Shary Boyle talking at the Canadian Art Foundation International Lecture Series in 2008.
04:10 is sheer beauty.
I’m afraid I absolutely cannot remember who on FB I stole this from. (._.)

I'm pretty bummed right now that I didn't plan my bi-annual trip back to Helvetia a little earlier in time for Fumetto Comics Festival in Lucerne.
How could my favourite comics festival on earth possibly have slipped my mind?! I used to attend every single year... heck.. I was even the official FumettoBlogger® back in 07. o_O
Oh, well, let this be a reminder to you Helvetian folks that you'd better go and have a look at all Fumetto 09 has to offer in my stead.
The festival opens this Saturday, March 28 and runs until April 5. Details below.

Ooooh! It's gonna be a terribly enchanting weekend for you, dear citizens of Waterloo, Canada:
Wurzeltod®'s favourite porcelain doll artist Shary Boyle (previously featured here) will have a solo exhibit entitled Aspects & Excess featuring a selection from seven years of miniature sculpture at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery. Yay!
The exhibition opens Sunday, January 14th, from 2 - 5 PM and runs until April 1st, 2007.
Shary Boyle will give an artist's talk from 1 - 2 PM which I wouldn't miss under any circumstances if I were you (weddings, childbirths, diarrhoea, earthquakes, plagues of locusts and the Apocalypse per se included).
Oh, and please don't smash any of her delicate pieces. You're not in Cambridge.
In other news, I'm deeply saddened to hear that Robert Anton Wilson died this morning. May you forever rest in peace.
And on a happier note, I'd like to wish you all the best for your next 101 years on this planet, Dr. Albert Hofmann. Happy 101st birthday to you! I haven't seen you cycling around Basel lately, but I'm somewhat sure you're having a ball right now...

You might have already noticed that I'm back from my voyage to Cambridge and London.
During my time in England, I
i) got invited to chase the ghost of the most haunted house in London (50 Berkeley Square - pictures will follow),
ii) got locked up in Kensal Green Cemetery for 20 minutes,
iii) made it into Ronnie Scott's,
iv) spotted a punk hamster in Camden Town, and...
v) walked into Sotheby's at New Bond Street with muddy Doc Martens, a bleeding knee and a torn "L'art est inutile" shirt.
After long introspection, I came to the conclusion that England is as mental as ever.
So yes, I suppose I had a great time - even though my embalmed armadillo had to stay at home due to the strict British quarantine rules for zombie pets. *sobs*
But for now, dear reader, please steal your little sister's doll's house, turn all the lights off, lean back and enjoy Issue 4 of Notes From the Haunted Doll's House.
In other 46.19% irrelevant news, this
massive bird of prey darling little birdie landed on my balcony today and stared at me for half a minute. Cute! o_O
