In no-particular order, first here's some photos of Zombified last night. The lighting in the Windsor is very centre-focussed and biased towards stage-right. This makes getting anything without flash quite tough. I'm not terribly pleased with the results tbh - I won't try and take any more photos this weekend!
The bands themselves didn't float my boat - Kill Van Helsing were too rock'n'roll for my taste, Rhombus harkened back to the old Goth Rock of the late 80s (I've moved on even if they haven't) and while I really wanted to like Ausgang they completely failed to float my boat. Still, each to their own and it's nice to have and support a live music scene in Birmingham rather than just moan about not having one.
Nice to finally talk to missymodee in person though.
I saw Serenity yesterday and while I don't demand the couple of hours of my life back, was not blown away. I think Joss is getting a bit lazy and while there were flashes of witty dialogue it didn't, as has been said elsewhere, have any heart to it at all.
Then, on the way back I decided to have a little cycle accident. To be precise I didn't intend to have an accident, but if I pretend it was deliberate I look like less of a fool? I was approaching a right hand turn, had clearance to move, so started to turn. Unfortunately a combination of wet roads and slicker tyres meant that my back wheel was too keen to turn and flipped out from underneath me - leaving me lying in the middle of a main road with a bicycle on top of me. Ooops.
I've ruined the saddle, bashed one knee, scraped the skin off the other shin and might have destroyed the front gear-set, but fortunately wasn't being tailgated as is so often the case - otherwise I'd be dead rather than worrying about the bike!
Must do some work now, then SNSNFNGS later for a couple of hours.
