    Wot, no PA Story drinking game?

    We could play "Spot the Wham! song title". My partner managed to pick up two when I was reading it to him last night.

    I am terrified of an unreactive audience. Especially as I am on early enough that people may not have drunk enough enthusiasm yet.

    When I showed my One Piece animé music vid at Wellington Armageddon 2006, it attracted uproarious laughter. But when I showed it at the Auckland event later that year, the response was strangely more muted. There were noticeably a lot more foreign students and 1.5ers in the Auckland audience, who may not have been familiar with the works of Split Enz. Funnily enough, the judge is herself a 1.5er and she rated it one of the best she's ever come across.

    I want to go back to people openly screwing in the audience. And the selling of oranges. Let’s see how texting is going to bother you people then.

    I'll bring the oranges, but someone else might have to take care of the rest as at this stage I'm on my Tod, so to speak.

    DUDE! Stop doing that to my brain!

    I guess it just goes to show that high art like Space Battleship Yamato demands more of its audience than Macbeth did during its first run at The Globe :-)

    I want to go back to people openly screwing in the audience.

    Anyone ever get to go to 'La Scala' in London's King's Cross on their OE?

    Stories surrounding those nights are legion: the dope-fiend projectionist who scratched a CND symbol into a Pearl & Dean army recruitment ad and got the reels in the wrong order at a horror festival; the antics at the gay-themed all-nighters. "We had to try to explain to Serena the cleaner why there were so many used latex gloves on the floor after a lesbian all-nighter," says Giles. "I told her it was a fashion statement."
