(I've tried patience)

Let's fill this town with artists

Well, the BFI are doing their bit on Monday. Good god.

Meanwhile tonight, everyone's favourite The Modern take Koko at the Camden Palace (just opposite Mornington Crescent tube station) by synthpop storm. I hope some of you will be there; unfortunately I can't make it, but you should.

Tomorrow, one of my mum's friends is having a glamorous civil partnership with his boyfriend of ten years or so. So hurray for that, I'll be there.

Presumably the opposite of "let's fill this town with artists" is "let's empty this town of people with no discernible talent", and therefore I suppose one should be cheered by the news of yet another Celebrity Big Brother rolling into view. Taken off the streets this year, among others : Jodie Marsh (does she actually have a home? or is she just shunted from one reality TV house to another), Dennis Rodman, Pete Burns (handbags at dawn there, I'm sure) and George Galloway. I'm sorry, I'll just say that again - George Bloody Galloway. For christ's sake, even Boris wouldn't stoop so low. What an insane little man.

Somewhat gratuitous use of New Favourite Icon Ever prompted by watching Velvet Goldmine all the way through for the first time in ages yesterday. I'm still thinking about that post, I'll probably write it over the weekend and put it up on Monday. Collapse )
