Just Jotting...

Feeling melancholy today for obvious reasons. Lando C has headed into Derby to watch a couple of local bands but I'm not feeling up for public displays of affection right now.

The night before last we went to see Brendan Benson at the Rescue Rooms. So here's a guy with talent, who writes beautifully crafted songs and genuine lyrics. But did he ever lack presence on stage? I was hoping for him to rock out in a Ben Folds or Ben Kweller type manner but there was nothing. No smiling, no laughing and certainly no engagement with the crowd. Just vacant possession.

Came across this wonderful creative piece about Intelligent Design in the The New Yorker Shouts & Murmurs section (courtesy of blimp).

On Sunday we went to see Serenity. It was everything Star Wars Episode I and II should have been. I love Sci-Fi.

Last Thursday, I saw a motorcyclist go over the handle-bars of his moving bike after his wheel hit a grease-patch on the road. He was coming the other way and landed a few metres from my car door, head first. Luckily he got up after a few seconds and then upchucked a couple of times. Close one.
