Back from evening one of Dark City.  Tad Goth/Eighties floor was pretty good, Ascenscion/Bleep floor also good fun.  I managed to dance to a variety of cool music with women of varying beauty (varying, in this case, from 9.78 to 9.94 out of 10), all of whom somehow managed to resist my whiles, so i get the double bed to myself tonight. Bonus!

And we finished up with Utah Saints (Something Good) and Apoptygma Berzerk (Love Never Dies).  If there's a better ending to a night than Orff I don't know what it might be. Now off to bed.  I'm gaming tomorrow from 2-6/7 and then off to seem more bands, culminating with The Mission.

Still not sure about Sunday - VNV nation are playing, but I'm not sure if I want to be that late, as work's going to be fairly intensive on Monday.


The thought that woke me (briefly) at 8am was "Ack! 'wiles' was spelled wrong in my post last night!"

I have no idea why my subconscious thought that was important at 8am, but thankfully it let me go back to sleep until 11:30.

Cool uses of technology

I was coming home in a cab from LGA in the pouring rain a few months ago, and sliding through a pool of water, we rear-ended the cab ahead of us. Both drivers got out, furious, and, before saying a word to one another, took out their phones and photographed each other's license plates.
It was the first use of a camera phone I'd seen that wasn't just for those "Hey I'm drinking a margarita" snapshots, and it convinced me that the unexpected uses of these things were going to be much more interesting than anything Nokia has dreamed of.
