Tuesday 6 November:The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

We went to see The Nutcracker and the Four Realms movie last night, what a visual feast. Sweet fairy tale story wise, easily forgetable but i had massive outfits envy and the sceneries made me smiles for a few hours.

Tuesday 6 November: Royal Albert Hall Archives

Very interesting visit to the Royal albert Hall Archives
Such fascinating history, i didn't realise it was built using an early version of kickstater :) We did a tour, got to see the royal box, the royal resting salon and private entry. Also went inside one of the big beautiful 12 seater boxes and on the balcony ( where i am more used to be when seeing a performance there) . Loved hearing tales of some of the diverse performances hosted there, i did not know they had seances and did one for Conan Doyle when he died. The Archives is currently hosting an exhibition on Suffragette as they did lots of of their meeting there. The Archives are very new in some sense and have a wonderful array of items from all the programs, signed books , furnitures, posters, odd pieces and priceless artworks. I have been there so often to see performances but never done a tour of the building or even been there in the daytime, there was some classical chidren gigs happening so no photo allowed in the auditorium but the place was hiving everywhere between regular tours, performers, workers and librarians

Saturday 3 November: Cats & Skulls

Cats supervising us whilst we doing some DIY in the garden. They did a good job as the shed is also once again organised





The door is open, no need to use the cat flap concept still evading them



That polystyrene skull got fabulous bubbly when I sprayed paint it , so I finally turned it into something to wear using lots of old bits of lace and jewellery.

Emergency Monkey [Nov. 8th, 2018|05:51 pm]

A new strange creature has been caged and now adoring the spare room wall at the weekend. Simon has this inconceivable idea that one day my beloved monkey; Egypt might disintegrate and then tragedy will incur, as I will never be able to sleep ever again. I grumbled but agreed for him to get this less stitched replacementin case of emergency and then this happen!!! Not sure to laugh or cry!!!

Friday 2 November: Alexandra Palace Fireworks

We have been living here for many years but have never been to one of our local big events as there was still some tickets for friday and the weather looked dry we decided to check it out

It was fun, a whole family area with some show, bonfire, funfair (did a little one) and we watch the circus. Amazing rope walker, light umbrella show and the big show. That was a fun firework to watch ,with Alexandra Palace in the back and fireworks over london :). A Guy Fawkes projection got blow up but the music was a bit naff .
Nice to have done it but unlikley to bother every year, still not as amazing as lewes .

Black celebration at the Forum [Oct. 31st, 2018|06:13 pm]

Sunday 28 October: Black celebration at the Forum

On Sunday, not quite awake we had to make our way to Black Celebration (terrible idea to have it on Halloween festivities weekend) but lots of bands I was interested to see and we wanted to support the first band Machine Rox. As made of friends and well they are into mermaids. Really enjoyed them






 

 

DKAG. Not sure at all, just noise from Slimelight DJs . Not my cup of tea. Sadly would have loved a cup of tea as it was freezing inside the forum





 

Sulpher. Great high-energy show but let down by not hearing his low singing, still very cool and raw. Bits were very MM/NIN.

 









Empathy Test. Not sure, nice voice but all very samey slow synchpop. Rushed before the end to grab dinner as sadly after 7pm we would not be let back in . Very annoying as the band I wanted to see most were next and dinner during MESh would have been perfect…








 

Suicide Commando. Missed the first few songs but whoaaa, even better than I recall…proper angry energy that make you bounce happily (despite full of curry laksa..the only time I got nearly warm I think) My band of the night…










 

Mesh. Even worse that I recall…the beany burn the beany hat. A crowd divider , many friends loved them , many like me were so bored and annoyed they were right between to of the most exciting bands that night…









 

The Young Gods. As amazing as I remember, but I still have the same issue with them I see them live and think amazing mix of laibach, art bands, prog…in French…love his movements on stage but I afterward I always forget about them and not something I ever think of listening to.

 








DAF let’s just say my legs were tired, my fitbit had broken the 40000 steps and we decided to watch him from the balcony. Not quite the same, especially to bounce to but he was good and realise I really liked a few of his songs I have on in the gym just had not put the two together.

A great, freezing, exhausting day of music.
