City Of Culture

I know sometimes I might rag on a bit about Bruxelles being shit but it has it's plus points. Granted, the shit bits are major. European Capital my arse - just because we have the European Commission here means fuck all - except that we get inundated with moronic Euro politicians who spend most of their time debating bugger all whilst living on expenses.

The public transport sucks a lot of the time, although it still makes the travel system in the UK seem like something from The Simpsons.

It's quite a nice place to live if you don't want to speak any language other than your own as there is such a mix of languages here, so if you're feeling like being a linguistic lazy bastard - it's the place for you.

On the plus side though - there is culture here. No I'm not talking about the recent exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci - boring. It only became a popular topic because of that silly little book, The Da Vinci Code (which was a conglomeration of stolen ideas anyway).

No, I'm talking about a 'proper' exhibition. It just started here this weekend having toured some small provincial villages in Europe like London, Paris and Lisbon. Am I going to see it - abso-fucking-lutely. The opportunity to see a major exhibition of something so big it's, well, out of this world.

What am I talking about? Well, DUH!

The Star Wars Exhibition - hee hee, you get to meet Yoda and ask him what the fuck he's talking about - how cool is that?!

Don't get me wrong - I'm not one of those sad twats that will get dressed up as a character to visit it but, it is a chance to revert to my childhood just for a few hours.

Granted, there is one other exhibition that I want to see, infinitely more Gothic, but that's in Paris (more about that one soon).

In the meantime - May The Force Be With You

Hmmm... I sense a disturbance in the force. It's because it has just left.
