Vampires

Following a particularly strenuous day in the office, Nic and I headed for noodles, then Arabic jazz by Majoon and beer at the Ritzy, then Fridge bars, then just said "fouk", and watched Blade Trinity until 2am: cool vampires kicking the shit out of each other, wearing cool clothes and sporting very cool weapons. Good craic!

Reminded me of being in Cuba with Gail, spending endless coach journeys watching Las Vampiras en Habana, with its barely disguised critique of blood-sucking capitalists mixed with lung-busting trumpet-driven son music. Genius.

  • Hah, I am logged in now, and because of you I have another blogger. I have forgotten my old blogger log in, of course.

    Anyway. Update more often, with details of this trip you took, and tell me if Norman Reedus is in Blade Trinity.

  • Err, no idea about that guy. Blade Trinity skated in the thin edge between absurdity and ueber-cool.

    New year was fun: no thoughts of work for two weeks, plus much eating, drinking, fooling in the snow, and falling on my arse whilst snowboarding!

    Also tried a bit of indoor climbing, which was knackering, but fun. Very good for Achievement-Monkeys like me, and not too bad for fitness/body shape either.

    But more via email...
