A pretty cool thing Isle of Man newspapers has done a couple of times. A slideshow of photos accompanied by the band's music and an interview.

Obviously this one's a hell of a lot cooler than the others, 'cause this one is Postcode.

(And at some point I might post my photos from the album launch, you know after I post the ones from Canada and all the weirdo ones and so on and so on.)

(Bonus points if you spot me, that was somewhat unexpected!)

Last weekend I went to Liverpool with Postcode to see them play the cavern. The weekend went something like this: )

Yesterday I bought myself a dslr. This one to be precise. Its shiny and lovely. I(I bought it in the shop rather than online because I wanted to be sure to have it for Earlfest on friday).

So last night Dan gave me a lift to Yamsey (Ramsey is prostetuting itself and has sold its sole, and indeed name to Yamaha for TT) to see The Chris Flood Band to try it out. I'd forgotten how scary it is to go to a gig where the only people you know are in the band. I felt very out of place. TCFB where very good though. Shame to have missed Goldblade at the Traf though.

Friday was Vive Le Rock. Got into work early and worked through lunch in order to get to see Postcode. Who were ace. Sounded great and looked very at home on the big stage. Stonechase were lots of fun. I particularly liked Goldbalde, and UK Subs we great too.

Today is Mad Sunday, and its raining. Great.

weirdo played last night *g* This makes me so very, very happy.

(I think the amount of jumping around I was doing may be why Martin asked if I'd been drinking)

To add
They played two and a half songs. I took 47 photos. Oops.

Yesterday I spent around three and a half hours sorting through thousands of address albels removing any with 'wonky' addresses that couldn't be sent. Then going through a load of pieces of paper doing the same thing. Then sorting out a load of cheques looking for any that weren't to be sent out. Today I get to sort out all the 'specials' that weren't to be sent out.

But its all ok, 'cause weirdo are going to be back! yay! joy!

Had a random holiday day today. For no other reason than work has been getting to me a bit recently. Went to Mikie's birthday bash last night. The brilliant Postcode (see here for a review of their accidental first gig) played. As did the lovely Stoliday. Both were great. Although during Postcode's set I was worrying about [ profile] niceandlovely who is suffering badly from cold/flu. She was singing with Stoliday too, but my worry had transferred to Martin, who looked in large amounts of pain and had turned a worrying shade of grey because his shoulder was hurting so much. As usual I took photos. At some point I will finish sorting the large amount of pictures living in my computer and post some. Today I watched most of Withnail and I with my mum, saw a lovely zebra print top in En Finn, went to lunch with my friend Donna, wandered home along the beach (all lovely all I could hear was the sea and weirdo, which I was listening to repeatedly, went and wandered round the beach by Port Jack chippy while listening to werido some more, eat lots of buttons, listened to Zebracore and bummed around a bit. Hopefully this will mean that on monday I'm less stressed and not relying on emailing people to keep me sane.

So tired. But Stoliday are on the radio, so I'm up. Who let Trev on the radio? It scares me. And is our Martin the one with lights gaffer taped to his skull? And why?

These and more questions must be answered.

I hope you had a camera!

Please stop talking about Stoliday/Flood orgies.

Are they finished now? I'm confused

Oooo Joni Mitchell! Yay! I love this song.

*Wants to hear the Christmas song.*

Can I go to bed now?

Sone nights out end up being good in unexpected ways.

On saturday I went to the Traf with Mr Gifted to meet Dan.

At about 9.30 Dan decided it would be a great idea to have an acoustic night so he and Andy weent to pick up a guitar.

Mini acoustic night was great. Some of the audience (me included, obviously) was sitting on the stage. Dan sang some Okkervil. We got Dan to sing Breathe (after he asked me what had happened last time he sang Breathe, sometimes its great being sober wihle everyone else is drunk and therefore able to remember things). Andy played a little bit of Super Massive Black Hole, to which Dan sang about Badgers :) Andy and Dan dueted on Better Smile and Diane. It was great.

And I had my camera.

Edited to add:
Andy and Dan sang Green! Dan was doing Sayle impressions! Remembering this made my afternoon

For years no-one has said anything to me about being Kelly from the Isle of Man. Until yesterday when two clients both commented on it.

Went to The Office last night. Twas a good night. Stoliday were lovely. Very glad I made the effort to come out to see them. I could have got better pictures if I'd bothered moving from my seat. The chairs were so comfy though! Beek were their usual funny and slightly disturbing selves. I had a moment of panic when Chris was deciding which song to play and announced 'this is for Kelly', luckily it was Prozac Kitten. Noshie, Merlot andFlood were all highly enjoyable too.

I paid for my late night this morning thoguh, I was absolutely knackered. And then I remember why I hardly ever take pro plus, it makes me feel a little bit loopy! Got loads of work done today, so maybe its a good thing.
