People say life is the thing, but I prefer reading*
 

In which the phrase 'weeny genius' is used, to debatable effect

Radiohead last night were fab. They played lots of songs from Hail To The Thief and OK Computer and one or two from The Bends (including Creep, which Fiance was very excited about as they didn't play that the last time we saw them at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange). I was slightly disappointed with some of their newer material though, but they do tend to have quite long instrumentals at their live shows (which kind of bores me anyway, but I was also quite cold and needing a pee), so I'm going to reserve judgement until I hear the new album.

We also got to go to the aftershow party, which is always exciting. It was slightly less glam than I expected, being that it was in the staff canteen at Meadowbank Stadium, but still, I was in the same room as the band so I'm not complaining! Thom Yorke is weeny, but he's a weeny genius so that's ok.

It turns out that the guy who I thought was clambering around in the rigging is actually a fancy-pants boss man now, and is a globe-trotting lucky bastard. Dublin today, Paris tomorrow, two weeks off, then Hong Kong and back to somewhere-in-Europe.

I wonder if he needs a PA....
