From Aardman to Armistice
If there are any Aardman fans here, feel free to flick through my Flickr account, where you will find ample photographic evidence of my trip to Cribbs Causeway (Bristol's very own out-of-town shopping centre) last week, in part to visit the Gromit Unleashed exhibition, in which all of the Wallace, Gromit and Feathers McGraw statues previously scattered throughout Bristol for the summer are reunited in one place. I'll start you off with a couple of faves, concentrating on allusions:

DSC02086
Star Trek

DSC02064
Where's Wally?

DSC02110
Monsters Inc.

DSC02097
Alice in Wonderland

But there are plenty of other themes, too. What will next year bring?

Or, if your bent runs more to haltingly delivered lectures on children's fantasy literature and the end of the Great War, with particular emphasis on memory and repression, you may like to hear the podcast of the lecture I gave last week at Exeter University as part of The Empathy Effect, a project I'm involved with. (The link's at the bottom.)

I went to the podcast and to my surprise I am on minute 26 already (I have no attention span and can only focus on things that are brightly coloured and are moving fast, like trader terminals). Your podcast became the prequel for the presser where two scariest men on the planet will be telling each other how they will break and turn each other into a bloody mess in the octagon in two weeks, it will start just after your podcast ends.

I can't hope to compete with that, though the Great War probably can.

I'm glad the lecture has some interest for you!
