#JohnLeeHooker would've turned 98 today. "Ev’ybody thinks about death sometimes, I think. You ain’t gonna be here forever," he told @RollingStone in 1998. "You gotta go someday — that’s gonna happen for sure. And whether you come back, I don’t know. Some people say you come back; I dunno. I don’t know nobody who’s come back... And whether there’s another world, we don’t know. So just live for as long as you can, enjoy life, enjoy the pretty women in the world. Just live and let live. And love people.

In this weekend's paper our Art Critic Waldemar Januszczak writes about his visit to Banksy's "Bemusement Park", Dismaland. Our photographer, Jeremy Young went with him to capture all the fun of the fair for us. This is the artist's largest scale work- a disused lido on the seafront of Weston-super-Mare converted into a twisted parody of Disneyland. The sullen attendants wear pink high viz jackets and mouse ears, the fairytale castle is a fire damaged ruin and Cinderella is lying dead after a coach crash, surrounded by paparazzi. Banksy isn't the only artist on display here- the collection includes pieces by David Shrigley, Damian Hirst and Jenny Holzer to name but a few. A warning on the website says: "The following are strictly prohibited in the Park – spray paint, marker pens, knives and legal representatives of the Walt Disney Corporation." Dismaland is open for the next 5 weeks. The ticket website has been almost impossible to use, though some people have speculated that it too is all part of the experience.
