Morning Penance
In no way have I been out to all the places I intend to. Some of them I've just not gotten around to yet, while others (mainly comprising alternative music festivals in Germany) simply scare me to the point that I need promises of being looked after to at least a cursory degree before I contemplate finding my passport.

However, nowhere on any of these lists does "Reflex - the 80s Bar" appear. Plus even if I did go - being dressed as a pirate wasn't even on the same planet.

So why, gentle reader, did I end up last night first wandering up Broad Street, then sitting in a club wearing a Tricorn hat and some LRP kit, singing along (in my own semi-private way) to music I completely failed to appreciate when it was first released?

Actually, I'm not really asking for forgiveness, but rather to understand myself a little better. And good excuses why I shouldn't check my goth card on the way out, and leave the building.

Certainly had some fun moments though...

Oh, and the KoL/Features review is up at http://www.bbc.co.uk/birmingham/content/articles/2005/06/27/kol_feature.shtml. The slightly sarcastic comment I included relating to the photo-pass ambiguity in the cover email seems to have been included in the review - ooops.

And finally a poll - help me justify something I'm going to do anyway, probably, through an exercise in LJ-democracy. I promise to consider all points of view...

Maybe it's just too early in the morning, but I'm having real difficulty parsing the sentence "In no way have I been out to all the places I've ever been." Is the last 'been' supposed to be 'intended'?

I'm soo glad that's not just me. I've just spent about 15 minutes reading and re-reading that line! Need Caffiene.

*giggle* I remember trying to get you out to Reflex after your brithday Chinese meal and getting sniffed at by everyone! It sounded so inviting from across the street..

At no point in my journal (before or after edits to make sense) did I imply I'd go again.

Dressing in a silly costume made it more bearable, but still...

Ooops. My bad.

Fancy trying to write an entry with a degree of narrative and messing up in the first sentence. The shame of it.

Anyway - history has been changed... thanks for pointing it out :-)

I've been to a reflex bar -- wasn't dressed as a pirate though. I even danced on the revolving dance floor. It was awful and I hate 80s music with a passion.

I like some of the music in a nostalgia sense. Plus I think having shivering timbers does help overall.

Hope you don't mind if I link to your Subways/Chalets pictures from my LJ. I will, of course take them off if you don't want me to..

Your poll is a great example of Blair-democracy :)
