The Morrissey show last night was a wonderful experience. He did not perform "Last Of The Famous International Playboys", alas, but it was still a great show. His voice is still as strong as ever, and cass404 made flailyhands of excitement at each other through the entire thing.
One of the things that astonished me was that people climbed up on stage and ran at Saint Moz. I just wasn't expecting that to happen. Stage security did their best to intercept the fans and usher them off-stage, but at one point I think there were three different audience members dodging security. (cass404 and I looked hard to see if any of those fans were in a black suit, but no. morthael showed some sense and restraint.)
Sparkly vampire movie. Oof. Hey look, Cleolinda has put up the New Moon In 15 Minutes! You should go read that. What *I* will say about the werewolves and sparkly vampire movie is that I found it hilariously awful, wow the CGI was bad, the quote of the night was "It's a metaphor!", and I am devoutly glad that I took a flask of absinthe into the movie theater with me. (I do not usually condone smuggling alcohol into public events, but there was NO WAY I was getting through that movie completely sober.)
However, thanks to suffering through one travesty of something supposedly to do with vampires, I have decided that I have healed enough to tackle writing the long-threatened review of Dracula The Undead tonight. This is your warning.
I think my taste in footwear is regressing a bit. I can't really think of another reason why I'm suddenly browsing eBay for Dr. Marten's boots. Okay, part of the reason is that cass404 has these gorgeous corset Docs (clicky-link!), and I find myself quite enamored of them. What a pity that I'm pretty sure that a US size 6 in Docs won't fit me, otherwise I would have nabbed the pair I just linked to. But no, my shoe size is 7.5 - 8 -ish nowadays, and I fear those boots in a size a 6 would lead to pain and suffering. But they're very pretty.
Yes, I'm wearing black lipstick in this photo, which means that yes, I wore black lipstick to work. I'm quite pleased with it.
