I love David Hockney's clarity in interviews.  He seems Yorkshire to the core, 
the sort of person who says what is and bothers with nothing more.  If you ever 
see the interview with Melvin Bragg when Hockney takes you through a 
retrospective, note the moment when he says he saw cast shadows in Laurel and 
Hardy movies and concluded, a boy in cold Bradford, that Los Angeles was a 
goal.  He went.  Told us about swimming pools, boys, light and perspective, how 
his father fidgeted, L.A. canyon wiggles, pools, what it's like being up a 
ladder, eye to eye with a stop sign, with a police helicopter hovering.
