Well I did manage to pop down to Waterloo today and book my Eurostar tickets. I'm arriving in Paris around 10.30am on Friday 4th March and getting back into the UK late on Sunday afternoon. Personally I can't wait to be in Paris again and have already confirmed that Delphine will be coming up for a couple of days. Alexander may come up with her which would be nice as I've only ever spoken to him and have never met him in person. I also now have to contact a couple of the companies I'm working with in Paris to see if they fancy meeting up for a few hours and possibly treat me to some good French cuisine :-p

I failed to get to any comic shops today as I wanted to come back home and have a quick shave and shower before heading back into town again this evening. I also failed on my quest to prebook Nine Inch Nails tickets. Both The Astoria and Stargreen don't know how many (or even if) they will be allotted any. Any they have will be going on sale on Saturday morning and I'm pulling a few strings on friday night to see if I can secure any then. I HAVE TO SEE NINE INCH NAILS AT THE ASTORIA!!!!!!!!!

I did pick up my Rammstein and PWEI tickets though.

I also popped into HMV and brought a couple of Nightwish CDs along with Babylon 5 Seasons 3 + 4, Girl With A Pearl Earring and GOTH: The Ultimate Collection on DVD. The GOTH collection has 55 videos on it plus 12 audio tracks and, whilst I would certainly debate the gothness of a number of the bands on it (Die Krupps, Clock DVA, Chemlab and Front Line Assembly for example :p), the line up does look like it should be an interesting mix.

Anyway, gotta go and check the water level and then have a nice soak. Chat to you all soon and if anyone knows how to get a guaranteed ticket for NIN please let me know. Pretty please? Also, any other tour dates in the UK or Europe could be interesting.

Ta Ta!

NIN
And if you find out anything useful about NIN tickets, let me know. If I can get my hands on them, I'll be coming down to London to see them. At last!

Cheers

Re: NIN
NIN are playing a small gig at The Astoria on, I think, 30th March (either that or the 19th). Tickets have been selling to fan club memebers but any spares are going on general sale on Saturday. 9am on the internet, 10am at The Astoria Box Office and Stargreen if any are left.

I'm going to try and buy as many as I can get my grubby mits on and will let people know how many spares I have. To be honest though I think I'll be lucky to get more than a couple (if any) at this rate. Even my 'friends on the inside' have said they can't get their hands on them :(

Re: NIN
See above reply I made to Malc.
I've been lucky enough to see them quite a few times (5 I think?) and they are well worth catching.

I'm very jealous. Enjoy Paris!

(I'm moving up to Leeds in the next couple of months, btw. I understand that _Travelling Man_ is the place to be checking out there, rpg-shop wise? :))

Yep, Travelling Man do have a shop in Leeds. I don't know what it's like though as I've never been. Travelling Man has a chain of stores across the north. Of course if you can't find what you'd like you can always give me a shout as we do mail order :)
Have fun and hope to catch up with you sooner or later!

Oh well, I'll be able to give you a report after the weekend, given I'm going up there to flat-hunt. ;) And as you say, there's always your mail-order and phone-order, which I used to do a lot more of before we got a local rpg shop in Southampton . . . Have fun in Paris!

Love to join you for NIN,
suspect no chance there now.

However Claire and I are doing the Rammstein gig
see you there!

While you are in France, can you keep an eye out for Dr Who RPG stuff?
Have a great trip.

I'm going to Rammstein on the Saturday.

Will keep an eye out for you re: Dr Who. Which edition are you after though, and what titles?

Remaining NIN tickets go on sale on saturday. A proper tour should be announced for later in the year though so you should be able to catch them then if you can't this time round.

Re: PWEI!
PWEI are playing two nights at Shepards Bush Empire in London and a couple up in Birmingham. I'm at the gig on Tuesday (25th January). I believe they have been recording some new material and will be going on a proper tour later this year if these dates go well.
