It seems I've not properly updated for a couple of weeks, so I should probably do that, claim I've not forgotten the Drabbles I owe people and play catch-up before I completely forget what has happened.

Since the last proper update, which seemed to invovle some stupid hobby that involves running across hills in the rain, I have, for the most part, been busy at work. This is in itself reasonably enjoyable - as while my lack of work is often a bit of a joke - in practice I have times of "not busy" and times of "insanely busy". In an ideal world everything would be much more consistent and relaxed, but the world we live in is not ideal.

I'd planned to do an update before last weekend before going to dark_city_edinb, but completely failed - other than to whore some gig photos - but then that's kinda what this journal seems to be about. I do have more coherent thoughts - I just can't ever remember them the morning after.

Dark City, 3 nights of clubbing and bands in Edinburgh was great fun. Quite small scale but good natured, friendly and had some stonking bands. My favourite has to be Soman - even though paradoxically they were one of the worst to photograph. Other highlihgts were XPQ-21 and of course Combichrist. There were these couple of goths who seemed to be at the wrong festival but they were engaging enough. Though probably not enough that they can be forgiven the photoshop crimes on their website.

So I went, I took photos, I spoke to at least one new person (albeit briefly) and even danced. What more can anyone ask for?

This week so far has been panic to try and do four days work in two days - as in a few hourse I'm off to Leipzig. I'm part excited and part terrified, but that's normal yes?

    This excites me. Not because I'm on GNER (which I don't do a lot) but because it has Free WiFi. And even better than that, it seems to be working.…
