Its an interesting few days for a cynic at the moment - the orange march in Dublin tomorrow might be worth going along to see, possibly from a discreet distance. I hate the orange order and everything they stand for but this is a bit of a first.
Then there's the relatively unverified reports in the Mirror this morning that half the dancers in Stringfellows have quit because they're not getting any customers. I have *no* idea what to make of that if it is actually true - are dubliners too sophisticated to deal with polyester leopardskin upholstery? are the potential customers deterred by the protests or a sense of decency? or is it just that they'd rather go to a club where actual lap dancing is allowed?
For my march reading I have decided that I'm going to have a go at "Fingerprints of the Gods" and "Will Storr vs the Supernatural". Chances are they're both nuts.
Edit: Also, issue 2 of that ImagineFX magazine is out now if any budding sci-fi/fantasy digital artists are interested.
