Urbain Grandier the Witch: History, Literature and Film [Jan. 18th, 2018|01:40 pm]

Wednesday 17 January: Urbain Grandier the Witch: History, Literature and Film

Lovely evening in Treadwells, great talk on Urbain Grandier by Dr John Callow. The Devils of Loudun is one of this book that really marked me and started many of my interests when i was 19 (i recall making everyone read at Bibliogoth many years later) and of course i also adore the film. i was so lucky to see Ken Russell in Conversation with Mark Kermode back in 2004 at the NFT and see some of the deleted footage. Yesterday was great as it highlighted some aspects of the whole affair i had not thought about before and even more reasons why the film is such a great adaptation. On top of that Inkubus Sukkubus lyrics got mentioned..well Happy cecile

Enchanted evening at Talliston House [Jan. 18th, 2018|01:32 pm]

Sunday 14 January : Enchanted evening at Talliston House

What an amazing place we have just been visiting or transported to for our anniversary.
We sat in the snugg of a canadian log cabin , we had afternoon tea in a medieval Victorian tower, climbed into a Cambodian shrine in the attic , went to the loo in a norvegian bathroom , explored a haunted bedroom, futuristic japan ....The few photos I took last night at Talliston House, do not do it justice as each room has it is own time zone, century, style, smells, decor, story...best to look on their website or just go!!! we had own own private tour by its creator and it is such a fascinating and inspiring project, as well as yummy afternoon tea.
The lovely atmospheric lighting= too dark photos vs flash= kill the whole ambiance...

Really would recommend going as they do all sort of events and tours.
What a way to spent our anniversary

I have been a bit quiet since we returned, mainly because i am waiting for my photos from thailand to be recovered by a techyy friend, those who follow fb know the card got corrupted. Luckily i had post most on FB and i have audrey ones in case...but still not the same. So i will start proper blog about Thailand when i have processed them all.


Amazing time, we returned, i went to work for one day , caught flu and then stuck in bed ...finally after a few days of delirium and boredom i did managed to dragged my sorry body out of the house as it was Simon and I 10 years anniversary on Monday

Our main celebration was Thailand, and high tea at Talliston House (next post)

Saturday 16 December: Attrition, Bein-E & Prometheus And The Satyrs

This week has been busy with Xmas do's at work then on Saturday we went to see a few bands. I had not seen Attrition for ages , fan of Prometheus And The Satyrs and Bein -E were a new discovery, all in a venue i usually go dancing but that worked very well for gigs too. Also a good excuse to see a few friends before the xmas break. We didn't quite make it out to a new clubnight as planned but we were grateful when we had to get up at 8am today...

Sunday 10 December: Snow

It was cold when i returned after the gig around 1am, then all i heard was rain all night so i was a bit surprised when i woke up to so much pretty snow!!!!!!

Simn had quite an horrible drive back from his party, the roads were all jammed or closed, the tube had severed delays so we sadly decided notto go to the alt Bring and Buy and make a snowman instead in the garden

Marilyn Manson & Johnny Depp on stage at his gig [Dec. 12th, 2017|12:07 pm]

Saturday 9 December:Marilyn Manson & Johnny Depp on stage at his gig

 
Typical my 2 favorite bands in the world are playing the same night, but i do get to see Inkubus Sukkubus more often and well i have had the MM tickets for month.
Met up with Martin and Amanda for dinner and we then joined Howard and Yolande in Wembley...I was expecting long hours queuing in the cold but the security was so effective that night ..straight in (although like airplane security)
Crappy support band being a DK but we knew that so didn't go too early.
Marilyn Manson did a great show, i have to say for a man with his leg in a cast he did a hell of a good show. Awesome gothic wheelchair too. Was a bit short and ended a bit abruptly but fantastic nonetheless and well Johnny Depp joined him on stage Depp on stage playing guitar for Beautiful people and Dope show...so we were happy !!!!!!

Ready to be cold



Johnyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Skeleton Unicorn Tattoo [Dec. 11th, 2017|01:28 pm]

Thursday 7 December: Skeleton Unicorn Tattoo

I have been Unicorned !!!!! It didn't quite quite worked were i had originally planned to have it on my arm, so it moved to my ankle...Was reminded that i really do not like tattoos near my feet, they are so much more painful and i get annoying little twitch spams. So extra well done to Bonnie Baker for her beautiful artwork i shall jump around like a skeleton unicorn for the rest of the day
