Red 'Lex's pitchers from Friday are here.
After popping out for a quick look at the lights - fainter than 18 months ago (from here, at least) but visible - I left a message with CJ about hitting a pub. When he got back to me he was in a very definite frame of mind, and I ended up agreeing to meet him and Diana down at The Pond, in Leith. One very quick taxi ride later I was there, but they weren't for about another ten minutes (I'd made very good time). We stayed there until closing (it's a very nice little pub with fishtanks, in case you've not been there - recommended) and then decamped back to Diana's and stayed up drinking until after dawn. We didn't crash until between eight and ten, I think. Saturday was therefore rather wiped out, but I did watch Mars Attacks again for the first time in ages, so it wasn't a total loss. There were a couple of interesting things in the papers, but I'll drop you some links later .
The other band I have to get tickets for, as well as the ones I mentioned before : Giant Sand. I have some interest in refilling the spare room, also. Life moves on.

After the election, we track back from ballot papers to the electoral register using the paper serial numbers, round up all the UKIP voters in a field and

Annoyingly, it turns out that the company (GetLive) doing the CDs and DVDs of last night's concerts are an arm of ClearChannel, who as we all know are the spawn of Satan.
