Did my oil painting for much of the day, occasionally venturing into the common room to listen to Claire and Duncan indulging in petty small talk or reminiscences. Me and Lee stayed at school painting until almost five.
In the evening I met Lee at the Easterby Film Theatre to see Eraserhead and The Tempest. The place was quite crowded, mainly with student types. I felt quite alone, and when I saw Julie Walker sitting with David McCall I was struck by my complete lack of contact in that sphere. The films were strange and I didn’t know whether to like them or not. Eraserhead was especially weird and quite gory in parts. I hadn’t a clue what it was on about but the images were good anyway.
