tomorrow i go back up to manchester for five days for part two of CUBElab. i’ll be continuing to build on the works begun in week one - and possibly change them a bit too.
if you are in manchester this week please pop in and say hello. if not, drop by the CUBElab blog, have a look at what’s going on and leave a comment.
i dreamt that we had robbed bank. or a train.
we had our getaway all planned.
we had a big lorry full of loot that we were going to drive to a hanger, put all the stuff on a plane and fly away.
it all went wrong though.
the police were in hot pursuit (why is pursuit so hot?)
when we got to the hanger it wasn’t quite how i remembered it.
the plane was on the roof?
we crammed as much stuff into our rucksacks as we could manage and climbed up onto the gantry that ran along the wall.
the ganrty was very narrow with no railing.
to get to the ladder that led to the roof we had to cross the narrowest part.
there was no way we could do it with our bags, but we didn’t want to give up our loot.
so we sat there, five metres above the police and their sharp-shooter teams. the hanger filled with spinning lights.
went to see radiohead at victoria park last night. i took a few photos on my mobile.
it was excellent. they played everything from in rainbows and the rest of the set was kid a/amnesiac heavy - so lots of electronic beats and rhythms. surprises included no surprises (ahem), the bends and my iron lung. overall a great mix of songs from all albums except pablo honey, which is a shame. it would have been nice to hear you or blow out, perhaps. maybe next time?
it was great to see thom doing his twitchy dancing - he wore a fine pair of red trousers which unfortunately don’t show up in my pictures.
some images of survivalist so far.
