TM10 Base  DirtyPhonics

Twas my first time in Romania last weekend alongside Kabuki for the TM10 Base Festival in Timisoara, met some great people, extremely kind and a lot of fun thanks to all that got us over there for the show :)

Now Im not trying to be ignorant at all (i was made to choose between history & geography in high school and saw myself as a historian rather than a traveller back then) but until looking in the back of the inflight magazine on my way to Romania i actually had no idea where i was going. In fact to sound completely ignorant the most i knew about this distance and quite romantic sounding land of Romania was that Dracula had once lived there…if you believe all you read or see in Hollywood epics you’ll also find the grounds of Highgate, Hampstead and Whitby quite hallowed however here i was en route to Transylvania…ok ok i know stupid it was Timisoara and i knew this shallow teenage vampire fantasy of mine was based on tired media steroetypes and so i was on my best behaviour on leaving the airplane and tried my very best not see Dracula references EVERYWHERE…..

Saturday night TV sucks!

Ok im trying to find something to ease me into an early sleep but theres nothing on the TV.  I mean absoloutely nothing….right now im watching James Van Der whatever from Dawsons Creek in a serious film about a Giant Squid?! My other options are more highlights from the Olympics…which i watched all day anyways heavy but overkill, a tribute to Crossroads…hosted by Julian Clary & Fearne Brittain say no more, festival footage from Reading and Leeds (live music is so overated on tv), Sexcetera…im far to horny to watch ugly people be freaky!!

I just want to go sleep with a nice film, interesting doc,  soothing audio…instead im pissed off becase telly is so fucking pants right now. Its Saturday night for god’s sakes, prime TV viewing, no wonder everyone is out binge drinking on the weekends in this country, theres nothing to stay in for  TV SUCKS ON A SATURDAY NIGHT. Heres the piece of poo im watchin disguised as a polished turd of a trailer…

They are now sailing out into the lake to kill the giant squid after it attacked someone on the pier…James has a plan…its so bad….im still watchin, more so cause i cant believe that he wanted to be the lead in this film…Dawsons Creek still gets re-runs right? He must be making change…enough, i would have thought, to say NO to action movies about killer squids. Killer Squids?!?!?! Giant Killer Squids…what the fuck am i watchin…who actually gave this project the green light? The best bit…its classfied as a horror…about a giant killer quid with one eye and its called ‘Eye Of The Beast’
