On the way to the Edinburgh Modern Art Gallery today it occurred to me that I may have completely fucked up my life by coming to the UK. No job. No money. No nothing.
Angie and I argued. She went home in disgust at my negativity.
I trundled on towards the gallery with Jethro. I was filled with rage, but a determined sort of rage. A rage to take Jethro to the gallery, see the giant furniture, and have a nice time no-matter-what goddammit!
I rounded the corner and beheld the gallery façade…
The neon lights knocked me forcefully. I fell to a bench, and my anger flushed out of me. It wet my gloves as it fled through my hands to the floor. Then it was gone—my red eyes and damp gloves the only evidence of it having ever existed.
When I stopped crying we went inside. . The giant furniture was amusing. The tourists were life-like. Edvard Munch’s lithographs were chilling.
Jethro and I had a wonderful time. I think I believe Martin Creed.
A most curious family I met on my travels around Edinburgh. Falling all about most of the time, they managed to gather themselves up for a few photographs.
Quite a while ago I posted a story about a photoshoot I did for a friend’s fashion-school project. I mentioned that “Grant will be performing mysterious and arcane photoshop machinations to the photos.” It was not a lie.
I finally got hold of those bits that went into his fashion magazine, and have his permission to present them here.

If you want to use the stuff for something, let me know and I’ll ask him. We can probably make a plan.
I went for a walk and look what I found at the bus-stop.
In case you can’t read the text, in the picture, it is transcribed below. The question marks are for the text that I can’t make out, but I think you’ll get the idea:
Easter, brings, us, joy, &, happiness
All, people, love, Easter, because, they, enjoy, ???
So, many, children, love, the, Easter, bunny
Tell, the, people, to, cellebrate, this, Easter
Every, time, Easter, comes, everybody, ???
Rise, shine, it’s, EASTER!!!!
Ok. So I haven’t managed to get any work done today, and I’m making sure the new modem works.
I did get some tidying done! And in tidying I found more gems from my gold plant labouring days.
New pics up on DeviantArt.
Been there a while actually, but go look and make a comment (good or bad)
