Brilliantly clever dreams this morning. Both of us slept through an hour of snooze alarm, in proper dream-traps. He was in a logic puzzle, I was a creeping body horror thingy that reset when I half woke with the alarm leading me to go "phew" and go back to sleep and try and get it right this time. Idiot.

Right, let's see. I got sent through an email about All Tomorrow's Parties. It's non-controversial, requires no action, but I thought I should share it for the sake of the first senetence, o Bicketeers:

Please note Portishead and Aphex Twin opted to present their shows in
Centre Stage and will be doing 2 performances each so they could perform
their sets with no restrictive sound issues due to the bottom end
frequencies. To make this work we have cut the capacity of the festival by
over 600 people to allow much easier access for all fans to be able to
come and see the shows of their choice.

The Portishead show will be wrist-banded so all fans are guaranteed
entry. At check-in please choose your preferred show day (Friday or
Saturday) The wristbands will be on a first come first served basis, however
if there are special circumstances that means you are arriving late on
the Friday evening or not until the Saturday morning and can only
attend the Saturday show please contact us on feedback@atpfestival.com with
"wristband" in the subject line and let us know and we can make
arrangements to hold back wristbands.

The Aphex Twin shows will be on a first come first serve basis on the
night - once the room is at capacity we will let people in on a one out
one in basis.

In other news, I finally found the tape measure! (What was it doing on the corner of the art-books bookshelf? Something IKEA related, probably.) badasstronaut, my little downstairs toilet is 175x95c, do you have enough vinyl left over? It'll have to be carved up for the sake of the loo and the sink anyway, so going a bit patchy is no problem.

And now I'm off to Heythrop Park for a staff conference on mental health. Let's hope I come back with mine intact. I feel vaguely strengthened by the lessons of the Decision Hedgehog last night, so I'm hopeful. And also planning to sneak in references to small woodland mammals, if I can.

Heh... bottom end frequencies.

I wil check the vinyl later when I'm not running late for work.

I don't want to miss Aphex Twin!

Me either! I'm kind of more in a panic about that than Portishead. Either way, I think something to read in the queues may turn out to be this ATP's accessory du jour.

Other woodland animals in the comments
Now include.....

The quandary mouse
The badger of indecision
The indecision porcupine (typical, can't even decide which animal to use)
The science fox
And my current favourite: The random-Boolean-generating Thompson's Gazelle.

Today was fairly outward-bound in nature, featuring the compass of shame and the waterfall of bereavement.

Speaking of which, must go google "Forensic Psychologist"
