Hi,

We're off to the Gallery of Everything tomorrow to view the Jarvis Bedroom installation. I've seen from the Pulpwiki updates that clearly theres a lot of good 'teenage diary' stuff going on there. There are some lovely extracts on the Wiki. Thanks to who ever added them!

My question - what's been photographed by you lot, and does anything remain to be obsessively photographed? I'm happy to take time taking photos but dont want to anything that's already been done! Let me know what's been done and what it would be useful for me to take, and we can pool them.

Wish I'd known you were going, it'd have saved me the trip!

I will be there today, going to get as many photos as I can but I'm guessing most of it will be in the book anyway?

There's a lot of handwritten lyrics on the 'bedroom' wall, which my meagre phone camera couldn't get anything more than a blurry mess of. If you're able to get those captured it would be great to see them! The lighting is deliberately dark and you can't get too close to them...

Enhance your trip with a visit to the Flowerpot pub across the road!

Lots of stuff is in the book, but I dont think much of what is up on the bedroom walls is. As hawalius says, you'll need a good camera for them.

Also on display are the Glen Marshall films, edited down quite a bit into one, I think. The soundtrack for that is a Pulp rehearsal tape of Shakespeare Rock. The first half of it, anyway. Jarvis has the full tape of this and describes it as barely listenable. On this evidence It is listenable. Just not very good! The tape itself is part of the exhibition. But not for playing!

Sounds great. The gallery only confirmed at the weekend that the exhibition has been extended into June (it was meant to finish yesterday). I had only heard Jarvis say it during his mini-gigs there so I was worried that he had been mis-informed.

A stream of his talk with Miranda Sawyer from the Southbank Centre in London last Friday is still viewable on the Dice app (Think it's about 8. I thought the ticket prices for audience tickets were far too expensive - for some of the tickets you'd pay the same to see a full gig by Jarv Is...) but it's worth a watch for anyone who didn't make it to his mini-tour promoting the book around the country.

During the Q&A some absolute bone-head in the room asked Jarvis "Was the time when you invaded the stage and the Michael Jackson incident at the Brit Awards one of the most surreal moments of your life?"...you could just see Jarvis thinking "Read the fucking room, mate. I've been banging on about creativity and the origins of Pulp for the last hour". He handled it pretty well, though I did laugh when his initial response was "What do you think?!".
