snips and snails

There's an exhibition at the Oxford Botanical Gardens of insects and other small life-forms made from berries, leaves and twigs. It's in the alpine house; possibly as an ironic response, ants have invaded most of the plants in the tropical house corridoors.

Interstella 5555 (Ziggy Stardust meets G Force) is great (wear earplugs if you dislike Daft Punk).

Blame grocko for this: Don't trust the Swiss. They have developed floating tents and will try to steal your lungs while you sleep.

I'm going to a folk club acoustic evening tonight. Wish me luck.

It'll be great. Remember to take your bells on sticks and hankies.

going? to see?
there wasn't a playlist. We just went.

As it happens, we saw a fun (very cute) female duo called Rubicon (who could really do with having a more unique name) and a bizarre acoustic experimentalist called Amrit Sond ( http://www.amritsond.com/ does *not* do him justice ) plus, oh, a lot of other stuff. Very eclectic.

Re: going? to see?
Ooh, we have a kid pop band in NZ called Rubicon.

googled for amrit + rubicon
and found ....

The Acoustic Session: Sarah Jane Summerfield + Robin Mughardjie + Christian Wilton King + Naked Starjump + Amrit + Layla + Rubicon + Nick Higton + Tom Mcinerney

... I think there were more than that playing, though.

Yeah, and take a blindfold in case you dislike japanese animation.
