Posted:sorry i never made it into town on friday night man! i made it in on the saturday though and met with lowan and a few of the manchester guys. Was well impressed, plus we got really close up, so close we could have touched it! i think the weather put alot of people off goin on saturday, as it was nowhere near as busy as i expected. I think that fact actually made the experience better, as everybody got a good view of la princess in all her finery!

Heilige Scheie, Batman kommt!

Reality is just a state of mind which occurs through a lack of lsd
