I meant to post a few days ago, but somehow time slipped by me. Went to Short Fuse on Wednesday. It was an unthemed night but the stories seemed to have a similar mood. The last pieece of the evening was by a writer called Mark Savage. It was called I will if I have to, an odd piece about words and numerology, based around counting the letters in sentences and one of the best stories I’ve heard read in a long time. On the way out of the Komedia, I was lucky enough to run into some of the Future Platforms crew, who were on their office party.
Friday night I went with Lou to watch CSS at the dome. The gig was amazing – the support bands, Metronomy and Joe Lean and the Jing, Jang, Jong were really good. CSS put a lot of work into the show – fake snow, balloons, coming onstage dressed as presents. Sadly the gig ended early when someone hit Lovefoxxx in the face with a shoe and the band walked at the end of the song. Something of a down ending to the night.
The rest of the weekend is being lived at a slow pre-Christmas pace. Saw Santa Claus yesterday afternoon. Last night I went to a party and chatted with some artist friends-of-friends visiting from the North. The house was on the top of Whitehawk Hill: great views, long walk home. Not much planned for today.
