Brotherhood of the Wolf - Masks

Weekend Report

Sadly I didn't get to the gig last night as I discovered the stupid times the promoter had arranged the bands to come on with the next day being a school day. Apparently he thought it was a bank holiday here in Englad today (which it was when my grandmother got married 70 years ago!!!). You'd have thought that someone who had lived most of their life in this country would know by now when the bank holidays take place!

I swear if London had a core goth/industrial promoter who had a brain and the time they'd clean up in this city!

Anyway, due to Sunday nights not being the best for public transport and the main band due on stage after the last train I gave it a miss.

Got quite a lot done at home instead and popped over to my mothers for lunch in the afternoon which was nice and relaxed.Actually walked most of the way there as it was such nice weather yesterday.

Saturday night I was tempted out to Sinbad & Alex's and took wine and DVDs. Jasmina was there and Lianna come home later and the night was, again, relaxed and fun as we watched the fantastic 'The Departed' which is still a great movie on the second watch. It really has got some brilliant lines in it :)

(Film) Stardust - Indianapolis Tuesday 14th August

Neil Gaiman's "Stardust" is released in the States this weekend and I really fancy catching it (especially as it's not being released here in the UK until October!).

I've checked cinemas and times in Indianapolis and there is a screening at the cinema between our hotel and the Convention Centre (I believe the cinema is called the UA Circle Centre) on Tuesday evening about 10ish.

Now it's cutting things very fine as we're not due to touchdown in Indy until about 8.30 but (and it's a large but) if we get to the hotel and booked in with time to spare I reckon we might be hitting the screening. I'll check again at the weekend to see if there's a later showing but is anyone else game?

If we don't do it on Tuesday then the only other possibilities would be Wednesday afternoon/early evening after we've set up and before the Diane Jones Awards Ceremony or maybe Sunday evening.

Actually reereading this I reckon Wednesday afternoon post set-up is probably the better bet but still - any of you guys and gals at the convention fancy catching the film?
