Cutting out the middle man

Coffee grinder laybacks.

That is all.

Happy Valentines Day!

Okay... so it is a bit of a commercial entity now, but it's still nice to stop and think of the ones you love. Not in an overcrowded go out to dinner like cattle kind of way, but in a little gesture kind of way. Thankyou Mz DestructoMeg! I don't think anyone has actually given me flower(s) before, and it was very sweet :-)

Not sure I entirely understand why, but it was a really cool thing to do. Maybe because it was so totally unexpected? Anyway.... I'll stop blubbering before this blog gets coated with mush.

Iron Maiden? Excellent!

Well I liked it. Nothing like 3 lead guitars. Yes they had Adrian Smith, Yanick Gers and Dave Murray. Nicko on drums, and the other two usual suspects. Freakin awesome. I still await the power of the internet to provide me with more images of the gig. Rest assured there was much fireworks, lots of giant flames, a rather large cyborg Eddie and plenty of buffoonery. They played for 2 hours. Missed the first support act (Steve Harris' daughter Lauren) since she must have been on stage for all of 5 minutes. We got in at 8:30, she was supposed to start at 8, and the 2nd support act (Behind Crimson Eyes) was abusing the crowd and winding up. Anyway... if Maiden are in the area again, I'm there.

Last weekend was Cat Empire, Beautiful Girls and Blue King Brown out at Kippax Lake. Bit of a change of gears from that gig to this one. That one was outdoorsy mini festival, and also a blast but very different. And also had trouble supplying enough beer to the masses. But there was plenty of food and stacks of good music. Coffee... hmm... less good.
