Busy, busy

Well, Alex is certainly getting me out of the house! Tonight will be my first night in this week, so I can sit around and geek in peace :) So far this week, I have...

Monday: KTB and Rachel Dadd at the Port Mahon. Not a trip out with Alex but with coalescent. Both ladies played very enjoyable sets and KTB seems to be well on the way to producing a second album, playing quite a few songs not on the first one. She's up for young folk musician of the year again - I wonder how young you have to be.

Tuesday: Pub as usual. Where I read an extremely pretty comic called "Animal Farm" (not the George Orwell one) which I might even buy my own copy of.

Wednesday: Pirates of the Caribean. We had planned to see Belleville Rendevous but it was sold out when we arrived at the last minute so a quick trawl of my Treo for other available films turned up Pirates which I still hadn't seen and Alex didn't mind seeing again. It was a thoroughly enjoyable film (if one where it's best not to engage your brain too much). The acting was pretty high standard (Norrington doing a double take with his back turned being particularly notable) although we wondered afterwards whether Orlando Bloom's range extends beyond straight-laced hero or not. The final fight scene was too long, but I often think that about fight scenes. Overall, thumbs up. I wonder about Pirates 2 though...

Thursday: Belleville Rendezvous. After our disappointment on Wednesday evening we'd picked up tickets to Thursday nights performance which turned out to have been a wise move because the queue when we got there was pretty busy. It was a highly surreal film. Very weird indeed. Almost no dialogue and 2 of the most bizarre chase scenes I think I have ever seen.

Who knows what's in store next week...
