Best telly at the moment is Simon Schama's Power of Art. Last episode was fabulosity ... handsome sculptor Bernini chases his brother (who is nailing Bernini's adulterous lover) through the streets of Rome, bashes him, and sends his servant to slash his cheating girlfriend's face. And later he resurrects his career with statue of nun in coital style ecstasy. Take that Ultimate Force.

You picked some of the best bars, I am a habitue of Twisted Hop's Sunday avo pub quiz especially ...
Plus I live round the corner from the cheesemonger (and Vic's Cafe that does the best cheesy red onion bagels and a good salty rosemary foccacia to have with your cheese)
I am glad Dramfest did well and got lots of coverage.
Hopefully somewhere will do a PortFest too mmm tawny port
"I can feel the puff in my belly, it will lift me into the sky like a hot air balloon. But I can't leave without Mavis ...God I want to escape"
"Oh I can see an island, Jumping Jehosophat. Ah Mavis, let's swim out there, it's not far, and we can make a life of idyllic companiability and rustic bliss instead of this bloody tourist shite. Look, I have tucked my shorts into my gruts in preparation."
"Now swim, swim!!! The tide is with us, the elements are for us, let's do it Mamacita!"
"Okay, let's get back to our beachspot. There is a strange disembodied head in the water. It is a sign"
"Here darling, have this dried up piece of a slice of cheese while I recline like a odalisque in swim trunks"
