I got a bunch of good stuff for my birthday last month — books, CDs, a groovy t-shirt, some terrific framed old photos. One particularly good book was a book about street-artist Banksy. I hate stupid meaningless graffiti (and have been regularly contacting Connex about Glenhuntly Station… they’re not quite meeting their own “clean within 24 hours of report” policy, but are close). But Banksy’s stuff is really interesting, thought-provoking and amusing, and I think blurs the line between art and vandalism.
I realised that apart from things I was given, I seem to have gone on a spending spree last month.
Evidently it was a month of acquisitions, in one way or another.
