Now back from the aforementioned Vampires Rock!.
Was very good: very loud, great musicianship, lots of humour, even when there were power issues. The crowd, though not the biggest I've ever seen, were clearly having a great time. Lots of repeat offenders.
Will go again.
The only thing that spoiled it a little was the rude 'lady' in the Car Park afterwards... and the ginormous Car Park bill...
Had a nice surprise on Friday when I found I'd won tickets for a suitably Halloween concert: Vampires Rock!
Think it'll be fun, or incredibly cheesy.
Youngest Hobbit is quite keen though.
As for reading: as mentioned before, The Weird is keeping me greatly amused: it's title tells you the gist. Some of it I like a lot, some of it is just unsettlingly...weird.

Hello Earth. I was here briefly earlier as I swung by on a long elliptical orbit but now back for a while. It's good to find I have a blog to write in. Fantastic!
I've joined this site/forum for a couple of reasons
- to help get my head back into the sci-fi/fantasy world so I can generate enough energy and momentum to charge into writing a sequel
- give me a reason to procrastinate so I don't need to face into writing a sequel.
Life is complicated.
The Power of Fantasy.
Without our imagination we would be nowhere. Literally. At best dead. Gone the way of the Neanderthals. Evolutionary they had fulfilled all the right functions, ticked all the right rocks, carved all the right pieces of flint, spears, knowledge of herbs, perfected the hunt. And still died out. A people without a past or a future.
The big difference. An awareness of the future. So amorphous, even vaguer and of course a purely conceptualisation
