Tired all the time

This was one of the many very irritating slogans of last year's Kulturfest. You may have read or seen of further recent instalments of fun from this town regarding "gifts" from an itinerant self-promoting defacer of buildings. There's been a wonderful farce as folk twist their moral selves into defending criminal damage of  a protected building as art, the outrage as criminal daubing was itself daubed with a nice coat of paint and so on and so on. The whole thing brought to mind a medieval saintly apparition and how the church could profit from such nonsense ... But I'm too tired to go see the now perspex covered scribbling; you'll have to wait to see if I can be bothered.

The theme for the City Daily Photo is "Tired" so if you'll excuse me I'll go catch up on my sleep.


  1. Someday Banksy is going to be exposed as an accountant named Eddie Knickerbocker.

  2. Hi William, sorry I haven't been around much. I'm still enjoying your pictures relatively often.
    I suppose my views on graffiti are unpopular, but I think it's vandalism. Maybe it depends on where it happens. I've seen murals under bridges that benefitted from a bit of color. But a protected building is already art, and any such "enhancement" is, as you say, criminal damage.
