where does all the rain come from?

Wasn't a bad weekend at caption comics convention, though my impression was, fewer people. Or perhaps I was just missing my generation. Met two separate women who were keeping a diary of their lives in comic form, though only one would show me hers. Now I'm kicking myself for not getting their details to pass to sallyshinystars...

I also went workshopping and was struck (during the 24 minute comic) by the idea of capping my ornamental urges by setting an egg-timer per panel to keep me on schedule. Then I did the Al Davison workshop, where I managed to disgrace myself thoroughly during a visualisation exercise. Oh my subconscious. It's not really fit to take out in public. After all, only last night I was dreaming that Fat Boy Slim was playing in a semi-reconstructed Zodiac and the sole came off my shoe, whereupon the woman on the door (who was a cross between Zodiac Amber and my most memorable Job Adviser) told me just to prise off the other sole, and it would be fine, but I was like it's my shoe! and trying to get the soul up off the floor (to which it was firmly stuck) so I could put it back on.

Actually, speaking of gigs and stuff there is a Space Heroes of the People gig this saturday at the Port Mahon with some other interesting bands (details, myspace links, etc. over in timscience's journal) and oh hey, I meant to post this link ages ago: Jeremy sings Barbie is a robot. That's a direct link to the mp3, if it's playing up you can find it by going to Gappy Tooth and clicking on "listen".

Damnit, I can't beleive I forgot about the perseids! We'd been talking about it before food (while I was lying down groaning and feebly clutching the cat while my migraine medication kicked in) but then Richard Dawkins came on the telly ....
