All entries for April 2006

I went to see Derren Brown last night at the Warwick Arts Centre… was amazing! Seriously, he is a scary guy and he needs to be locked up, but he was super good. I don't really want to say what was in the show, in case anyone else goes to see him, but…
There was lots of scary mind reading stuff, and imagining animals and stuff (which I, along with the rest of the audience, got right, but Jon did not.), and there was some scary sick pain stuff as well.
My favourite thing was the subliminal video he played that made exactly four people in four specific seat numbers feel an overwhelming desire to get up and go on stage. They felt sick, their hearts started racing, their hands got all sweaty and they couldn't breathe properly, based entirely on their seat numbers! How, how?!?!
At the same time, I am a bit worried that I've developed an inexplicable predaliction for the number 14 and the colour blue… Hmmm…
April 19, 2006
Ok look. I'm really bored. I was going to watch Crocodile Dundee, but now I'm not. So I'm doing this instead, because I haven't got any other questionnaires to do. This one's from Sarah's blog. God I'm bored.
– Amount of music on my computer?
4.34GB That's fairly pathetic I realise, but I just listen to the same stuff over and over again.
– Five most listened-to songs?
1. The Killers – Mr Brightside.
This is one of my favourite songs ever, although it's hard to pick just one song. Just hearing the intro gives me a big lift and I give myself headache dancing to it, such an ace track.
2. Madness – Wings of a Dove
From my one of my favourite films, 10 Things, this is another song that lifts me, and it's a great dancing song.
3. Damien Rice – Cannonball
Lovely song. Granted, makes me cry if I'm a bit down, but it chills me out, it's so beautiful.
4. Greenday – Good Riddance
Reminds me of sailing on the Tall Ships for the first time, one of the best times of my life, total exhilaration and being at peace with the world.
5. REM - Orange Crush
Classic track, classic band, love the greatest hits album.
Oo oo, and baywatch, of course. The original, of course.
– Most embarrassing track/album?
Um yeah. How long do you have?
All of the Robbie Williams albums. But they're allowed, right? I've had them since I was young enough for them not to be embarrassing!
Avril Lavigne. From my youthful rock stage, when I had no shame…
Ian Dury and the Blockheads. Nah, screw it, I'm quite proud of that one!
Hit me with your rhythm stick.
Beat my embarrassment if you can!
