My laptop is misbehaving, so I haven't been able to blog much. That should be resolved shortly.

August's Travesties

By far the busiest month since I started keeping track... 48 different songs.

Me doing Joe Cocker has a future, I think. His earlier stuff is great fun for both me and the crowd, and you can pretty much just make it up as you go along and not have to worry too much about 'sticking to the script'. I refuse to do Cockeresque twitchy air guitar, though. Sorry ladies.

Inglorious Basterds

Thought it was quite good, but not great. Too many of Tarantino's tics were cranked up to full volume to really let me sink into the film.

District 9 is still easily the film of the year.
