The Null Device


Looks like NaNoWriMo is rolling around again in just under a month. (And no, I won't be participating; given that I'll spend part of November being rained on in Britain, for one.)

I was thinking that there should be something for less ambitious writers; call it PicoWriMo, if you will. The rules are: every day for a month you write a word and at the end you have a free-verse poem or a (very) short story.

On, and another thing: my cat turned 1 today. Happy birthday, Fantod.

Happy birthday!

What's happening in Britain? Is it just a holiday?

Basically. Visiting friends, travelling around, taking way too many digital photos, and probably raiding the second-hand record shops of London.

Excellent. Make sure to bring home plenty of records!

Hey I just noticed that Kraftwerk are playing at the Big Day Out next year. It's about $100 though. I almost think it's worth it; it'd be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Hmm, still debating though.. (I'm not really interested in any of the other bands playing there).

?! I can just see Kraftwerk playing in the Boiler Room to a bunch of technomooks wondering who the hell these guys are...

I'd be surprised if Kraftwerk don't do a solo gig at the Corner/the Prince of Wales/Revolver/Pony/somewhere.

Yeah. And you'll probably first hear about it a week after it happens.

What, you mean it won't be mentioned in Beat or InPress?

It better bloody well be; I'd rather go there than the Big Day Out! Or it at least better be advertised somewhere that you (acb) read so that you can pass it on to us. :)

I'm certainly going to keep my eyes and ears open for any extra gigs they might do though.
