Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

Festival has gone. Am very glad and quite relieved and a bit sad. No longer able to sleep for any reasonable amount of time, and have felt the urge to start drinking at about 11pm which I still can't shake off. Difficult to face sunlight. Got bus home this morning with people on their way to work. I rightfully laughed in their faces. Next Monday should be interesting, when I am expected to join the human race again.

These are the shows I saw at the Festival, in roughly the order I saw them. The really good ones are marked in bold, and if you get the chance to see them, do. The ones in italics should be avoided at all costs. Anything else is entirely up to you. (Any repeat entries mean I saw them more than once. Obviously):
