Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Calling occupants of interplanetary Sheffield (and other associated folks)

Valiant - "Sheffield's first Doctor Who convention".

Anyone a.) heard of this and b.) going? I'm thinking plus side: cheap (£40:00) and central. Negative side - only one day, which is realistically going to mean travelling up on the Friday; probably staying in Sheffield on the Saturday too, but on the bright side there's normally something worth doing in Sheffield on a Saturday night (Corp); only one guest announced so far, but given the guest line-up that the same folks have got for a convention earlier in the year I suspect there will be many more.

All things considered I'm inclined to be going, although as it's limited to only 100 tickets I'll probably have to sign up after my next pay cheque comes through. Be interested to know if any other Flistees are going, though..?
Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Yeah...

...I just think this song is rather beautiful:

Now that it's over I find myself leaving
The sound permeating all directions at once
I never said goodbye to the family, lovers
Brothers and daughters, the rest of the bunch

It seems so strange that the things I was chasing
Have all evaporated like a distant dream
Petty ambition, petty obstruction
Something in between

And I really thought it would go on forever
Never believed they would sever the ties
All of the questions remaining unanswered
Stranger's reflection in a stranger's eyes

Here is a child playing in a garden
Here is an old man with a broken heart
Here comes a train to take you away
It all goes round and round and comes back to the start

I was never really sure what I was waiting for
When the moment came I was looking away
Obsessed with the past, scared of the future
Never took the time to be here today

And I really thought it would go on forever
Never believed they would sever the ties
All of the questions remaining unanswered
Stranger's reflection in a stranger's eyes

After everything now this happens
It's not a grand illusion, it's a stupid little trick
The show must go on, these people have paid
You're standing in the wings feeling kinda sick

Never really sure what you were waiting for
When the moment came you just couldn't choose
The fog sweeps down over the marine city
Standing backstage trying to put on your shoes

I really thought it would go on forever
Never believed they would sever the ties
All of the questions remaining unanswered
Stranger's reflection in a stranger's eyes

I'd think it was even more beautiful if it wasn't inspiring me to do yet another fanvid that I'll probably never get round to...
