Tromafling and Edinburgh

Back from a frenzied few days in Edinburgh.

TromaFling was a blast. The organisers, Avone and Louise, have juggled together a programme of 205 movies, (from shorts to features), and are managing to attract audiences despite the myriad of other stuff going on in Edinburgh at festival time. Drunkenly babbled my way through a Director’s Q&A session after the screening, having forgotten to keep a decent track of my booze intake. Top fun.

Amongst the other shows we checked out were Radio Blah Blah from TrashHouse’s music composer, sound recordist and Zombie Doctor #1 Danny James, which was entirely unscripted, brave as hell and very funny. Danny’s archiving each show here: http://www.radioblahblah.co.uk/download.htm
(the show we were at was Sunday 14th if you fancy downloading it)

Got back to find that our cats had decided, in our absence, that the litter tray was very old-fashioned and pissing randomly all over the house was the next big thing. Less than delighted, especially since they got fed, watered and had the tray changed every day so it wasn’t like they had grounds to go on dirty protest. Living in fear of discovering more poo and wee as the evening progresses.
