Sluggish waking. I think the long weekend made me allergic to mornings. An uninspiring day at work. Same old drill. Redefined modern theatre before lunch. Modern theatre is now defined as 2002-2009. Slept deeply all the way home, but then stayed up til three hacking through the undergrowth of my desk. Also found time, somewhere, to turn the wii on for a quick round of Mario while waiting for dinner to cook. First time it has seen power in months.

Album of the day was Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion. MNMC had told me that this was the bestest album in the whole world, so I was already set up for a disappointment. It's good. Electronic and poppy and arty, at times sounding somewhere between the beatles and the pet shop boys. It just didn't grab me and shake me, though I found myself humming the tunes for a good few hours afterwards.

Play of the day was Sophocles trans. Owen McCafferty - Antigone. I've read pitifully little of the greeks and find it difficult to thread it all together. This is the continuing story of the oedipus family and their ups and downs and downs and downs. It's true that tragedy really is in the inevitability. It's painful to watch Creon throw his kingdom away on stubbornness. Translation is very accessible, although I wish he'd put in capital letters and be consistent with the swearing.

Hullo. Is this of the interest to you? Am sure folk were most insistent I see them in Edinburgh, a thing I entirely failed to act upon. (Mostly for Eros McClashington reasonage.) Residual gig-guilt remains; must be assuaged.
