24 hours...
Post-happy this weekend it seems.

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.

Kill Van Helsing Ausgang Rhombus

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.

Sorry to hear about mishap. I'm convinced from many regular cyclists that it appears to be a complicated way of giving you scars as opposed to being a mode of transport.

And it was a new bike, too. :(

I'm still not quite recovered from very similar accident (only with fewer corners, turns, and wet roads, and more hills, braking, and ground up leaves) in the spring. Physically, I'm fine, of course, but I still have the Fear. I don't trust my brakes (with some reason I think - must go get them looked at), and I tend to go down hills slower than I go up them. :)

I'll get it along to the shop today or tomorrow - I'm sure it'll be ok. The saddle at least is a nicely superficial element.

I suspect going slower will be, at least for me, more evidence of getting older, feeling older and being less confident of my own immortality and indestructability.

And to think, I wanted to stay young and beautiful forever :-P

Was super to (finally!) meet up with you and Quondam too! xxx
