Well, I went to see the Big Bisexual Sheepherd movie. Mm-mmm, Jake Gyllenhall is easy on the eye. An interesting movie in its subversion of the usual gay/adulterous themes; the substitute of a sheep killed by a coyote for the usual tragic murdered/suicided lover, the accidental oversight that leads to ... well, nothing much really, the denial of the forbidden affair which, instead of setting both its participants free, traps them in repeating the same, stupid dance year after year. Interesting, modern, beautiful, possibly even revolutionary but not (for me) terribly sexy or involving. Still, 2006. The year Marlboro men started coming in twos.

In other news, wow, some of you have had an awful weekend. My sympathies.

More news: I have creative block.

It'll be back. Maybe you could call it a holiday instead of a block?

but I need it now.

after all the build up, I was a littler disappointed: I wasn't expecting to be turned on, I must admit, but I was expecting to be moved more than I finally was.

Heart of stone, possibly.

(there's more odd electronica at the ICA Weds, should you be in the mood)

That's you, Mr Stoneyheart. Not. Mmm Scanner. Kind of tempted.

Re: ha!
info at http://www.sprawl.org.uk/ again.

I may have lost a couple of brownie points on the door on the boat when I failed to recognise Scanner when he claimed his guest list place, but hey, these electronica types all look the same to me.

Re: ha!
ah, ye're a hippy. Despite the hair.

Re: ha!
at least I have now hacked back that dreadful post-rock beard. An ineviitable reaction to realsing I fitted in at the Mogwai gig.

I'm sure you didn't fit in just as much as everyone else didn't. I've decided to give Mogwai a miss when they visit Oxford, going to go to Coldcut instead.

ack! The Horror! The Horror!
I misread that as "Coldplay".

Are you in London later today, then? If so, text me. :)

as if!
Coldplay are alright in their place. Their place is not my night out.

Not today I'm afraid, I'm too knacked -- just come out of a five-hour meeting, and I can't see for strategic wotsits.

Rain check tho'

"Foreign film"
Did they just eat pudding all the time?

Was the closing theme Pansy Division's "Cowboys Are Frequently Secretly Fond of Each Other?"

beans, dried venison, beans, beer, turkey, beans
... and no, in fact I spent the entire film on the edge of my seat praying that it wasn't about to break out into John Bloody Denver.

Hmm, looking perhaps (looking at that shopping list) the closing titles should have been "cowboys are secretly fond of the small of each others' farts"
