Well, hello Livejournal, it's been a while.

I spent last Saturday shooting the Belfast Gay Pride parade when, for a few glorious hours, Belfast was awash with glitter, colour and style.

Below are just a few of my favourite shots: I was in photo heaven and have many pictures, so do have a look at the full set if you want to see more.

A couple of weeks ago I went down to Duke Special's in-store at the newly reopened Head Records in Belfast: I've been really into his voice and songs since I saw The View special he did with Neil Hannon a couple of years ago. This was my first chance to see him in person, though, and it was wonderful: he played a short but perfect selection of songs, and he looked like this:

Due to my stubborn refusal to have a TV in the flat, I headed down to the City Hall on Friday to watch the big-screen broadcast of the Olympics opening ceremony. In public was the best way to appreciate the many funny, WTF, and moving moments: I definitely enjoyed the whole thing better than if I'd been watching it at home. Lots of wonders to see before the show started, too. Acrobats, fire throwers, drummers and dancers on the lawn.

I was a wing in heaven blue
Soared over the ocean
Soared over Spain
and I was free
needed nobody
it was beautiful
it was beautiful


I would have been there

I just received my first book through paperbackswap.com - that has to be some kind of record? I am thrilled to report that it is entirely jam-free and even smells quite fresh!

Have any of you used www.paperbackswap.com? Is it worthwhile - and what is the catch (if there is one)?

I first saw the Dresden Dolls thanks to Patti Smith having them as guests at her Meltdown, so it was pretty appropriate to see Amanda and Brian after her traditional New Year's Eve show.

I made this to cheer myself up - it seems I throw my camera at colour any chance I get.

Just a couple of HUMANWINE (all capitals, all the time) from last night. I went for the Brian Viglione cameo, but it was Holly who stole my heart. They're touring for a few more weeks: check here for details because they rock!
It's Brechtian piracy!Collapse )

See here...

Oh my, some music to knock you down, shake you up, seize your crooked souls and french-kiss your ear drums until you repent. Oh, believe me, tonight was a sweet, sweet surrender: like when I first saw the Dresden Dolls and the universe tipped sideways.

Only with strange cowboys.
