Quirks

Wednesday, 2nd July, 2003

Reading this stunning display of ineptitude reminded me of various silly things that have been happening lately that I haven't been writing down in my blog. Shame on me.

I should mention the great slug invasion that I foiled with panache a couple of nights ago. Well, if not panache at least a large bag of salt. My secluded Halifax courtyard is compact and bijou and hardly anything to shout about, but simultaneously, like any clump of German tourists, not one but sixty slugs decided to descend on it. Needless to say, the bag soon proved its salt.

I should also mention my exploits in record shops yesterday. I'm setting up a major new website dealing with extreme music in all its flavours, from lowercase sound (that is almost inaudible) to powerelectronics (which is loud and raucous noise). So I popped into the few record shops left in Halifax and asked the people working there to think of the most extreme music they'd ever sold. None of them had even heard of lowercase sound or powerelectronics and thought I was quite mad.

Fun times. More to come.
