Celebrations, good times
A horse walks into a bar. ‘Why the long face?’, the bartender asks.
No long faces today beside Tessa’s puppy-eyed face. It slipped my mind but Gerlin reminded me that today was the 2nd anniversary of Neon Enlightenment. That called for a celebration and Darwin Deez has a very, very fine show for that. Cheerful songs with dance intermezzos. They’ll be back in Belgium to play at Pukkelpop festival.
Before the show we had an improvised interview with Darwin. Gerlin received a call a couple of hours earlier so there wasn’t time for a decent interview. What was supposed to be an ‘introductory interview’ turned into a conversation about Dawson’s Creek, a cute German girl at Rough Trade and watching porn.
After the show the sound guy at the Botanique put on the Fantasy Black Channel album by Late of the Pier. An ocassion for Hermine & Phara to absolutely lose it. It so happened that the very first post on Neon Enlightenment two years ago was about that same Late of the Pier. Golly gee!
At the end of the evening I was smart enought to take an analogue picture with the lens cap still on and after that I couldn’t take another picture so I assumed I was at the end of my film roll. Only when I arrived home I realized I had been turning the wheel in the wrong direction. I’ve still got a good 15 pictures left but no evidence of Eno’s Ace Adventure hairdo. Thumbs up for stupidity!
And now I really should get some sleep. I hardly had any sleep last night and I have stupid dreams all of the time, so if I want to get rid of my cold I’ll have to hug those sheets more often. I’m going to have a snooze now and I’ll be dreaming of Phara, Gerlin, Hermine, Jarri, Tessa, Eno & Elmo. Hmm, perhaps preferably no dreams of those last two.
