Posted:I went to wales today! biggrin

I went to support paraguay in the pre world cup friendly footy match thing at the millenium stadium. And I had a fantastic time. The welsh folk were very friendly. There were 12000 welsh fans and about 50 paraguayan fans! The score was 0-0.

Anyhoo, I enjoyed your welsh land, thanks smile

Posted:Heylo all, I've come to be irritating and do advertising for my play. People in/near/able to get to Cardiff should come see it because (hopefully) it'll be ace and tres amusant. Pretty much all the details are here , but I'll just copy/paste a bit from the advertising email I've spent most of today sending out:



...we're performing for 5 nights from tuesday 7th march in the YMCA theatre ( map )

...doors open at 7pm (show starts at 7:30)

...tickets cost 5 for students/concessions and 6 for adults

...refreshments available during the interval

...to reserve tickets send an email to murder@act01.co.uk with details of the night you wish to attend and how many tickets you require...



If you can make it, please come, there's no poi-ing, but there is a poi-er (me!) and it should be a good laugh (fingers crossed!).

Posted:I'm not in Cardiff but both these events should be on :-
Tuesday nights, 9pm (ish) at the Hawaiian club on City Road, you can play with fire and glo things in a semi performance kind of space, with lots of food and drink and stuff.

Thursday nights, 8-10pm, come along to Ebenezer Church (Charles Street, around the back of Burger King and Next) for nofitstate circus' community juggling club, for poi and all sorts of other exciting juggle arts. It's just 2.

unless that is they break for Easter......

Posted:top o' the morning xorba! how's the being an art student going? it's it important that they also spin poi you know wink adds to the uh... artyness...

matty has indeed left, and I have been a slacker as usual (although with mighty fine excuses...), but fully intend to go to juggling club this week, where hopefully i will find mr Rossco and business continues as normal in the world of cardiff spinningness, so come along to juggling club or summat. smile
