Tonight's Electric Ballroom...



* A robinbloke
* A faerierhona
* Excellent music
* Phrases such as "Dead now" and "I'll never dance again", immediately followed by Rex putting on something it is impossible not to dance to
* Drunken idiots elbowing me in the arm, kicking me in the shins and spilling beer on my boots
* A spare pair of comfortable shoes. Must remember to do this more often
* Dancing. Lots and lots and lots of dancing
* 'Sin' by Nine Inch Nails, 'Gorgeous' by Turbulent Soundscape, and the unexpected gem of the night ('Discotheque Necronomicon' in this case)
* The Fear

Sadly missed from the essentials for a good night at the Ballroom :
* A dennyd
* Anyone doing poi
* Anyone at all for the first hour or so. I am not kidding - they played 'This Corrosion' and there were three people on the dancefloor
* Avon, my ecstasy-morris-dancing London club mascot
* The Spacefrog mix of 'Headhunter' by Front 242

The Fear was provided by a large man in a small PVC dress, red laddered tights, and makeup that I can only describe as the horrible collision of a clown and Humpty Dumpty.
The Fear was also provided by proof positive of the existence of a Kitty Factory. Previously at the Ballroom I have seen a man to whom I have referred as "That's what Kitty will look like in ten years' time; fear him." Tonight, faerierhona and I totally agreed that we had happened upon what Kitty would have looked like ten years *ago*. If he could dance. And had cyber hair.

Anyway, I am very very very very tired. So, bed.

Thank you robinbloke, it was a brilliant night.

    So I was just thinking, ugh, I'm too crazy to post another song, why would I even bother anyway, when I was suddenly reminded of a track I had on Now…

    You know when everyone is going crazy about a book, or a film, or a band, and you just get sick to death of even seeing it mentioned, even by people…

    Well, clearly I'm not going to manage to post a song every day, because for the last...what is it, like, six? I have kept trying and then deciding…
