So Macho

Sir Nicholas of Millbank was one of a number of ‘cultural leaders’ who met with the Chancellor and Jeremy the Hunt on Monday to hear all about the 40% Government cuts to the arts.
Anyhow, CoS has heard that Sir Nick took a friend along who sorted some things out for us all. Thanks Pablo. Announcement due tomorrow…

DIY PABD OH!

Posted by cathedralofshit on September 28, 2009

Sad people with no lives went to the book-fairs yesterday. Publish and Be Damned, the self-publishing fair (ie for those raised upon Blue Peter and Steeleye Span) forgot to book Rochelle School in time and were forced to move to a youth club called Oxford House. Oxford House, clearly concerned by the elitism inherent in any reference to the other, irrelevent, city on the Thames, have hilariously attempted a rebrand by calling themselves ‘Oh!’).
Kit Hammonds’, ‘the organiser’, charged everyone to take part this year and put all his favourite publications on the ground floor and let the others fight it out upstairs. There was a piece on the Today programme on Radio 4 this morning. You could ‘Listen Again’ here to an account of the ‘dizzying array of these rather unusual publications’ (Hammonds predictably endorses Stephen Willats’ ‘Control’, that celebrated cure for insomniacs, and Pablo Leon de la Barra talks about being ‘Macho, not rough’ and reading pornography at his hairdresser in Mexico City).
