Not in Bradford..

... which is a good thing as I don’t very much like the place. But I like Infest and am missing (a little bit) not being there.

Black Plastic was good, even though a lot of the music would not be perhaps what I would choose to listen. I did dance a lot and had fun... got hypnotised by ‘A Scanner Darkly’ silently unfolding on a wall above... haven’t seen the film (or maybe should now say ‘haven’t seen the film properly’ -and have not heard it) and I think I must. There was a lot tht I don’t remember from the book. The study on alienation and perception of reality was strangely apposite -we’re not talking about the drug culture references here, mind you, this is a family program... anyway, I should watch the movie and, perhaps, read the book again. The only problem I had was that Keanu Reeves in a film whose main topic (or one of them) is the perception of reality, inevitably makes you think of Neo, even if he’s semi-cartoonised and turned into an unshaven semi-drifter...

In any case, it was a good night. All kudos to suicideally and exilontamer for organising it.

Is there anything happening tonight?
