Thank you for all the comments on the seafood question. Curiously, those who tend not to include fish are either people I'd consider foodies or aren't English. Well, you never stop learning...

Yesterday I finished work bang on time and went to the VUE to watch 300. I enjoyed it for the visual experience but wished they'd cut out all the unnecessary bits (as many others have remarked). The scene in the wheat field at the end really irritated me, even more so than the other cutbacks to Sparta, they should have cut straight to the battle of the 10,000...

After the cinema I met up with [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke for some rather fine pub grub at the Tram Depot (huge plate of Steak, Ale and Mushroom pudding with a mound of lovely red cabbage and roast potatoes for 5.50) and a chat.

Then we walked over to the Cellar Bar 8 where they were still sound checking so we had to wait outside for at least 20 minutes.
It was my first time there and it's a nice enough place to hang out but there are better venues for gigs. The sound was pretty good but there were no lights whatsoever (as opposed to the dim ones at the MotM) so I had to use flash for my photos.

Fire and Forget played a cool set and seemed to be enjoying themselves and the audience, while small, loved it, too, excellent. They certainly have potential and I wish them all the best!

Then, Victory Pill, bouncy, fun, moving whateveryoucallitthese days rock. I really enjoyed them although it's not really my kind of music.

My new earplugs worked so I don't have buzzing ears but I still want properly fitted ones and the ones I got muffle the sound too much (but not as much as foam ones would), I want some that are properly attenuating.

As I was feeling really tired (had just over four hours sleep the night before), I didn't go along to the Calling but home instead. I was still buzzying from the gig when I was home, though so I played around with my new brollies a bit and edited a short photo preview of the gig.

Now I'll have just enough time to take a relaxing shower, watch a DVD, get dressed and then head out for a fine meal.
