mechanical animals brings back such memories of 1998/1999 and listening to the track coma white over and over again!) and well, i haven't seen many of david lynch's films but i loved mulholland drive (even if i still don't really have a clue what it was about!). so i was really interested to go along and take a look at manson's paintings. i haven't listened to his music for a long time and my brother assures me that the more recent albums just got worse and worse (and i trust my brothers judgement so i didn't bother to listen!). however, it appears unbeknown to me he has been concentrating on his art work... and i have to say, i like it. the watercolours are really emotional and it comes as no surprise that the themes are pain, despair etc and focus on the human body. the sound from lynch's films being played (quite harrowing) seemed to provide the perfect background.
anyway... i enjoyed it! and i even got to eat a nice lunch out as i accidentally arrived at the exhibition before it opened (doesn't open until 1pm) so i stopped at the kunsthallencafe. felt a bit weird being on my own (especially as the patio/terrace was full of groups of people all drinking/eating together and enjoying the sunshine) but i had my trusty book to read in my bag so i was okay.
i've just realised that i'm missing the netherlands v brazil match. damn it. i'm off!
