....cos there's a million ways to be, you know that there are.....
i was reminded (if i even needed reminding) of the brilliance of Hal Ashby's unconventional love story Harold + Maude when i went to see it at the NFT last friday and after the movie was screened Texan-born, Essex-raised Lightspeed Champion (previously of Test Icicles) performed the soundtrack (by Cat Stevens). sadly i wasn't able to hang around late enough to listen but i'm sure it was fabulous.
perfect movie - the ability to make me crack up laughing one minute and bring a tear to the eye the next - perfect antidote to the working week. tho i'm secretly relieved every time that the "love scene" remained on the cutting room floor (nothing against cougars, but i'm obviously still a little prudish...)
recently attended the Alcoholic Architecture event put together by those mad scientists at Bompas + Parr....definitely on a par with last year's jelly banquet...and inhaling gin through an industrial sized humidifier is definitely the best way to imbibe. standing in a gin-cloud-filled room with several other giggly people all dressed in white (custody) suites....giggling and inhaling madly....hilarious...and delicious....
