Edinburgh is over. The Fringe at least; the city itself is still standing as far as I’m aware, but I am not in it any more. I have escaped to Bristol, after last night’s Leeds shenanigans which involved a rousing performance by my inspiration in skinny showmanship, Jarvis Cocker, and his superb and ageless band Pulp. I will now be in Bristol for some time, but also (during the month) Dublin, Belfast and maybe very briefly Melbourne. None of this sounds very relaxing but it’ll be more relaxing than August was, and who knows, maybe the blog will even go back to being interesting. I have some reasonably interesting news, actually, in the days ahead. Stay tuned.
