DO #1
AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH! It's Comedy Festival time! Daniel Kitson! Mike Wilmot! Demetri Martin! Chris Addison! Rich Hall! Arj Barker! Will Adamsdale! The Incredible Melk!

DO #2
Some CDs I have bought recently, which you WILL enjoy when you buy them too;

The Arcade Fire, Funeral [all of it is excellent, but especilly "Rebellion (Lies)"]

LCD Soundsystem, LCD Soundsystem [all of it is excellent, but especially "Losing My Edge"]

Beck, Guero [all of it is excellent, but especially "Go It Alone" and "Farewell Ride"]

Snap! Crakk!, And The Sea Closed In Over Us [all of it is excellent, but especially "Do The Death Get Dead"]

Queens Of The Stone Age, Lullabies To Paralyze [all of it is excellent, but especially "Burn The Witch" and "You Got A Killer Scene There, Man..."]

The Big Con, starring Max Gillies and Eddie Perfect. Don't go and see it like I did on Tuesday night. It's not good. Especially Max Gillies. And also the script. Eddie Perfect does some rather nice work, especially the bleak and accusatory songs. But, still, the show is generally bad, crap, etc. Not sharp or pointed enough. Not good enough. Also, considering recent developments, the Tony Abbott bit has dated rather fatally.
