I've never met a whale in person but being an Aquarian and a passionate bathtub diver, I've always had a deep fascination and admiration for creatures living in the oceans. As a matter of fact, I think I'd feel much better about most things in life if I lived in a little floating WiFi enabled! oxygen bubble at the bottom of the sea where time is only a faint memory, the sun doesn't shine, putrid smells of decadence and slow painful death couldn't reach me and sounds are miraculously subdued.

... and where bugging TV license people wouldn't knock on my door and demand £140 for my non-usage of a medium that fills me with much disgust and hatred every single day. Gah!

Ermm.. anyway, my point is that whales are the greatest fucking mammals on this weird planet and that you can now support the efforts to protect those that are left of them by going to Strychnin Gallery Berlin and spend all your non-existing money on whale-related art. Weeeeeeeeee!

    I tell them the truth - that I use a television only as a screen for my games consoles and as such it is not used for displaying terrestrial (or other) broadcasts.

    I invited them to inspect my home at their lesiure, which they never did. Mind you, I sent them a rather annoyed letter in response to their scaremongering tactics.
