I'm not gonna make a big post about WGT, suffice to say that it rocked and was well worth it.
If you haven't been, you should go. At least once...

I have put up a few pictures here which will probably mostly be of amusement to those who was there with me...

So, back from WGT.

It was good fun and I enjoyed it muchly.

I am, however, not going to read a weeks worth of LJ entries, so if something has happened that I should know about, please text/call/e-mail me about it.

Also, is anyone considering going to the Amphi Festival?
It looks pretty darned good...

I'm very close to convincing myself that I *need* to go...

Bands...

In Sweden...
It's fun
No snow :(

Myself and [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard was a complete set of mongs and combined forces to do my usual party trick and missed our flight Friday morning.
However, persistance was met with success when someone else did the same with the late flight and we managed to get two stand by seats. Victory. And a right royal financial shafting by Ryan Air and a cabbie which didn't get us to the airport in time. Oh well, that was a wasted £100 >_<

We went to the Pre-Party at Tech Noir which was quite good.
We walked in and [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard saw the quality of the women and almost started crying.
I saw the beer prices and almost started crying :]

But yeah, so far it's all good although all our electronics have run out of juice due to us not having brought any power converters and not yet having been able to find one to buy.

So no more texting/picture snapping from us.

And again...
Since I'm no good at writing long entries I thought I'd make this one in soundbite format.
[livejournal.com profile] flannelcat is a mastercook and if he ever offers to make food for you I'll suggest you say yes.
Kangaroo meat is very tasty. Definitely worth trying again.
[livejournal.com profile] gelflyng is very funny when she's trying to eat while a bit tipsy. She also doesn't take very well to being tickled :]
[livejournal.com profile] penguin_worships mother is very nice to talk to on the phone and apparently I have now become 'Mother Liaison Officer' and all calls from said mother will be forwarded to my mobile.
[livejournal.com profile] gothicbarbiecat can now expect a visit from me on the 10th of November. Tickets have been booked and everfing...
Tinitus is a go. Festival tickets and Plane tickets have been purchased. [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard, get that passport sorted out. You only have a bit over a month to get it sorted...
Good lord my bank account has been pillaged as if it was an English abbey back in the viking days...

As we all know the Starwars prequels sucked mighty wang. In a perfect world Joss Whedon would have made them and they would have been unsucky.
Serenity is one of the best sci-fi movies I have ever seen. I think it's even made it into my top 20 movie list of all times.
Joss Whedon is truly my new master...
And whether you like the movie or not, if you like sci-fi you must go and buy the Firefly DVD box set. Only £17.99 from HMV...

Garlic & Shots on Friday. Oh look at the collective surprise...
Not a big one. Just a meal and a few drinks. Definitely the last tube home...
Anyone coming along?
lpetersson: (Default)
Here...
And like the Wacken pictures it's all of them.
I'll get rid of the crap ones later at some point...
lpetersson: (Default)
Are here...
Unsorted and there are a lot of them...

I'll sort them better some other time...
lpetersson: (Default)
Has now been ordered.
Yay.

That's next august sorted out :)

...are available...
And they come with T-shirt, DVD and a gimmick if you order the X-Mas special which costs the same as the festival-only ticket...
I think I will order my ticket tomorrow...

Ok, I know that Wacken is 310 days away, but I'm already spaffing furiously.

Both Subway To Sally and In Extremo have confirmed their attendance.
As if there could be any doubt that I wanted to go :)

I suppose a quick weekend rundown is in order.
Friday I went to see The Thought Criminals at The Caernavon(sp?) Castle in Camden.
I thoroughly enjoyed them as they didn't seem to take themselves too seriously and the music was enjoyable. Good fun.
Left when the next band came on.
No matter how badly the lead singer wanted to be Anthony Kiedis they couldn't overcome the fact that they had no discernable talent.
And just cranking up the volume to headache inducing levels does not help either. And just as a headache was beginning to appear we ([livejournal.com profile] blakeshell + OH + My good self) left to go to Dance of The Dead.
As the venue was cleverly disguised and not signposted we managed to go past it twice and when we finally found it I had to go home... Hmmph.

Saturday was spent at work and then of to White Hart in Holborn to roll up new D&D characters.Nice pub but hideously expensive. I generally don't like paying over £3 for a pint.
Our great and just DM let us roll 7 ability scores and disregard the lowest. Amazingly all of us managed to roll really ow on the 7th roll.
Dammit. My dice are cursed. 10, 11, 12, 12 15 and 16 are reasonable stats I suppose. I'll definitely be a sorceror, but I haven't decided on my second class. Possibly Warmage, but we shall see. I'm currently researching...
Left to get to The Dev in time for a couple of drinks and then home to sleep and damn that was well needed.

Nightwish gig Sunday (With [livejournal.com profile] elfenkind). Yay. Paradise Lost opened and played a good metal set.
then Nightwish came on. They seem to get better each time I see them. This gig was probably just as good as their set at Wacken but at Wacken I was all the way up close which made it even better.
Chicken Samosa, tube home and sleep.
Now work. Boo to werk...

Damn I feel lazy today. Quiet there in the back :)

Tuesday afternoon I was given the important task of wandering the floors like a little lost bear and write down all the asset numbers/Desk Locations/model numbers of all the printers in the building.
I then had to put it into a spreadsheet...
I finally finished today.
I never knew that HP made so many different types of printers. Or that we have all of them.
Or at least that's how it feels.
I am of course now procrastinating as I should really go and fix some problems.

[profile] spikey_kris: Get that passport sorted or let me know if you're not coming to Sweden... I'll book my flight + the festival ticket this weekend at the latest. And I would prefer to book the hotel soonish...


[profile] long_haired_chris: I have the CD, I'll give it to [profile] spikey_kris when he comes down weekend after next...

I have decided that I'm going to Sweden for the Tinitus festival.
One day full of bleepy shit.
Groovy.

There is absolutely no way I can say no to seeing Die Krupps live. I have been waiting nearly a decade for this.
Excellent.

[livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard, make up your mind quickly.
We'll need to book a hotel quick quick...

O.M.F.G.

How good does this look?
Die Krupps
Rotersand
Apoptygma Berzerk
Combichrist
+ Several More...

[livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard and I are currently discussing whether to go.

Who's with us?
Flight = £50
Hotel = £70
Ticket = £40
Not too bad really...

There are a few pictures from M'era Luna here.
They're not mine, but some of us from [livejournal.com profile] camp_victory are in them.
Oh how wet we look :)

Arrgghhhhh

Well, I'm back and those bitches at BT had the temerity to disconnect my phoneline while I was away.
Grrr

And when I called them about it, they didn't have a clue as to why it had been done and they were very sorry.
Now that's all well and good, but I now haven't got an internet connection at home Arrgghhh.

So yeah, I haven't been checking e-mails since Thursday last week, and won't be able to check my private e-mail until in another 7 - 10 days when my connection should be working again.
Bloody annoying.

And my dad is visiting, so I probably won't be out and about partying this weekend.

I will try to do a Wacken/Berlin/M'era Luna write up at some point, but suffice to say that I have just had one of my best holidays ever. So many great bands, so many great people I just felt good all the time with no negativity or downward emotions
Does a little happy bear dance

Friday saw the arrival of the three scousers who immediately started drinking.
We met up at the wonderful Garlic & Shots for drinks and food. [livejournal.com profile] blakeshell showed up and we went to get food. As always, the food was gorgeous. Anyone who hasn't eaten there should, it's quite simply scrumptuous.

Saturday we popped up to Cyberdog in Camden and then back to my place to preen and prepare for Black Celebration.
As [livejournal.com profile] posthuman_angel and [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard takes longer to get ready than most women, we were rather late arriving at Islington. And since I forgot to check where the Carling Academy is, we got off at Highbury & Islington instead of Angel Station. As we walked down towards Angel we realised that we had no idea where it was or whether we could even see it from the main road. However, salvation was at hand in the shape of [livejournal.com profile] johnny_eol.
I spotted him from a distance and we saw him disappear into the Carling Academy. Success.
Inside we were greeted by a bouncy [livejournal.com profile] zenmeisterin who looked stunning as always despite, according to her, not making an effort...
The bands were enjoyable and Funker Vogt rocked. Alot.

Afterwards we quickly went home to get booze and swiftly went to Slimes. Slimes was good and I enjoyed it muchly. I think I may start going to Slimes a bit more often again. Saw lots of people and had lots of conversations which I have mostly forgotten again. Funny how the details from my nights at Slimes are usually hazy the next day.

Sunday was good too. [livejournal.com profile] spikey_bastard and [livejournal.com profile] posthuman_angel couldn't be bothered with Black celebration and went to The Dev instead. [livejournal.com profile] wuggy and I made our way to Islington and some very bouncy music. The bands were mostly good and Rotersand in particular stood out. They rocked immensely and were probably as good as Funker Vogt. It was good to be able to relax and chat with [livejournal.com profile] wuggy and [livejournal.com profile] zenmeisterin. I pimped M'era Luna to both and maybe they will join me in spreading victory in Germany.
Went to the Dev afterwards and had a last couple of beers before heading home for some serious sleeping.
Still tired from too much beer, and not enough sleep, but it was well worth it.
A glorious weekend filled with much honour and victory.

Damn I feel great. I feel absolutely fan-bloody-tastic.


  • Beergut is getting noticably smaller (No beer + Situps++)

  • I'm getting muscles again (Weights++)

  • The weather is fantastic (Lack of air-con--)

  • I'm actually studying for my certifications rather than just talking about studying :)

  • I have the best constitution on the planet (I could probably get SARS, AIDS, cancer and The Plague all at once and my body would fight it off)

  • My Starcraft skills are excellent (I have just had three games against the maximum number of computer opponents and they were soundly thrashed)

  • I am so confident in my quest to quit smoking that I've thrown out all my ash trays (Nicotine patches++)

  • My financial situation is the best it's ever been

  • I have tickets for M'era Luna, Infest and Whitby

  • I have even managed to find a pair of glasses that fit me (I have a funny shaped skull, so glasses have never really been a good option before)


Probably the only downside at the moment is that I'm stuck in Ye Olde Scummy Hellhole rather than being in London, but once I have a few more certifications, that should hopefully be rectifiable. And I don't care if I just made that word up :)

All in all I feel so good that I suspect I'm disqualified from being a goth ;)

If memory serves me right....
Met [livejournal.com profile] nailbug friday evening in the Swan and went back to my place. The rest of the weekend was spent more or less in bed watching DVDs and occassionally getting up for food. Went to Lidl where I found proper rye bread (Yay) and then went back and watched some more DVDs. Then went to work Monday. Nice and relaxing.

I'm fairly sure I did something else and I'm quite sure that I could write more, but I'm tired...

Mera Luna



Who's going?
And will you be camping?

And would those who are both going and camping be interested in pitching tent together?

I'm already in the process of arranging a camp with some other people I know, but the more the merrier...
