Lost Post From Yesterday...

I've been a bit sick due to recent humidity. This is what I think of as 'flying ant weather', and lots of people have had 'days' in their area, but I've not seen them here in South London.
DVDs of the week:
PHENOMENA A delerious Dario Argento tale, a bit more coherent than usual, with some striking imagery. Eerie doings in 'The Richard Wagner International Academy for Girls' (!) Hojotoho!
LOST IN THE STARS Musical version of the worthily po-faced CRY THE BELOVED COUNTRY, but worthwhile for Weill's last score, with the beautiful title song.
127 HOURS Intense true story of the eejit who went climbing alone in the desert, had a bad accident, and ended up having to cut off his trapped hand to survive. Very well done, but I've never been able to understand why people find peasure in going to such places and doing such things. Tsk!


After initial ecstasy, I find I'm  still getting 500 errors  when i try to post images. Rowr!
I's effing bloody hot, too and still sooooo humid. I can only pray it freshens up a bit by CAPTION, although I'm doing an insane luxury visit this year's 'Austerity' edition. (otherwise I wouldn't get there at all-) I'm going by train (actually got a round trip online for £8.00; hope it all works out...) and staying at a B&B near the venue, so I can just go and flake out with CLASH OF KINGS if it all gets too much for me.
EASTENDERS' latest psychomaniac Michael is really fascinatingly bizarre-looking, and such a terrible actor, it's brilliant. Twice in the last week or so, we've had characters embracing while one looks over the other's shoulder with an expression revealing ambivalence at the least. Michael's evil leer ( 'I love you, Dad') over Eddie's shoulder was just utterly fabulous. In the meantime, the other psycho currently on the Square, GP Yuself is still trying to drive Zainab mad(der) with medication.
