No crafting news to update due to the fact that, last night, I went to see...

Derren Brown, yay *grins* (no spoilers, I promise)

I love Derren, and seeing him live is always good - he's very funny and engaging, and the evening is filled with moments of "WTF?!" and "How in the hell...?!"

The set was utterly awesome. I didn't take a picture (because I am very rule-following, and the posters said not to *laughs*) so you'll have to trust me on this... It's amazing. A steampunk style set up, that I wanted to steal piece by piece and take home (Derren could come too, if he wanted *cheeky grin*)

I have to admit, this wasn't my favourite of his live shows. Primarily, I think, because it's still early on in the tour and there are still parts that need polishing, and partly because I was so blown away by some of the others that he'd have had to go some to top it! Also, the Reading Hexagon is a weird venue, that I've always found seems to suck some of the atmosphere out of the room.

Having said that, I'd still totally recommend it ;)


  1. Oooh I love Derren Brown. He's hot (in a creepy kind of way).

  2. I think he's too scary to be attractive. I saw one thing on tv where he was getting people to stamp on paper cups that may have had a knife underneath. Makes my feet twitch just thinking about it!

  3. @agirlinwinter - I know what you mean, hot but also wrong ;)

    @MsC - he is kinda scary, but live he is pretty charming. I have to say though, I haven't seen the papercup thing!


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
