Tonight I am going to watch Maya Deren's experimental film collection and try not to worry about the fact that the tiles for my exhibition piece have had oxides added this afternoon and should be getting their final firing later today. I also picked up a copy of Label Ombres "BlackLight ::: Cinematographic Experience". It was the first DVD I picked off the shelf-attracted, no doubt, by the manual typewriter font on the spine- and to my surprise features the lovely Frédéric D. Oberland of FareWell Poetry and The Rustle of The Stars (amongst many other projects), both with records due to be released later this year on Gizeh Records.

Last week was a busy one, filled with musical delights: Sleepingdog & Low in Sheffield & Manchester and Conquering Animal Sound supported by Ten in York. It was much fun & many tired bones ensued. Here you can watch a lovely video featuring Ten shot by Boo Said the Goose just last week, in a ramshackle antiques shop in Leeds.

Alongside gigs/project stress, we should (hopefully) be moving house in just over a week's time, meaning our bedroom is cluttered with boxes of beloved possessions and piles of books. My book collection has grown rather enormously recently due to our regular haunt, a nearby charity shop, selling off any 10 books for £1 (!!! and I bagged some real beauties, too) alas this means even more boxes to pack and drag across the city. Fingers crossed we get the place.
