How Democracy Works

I remember seeing this short animated film on a rental video once, I think it's quite good!

Leeds Festival

I've just had an awesome Saturday at the Leeds festival, and now that all my videos and photos are uploaded, I'll tell you all about it….

Well, when we got there, and after a little exploration we went to watch the Long Blondes in the NME/Radio 1 tent, who were OK. Then went over to the Comedy tent to see Andrew Bird, Jon Richardson and the simply excellent Lloyd Langford. Then we went to catch The Subways' set on the main stage, which I liked quite alot, despite never having heard them before.

The rest of the day was spent at or near the main stage. Fall Out Boy were OK, I suddenly became a fan of Belle & Sebastian, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were OK, then came the big guns (the two I'd actually paid to see more than any of the others).

The Kaiser Chiefs were simply incredible (and we got the additional surprise of them being introduced by Peter Kay. This is a clip of the opening to 'Na Na Na Na Naa':

Then came Franz Ferdinand who were awesome (although in my opinion, the KCs just tipped them for first place in the excellence stakes), and I managed to get a full video of 'Do You Want To':

All in all, a pretty good day! Then came getting home, which was surprisingly painless, but getting back into Bolton at 4am on Sunday morning (including a bus–load of drunk people from Manchester!)

All the pictures from it are here.
