Artistic Merit

I heard the sounds of laughter and sellotape...

...Good thing the room was unoccupied...

Mute Math

Tonight I went to a long anticipated Mute Math gig at the Bar Academy in Islington. It was great to meet up with some friends whom I had not seen in a while.

The support act was OK, they were very young and seemed to lack confidence on stage. Not so Paul Meany, the lead of Mute Math. His repetoire included standing on his piano, crowd surfing, diving across the stage and hand stands on the piano. Not to mention the Keytar.
The drummer was wild, at one point he dropped a stick, so finished the song using his hand. Despite duct taping, he still seemed in danger of losing his headphones. The band are highly creative, using synthesisers along with traditional rock elements, and at one point 3 of the band were drumming on all manner of objects whilst the fourth used his pedal set to amazing effect.

A great night out. I would recommend them to any fans of alt rock, and the live experience is just something else.

Some Changes

I've been fiddling, cos I can't sleep, and have made some changes.

You'll have noticed the colour is now Black, I hope it's not too difficult to read. I have been meaning to change the template for ages.

There's also a link at the side to another page which gives some details about me. Another thing on my list to do.

Should go to sleep now.

Friday, I went for a scenic drive, which was cut
short due to miserable drizzly weather. I did, however, make it as far as Bwlchgwyn, which has the honour of being the highest village in Wales. I stopped to take a couple of pics, but it was a bit misty.

I found a new friend whilst I was there. He wasn't much for conversation though.

Been a while

As one avid viewer kindly pointed out, I've been a little lacking on the updates.

The reasons are 3 fold:

I was very busy for a couple of weeks at the end of Jan.

Following that, I've been ill, had 2 really nasty viruses in 3 weeks.

Thirdly, and because of the above, I've not had much to say.

I'm at home at the moment, a brief visit to coincide with the 14th Feb, we're not celebrating it, but going to see Blood Diamond instead. As an aside, we've recently marked 6 months together, seems to have passed in a moment.

I'm planning to do a couple more scenic drives, must take a camera. Then you'll all stop moaning.
