Immersive theatre. What does that mean? All I knew going in was that it meant a lot of walking, mandatory coat check ('nothing hanging off your body', said the polite but insistent ushers) and an ID inspection at the entrance queue. The rest was a weird but thrilling surprise.

HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!



I first celebrated Canada Day in London, although I had no idea that the 'beavertails' I loved to snack on while I was living in Manila were traditional Canadian munchies. This year they have Trafalgar Cup Hockey playoffs! I wish I were there!!!

Go check out more Canadian goodness over at [livejournal.com profile] beatonna's wonderful comic Hark! A Vagrant, which I reread every several months.

Finally, several weeks late...talking about Comica! Sorry about that guys, wayyyy too much drama has been happening lately. (And also I've gotten addicted to Disney's The Weekenders, possibly as another way to drown my sorrows stress.)

I am so tired.

Suffice it to say that the Himself event was so satisfying and fun, even if it did briefly feel like my high school prom all over again, in that I was kept busy paying attention to other people while the object of my attention was swarmed by cheerleaders. (Or in this case hot Goth girls and fans who were far more intelligent and interesting, and far less busy.) And that when he did get round to the staff, and was uniformly warm and kind even when he was obviously exhausted, I once again made an ass of myself and told him his Heliogabalus was hot, at which point he snorted with laughter and I burned all the way up to my hairline. I am so, so stupid. Honestly. But I enjoyed myself infinitely better than I did at my prom, I can tell you. And I got to run for and bring him his tea, and I paid for it with my own money, which is more than I can say for the rest of the audience! ♥

Here are some of the best highlights. Dave, Roz and Jailbait Batman )

JOHN CLEESE was in the store today. JOHN CLEESE. I talked to JOHN CLEESE. JOHN CLEESE OMG.

Damn you, Blackwell, and your no-autographs-at-work policy. DAMN YOU.

Saw the Jamie Hewlett/Damon Albarn/Chen Shi-Zheng Monkey opera last Friday. It was my first time in the Royal Opera House!!! Being clueless and late, I got one of the last few tickets, restricted view, and decided to turn up 2 hours before the show to see if any better seats became available. Even the tortuous queuing process was somehow exhilarating--I met a lively old lady who had been going to the ROH for over 40 years, and a TV crew filming the crowds pulled her out to talk about herself a bit. I did end up getting an upgrade in the end--from 4th tier to the Stalls Circle!

Oh my god, it was so amazing. Read the Independent and Guardian reviews for full accolades. I had to resist the urge to scream like a teenage girl when Tripitaka pulled Albarn and Hewlett out on stage.

Next Friday the Royal Ballet of China is performing...Raise the Red Lantern. The week after that another famous Chinese troupe is doing an acrobatic version of Swan Lake. Oh my goodness...

I need a "OMG I am such a f*cking fangirl" icon...

Sci-Fi London was SO AWESOME.

Check out the pics on the Flickr site...Stormtroopers galore, Alien and Predator slash, plus Mel Brooks, China Mieville, Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden and a Python or two...

Oh, and someone got caught reading on the job, heheh. I managed to read two of the AC Clarke shortlisters (The Raw Shark Texts and The H-Bomb Girl), as well as some of Kim Stanley Robinson's Red Mars. The rest of the festival was spent meeting fellow nerds, watching movies, cosplaying and messing about on the Manga Wall! Oh and grabbing ALL THE FREE STUFF. Made off with several DVDs of Ghost in the Shell SAC, Mushishi 2 (I have vol 1), Chobits 1, Duelist, the Ranma movies and Supernatural Season 1 part 1!

Oh my God the anime all-nighter!!!!!!!! I am so starry-eyed still, I can't talk about it, except to resolve to get every DVD of every movie, ESPECIALLY Appleseed Ex Machina. I haven't wanted a robot boyfriend so bad since Optimus Prime. Briareooooooossss...♥♥♥ ♥ ♥

On the 25th of this month Blackwell Books will be hosting this event.

I signed up to staff it. :D

There's a lot of them lately--it was Germaine Greer today, but I didn't staff as it's only my first week. Am only sorry I missed the William Gibson, as it took place before I was hired and I only knew about it afterward. But am SO EXCITED for this one!!!

[livejournal.com profile] angelthorn, [livejournal.com profile] kurozukin_a, I could get you a signed copy of Ladies of Grace Adieu if you like?

My uncle took my cousin and me to breakfast--I had French toast with some lovely grilled bacon. And then tonight we went to see Spamalot and have dinner at our favourite seafood restaurant. Good all round.

Spamalot was so funny I looked older when I saw myself in the toilet. The laugh lines were that deep!

Last night I dreamed I was filming an episode of Prison Break from directly behind Wentworth Miller. I put down the camera, leaned forward and bit his ear (!!!). Unfortunately I don't remember what ensued; hope it was dirty >:P

It suddenly occurs to me that either I was really tall or standing on something in the dream--no WAY could I have reached Stinky's ear with my teeth in real life!

...So yes, [livejournal.com profile] jamieyk was here for the Underworld gig.

Also went to see "Dali and Film" but ended up not seeing most of the films as they're very long. Going back to sit them out, and J will see them when they come to LA in Sept. Like the museums in Spain, we got a bit over-saturated. Which isn't a bad thing ^_^

Anyway, it is time to get on with things a bit. I got an idea for a 24 hour comic; must arrange a day. Also, the washer seems quite well these days, so did some laundry! I love laundry!

wow.

Saturday night. Total Lunar Eclipse.

It was perfect. The sky was completely clear. The moon for once looked like a three-dimensional object, like an actual thing hanging in the sky. It looked like Mars too, with icecaps and everything.

I love it when Nature puts on special effects. Show 'em how it's done!

The new Vimto Jammie Dodgers give English Breakfast tea a very strange taste.

I keep reading books as I catch sight of them. There's three in my toilet, two in the living room, two on my drafting table, four on my desk, two in my bed and an innumerable number around the rest of my bedroom. As I get busier I just snatch up the nearest book to hand whenever I have a bit of spare time.

I am very excited; have a job as a storyboard artist! £100 for 7 scenes. Funny how these things come out of the blue; hopefully it'll lead to more jobs.

Free Range exhibits have opened! My friend Rachel is of the opinion that one could save an amazing amount of money by just buying monthly travel cards and going to art show openings every night. Free wine and food!

Well, back to work.

Friend Steph and I went to see Jamie Woon last night at Ginglik. We arrived over an hour early, so I nicked the best seat in the house--a huge leather armchair from which I had a perfect view not only of the stage, but of the artist's booth, the projection screen, and the rest of the room.

I loved all the performers, although my favourite bit was the on-site cartoonist. The event manager had set up a camera to look over his shoulder as he drew one complete cartoon for every song. There were six performers, each with three songs, so I was really impressed with how quickly he churned out work. It was really good, too. I would have ended up watching him more than the artists if I hadn't been inspired to do some sketches myself.

On with the picspam )

I am doing Senior Thesis this term. *gasp, flail, panic* Eeee, I can FINALLY get membership to the British Library!!!

Just redid the private projects and school projects pages for my website. They now have navigation bars, although those are in a state as I had a devil of a time putting them in; Dreamweaver doesn't seem to want to move them around. Bloody complicated program; I should just go back to coding it by hand.

In other news, besides showing Swan Lake, this November Sadler's Wells will be hosting....the Edward Scissorhands Ballet.

Ack, November looks so interesting I'll barely have any time for school.
