‘Back To Life’ – Soul II Soul

Tech plans are good now.  We’ve got a busy time ahead and only about 20 working weeks left in which to fulfil everything.  I have a project on Equity to be in next Thursday, after which I’ll be going on Work Experience – probably to West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds.  After that I have to do a project on forming a theatre company (with budget plans, and stuff).  Then I’ll be acting in LOOT, whilst hopefully writing a show with Jonny.  It looks like I’ll be doing the lights for Kenneth’s production of No Prejudicial Death by Martin Sterling.  After this, hopefully someone will direct mine and Jonny’s show, which should tour a bit and THEN there’s talk of a West Country tour of A Streetcar Named Desire.  All of which sounds really good.  If it all comes off…



‘I Want A Dog’ – Pet Shop Boys

Great!  Lilith came up to me today and thanked me, being greatly pleased with the mince pie.  Phew!  She then went on to tell me I can stay over one nite next week.  So we’ve decided on Wednesday.  I can’t wait!  Please let it happen, Mother Earth, please!



‘Burn’ – Sisters of Mercy

THE SISTERS OF MERCY/Eldritch interview in today’s MELODY MAKER.  I bought it and went into Tech, hoping to find a secret place in which to read it.  I found a place, but another had beaten me to it.  Stan.  There he sat.  I joined him, and what was he reading?  YES.  We’d both seen it, bought it, and there we were.  Eldritch.  Now I don’t feel quite so alone as we enter the ‘90s.  And those records are back on my turntable.
