I had conversations this week about Charles Rennie Macintosh. I have to confess that I am not a great fan of the design work and interiors that Macintosh produced, this could be in part to do with over commodification, I have a similar problem with Morris and in terms of the actual architecture I am more inclined to the work of Voysey. There is no doubt that Macintosh was a hugely talented and highly individual artist and his watercolours produced towards the end of his life stand testament to this fact, they are masterpieces, seek them out.
No excuses for this. I had been expecting to post a piece about John Hiatt, he has been a long standing inspiration. I was to see him in concert in Paris at the Alhambra, July 4th. A bug struck me down and I lost the concert, but I want Hiatt on my blog, so here he is.
AGED AND AWKWARD
