The BBC paid £60,000 for the sculpture

They used my hard earned licence money to pay for that bag of shite Not HP

I teach in a lab with no computers and no internet connection, so interactive WB and crap facilities. We don't even have an OHP in each lab, we have to share, and kids have to share books in almost all lessons, except theones where we have No books at all. That cash could have given us an interactive WB in each lab, and significanly imporved the education for every child in the school for many years to come (only used that because there isn't a f*ing furious emoticon)

oh FFS

Twiglett: message for you at bottom.

Hey, maybe the pole and bird is an early April Fool's ?

That's a bit crap, IMHO.

Though must say her 'everyone I've ever slept with' tent installation was quite good.

Twiglett, little birdy (dw) tells me we have a common friend: Down your neck of the woods, Volvo driver, mumma to two boys...

Am I right or am I totally mistaking you for someone else ? (sorry in advance if so)

Twiglett Thu 24-Feb-05 20:08:51

that's me .. you're not supposed to know who I am (at least mutual friend isn't) PMSL .. I believe HUGE CONGRATULATIONS are in order

I just lurved your DW btw .. she was fab ... so pleased for her

Twiglett Thu 24-Feb-05 20:09:33

oh bugger .. that's meant to say

so pleased for YOU and her

hub2dee Thu 24-Feb-05 21:43:45

Hey, Twiggy, DW says she thought you were rather fab too, so air kisses all round and she says thanks too for the info on getting pg.

Anyway, isn't MN great. It's like crack only worse.

See ya around !

WideWebWitch Thu 24-Feb-05 21:45:09

ha ha ha ha ha at 'like crack only worse' thanks for that

snafu Thu 24-Feb-05 21:48:51

Hellfire, Tracey. Are you takin' the piss, girl?

I usually really hate conversations about modern art that boil down to 'what a waste of taxpayer's money' but...what a waste of taxpayer's money.

hub2dee Thu 24-Feb-05 21:58:26

Someone's gonna get a ladda, nick the sparra and purit on ebay.

Come on, Scousers, warra you waitin for ?

Gobbledigook Thu 24-Feb-05 21:59:47

What a pile of steaming poo.

donnie Fri 25-Feb-05 14:53:31

well, a at least it's not quite as ridiculous as ' unmade bed'.....or maybe it is!

noddyholder Fri 25-Feb-05 14:55:28

nice work if you can get it but as ds would say ridikaliss

expatinscotland Fri 25-Feb-05 14:57:05

You should have seen her bags. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Longchamps totes and have been using them since I was a teen, but how in the hell did she score a gig designing bags for them?? And they were £165+, which in itself is okay, but they were UGLY! Rather like the rest of the stuff she does.

suzywong Fri 25-Feb-05 14:57:05

I think that is disgraceful
hope she will be giving that 60k to the bbc's comic relief appeal as her contribution as she certainly is having a laugh

Whizzz Fri 25-Feb-05 14:57:21

Did think that it looks very small & flimsy to be stood by itself in Liverpool! I'll give it a week before it disappears ! Although it is more 'arty' than some piles of old tat they call art ! (sorry, I'm not a fan of 'modern installations')

katierocket Fri 25-Feb-05 15:10:03

I quite like it
<runs for cover>

DillyDally Fri 25-Feb-05 15:20:08

I think it is a rip off of my Art homework from 1986 entitled pigeon on a string.
Where is my lawyer?

thedogmother Fri 25-Feb-05 15:23:07

furfuxache, what a waste of money.

Not that I totaly dislike it, just that surely it can't have cost more than a tenner for the material?

DillyDally Fri 25-Feb-05 15:24:26

Or perhaps my follow up work entitled Rat up a drainpipe...I am not sure

Marina Fri 25-Feb-05 15:24:53

I do too Katierocket
I think Tracey Emin is a real original and it's an interesting idea.
I know I could think of "worthier" things to spend £60,000 on, but I do honestly think not nearly enough public art is commissioned in the UK as it is.

It's a bird on a stick.

I'd have done it for half the price if they'd asked me.
