Accepting responsibility for the consequences of ones actions...

It's a matter of being right about the distance of consequences that are your responsibility. Too near or too far will hurt yourself or others.

One man went to mow,
went to mow a meadow.
One man and his flymo,
went to mow a meadow.

I really should do the lawn more frequently. My poor little mower isn't really up to 6" long grass ("little" being the important property of this mower, I don't have much storage space).

...and ghods, is bindweed vigorous. I pulled out three wheeliebins full of it out of my hedge a while ago, and masses had regrown already. Between that and the brambles gardening is more like a struggle against nature than a hobby.

gig review

skelliga rocked. A little raw, but very good. If they manage to get everything a little more polished they'll be great. Still enormous fun to jump around to though. Ouch, my neck is stiff...

Rude Mechanicals are excellent too. They just manage to balance novelty and avant garde surrealism; competent enough musically to get away with some of the odder tricks. I liked the bluesy tones, and they could drop into decent rock. Not quite sure the audience really responded to the performance-art side though.

Rome Burns weren't quite as good as I was expecting. I hadn't got around to seeing them until now, despite having listened to their album Done & Dusted fairly often. For people who've been around for a while and have an album out and stuff, I was surprised that they really deserved their position as opening act.
