Well, after two months or so pushing the gig, it’s all over and done with and I’d like to thank the bands-Talulah Does The Hula, Pocket Billiards and SilhouettE for a great night. We had a good crowd,all three bands were class and I can’t thank  the people who helped promote it  and those that helped make things run smoothly enough. Over the past few weeks the gig was plugged in newspapers, magazines and  tons of websites and I was pleased that the acts got a decent amount of cash for their hard work.

Thanks to the people that came down and wished me a Happy Birthday too. It’ll all be remembered, and I owe you one.  Next month I helped out on the booking for the punk and metal night (Residual Effect, the Lobotomies and Gacy’s Threads on Oct 2) so come down and I’ll buy you a pint in return.

I’ve been lucky enough to do some things over the last seven years that I’ve been very proud of, but helping to put on Saturday’s show is an acheivement I won’t forget. Normal bloggy service will resume shortly (thanks to Aaron Abernethy  I now have a nifty address, in case you haven’t noticed) so in the meantime, onwards and upwards and up the fuckin’ Irons!

Browsing the web I saw a nice little poster on the Spring and Airbrake’s site advertising my gig on Aug 29 and I thought I’d put it up here too.

Happy Birthday Marvel!

11 08 2009

Today (August 11) marks the 70th anniversery of Marvel Comics. My first Marvel Comic was an issue of Transformers that my Ma bought for me to keep me occupied while my brother was at the dentist. Needless to say I loved it. Megatron and Rachet got fused together, Galvatron got his face blown off and went mental (as you do) and I even loved the back-up “Combat Colin and Semi-Autmatic Steve” strips as well as Grimlock answering the letters pages.

When I was 11 I bought an issue of the Punisher and that’s when my life-long passion for comics really kicked off. From there I picked up the Hulk, Avengers, Captain America, Thor and all the rest and while some of the company’s business decisions have pissed me off over the years, Marvel has given me some great memories (Peter David’s huge Hulk run) and some not so great ones (the time when they turned the Punisher black. What the fuck?). So tonight I’ll be raising a glass and wishing them a very happy birthday. Here’s to Marvel.

Iron Man 2 cheeky-ness

11 08 2009

This past two weeks I’ve been working myself harder than that bloke from the Lucazade Sport advert who makes you go 33% longer. In a bid to remind myself that not everything involving a computer equals hell itself, I stumbled across some sneaky Iron Man 2 footage while I was writing up my comics pages for AU. Needless to say this will be removed at some stage, but have a look while you can. It looks class.

EDIT-Annnnd sadly if you snoozed, you lose(d) as the footage has disappeared. Altogether now-booo000.
