THE VIRTUES on channel 4 is pretty upsetting, but quite good. I've always thought Stephen Graham was a very interesting actor, and he gets better all the time; a knockout performance.
Speaking on (grunt) money, I popped into the lil' junk shop on Lavender Hill, near the Chase, yesterday, and he's got a case full of nice, heavy Indian silver rings. There were two with figures of Ganesh on them, and I figured I need some obstacles removed from my life, even though I really, really don't have money to spend on such fripperies. He gave me both for £25, though, and in Covent Garden, or Camden, say, they'd be asking about £50 each....Still, quite mental of me.
