tachikoma: celebratory

Hopefully this won't jinx it.

This will probably only mean something to crusty old rivetheads like me, but tonight, I am going to see Einstuerzende Neubauten play live, for the first time. I won't bore you with the details of the ludicrous number of scheduling clashes that have prevented me from seeing them prior to this in my 15 years of being a rivethead, but suffice it to say it's been almost as frustrating as Nine Inch Nails' new tour beginning in Vancouver BC the week after I depart from Seattle for my annual visit.

Nur die halbe Welt ist Teflon und Asbest - der Rest ist brennbar.

(Only half the world is Teflon and asbestos - the rest is burnable.)

Grah! *fists in the air*

(Favourite album: Haus der Luege. Streaming audio for one lovely track.)
