Something made me want to witness the 2004 Tsunami again.

This video because of the visible height of the wave.

The Chernobyl disaster.

Vladimir Shevchenko arrived on the scene soon after the accident and took this film. He died soon after.

I've occasionally seen documentaries and dramatisations of what happened at Chernobyl. They were moving. That was video horrific, purely because it was so blandly normal. The ruin of the reactor aside - you wouldn't guess the people in that tape and behind the camera were already dead men walking.

smiley - yuk yeesh. - gives me the shivers.

Yes the Chernobyl film was very poignant and fascinating...

And now for something completely different. The incomparable genius weirdness of Ivor Cutler

Ivor Cutler: I never "got" him. And I always had a sneaking suspicion that nobody else did either. Sometimes you watch something and think, "well, that's not for me, but I can see why someone else might like it". Whereas in this case I just think, "you're taking the ****, aren't you?", and a sneaking admiration that a person can pull the wool so comprehensively over so many eyes that he's hailed as a genius.

I dislike him for the same reason I dislike John Cage or Gilbert and George. I cannot escape the feeling that their work, by its defiant meaninglessness, is attempting to ridicule me. If I say I appreciate it, the ridicule is that I am gullible. If I say I don't, the ridicule is that I am uncultured or in some other way unable to appreciate something I'm too obtuse to see.

Well screw that.
