A couple of pretty great things for tonight I wanted to share with you, guys..
.......First of all let's see if you enjoy this multicoloured blurrrinesss:
Ai Weiwei, who was detained by Chinese authorities this year and spent several months under arrest for political reasons.

And this floating gauzy red staircase by the Korean artist Do Ho Suh.

Actually, another interesting work by Ai Weiwei is the one below. The caption to this self-portrait of him, called 草泥马挡中央 or "grass mud horse covering the middle" sounds almost the same in Chinese as 肏你妈党中央, "Fuck you, the Communist party central committee". Grass mud horse or 'Cao Ní Ma' is a Chinese Internet meme widely used as a form of symbolic defiance of the widespread Internet censorship in China. The 'horse' is actually what he is holding in his hand.

Do also check out this Atlantida-esque underwater exhibition by Jason deCaires Taylor, it is very impressive - especially with all the algae on top of the sculptures, which created some sort of art of their own.

Lastly, I'm dying to go to this musical here in London based on the movie also called Backbeat, which was my favourite movie when I was a kid.
Let me know what you are up to these days and if you know about any other interesting things going on close to you around the world :)... G'night..
