    typical ... you wait four years for a bus and then three come along all at once, same day, same time, same place, all heading in different and potentially interesting directions, but are they all taking place in parallel or one after the other, according to TLF's new web site its all happening on November 6th between 7-9 pm at the NPG. But then again I don't understand the layout of TLF's website either, you think your reading chronologically left-to-right top to bottom, then realise its top-to-bottom, left to right but then again no. I think its an Asian layout to be read bottom-to-top - diagonal right-to-left. Any ideas?(1) A Necessary Madness: Love as a mental illness. Dr Frank Tallis(2) Action at a distance: Magic, power and control in pre-modern Europe. Dr Stephen Clucas (3) Creation, Illumination and Transmutation: Robert Lenkiewicz, the Science of Kabbalah and the Art of Alchemy. Peter J. Forshaw But what of the Kosher conference, well potentially much more fun I think, TLF have blagged their way into the stayed, sceptic, feminised perspective of a 'symposium' at Glasgow uni. staged around a Hannah Frank celebration. The two day gig is packed with such penetrating keynote questions as;(1) 'Can Seeing a Jewish Woman's Face be Like Seeing the Face of God?: The Impossibility of the Female Jewish Sublime in 20th Century Jewish Art'(2) 'Seeing Jewish: An American Jewish Feminist Perspective'The call for papers posed the contrived; "Questions about the role of identity in art abound, and these questions only increase when the artist is associated with a particular social group, be it religious, gendered, or ethnic, through their own self-presentation or the efforts of outside scholars or critics. To what extent does association with a social group influence the production of art? To what extent does an awareness of such associations influence the viewer’s experience of art? "Lenkiewicz should go off like a hand grenade in this environment, people should have their world rocked - How will TLF deliver here, we can only guess unless anyone is brave enough to venture into the gorbalsOn the bright side though, if anyone gets a bit peckish there is plenty of food available, you know, the sort that had its carotid arteries and both jugular veins slit and then bled to death in the throughs of distress in order to satisfy the brainwashed .... how reassuring. Come on TLF get on that stage and sort these fanatics out ... We should be able to hear the screams in London.

    For a newbie Frank there seems to be a readymade agenda – could you let us in on it?

    Sticking my neck out a bit Marlowe, I'd say that 'Frank' is no newbie. His last two posts have ALL the hallmarks of certain past regulars, ie; Kevin, CID, (Jack Sparrow even?). Anyway, I agree about TLF's new website - the homepage is a tad cluttered (visually)! It might have been a good idea for TLF to have used the 'robertlenkiewicz.co.uk' domain name? that site, although derelict (what a waste of a good domain!!), has quite a good simple homepage, and is ALWAYS at the TOP of all 'searches' for Robert Lenkiewicz! Unless of course TLF don't own that domain name?

    I think I recognise a tone here.Sounds like our old combative slighty batty Kevin may have come out of retirement. Same style, same idiotic rantings? Anyway Frank you dont read a website homepage in any order old love. The eye scans across it and one clicks on whatever is of the most interest. I think you have got it in one marlowe (KEVIN CID) but not Jacksparrow! Although I must say I DID enjoy CID's take on the Bearnes auction at Westpoint

    um. sorry to disappoint chaps, I can see there is some longing for the good ol boys but unfortunately I cant make the claim to be CID although I did copy his style of post (im a big fan, some really funny stuff posted by CID) As for Sparrow-Kevin well, I like the debates that used to rage on the forum – you rmemeber im sure before it became a meeting place for ebay bidders, book pushers and poster pickers and sort of dyed over the last few months so figured a dose of Kevin styley would wake everyone up and it sure did.so yes, the new website from tlf is confusing, does anyone know if the talks on 6th nov are all happening in one session?and I think the approach tlf take to their first invited (albeit by the sponsor) non lenkiewicz themed colloquium is important. real fox in the hen house stuff, or maybe they play it passive submissive and do another walk through of the bleeding projects again, again, again ......

    What you mean there are 3 of you with identical nutty opinions? Are you being cloned?
