A very weird experience. All that pent-up sexual energy going into dressing up as things with pointy ears. What was more bizarre was the Muslim even going on at the Excel at the same time. Hijab as cosplay anyone? Very confusing.

Nokia launch thing.

Nokia have a new flagship shop on Regents Street.

It's cool but no as cool as the Apple store.

They launched something tonight and whilst the cocktails were nice, the nibbles cool and the catering staff (big up to the unfortunately named Mange crew) excellent, it totally failed to engage me.

What was it FOR?

Apart from snagging a mouse mat, T-shirt...

Heavy Metal in Baghdad

Just got back from seeing Heavy Metal in Baghdad at the ICA.

If you have any RAWK in you soul you must see this movie. The story of four guys with metal in their souls trying to ply their trade as the only metal band in war-torn Iraq is deeply moving and left me wanting to get on the blower and organise an airlift of guitars and drums to Damascus (where they ended up).
