No change today, ho hum, etc.
When I went to Tesco’s yesterday, I noticed that a major milestone had been reached in the car park demolition project, so I went back today to get some pictures. My knee moaned at me most of the way, but once I’d walked around a bit and got some nice shots, it decided it was going to be quiet for a while, so I walked on a bit.
I had a look at the Gateshead Visitor Centre, which occupies the former St Mary’s Church, overlooking the quayside. Then I passed through the Sage, and walked down the steps towards Baltic Square, where I learned that Yoda apparently has a new job:
Backwards, that sentence is.
Then I had the usual look around the Baltic – where there was an exhibit that I actually liked! It’s a load of silver-plated brass band instruments which have been crushed in an industrial press, then suspended in a circle with a single light in the centre, making shadows around the walls. It’s by Cornelia Parker, who did a piece called Cold Dark Matter, which I enjoyed when I saw it some years ago. That one involved getting the Army to blow up a shed, then hanging the resultant fragments in a gallery, as if freezing the moment of the explosion. Cool.
After that, I briefly toyed with the idea of going somewhere else, but decided not to overdo it and got one of the yellow buses back into Gateshead.
 Astute readers wondering what happened to yesterday’s report, and indeed Friday’s are advised that any apparent absence of posts is due to thingies in the space-time wossname, and that they are there really. Depending on your frame of reference, of course
 Not an actual milestone, as it’s not actually going anywhere
 It’s the one on the left that’s being most annoying
 Which will appear in a gallery post once the tuits are located
 Well, the rubble will be going somewhere before it’s recycled into new buildings
