Noooooooooooooo! (tm)

I need to be back in Cambridge on the 1st of October. The Arcade Fire are playing the Leadmill, in Sheffield, on the 1st of October. It's their only tour date in England apart from the festivals. The one band I really, really wanted to see, coming to a venue near me, and I won't be anywhere near me. Grrr.

Listen to their album, Funeral, if it's the only thing you listen to this year. It's a masterpiece. I am not joking. Buy this album. I've had the song "Rebellion (Lies)" in my iTunes library for about two months and it's already racked up over 50 plays, not counting the times I've listened to it on the other computer or on my stereo.

Also, if you feel like writing or RPing go to Tazlure. I'm enjoying it muchly. If reading's more your thing, check out my other blog, a co-authored sci-fi story. If you'd rather see an opera, come and see Iolanthe at the Minack Theatre, Cornwall, 12th-17th September.

That's enough plugs for one afternoon. Pity I don't have anything worthwhile to say. See you all soon.

In theory. However, I'm relying on a mother for transport (who has already booked a hotel room for that night). In addition, you'll be pleased to hear I have a get-in that weekend ;)

WHAT?!!!!! It starts already!! Are we going to have to chain you to things to stop you from living in the theatre in manner of phantom like person?!

Alsoalso, do you have college kiddies?

George Walkden said...

Yep. Threepenny Opera is on week 0. However, I'm not planning to do any more shows until week 7.

I do have kids: a lawyer and a medic. I'm glad to find that mine and Latifa's efforts were not in vain :S

(oh God the parenting metaphor is wearing thin...)
