Security: Public
I've just spent a good half hour deliberately procrastinating from writing anything here. Didn't get a minifesto up last night and haven't recorded one today and doubt I will. Feel like all my self-imposed deadlines, designed to make me feel like I'm achieving something, are backfiring and making me feel a fool and a failure.

On the other hand, the Fitkin band were phenomenal. Highlights include Joby Burgess playing the spring and frying pan for Vamp and the two pieces inspired by the Collatz conjecture (3n+1 and hotpo).

Tuesday brought me to the Alternative Comedy Memorial Society (incorporating The Captain Planet Repertory Theatre Company). It was a failure, a noble failure. I got to eat 6 fromage frais. I turned them into Frubes! Poor Alan the Pinata. That doesn't make any sense, I know, but neither did the night. Thoroughly joyful.

Yesterday I read Stinkfoot by Vivian Stanshall and listened to Pet My Kitty by Jill Sharpe.

Today I've been listening to C'mon by Low and reading Polar Bears by Mark Haddon.

I think I'm going to do a big review post on Monday and spend the weekend not worrying about it. Minifestos will appear when they appear.

Maybe you could do a minifesto about the back-firingness of self imposed deadlines, and another about the annoyance of having to come up with minifestos! ;-)
