Squee

I went out on Friday night.....

Don't really know what was up last night but I never managed to get into the 'zone' where I wanted to get on the dancefloor. It was great seeing loads of people who I'd hadn't seen for months though - especially the lovely cookwitch, ingenue_the bluehelen and mundenlogic (even though didn't get much chance to natter) and also catching up with gypseymission whom I only seem to bump into at the beginning and end of the year these days for some strange reason?

I hope snesgirl enjoyed her first B-Movie and got home safe and sound afterwards? And my apologies to Mr Keyes for forgetting to bring his book (shall remember it this afternoon!).

Anyway I decided to bail early whilst I still had time to catch the train back home (thus saving myself silly taxi fares) as my throat had also started playing up a bit (still does this morning too but I'm blaming it on the amount I must of smoked last night - eek!). So said my goodbyes (and hellos in a couple of places!) and vanished off into the darkness of the night.

Played text wars with a couple of people about 2am, who if you're reading this drop me a line and we can sort something out for this evening. Either kidnap you for the gig or hit a pub/DVD locally. Could probably do with some enjoyable company and alcohol tonight if you're still free!

This afternoon I'm heading into town for a couple of hours to meet up with some Cammies and hopefully catch the footie match. This evening is either the Mono gig, drinks locally or staying in and getting some work done (probably trying to fix my still unfixed email problem....grrr...).

Still don't know what I'm going to do for New Years Eve. I think chatting to a few friends and figuring something out is probably favourite now before I go ahead and book tickets for things.

SPAM

Has anyone else been getting a sudden influx of Spam mails over night? My usual tally of 50-70 (max) in my Spam filter shot up to almost 500 overnight! And I seem to be getting quite a good flow hitting that, and seeping through into my regular emails, still.

Just wondered if it was just me or a more general thing? Most of the mails carry the 'Mail Undelivered' tag with the obligitory attachment which never gets opened ;p

Me = Idiot

You know I've been talking about seeing Mono tonight all week. Well, just checked the date online and it's actually on Sunday 4th December.

I'm a muppet.

Drinks or work it is tonight for me then (sigh).

The Bush Collection....

sticklebrick mentioned that the Kate Bush back catalogue was available at £4.99/CD at Tower. As it turned out Virgin also had them at £4.99 each so Stuart picked me up the set last night :P

Thanks to everyone for their reccomendations as to which of her albums were better than others. It seems everyone has their own favourites as one persons #1 was anotehr persons least liked. Well, now I can drown myself in her music and then report back to you good folks with my own Top Ten Bush opinions :p

Popping into London Town myself now. God knows what the weekend holds for me this time round. I feel the most unconnected and 'drifting' than I have done in ages. That's what happens when your plans get swiped from underneath you I guess and you're left with '......'.

See some of you on my travels.

The Call of Cthulhu Silent Movie

Thought some of you might be interested to know that yesterday I received a sample copy of 'The Call of Cthulhu' Silent-Movie DVD from HPLHS Motion Pictures.

                                                                                 

"Written in 1926, just befiore the advent of 'talking' pictures, The Call of Cthulhu is one of the most famous and influential tales of H.P. Lovecraft, the father of gothic horror. Now the story is brought richly to life in the style of a classic 1920s silent movie, with a haunting original symphonic score. Using the "Mythoscope" process - a mix of modern and vintage techniques - the filmmakers have worked to create the most authentic and faithful screen adaptation of a Lovecraft story tey attempted."

I'll watch it this weekend (running time 47 minutes shouldn't be hard to fit in) and if it's any good I'll probably be setting up distribution and selling of it in time for Christmas (I'll actually try for Dragonmeet in London on 3rd December)..

I'm guessing it'll be in the £14.99 region. So any takers? :p
