Sunday Bloody Sunday

The news today is just as bad as it has been over the last few days.

To lighten up the mood just a little bit, I'm reproducing something rather silly that appeared in today's The Malta Independent on Sunday. Ħeqq, xi trid tagħmel?

60-Second Interview - Toni Sant
Last May UK-based Toni Sant gained national notoriety for correctly predicting that Finland would win the Eurovision Song Contest. Dr Sant is also (lesser) known as a lecturer in Performance & Creative Technologies at the University of Hull’s Scarborough Campus as well as founder and creative director of the MaltaMedia Online Network.

This week he returns briefly to Malta to evoke the ghosts of dead conceptual artists and rattle some more cultural skeletons, just for the fun of it. Toni Sant is presenting a collaborative research project entitled “Objects Found or Lost?”, on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August at the MITP Theatre at 9pm. This is being held in conjunction with SUPA 2006 and is part of the Malta Arts Festival – Summer 2006 organised by the Malta Council for Culture and the Arts. See for details. However, he is most looking forward to seeing Xtruppaw’s next live gig at Naasha’s in San Gwann on 29 July.
