on buildings on the approach to Waterloo and Blackfriars Stations - that IS vanderlism.

Tate Modern is free - where else in the world can you see Kandinsky's, Bacon's, Hockney's, Picasso's, Lichtenstein's and Klee's for free?

Do you remember the Sunrise in the Turbine Hall - Ólafur Elíasson's The Weather Project? Absolutely fantastic; the space, the light and the humidity creating a tropical dawn.

But, then again, opinions are like arseholes - everybody has one!

28 quid for a meal for two - where are you - 1975?

We paid 10 Euros each for a Croque-monsieur in Ménilmontant, last year.

Okay, Paris is unbelievable nowadays, Paul - but is there really that much difference?

Art the most subjective subject there is apart from music.

Banksy was never the same after his eye injury, as for graffiti was he the limbo dancer with one leg.

:strokechin:



You can get a 3 course meal at Leon de Bruxelles in Angouleme at lunch time for 11.99 Euros
Also at the Chinese buffet, King Long next door, I think it is 12 euros for all you can eat, at lunch time.

Obviously drinks add to the cost, but a pichet of wine is only about 5 euros.

The lunch time meal at Leon includes a super starter too. You can pile the plate up high with all sorts of stuff.

I think the short answer is "yes" there really is a massive difference between Paris and the countryside. There are many other restos sur Angouleme that do a formule a midi for around the same price.
Our local resto in the village does the same too.
So, it really is the norm, not the exception. We are spoilt for choice...and that is EUROS, not quids!!

That's pretty good value, Paul.

I'm envious!

I like a certain original oil painting, it's £1100 so out of my reach at the moment. The thing I don't get is the big con with giclee prints. You pay a tenth of the price of the original for a limited edition COPY that may last 50 to 100 years. I'm amazed people buy poster prints and pay so much for them. OK, you can't call picasso up and get him to paint something but pay more than a fiver for a reprint? Get something original.

Another thing not to understand. Obviously a restaurant invests tens of thousands in bottles of wine and has to make a profit, but I have a bottle of Sirena Dinarii that is £25. Walk down the road to the restaurant on the park and the same dessert wine is £65. And they still want a fucking tip!

It is really nice to be able to have a nice meal out and not feel ripped off.
Evenings are more expensive. Prices are deliberately kept low at lunchtime to attract the people working in town.
The other night we went to a place that cooks over a wood fire. My magret de canard was huge and delicious, and Mrs BP had a huge salad.
With drinks dessert and coffee I think it was 44 euros.

One of the delights of living here. Of course, there are the poncy places where you can pay much more, but why would you when the quality is so good?

I f'ing hater poncy eateries, make a pattern on your plate and charge a fortune.
Don't want a waiter bothering me with 'hows your meal sir?' or 'can I get you anything else sir.'
No You f'ing can't, just leave me to enjoy my meal.
