Went to see Mysterious Skin yesterday with Guy. We thought it was really good. Emotionally impactful, creepy, upsetting, funny, and with good performances and some sweetness. We can't really see why there was a ban threat over it. But we felt like Defenders Of The Arts for seeing it anyway. We admit that it's not exactly breaking new ground, but it's done very well, all humanity-like, and the UFO thing works to propel the story too, so we say, "You, film, are good!" So, do see it, people. And not just for the "take that, Family Association! Try to dictate film choices for me, will you?", fist-shaking smugness either.

After that, went along to Camille's gig at the Vic in Brunswick. An extra good performance, this one. It was like she was transmitting emotion through her voice. Which, I suppose, is the point.

And thank you to whoever does this bloggy blog, for trawling across the Internets and finding us worthy.
