back from ATP HOLIDAYS.

not entirely broken. catalogue of injuries as follows (catalogue of fun and bands later):

  • hoarse and disappearing voice. blame whooping too enthusiastically. and belting of steinman karaoke at other times.

  • aching all over. possibly due to sleeping on sofa. or sleeping in all clothes, shoes and hair accessories. more likely due to foolish combination of katy and beach football at some ridiculous hour yesterday morning.

  • bruised knee. i am thinking this occurred whilst vaulting the front of stage barrier to boogie with raekwon and ghostface killah. brap!

  • aching coccyx. trains are bad, m'kay? especially if you sitting still and bolt upright for hours, petrified of sleepily squashing a lapdog next to you.

    *Takes deep breath*

    Here goes!

    This entry is likely to contain overexcited babbling along the lines of 'FLUMES!' 'Bring the NOISE!' 'HELL YEAH!' 'Drink through!' 'Straight through!' 'I've been really irritating...' )

    ****

    This is ridiculously long! I am making an editorial decision to put the rest of Saturday and Sunday in another entry. Blimey. tl;dr indeed!












    * In my family, this means you've won. Won what, I don't know, but it's always satisfying...
    ** "Hardest working man in rock and roll" apparently! I'm pretty sure this is true, seeing as he did seem to be in 75% of the bands on in some way or another.....!
    *** You all love me even though I'm REALLY annoying, don't you?
    **** Alone Again Or, plus that one I can sing to you if you like but the only lyric I can remember right now is "....street, yeah..... Tell me!

    Dear the internet, I have returned from ATP. The hangover hit around Reading (pesky Reading!), movement and coherent thought / speech became nigh on impossible. The urge to vomit was intense. I held on, through will alone. Got home, passed out for 3 hours curled tightly into a foetal position. AWAY WITH YOU VILE WORLD!

    ATP was freaking BRILLIANT. More on this when the shaking subsides. I am almost desirous of trying to get a ticket to ATP vs The Fans. Tempt me?

    Also, who remembers deletedgoth [livejournal.com profile] dumbgenius? He's back on the internets, hurrah!

    Not the most auspicious start to the day, heading for drilling and filling at the dentists. Especially when your hygienist tells you they “can’t be bothered with today” then mopes about and spends some time talking to the dentist (who has to be yelled at to get downstairs) about being up all night in tears. CONCENTRATE ON MY MOUTH!

    He asks if I want an injection or to try without. [AHEM. Always Say Yes To Free Drugs.*] Then manages to get half of it on my tongue.**

    At least this time he wasn’t drunk!

    Apart from that, all goes according to plan. 2 fillings, back next week for the final one. Staggered payment. I make him EARN his £240 if I’m honest; I’m a rubbish dental patient. For one so loud and gobby, I have a very small mouth, which can’t happily accommodate fingers, drills and suction at the same time. “Open wide!” he says, not realising I am. And my gag reflex is somewhat hyperactive with suction. Plus I keep forgetting to breathe. Good lord, how incompetent am I?!

    Last night to Herman Dune (via rendezvous, breadzilla, cheese and pints at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese) at that bit of a student union where they have Collide-A-Scope. The one that isn’t David*** isn’t there, and they aren’t as magical as they were at ATP last year. I suppose ‘discovering’ an amazing band with the first act you venture out for helps with the magic. And general ATP goodness. (Oooh! ATP kids! Physical tickets arrived in the post this morning! I did a little “squee”!) Anyway, yes, the band. Clearly the David Herman Dune songs are the ones I like best anyway****, so plus points for ace set list. And choice of cover versions. But something is missing. Still very good indeed, but not amazing.

    One thing I did discover last night is that I do have an actual bad back*****, causing me to have to sit down like an old woman 45minutes in. I think I might visit a chiropractor, anyone able to recommend one?

    ***

    Herman Dune, however, paled into insignificance due to the glorious song that came onto my iPod whilst walking over Blackfriars Bridge. I could not keep the glee (nor the giggles) from my face, I think many commuters thought I was a)high or b)laughing at them. And more joy, as [livejournal.com profile] lanarak is not only aware of it, but appreciates its worth! FANTASTIC lyrics under the cut, see if you can guess who it is. Then I’ll tell you what it sounds like. Don’t cheat, there’s at least 2 of you that’ll probably either know or be able to guess easily…..

    Excerpt of lyrics below! )

    Kudos and points to [livejournal.com profile] darkship for correctly identifying Meatloaf, from Bat III. In the Land of the Pigs (The Butcher is King). It is amazingly overblown, and somewhere between Gary le Strange and Iron Maiden. Excellent. In a highly dubious fashion.

    ***

    I did a stupid meme this morning that said I was Ani di Franco. Which is silly really, I don’t think I’ve actually (knowingly) ever heard her work.













    * Not a motto per se…..
    ** I still haven’t been able to get my stud back in! Stupid floppy mouth.
    *** Ivor? Ivan? Brian? Percy? WHATEVS. [Andre. Yes.]
    **** Good For No One is my favourite I think. That, or Baby Bigger.
    ***** Aside from my rotten shoulder girdle, which hasn't been right for years.
