I now have a uniform-inspired dress with home-made shoulderpads that would make Grace Jones proud. They are stiff and hard, to quote Herr Flick in yesterday's 'Allo 'Allo episode.

I'm experimenting with crossposting from Dreamwidth and fucked up - that's why some comments are missing. They are still here, though, and it's perfectly possible to comment on that post and others on the Dreamwidth account with a regular Livejournal account, if anyone has more to say on the subject. Sorry!

How gloriously kitschy is this on, say, a scale of 1 to 10? There's a skull with what seems to be crossed stick grenades, an imperial crown over a shield with a big, gaudy K and it says Sturmtrupp. Supposedly Austro-Hungarian, WWI, probably pewter or pot metal. I won the auction yesterday, will post better photos when I have it.

This will be interesting. I will probably maintain my LiveJournal too, but I really hope that this will replace most, at least, of my activities on LJ in time.

Edit: not too fond of the layout options so far, though. Wish I had the energy to figure out how to port the Disjointed layout, but I feel very lazy and extremely CSS-challenged right now.

Tech Noir has a new venue - that was fast. The first club night in the new location is in just one week, April 24th. Four bars and three dance floors, I hope the place is nice. I have resumed work on this project and hope to finish it in time for next Friday.

Other than that I feel thoroughly dull right now, you will have to wait for more Tinitus photos. The German film project is underway, we watched Das Testament Des Doktor Mabuse and Der Himmel Über Berlin last Sunday, this Saturday we're going for more Fritz Lang - probably M - and something a bit more contemporary. Good food and great company, so it's all very gemütlich.

From Saturday's gig, with good sound quality.


Also, photos are beginning to show up - here's a peek at that Red Army-inspired dress + cap I made for an acquaintance last fall, at long last:


We couldn't resist grabbing the guy in the middle for a couple of photos when he happened to be passing, some British guy who shows up at big events sometimes. I loved both his outfits for the festival. Great attention to detail, what with the make-up and everything.
Fredrik (that's a band plug and they are good, you should have a listen!) and I just asked Dirk Ivens to marry us both. Feels great to make a complete fool out of yourself in front of one of your heroes! I just hope he didn't think we were too much of a pain in the ass.

I am still high on endorphins after the Klinik gig. I'm not going to say that it was one of the best live shows I have ever seen, I'm going out on a limb and saying that it was the best live show I have ever seen. I think I will agree after some sleep, too.

Last night exceeded expectations - I met a friend from Malmö in the line outside (wish they would come up with a door solution that doesn't create one hour of queueing outside), which enabled me to skip most of it, and we teamed up for the rest of the evening, more or less - we have a lot in common, much to talk about, we matched pretty well visually, which is always fun (he wore jodhpurs and riding boots, hee), and each scared off pick-up attempts for the other. We also discovered that we were both big And One fans in our teens, and the And One gig was actually great, to my surprise - the best live act by far yesterday, although Combichrist were better than I expected. Steve Naghavi seemed more or less sober, for once, and almost the entire set consisted of very old material - I.S.T. and earlier, with perhaps two exceptions, and several from Flop! and Anguish. Not much from Spot, which remains my favourite And One record, but it was lots of fun anyway.

The Klinik will be playing an extended set tonight, I hear, to fill out for Die Form. Not bad.

First Tinitus night tonight, the lesser one - Noisuf-X, at some ungodly hour like half past eight, which is the only band I rather want to see tonight, and then local talents Trakktor, Combichrist, Suicide Commando and And One. It will be fun regardless, of course, but tomorrow is the important day.

Die Form cancelled sometime yesterday evening, due to illness. Bah. Still, The Klinik, Portion Control, a side project of Kirlian Camera (Spectra Paris) and whatever else there is, can't remember at the moment, is still a pretty great festival night.

Had a lovely time yesterday evening, and I really think the fact that I am not in the slightest bit hungover is a testament to P's cocktail mixing skills - he's another one of those domestic men who cook delicious food and mix fantastic drinks while walking around being outrageously handsome and incredibly well dressed, apparently, just like C's man, S. Lucky women, C and P's girlfriend E. I see all the bad sides of A up close as well as the good ones, so I can't romanticise him the way I can and do romanticise P and S. Ha.

Right, and I brought these home from Lisbon.



Much better than souvenirs, and will last longer than the two bottles of port I also bought. I'm thinking of a summer jacket in red cotton. The question is, would a sailor collar be completely over-the-top in a good way or a bad way? They so easily come off as a little childish, and that is not the effect I'm after.

Tonight I'm going to a party, for once - the invitation promises the blood of Christ plus small pieces of the body of Christ after seven o'clock tonight, and might just be the most sacrilegious document in my inbox so far. Good company, too. It'll be fun.
