Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
I'm sure I did this last weekend...
Of course, the first night in ages where a number of inwardly facing not-normally-go-out friends talk about visiting the Hell-that-is-Edwards I'm away...

Here I am, at a Royal Mail Consignia Royal Mail Training Centre adjoining the M6, learning how to be a better manager. Except we're actually roleplaying. In the sense that I'm currently roleplaying a Sales & Marketing Exec for an Ice Cream company. Marketing is an area where I don't feel very comfortable, being a naturally honest person. (No offence to harryh who helps keep me sane).

Unfortunately this means no sneaking behind the tutor, leaping out and shouting "Quad". Oh well.

Next week seems to be turning into the chance to do a gig every night, which might be do-able but is more likely to increase stress levels, and I must sort out my existing backlog - though now I have almost 1TB of storage in my PC there are less excuses not get onto it.

If anyone is interested in stalking me (go on, you know you want to) next week is turning into (half confirmed/half aspirational):
  • Monday: Subways, Birmingham with lupercal

  • Tuesday: Einsturzende Neubauten, London

  • Wednesday: Manic Street Preachers, Wolverhampton

  • Thursday: British Sea Power, Birmingham with immerwahr

  • Friday: Edwards with berrega

  • Saturday: Nightmare, Nottingham
But invitation of the week has been from hepstar to Coombefest which sounds like an amusing diversion for later in the summer.

Now, I must buy some sandals for the almost-finished Odyssey character, and persuade smittumi to let me help him with a flyer. Then prepare for the shock to the bank account that is a car service on Monday.

I wish you were about then - as I will need a writer. Oh well.

I've had to do the train-bus-train-train thing before too. I good way to make a longish journey into an entire day out.

*sulks* would love to come back wednesday to go... but can't.. my mother would kill me.. she is getting edgy enough bout my suggestion to leave thursday instead of saturday (there is no way i am staying til saturday, friday at the very very latest)

got a friend going to the Manics tonight.. not too happy with her either... oh well

journey ended up being ok... wait in the sunshine at banbury after a coach from leamington. Overall journey time an hour longer than it should have been.

I'll be at Neubaten on Tuesday, tho' I'm not shooting, just want to enjoy the show.

Last time I saw them was the time I caught the "bug" and wanted to take photos at gigs. I've had a ticket for ages, so if I can get the pass it'll be a bonus.

They're probably my favourite band with their amusing brand of teutonic oddness.

See you there!

Berrega's date might have changed.

Give him a call.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: April 2nd, 2005 12:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm not that worried. I'll catch up with him on MSN before then. If he's not playing I'm slightly more likely to go to Dark Light mind to see what that is like.

I've not arranged a pass yet - but will make some calls on Monday to see if it is possible.

I'm assuming you are a frequent eddies user and have found you via eddy's lj. I was just wondering if I had ever met you assuming you know eddy and the likes of Barrie, Em, Mark, Jude..............etc. So do I know you too?

Re: Off topic

I don't think so. I know Eddy, but not really any of the others except to recognise Barrie as Barrie.

If that makes sense.

Re: Off topic

Did you ever do any of Barries BBQ's when he used to live in Brum?

Re: Off topic

Nah - I was never in with the in crowd :-)

If you've been to Eddies in the last 6 months though, the various A3 photos on the walls are mine. I'm just about "in" enough to turn a grotty club into an art gallery.

Oh, and hello btw.

Re: Off topic

Hi to you too! Sorry for invading your lj btw I was on a random search. Shall have a look out for you and say hullo if you see me too.

Re: Off topic

Poke Eddy and get him to introduce us. It might take a while though as I have good intentions to get to Eddies, I often get distracted. I might try Dark Light on Friday if it's running rather than Eddies.
