Happy holidays from Zwarte Piet!

(And yes, before you ask, the Dutch really do have people dress up in black face and run around scaring the bejeesus out of tourists. They're big day is actually December 5th, so it's like I got two Christmas celebrations this year or something.

Anyway, what have I been up to? Well, on Sunday the 11th, Max and I went to see Annie play at Paradiso. No, not the musical. Yes, the Norwegian Pop Goddess. It was pretty heavenly. He got some good photos that I'll have to steal at some point.

I came back to Manchester on the following Wednesday. I'll be hear until the end of January. Yes, I know that's a long time, but it's a very welcome change.

The night after my return, I managed to get a ticket off of eBay to see Ben Folds play at the Apollo. For those keeping score, this was the sixth time I'd seen him live. I dare say this was up there with the first time. He was really on top form, and it reminded me why I became obsessed with his music to begin with.

Apart from that, not much has been going on. Went to see King Kong with Paul and John last night. I really didn't have any desire to watch it, but it was one of those films I knew I should watch. I'm really glad I did. All the praise that is being heaped upon it is very deserved. Even the fight with the dinosaurs, which looked ridiculous in the trailers, worked well in the film. The only parts that looked REALLY bad were those when Kong was carrying Anne through the jungle.

Anyway, that's about it for now. Have a merry Christmas, ladies and gentlemen.
