I'll avoid an obvious Smiths pun here and just say that I dreamt I saw Red Hot Chili Peppers the other night. John Frusciante somehow managed to walk across the audiences' heads to climb down me and hold my hand. The entire situation was in slow motion to enhance the romance like in S Club 7 in L.A when Jon finds that blonde girl at the prom (yeah, I'm a big fan) It was quite beautiful and the crowd circled around us. John was a lot shorter than I expected and was wearing quite an odd sun hat but that wasn't important at the time. Anthony on the other hand was prancing about in just pink fish net tights and a studded belt then went back stage to share a hammock with Keith Murray off of We Are Scientists. Next thing I was introducing Thom Yorke to Wagner for a space hopper competition. What's most peculiar about these dream scenarios is that they're not that dis-similar from my normal thoughts when awake. And then in real life I discover RHCP are playing in the UK woooooooooooop!! If only Frusciante was still in the band my dream may very well have come true, I can still hope though.

I think the shop below might be my favourite place that I've ever been, it's like entering numerous different worlds at once without actually walking very far. Not long after I bought various Cure badges and a life size mannequin...
In no other place is it more acceptable to meander through a high street whilst balancing a pair of children's legs on your arm. I've never wanted Noel Fielding to walk past me more than I did in that moment, in a way it was extremely fun (excluding manoeuvring through the tube and dropping a leg on train passengers) ...that was a bit awkward, especially when a man with one leg sat next to me. Luckily I don't think he noticed that I had two spares. Lordy! the things I do for art.
