As you can imagine I was feeling quite giddy earlier. So giddy in fact that I bought a camera on eBay. Some of my photography buddies on Twitter are getting together soon so I thought I'd be reckless. I've been more than happy with my point and shoot Box Brownie (and, of course, my phone) but thought it was high time I acquired a big boy's camera. I used to lug an old 35mm Praktica around with me when I was in my twenties. I'd take it everywhere (gigs, especially), but I dropped it once too often - on a trip to France I think - and can remember throwing it off a boat.
Talking of France (and gigs), my new favourite band have just released their second album. Les Grys-Grys, from Montpellier, are one of the most explosive bands I've heard in a long, long time. They make my pulse race (probably not a good thing when you're my age) and I can't wait till it's safe enough for them to come to the UK. I've already given notice that I'll be following them round the country when they do. I'll probably have a bus pass by then; but at least I'll be getting out more.
