Oh, I must share this before I forget. The Joys Of Teaching Dept.

One of my youngest students, a girl of 11, was talking to me about boring films today. I told her about Andy Warhol's "Sleep" and "Empire State". Her eyes widened. She's a bright kid. Immediately she suggested a new version of "Sleep" whereby the viewer films themselves watching the film on their smartphone for the full eight hours. They then upload this onto YouTube and monitor comments on it.

I can't help thinking that Andy Warhol would really have liked that.

Yes Adam, a bright kid! I suspect the certificate it would be given wouldn't be U, or PG, but ZZZ....
