feel like getting myself a t-shirt made up that reads:

“i’ve survived the making of 3 Andy Stewart short films ……….. barely!”

RE: Glasgow School of Art

Dear Mr Matheson,

I hate to ask but have you or anyone in your office seen the outside of the new Glasgow School of Art?.

I appreciate in these times of austerity costs must be kept to a minimum but I think for a major place of worldwide interest we could have done better than getting the guy who designed the original portakabin to knock something up.

At best the building now looks like a bunch of rusting copper shipping containers left to decay in a once beautiful area. In no way does this structure complement the buildings it’s next to, let alone the one it seems to be trying to devour at it’s corner.

I also find myself completely perplexed by the enormous, albeit colourfully friendly, sign upon the edge of the building, forgetting the fact this looks like a crass advertisement that there’s a play area inside for the youngsters, I cannot understand it’s meaning, “now sing” it reads. This would make perfect sense for the school from 80’s hit ‘Fame’ but these are a different type of artist, with less signing and more drawing I imagine.

Maybe it would be better to destroy this as part of the commonwealth opening instead as I’m sure the people of Glasgow would find it both aesthetically pleasing and culturally helpful in cleaning up the city of eyesores.

Yours sincerely,

Alan McLean

so very true!

thanks to everyone who came to the CCA tonight.

the reaction to my short film has been quite unexpected and very nice. i’m really happy people seem to enjoy it and that the film works in all the ways i’d hoped in regards to repeat viewings.

was also great to see Andy Stewart’s film projected, fantastic work all round by everyone.

REST is now back online for everyone to watch as many times as they like, thanks to everyone who appears in the credits and everyone who’s not.

honestly sad to learn of the death of Steve Moore, a great comic book writer who originally devised ‘future shocks’ for 2000ad.

just back from watching ‘under the skin’ and i loved it, very reminiscent of a 60’s acid fueled indy film with a little bit of Giallo thrown in for good measure. i found it quite like Ben Wheatley’s ‘a field in england’ in that it was very referential towards the history of cinema, like something i’d seen before but experiencing for the first time. big thanks to Adriana Polito for taking this poor boy to the cinema, muchly appreciated.

got a new floor bag, moving all my stuff into it remembering the days i used to carry nothing but a sharpie and some string.

here’s Andy Stewart’s stomach churning debut short film DYSMORPHIA.

if you like what you see and want to see more, go donate for his next short INK here http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ink

part of the funding will go towards feeding me for a couple of days, so dig deep because i want bacon and cakes
