I love the new rave mosh pits, they smell like fruit pastilles
Klaxons last night for some (not very) secret gig which I got tickets to purely by walking past the right box office just as it was opening. More in the flow than in the know. I was a bit ill for the Brookes gig so to see them from the right vantage point (deep in the mosh pit with indie elbows in my face) was the business. I lost my watch, into the mosh it went and it never came back. But it was a new rave watch (plastic, translucent red + skulls, £6.99 from Claires) and would have wanted to go that way. It has also been reliably gaining 15 minutes a month for... well, for a while. Possibly since I bought it. I also scored a glowstick for my woodpecker! And we got back in time to watch David Attenborough snake-bothering on Life in Cold Blood. Rock and roll!
While we're on links, if you enjoyed Being Human -- watch it here -- (the pilot for the vampire/werewolf/ghost flatshare series -- think Shallow Grave meets Ultraviolet with a side serving of Queer as Folk) you can tell BBC3, though I'm pessimistic as (unlike the rather awful Phoo Action) there's no celebrity involvement apparently the Executive Producer is Rob Pursey, bassist from Talulah Gosh/Heavenly/Tender Trap so hush my mouth...
In other news, I was going to post a photo here that would give a portion of my friendslist a laugh maybe but it seems a bit a stupid now and the people in question won't be in the mood for laughing anyway. (beat) Damn, I'll post it anyway. My letter to Tharg: (larger sizes on clickthrough)
