    What gig didn't you go to last night?

    Yup, it was deadly. More electronic and less proggy than I expected, based on Steve Davis and Kavus Torabi's DJ sets

    What gig didn't you go to last night?

    Was too sick to go to Imperial Wax on Wednesday. But thought it was Thursday, so posted up everywhere to see if somebody wanted my ticket for free, was wondering why nobody wanted it. Was it good?

    What gig did you go to last night?

    Cheesy yes, but not necessarily shite, there are some pop gems in the John Hughes soundtrack years....

    What Book Did You Read Last Night???

    Every year I read A Book I Should Have Read By Now, this year's is Moby Dick. I'm on page 224 or 536. It's a struggle at times, I ain't gonna lie - starts off really readable and atmospheric, then he goes off on weird tangents about the different types of whales, and the cultural significance of...

    What gig did you go to last night?

    The cheese factor was higher than I expected (had kind of forgotten about the John Hughes soundtrack years) but it was highly enjoyable cheese.

    Jaysus cycling!

    Yup, it's actually snapped now, gotta bring it to the bike shop (in fairness my bike is about 12 years old and this is the first time I've had to get anything done to it other than a service)

    Jaysus cycling!

    Cycling hive mind - one of my wheel spokes has snapped out of place. I stuck it back in but it pinged itself out again. Can I glue it in? What kind of glue?

    What movie did you watch last night?

    I saw Joker last night - really enjoyed it but felt like a bad person for enjoying it so much. Because it *does* glorify the lone, disenfranchised gunman, and it does demonise the mentally ill.... but having said that it also illustrates (a very extreme version of) what happens when you cut...

    I saw a thing in the garden

    Make sure you don't give him cow's milk. They're very fond of it but it makes them ill (a bit like meself).

    Minor complaints thread

    Check with the venue in case there are returns. If that fails, make a sign saying "ticket needed, face value please" and stand outside the venue, patrol the nearest pubs, has worked for me loads of times.

    We still haven't had any advance volunteers, I'm hoping yiz are all going to step up on the night.... in the meantime here's a taster of some other MES-es from a previous gig to inspire you:

    Recently Purchased

    Is music memorabilia allowed on this thread? If so, could somebody tell me how much they paid for Stereolab mugs at the gig in May? I couldn't afford one then but just bought one online 'cause I can now. Probably for three times the price.
