Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
Last night I went to see New Model Army. The last couple of times I've taken a camera and set myself away from the rest of the crowd - crouching in front of the barrier, or climbing the balcony. Somehow apart, observing rather than participating. I've not found it difficult to get passes for the gigs, but last night I decided that instead of taking the social crutch instead I'll pack a clean t-shirt to change into and have a dance.

There are few bands that deliver the kind of consistent performance of NMA. There's been a few changes of course - Justin now needs a haircut and the new guitarist plays a very low-slung rock-style; but the crowd is mostly the same, the beats are the same and the bruises I won in the mosh are familiar old friends.

I know I would have enjoyed taking the camera and getting some photos, but I enjoyed getting batterd, pushed, sweating and having my glasses bent into odd shapes even more.

There was a grin on my face.

Today I have work to do. Tomorrow I have to give another talk, go to see Steve Vai and at some point I need to do two application forms before Friday.

Anyone interested in reviewing Dio on Friday? ephraim?

Damn, I forgot about Vai playing. I'm going to miss out on my quotient of wibbly-wank.

I'll be very interested in hearing what you think. On another note, when is the celebration for you finishing the OU exam?

Best call ephraim - we've no landline (therefore no internet access outside work, and he's off work) and his mobile doesn't seem to be liking the idea of him dialling out at the mo, so e's all cut off. I'll try to remember to mention it to him, but I wouldn't trust myself to remember by the time I get in tonight.
