Coulton'ed Out

Just back from the London Jonathan Coulton gig, and somewhat surprised that I seem to be the first person on my flist blogging it since at least 20+ SF fans were there. Maybe because I live about 20 minuites from the club. It was a VERY good gig, with a lot of my faves including Code Monkey, Mandelbrot Set, Re: Your Brains, Skullcrusher Mountain, I Feel Fantastic and maybe fifteen other songs in two sessions of an hour or so. Someone else can probably give the complete list, all I'll say is that it is a VERY bad idea to scream "All we want to do is eat your brains" repeatedly when you have a sore throat and an oncoming cold.

Soup, then bed - tomorrow I'm off to the Orbital SF con, hopefully without infecting too many people there. There's allegedly WiFi there but I probably won't be posting much because rumour has it as VERY slow, and I do have other things to do at a con. Maybe see some of you there?

LATER Very weird. One of the songs JC sang was a version of "Baby Got Back", which I'm not sure I've ever heard before, and I gather is usually performed as a rap song. And when I just looked at my flist anachrotech had a post with another version, again not exactly rap...
