Valley of the Dolls

At the moment, and for many moments to come I suspect, I'm cataloguing my backlist of photos properly using Lightroom. This is fairly horrific (you would not believe how many photos of the cat I have - or maybe you would...). But not as horrific as the picture I just found of my old collection of Barbies/Sindys which I took just before it was consigned to a rubbish dump somewhere during a major clearout of the loft a while back:

As you can see, I was particularly keen on the DIY aspect of doll-keeping: their clothes, their makeup and, particularly, their hair. No matter how many dolls I scalped I never grasped the fact that the hair is put in in a stripe down the centre of the head which results in an automatic mohican if cut. Hairdressing was clearly not a talent. But I did have the toughest looking bunch of dolls around...

Read me like a book

Going to have another shot at this in the daylight I think - the lighting was a bit crap, hence the strange crop...

Threads of Sound 5

It was the latest Threads of Sound gig on Friday. Unfortunately the giant octopus had to pull out due to illness (severe indigestion, apparently), but Ned Collette, If You Lived Here You'd Be Home By Now, RM Hubbert, and The Moth and the Mirror all played and sang beautifully...

Body Double

Bloodaxe Videos

This is less alarming than it sounds, unless you happen to have a terrible fear of poets (which you may): Bloodaxe Poets on Film. For some reason I can't get it to work on Firefox, but it runs okay on IE.
