    And speaking of up-for-it crowds, Haim's was pretty large. And enthusiastic. I wish I could have seen their set from somewhere other than 3/4 of the way back behind an eight foot tall dude, but that's the way of it for we shorties.

    Some shoulder-riding women in the sunset during the annoyingly-named-but-actually-quite-good Chvrches.

    No, they were definitely down for the Aroha/Tamaki stages.

    Really? The good, fun, non-concrete-bunker stages? (If you'll all just excuse me for a moment: WAAAAAAHHHHHH DAMON ALBARN YOU ARE A DOUCHE AND CLEARLY CALLED THIS OFF SO YOU COULD PROMOTE YOUR SOLO ALBUM AND I HAVE A GIANT SAD.)

    OTOH, that slow-roasted pork muffaletta in Chow Town was the *business*.

    I was actually pretty meh about the Arcade Fire for at least the first half of their set, but it wasn't their fault. I can count on the fingers of one hand the main stage acts that haven't left me a bit cold. I'm either too far away or, as a short person, unable to see a damn thing through the crowd. I wish I could see them in a much smaller, indoor venue.

    Moz, your conditions for compulsory sterilisation are confusing to me. First it was for hitting your children for any other reason than immediate safety, then it was for beating a child to death. I'm sure you'll agree that there is rather a wide gulf between those two...?

    I... think it's, uh, REALLY REALLY PROBLEMATIC, from a human rights perspective, to suggest forcible sterilisation for people who spank their children*. (I just didn't want to let that remark go by without comment, and it seemed to have.)

    *not me. I am not a spanker, or pro-spanking. FWIW.

    Aw, I wanted that to be a lot more funny than it was. I think I smirked about twice.

    Jesus Christ. I can get a PO BOY at the BDO? What sort of civilised madness is this?

    Aaaaaaahhhhhh he and the Expressions were so awesome aaaaaahhhhh! Thank you so much for the recommendation. I brought three people with me and they all loved it. (We had some tiny-child-related issues at home which meant we couldn't have a drink earlier, though. Sorry to have missed you.)

    Also, as a "lady" in the audience, I felt greatly appreciated. :)

    Belatedly: I read that Dr Hook piece a few months back and was actually crying with laughter. It's so, so good.
