Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
To Nottingham... and beyond!
Friday night was, despite the best of efforts, a Friday night at Edwards. New name in the frame, but pulses weren't racing. I took the camera so have three or four half-decent shots - I can see this club photography lark will need more practice. Things wot I learnt: 1) Skirts in high winds are bad; 2) I should have taken the tripod in; 3) Dancing in a jacket can make your shirt get very sweaty.

Yesterday was a short trip to Nightmare in Nottingham. Despite the best of intentions, I didn't make it to SNFNGS first, but did drive very very fast up the M42, didn't get lost in Nottingham, and only had to do one bit reversing down a one-way street. The club was a lot of fun, well balanced mix of EBM, Dance and Industrial music, plus a bit of NMA - who could ask for more... Lovely atmosphere, though if there were more than a handful of people in the club who weren't benefitting from altered brain chemistry then I'd be surprised.

Needless to say, will be going back again next month. Today I have been to the gym and avoided doing any OU. Best get on with that in a bit I guess.

I hope to make it to Nightmare at some point... have been hoping to go for quite a long time. I think I'm going to have to pick my date carefully though to avoid running into people I might prefer not to see. ;-)

When is the next one?

Second Sat - next one clashes with you gigging in London I think. Then I'm away the following one at least. Plus gadgeeuropa is threatening to stop doing it so he can settle down and do the marriage/kids thing.

I have not yet dared attempt set up my tripod in a club (tho' from the last set, I could have done with one). Let me know how it goes for you :-)

Will do. The club in question isn't busy enough to make me worry, but whether I get around to it still...

I'm tempted to buy a new tripod soon as the current gear I have is a bit too flimsy to actually hold my camera with the heavier lenses level.

I've used the pod with some success, but it doesn't help when all the surfaces available to rest it on are vibrating with bass!

It's fine with a 50mm f/1.4, but the 17-35 f/2.8 is a indeed a little too heavy to be properly stable.

Does sound like a fun club, might be worth organising a trip down there sometime (when the weather improves maybe - it was a bit hairy getting back from Sheffield the other night after Batfink).

This month there is another gadge night called Nightmare beats. It's on the Saturday the 29th.
It's kinda like nightmare but on the heavier dance side....kinda more hard house, techno and noise than synth pop, ebm and industrial, but the mix varies.
You might enjoy it.....

Had already considered it, but am not free on the 29th unfortunately.

The more you avoid OU work, the bigger it gets... You sure it's something you want to be doing?

Nah, tis under control. Just needs a bit more final polishing.
